I am very new to this game and will be relying on paid outings for some time I feel - until I have sufficient experience and find the holy grail of my own stalking.
With this in mind and reading various adverts for stalking, I am amazed to see a fair few have a 'shot fee'. Now don't get me wrong, I get the fee for an outing (someones time) and the trophy fees and buying the venison, but a shot fee?! You are booking stalking, not deer watching, and to me stalking requires a shot, surely?!
Am I missing something, whats the thought behind this and how common actually is it?
