    Hi Bozzy,

    Eskdale W&W was founded by the great Ronnie Rose - I think in the 70's. He is very very highly respected among stalkers, and most everyone who knows about management of woodland. I belive the company is now run by his son (also called Ronnie I think) who seems a top notch bloke when I have spoken too him, and I know a fair few folk who have stalked there and really enjoyed it. The quality/size of his patch is not known to me, nor his succes rate.

    I have no knowledge of EWWM but found a couple of videos whilst looking on youtube which may be of interest.

    As Sam says, Eskdale W&W was founded by Ronnie Rose, one of the god fathers of forest management/deer management in Scotland, a much respected man in the stalking world, his son Ronald now runs the business and Ronald’s son was also helping out. I am not sure how much land he now has but it was thousands of hectors in and around Eskdalemuir.

    Go you will have no worries, it is a great opportunity to learn, if you can find a copy of Ronnie’s book “A Rose between two thorns” it is a great read.

    He has Roe and Sika on the land and Ronnie is a great bloke. Tell us about it when you get back mate.

    I was up there back in March, as already said he's a very nice bloke and all of the stalkers that i met were top blokes. I dont think you will be disapointed.
