Christian discovered a passion for hunting and target sports later in life and, in a break from the norm, introduced his own father to target shooting. Growing up with the North York Moors and its Jurassic coastline on his doorstep he has always felt a strong connection to the outdoors, yet he will tell you he never feels closer to nature than when he is out with his rifle stalking his favourite quarry, rabbits. Small game hunting and the joy of putting meat he has harvested on his family’s table has now led Christian into the world of deer stalking. Christian completed his Deer Stalking Certificate 1 in 2021 and is relishing the fresh challenge of stalking this majestic quarry over hilly terrain. His family are also enjoying eating something other than rabbit!
Christian is also a very keen Precision Rifle shooter, competing for Team Jackal, and is actively engaged in promoting and growing the sport in the United Kingdom. As Media Officer for the Great Britain Precision Rifle Association, he is a founding member of the executive committee and has played a fundamental role in building the association’s membership to where it is today. In addition to his media work, Christian also supports with the organization and running of International Precision Rifle Federation world championship qualification matches and has also match directed.
Anyone who follows Christian on social media will know he has a good eye for a photograph, yet it is his story telling that really captures the essence of his hunting and precision rifle adventures. Christian hopes that his stories and pictures inspire others to take up hunting and target shooting or, at the very least, provide enjoyment and a sense of having been there.
