Thread: looking for rough shooting/stalking ground.

  1. #1

    looking for rough shooting/stalking ground.

    I am looking for some areas of rough shooting, stalking. I am based on the Black Isle and I do have one small farm but would really a little more, purely for getting a roe into the freezer maybe three times a year. I do know a good number of the land owners as I have lived here for 15 yrs but most of the place is sewn up, you know who you are.
    I have been shooting in one form or another since I have been 10 that was 33 yrs ago so I have experience, I also used work on Assynt, Tulchan and Castle Leod and now work for an RFD. I am sure it used to be a lot easier to pick up shooting, anyway if anybody has land they are giving up or no longer require I would like to be considered.
    Its a bit cheeky for a first post I know but as my mother said if you don`t ask then you don`t get, then she said no!

    Welcome Gus! I can offer you unlimited grey squirrels in my garden, unless of course they're CIC trophy class in which case it's 300 for a bronze, 400 for silver and 1000 for gold medal squirrels.

    Not so silly, perhaps. I met people, who were paying 25 a day to walk round woods with an air rifle 30 years ago.

    Well if your urban greys are worth 1000's I will ship some corn fed country ones down to you and split the profits 50/50 !!

    Thanks Chris, but there's enough fox food in my garden as it is... I need to pick up with you about the forthcoming shooting season actually, although obviously I wouldn't presume to shoot your valuable squirrels.

    What calibres your garden cleared for?

    At the moment it's just water pistol and small-bore bubble gun shaped like a dolphin.
