Mixed feelings today some sad some happy
Due to one of the estates I lease being sold I'm off later to take my high seats down all 15 of um ! Still not sure if I will retain the stalking with the new owners but you never know . I have had several good years there so I can't really grumble but its always sad when things you get used to change . The other bad news I just had was a call from a gamekeeper in Wiltshire whome I buy good roebucks from , he has a number of very good areas where he looks after and manages the roe very well and most of these areas produce medals every year , on one of these areas he had at least 4 good bucks one of which was going to be took this season and the other 3 left till next year.Well he was on the ground last week looking at this buck when it went through the hedge into the adjoining field which is still part of the same farm , a few seconds later there was a shot and the buck is no more ! On investigation low and behold there is a very well known celebrity chef in the gateway !!!! It later transpired the chef has now rented the ground off the farmer and three of the four bucks are now gone . Needless to say my gamekeeper friend is gutted that this has happened .
Well on life goes and I have just found out we now have the lease on another very good estate that we have been working on for the last three years so maybe the 15 seats will be standing on a new home by the end of the week
