    If you were successful in tendering for both so

    17,850.00
    + 5,950.00
    =23,800.00
    Then if you get all 5 years gives you

    23,800.00
    x 5
    =119,000.00

    It does not appear to be a great business proposition to me. More money than its worth.

    As much as I'd like to apply I dont meet all the criteria for the tender.

    If anyone on here does get this I'd be interested in any syndicate thats set up.

    Seems quite a good oportunity up for grabs being paid 23 grand a year for shooting less than 1 deer a day.
    For someone who lives close by you could work it round a full time job
    John Cadman is a good drop him an email he will tell you straight what its like

    I would doubt this could be worked round a full time job, by the time you take fuel, ammo, vehicles of this you are not making much.

    Like I said not much of a proposition, you will also need a quad or some form of extraction tool, otherwise you will be taking a long long time to get your deer out!!

    1 deer a day, much depends where you drop your deer, could take you the best part of the day to retrieve it!!

    I have recent emails from Kate Barnsley who has spoken to John Cadman (Wildlife Manager) which suggests that Recreational Stalking leases will be no longer available , What that statement means I am not sure.

    It appears from the above they intend to tender the management of deer out as and when areas become available maybe to deer management groups ,but thats only a opinion on my part not whats been stated
