A very good friend and ex gamekeeping colleague of mine has just taken on the sole running (Gamekeeping wise) of an estate in the south west of scotland. We were chatting recently regarding the roe stalking on the place, and he asked me what i thought was a reasonable fee to charge for an outing?.
We discussed NOT charging trophy fees as you only know if you've shot a 'medal' once it has been measured by a cic judge, and besides.....there is a credit crunch going on!.
There will however be a small charge for boiling out, again what would be a reasonable fee?.
As i have not paid for outings in a long time, nor had to pay for a head boiling, i thought i would ask all you good people for some feedback, so we can then look into his stalking venture a wee bit deeper.
