A query about arranging a lowland stalking licence, from the landowner's perspective:
I manage a large farm where I am looking to let out the fallow/roe/muntjac stalking to a local chap. The opportunity for the soon-to-be-licensed deer manager to make a few quid out of the sheer volume of deer here has not escaped me. I want to draw up a lowland stalking licence where neither the stalker or the landowner is ripped off.
Has anyone on here worked on the landowner's side of the fence, and able to advise on how such an agreement would be priced? I am thinking along the lines of a base rent, with a share of any trophy fees/accompanied stalking fees/venison sales.
Any advice would be appreciated. As I said, the landowner already has a stalker earmarked for the job.
