I am aware that this may fall on deaf ears but I'll post it anyway as a means of dispelling some of my frustration...
I've been stalking for years, at least 15, and have enjoyed shooting and stalking on friends land in Yorkshire. I have been very fortunate. The land isn't very productive on the deer front and it's more often than not nothing more than a well armed walk than a stalk!
Work and family life are now chocka and I thought about booking some days stalking in the borders, or southernish Scotland to tide me over until the annual trip for the hinds way up north.
Streuth stalking is expensive!
Apologies for for the outburst. I'm aware of how rates are built up. It is still too expensive for me!
