I am looking to acquire new stalking ground and have some local farmers which are interested in renting out the stalking on their ground. The stalking I have currently was achieved by working up the ranks starting with pigeons then foxes then asking nicely for the deer so I have never paid rent for stalking before. The farmers who are interested have also never rented their stalking so we are at a stale mate, neither of us know what a suitable figure actually is!
Is there a simple formula such as a X amount of £££ per acre of ground or something similar?
The ground is mixed arable and woodland and contains mainly roe with occasional red deer.
Forgive my ignorance if the answer to my question is very obvious but I have been exceptionally lucky and not had to pay for stalking before.
