Thread: s/scotland

    s/scotland

    A good bud has asked me to test the water, for stalking/ hunting syndicate in southern scotland ,west side ..... he has 160 acre of woodland & open roughland, approx 65/35 . He has a good number of european reds & some roes, as well as the usual pigeon,rabbit etc. what number of persons would be ok, for a syndiacte & how much for a reasonable price would the lease be worth for stalking? he is thinking of introducing goats for scrub clean up, & boar. Thanks

    106 acres surely not big enough to sustain syndication interest is it? I may me wrong ,probably better letting the occasional day out accompanied on an infrequent basis I would have thought.

    S Scotland is a wide are. Are we talking east or west. 160 acres is not really viable for holding that many deer. Transient deer however flow through certain areas. Ash holds a lease where though few resident reds they transit through the area giving opportunity. East scotland could be of interest and I know others who may be interested. It would need a survey if no cull figures are available. If I can help give me a shout.

    Hmmm i would have thought 160 acre , quite a bit of woodland, especially to sit or stalk , on a warm day (like now ) it quite hard work tracking & wandering around. There are some good places to sit, if you a fisherman type hunter. its west coast

    160 acres is really not much.

    As Jimbo says, it might be of some use if it's a sweet spot but even so your options to stalk are likely to be very limited. It's probably just a high seat prospect I'd think.

    If you start talking about 160 Hectare blocks, then, it's more likely to be a worthwhile.

    you will sell it to ten new stalkers at 1000 per space,

    i am sure you see that i am been a little sarky.

    i shoot a bit of land similar to what you have described less the red deer pop,
    it is not sustainable as a syndicate land.

    the reasons been apart from the small size versus amount of guys who shoot it and then deer rehabitation.... why would you possible attempt to sell such a piece of land to stalkers...

    maybe the best first post would have been

    what number do you expect to get on this acreage
    what amount would you take

    A stalking rent is worth as much as the top bidder is willing to pay......
