Andy Chadderton is a professional deer stalker and firearms instructor, based in Scotland, where he lives in a low key and relatively self sufficient manner.
Andy started shooting when he was a boy and has been a pistol and rifle instructor for decades. He’s also a qualified range conducting officer. Andy loves to help people shoot to their best ability.
As a deer stalker, Andy holds the Deer Stalking Certificate Level 1 and Level 2, as well as being an approved witness for others wishing to undertake assessment for DSC Level 2. Along with his colleagues, Andy also regularly teaches DSC Level 1 courses.
He is part of the small but highly experienced team at the Stalking School, which is located in the North East of Scotland.
I’ve known Andy for a number of years and we have always got along very well together. I like to visit Andy at least once per year, normally in October, after the River Spey canoe trips I do with clients.
So, it was that I was staying with Andy for a number of days and, during that time we sat down to record this podcast.
I was keen for him to explain what his work entailed, particularly for the benefit of a wider audience who aren’t so familiar with deer stalking, deer management or shooting in the UK.
