Apologies if this is a bit basic for more experienced forum members. So be gentle.
If I manage to get my first ever days stalking arranged in January, is it OK to wish to take the carcass? For instance, red/sika hinds on 1:1 accompanied day somewhere in the Highlands?
I believe there is a fee plus cost per kilo for doing so, but is it seen as the "right thing" or a breach of etiquette?
For me, a fundamental of hunting/fishing is don't kill anything you are not going to eat personally, unless it is classed as vermin. Cooking is a big hobby as well so all ties together nicely.
I would be grateful for any guidance to avoid loss of etiquette on other issues on this initial trip? The Stalking School will probably beat me into shape in further down the line.
