Perhaps i have been lucky but in over 20 years i have never been asked to stump up cash in advance for deer stalking, until now.
A 400 acre farm on the edge of Dartmoor with Red and Roe, i believe it hasn't been shot over for at least 15 years and i know there are a good head of red deer in residence.
The shooting rights for the game shooting will be rented separately to the deer stalking.
When i first started stalking i was offered cash to sort out the deer, what a turn around, but i can't blame any landowner for trying to squeeze a few extra quid out of their land.
I have different arrangements with different landowners, some take venison, some cash from proceeds, some take nothing at all, so i am completely in the dark on this one, please pm me if you feel you can't post up details on this thread.
Thanks in advance.
