Really sorry everyone - had no idea how much interest this would generate. Just goes to show that there are plenty of well qualified, high quality guys out there looking for stalking.
I tried to PM everyone back individually but the site is quite strict about sending messages out on mass so apologies if I didn't get back to you all.
The guys are now sorted for a team to bid with. I know lots of you are going to bid too, so really good luck. I hope the Forestry Commission notice just how high th interest level is and puts a few more blocks up for tender.
Two very experienced DSC2 qualified stalkers are forming a not-for-profit syndicate to secure some forestry commission concesisons in Oxfordshire.
They'd like two others to join them.
They've sucessfully bid for forestry commission tenders before and expect to have a good chance this time too. The opportunity is that the two guys will complete the tender on behalf of the syndicate in return for paying a smaller share of the concession fee. All fees will be agreed between everyone before the tender is submitted.
The right partners will have good access to the sites which are:
1. South of Stoke Row, Oxfordshire
2. Near Christmas Common, Oxfordshire
They must also have an FAC with deer suitable calibres and moderators and be DSC2 qualified.
Ideally, they will also have access to a 4x4 vehicle, first aid training and a manual handling qualification.
If interested, let me know and I'll put you in touch.
They're really nice guys and are looking to partner with similar. Must have a good outlook on life, willing to have a beer after a day's stalking, respect the quarry and their environment and be serious about protecting the tree crop.
Hope this is of interest.
