Thread: Deer Stalking - Anyone know these people?

    Deer Stalking - Anyone know these people?

    Hi all, been looking for some deer stalking in south east and found Turvey Stalking

    Seems a lot cheaper than all the other ones I have looked at, and no trophy fees. Trying not to be negative but the low cost made me a bit curious as to why its so cheap! Does anyone else have any knowledge of this stalking opportunity or the guys involved? Basically, is it any good?

    I know someone who lives in the area around this shoot and they say its packed with deer so I might just go along and try it out, but be grateful for any comments from people who might know more about them.

    Thanks muchly

    Are they cheap or are the others expensive , that's all I charged for fallow and roe no extras, if they own the land, there costs are lower.

    Hi Taff, thanks. I hadn't thought of that. Don't know much about how stalks are organised but thats a good point. Will email them and maybe ask if they own the land. I don't know why but I just sometimes feel if something is cheap then there is a catch, maybe I spend too long on Ebay!!!!!
    Good point though and if you think thats reasonable if land is owned then I am game to try them. If anyone else has used them please PM me or reply here, thanks

    Bills offer to pay at the end of the day, if they agree you know they Are honest, looking at there web site they have a pheasant shoot so the deer are regarded as vermin and a add on as they are extinguish there pheasant food.

    not that I am picky (much) but the site has no human contact details, phone number or physical address. The email address to contact is a graphic not a link or text to copy but a days stalking is worth 120 of my dosh if it's legit.

    Thanks Taff. Not sure I feel comfortable asking to pay at the end, since there are so many scammers out there these days that I might make them feel I am one of them looking to buy a dinner then leg it out the door! I might pluck up the courage. Will get in touch and see how the land lies. A lot can be gleened from a personality in my experience, so since nobody seems to have any prior knowledge of these people I think maybe I should start by getting in touch for more info. Will post back.

    Paul - thanks for that also. You are clearly of a mindset similar to me, i.e. its wise to actively look for red flags because if you dont you kick yourself later for ignoring/missing them!! For what its worth, I am a web designer myself and have had a lot to do with online promotions, sites etc. This graphic is a common trick designed to prevent spam bots trawling the web at a million miles an hour harvesting any text which get auto-added onto spammers databases. Sometimes I have seen spam start flooding in within a few hours of posting an email address as text on a site or forum. I don't have any concerns with that particular point as it is the safest way to publish an email address in my experience. The nature of spammers is that they use fast software and can't be bothered to type in emails, if it isn't harvestable as text its ignored, a neat spam prevention idea. That was until some really clever software was developed which can now read text rendered as images! So they say anyway. Time for new methods I think!
    Will contact them and see if anyone is on the end of it though!!!
    Cheers chaps

    Looks very professional to me, contact is always better via e mail for first contact as there is nothing worse than ringing up and getting no reply because the man is busy stalking etc.
    Bill, if you do a runner they call the police and report you for taking goods by deception, plod then says you are not a trust worthy person and revokes your firearms cert, end of your stalking activities, having threatened a bloke who bounced a cheque on me for a gun with this I can assure you it works.

    My thoughts aswell Paul

    I would prefer to see a contact name
    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...

    looking at their T&C's without their offer it is 85 per stalk or 150 for two M&E still not bad as there are no extras for the shot or Trophy but if you are going to book i suggest that you read the T&C's first
