lakelander and heym rifles.
not much stalking or fishing for 15,000 a year rates
Plus you have to pay the keeper and housekeeper!
seems viable to be honest,
20 stags and 15 hinds
40 salmon and 50 sea trout
all that equates roughly to
20 x £100 £2000
15 x £75 £1125
40 x £50 £2000
50 x £30 £1500
Thats £6625 and say £3000 on top for blank days meat etc
If you charge for accomadation £3/4k year revenue
Then any other let days on birds etc etc.

if anyone from here does try it i wish you the best.

The expression "Money Pit" comes to mind.
from the agent,
£85k to run per year on average

i was wrong, a little bit
