After being a syndicate member for two years on a great piece of ground in the Scottish Borders I have been told by the lease holder that the syndicate is not going to run beyond April 2015.
So I have this winter to enjoy the ground and will then find myself with very little stalking for the following year.
A bit of a long shot I know but I thought a little post on here may turn something up.
I currently go with a mate as this shares the travelling cost and to be perfectly honest makes the trips more social and enjoyable.
We do put a lot of time on the ground and will have had some 48 days on the ground by April. We shoot the lions share of the required cull as other members don't fill their own time on the ground.
We both hold DSC level 2, ATV licences, Emergency first aid at work (including lone worker), manual handling, insurance, in short enough paper to destroy a forest.
We are looking for some quality stalking. And would prefer Sika or red. However Fallow or Roe would be a change.
We are happy to stalk anywhere in the country, but distance is of course a consideration.
At present we tend to stalk in 3-4 day visits over a weekend.
Although currently we have had little chance to dig in and help out on the ground we are prepared to build and supply high seats, cut clearings etc.
If you have anything in the pipeline and run open, honest, good humoured syndicates we would like to hear from you.
I hope there is something out there and look forward too receiving some PM's.
We realise our high number of days may put some off so may have to consider a couple of syndicates. However this may be beneficial to us to provide variety of species or environment.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
