Not sure if this has been discussed before but I have come across a few who quote a fee for "missing a shot". I can understand a carcass fee if the shot was misplaced or if the animal was wounded and lost. But, is it fair to charge the client a fee for missing a shot?
The way I see it, if you expect the client to accept the fact that you may not see anything shootable in a given outing - "that is part and parcel of stalking", then it should also be accepted (by the guide) that people sometimes will miss a shot (again "part and parcel of stalking"!). Charging for a missed shot puts more pressure on the stalker and makes the stalk that much less enjoyable. I am very interested in what people's thoughts are on this topic?
