I recently got an email about stalking available at short notice and was very surprised at the prices quoted as I thought it might have been discounted slightly as it was such short notice.
Full day (2 stalks) £250:00
Evening stalk £150:00
4 point buck £75:00
6 point buck £150:00
£225 for an evening stalk including a 4 point buck seems a lot. Obviously it is the buyers choice as to whether they go ahead or not and the advert does make all costs clear up front.
I remember going out one morning with Wayne Davies and shooting 3 roe bucks (including at least one 6 pointer). It was a fantastic morning and didnít cost a lot. Looking at the prices above that would have been at least £450 for the morning. I know it can be pot luck when stalking and I have on two other occasions paid for stalking with others and was disappointed with the day. For anybody on a tight budget going to a professional is going to be costly. There are other alternatives available, just make sure you get a recommendation. For those who have access to free stalking, be thankful for it.
