Emily Padfield

Emily Padfield On behalf of my partner Mark Warner and I - I would like to recommend Derek Stocker as a genuine, first class hunting tour operator. We met at the shooting show in February, and having decided on a trip to Africa we visited and spoke to a number of companies, we decided on Prostalk because of Derek's openness and honesty. We both travelled to South Africa for a cull package and can honestly say that it far exceeded any expectations we both had. He delivered everything he set out and so much more. Derek is an unassuming chap, but he knows both hunting in the U.K. and abroad, so can tailor trips to what individuals are looking for. We have met friends and had experiences that will remain with us forever, thanks to Derek setting up such a wonderful trip, with both fantastic,challenging hunting and great company. Truly the stuff dreams are made of (sorry for the corniness!).  So much so that we hope to join Derek on this German boar trip and again next year in SA. Mark would be happy to speak to anyone via phone (he's not into Facebook ?) to explain more.  Thanks again Derek and your team for such a wonderful and successful trip in May and look forward to seeing you soon.

My first trip to Africa and for it, I chose ProStalk Safari and I was not disappointed. Living in Wiltshire Derek the boss of ProStalk picked me up on his way to Heathrow. I was a bit concerned about getting my rifle, all my ammunition and my shotgun through, Heathrow, through Johannesburg and out at Kimberley, everything went smoothly. It was tedious as they checked the guns at every point and there is quite a lot of paperwork to complete but Derek guided us through all of it. The same on the way back. We were met at Kimberley by the Rob Klemp and looked after by Derek and Rob right through the trip. There is never a shortage of anything plenty to drink, eat and we entertained ourselves although, to be honest, the days were busy so it was good to get into bed each night. The accommodation is basic but clean and tidy, the food was great a good variation and some local delicacies just what a group of hunters want. So how was the hunting? Well, you will not be disappointed, I wanted to shoot Springbuck, Impala and Wart Hog I got to shoot all 3 and I added, Blesbuck, Kudu, Wildebeest, Steen Buck and Red Hartebeest as well. It was a management package I had booked but I was not disappointed with the animals I shot. You do cover a lot of ground and the vehicle is essential but I shot from foot as well as the vehicle. Adding to the excitement of the trip they took us Sand Grouse shooting twice, great little bird and we did well once we got into it with shooting 120 birds on our second outing with 4 guns. We also went out on 2 evenings lamping and shooting Spring Hare, which was great fun. Would I go again, yes, would I go again with ProStalk Safari, I am already booked in for next year.

Wild Boar, Guntersen, Germany 14th September – 20th September 2016-09-23 Although I have shot driven boar several times I have always flown to the location, this trip organised by Derek Stocker of Prostalk gave both me and a friend the opportunity to drive via the Hull Rotterdam overnight ferry followed by a 4 hour drive on the Autobhans through the Netherlands and Germany to Guntersen. The idea was to use high seats at night and possibly stalk early morning, there was also a chance of shooting during the maize harvest but due to a slight mix up we arrived too late to join in, pity because the rest of the party got 4 or 5 good boar.  Arrived at the gasthaus in the village and prepared to go out that evening, met our guide Thomas who sited us in good high towers near feeding areas, and with a near full moon rising the portents were encouraging. The intention was to sit out until about 2 am in the moonlight with the strict instruction not to shoot any sows and do not go looking for anything shot!  Shortly after 10pm I heard some noises in the bushes and in the gloom made out a dark shape moving around, as it came out into the moon light I could see it was a wild boar – male or female??? I was using my binoculars and a hand held thermal but struggled to identify the sex until it turned sideways and I could easily see the spinal crest, I quietly cocked the Blaser R93 and placed a 7mm Rem Mag 160 grain round into the beasts chest at about 35 yard range. The joys of night shooting – totally lost vision due to the flash and there was no boar in sight – did I miss? I didn’t think so but I followed instructions and did not go and look.  About an hour later another boar came under the high seat – same one? I pondered, slowly cocked the rifle again but as I manoeuvred in the tower to get a shot I made a small noise – end of feeding boar, boy was he quick to vanish.  Decided to call it a night around midnight and returned to the hotel for an inquest, we decided to have a short sleep and go out again at 4:30 for a stalk.  Off we went back up to a different part of the forest but had a fruitless trip, Thomas then decided to get his dog out and we returned to the high tower I had taken the shot from. About 25 yards past the possible shot site the dog found a single spot of blood, he quickly followed a trail into the undergrowth and 10 yards further on found the boar quite dead shot through the chest, some 70 yards from the tower. I would never have found it the previous night.  It weighed about 50 kgs and had what appeared to be a small set of tusks but I sawed the snout off anyway and took them home – turned out to be a respectable trophy when mounted. Nothing came in range for the rest of my trip although we heard and saw them at a distance and the turned up earth was fresh every day. Summary A good trip and compared to “driven” more relaxed and a lot less strenuous for the more mature, Thomas tries as hard as he can being extremely professional and has plenty of boar around in this area and I am keen to return and also to try the maize harvest experience. Off duty hours were spent either sleeping or visiting local gun shops and also on the Driven Boar Cinema Range about 10kms away – what an experience, almost as good as the real thing. It was great having the car as we could carry so much more gear and spare rifles etc.  Tony Charlton
