Thread: Opportunities for stalking in the highlands on Sika and Reds

    Opportunities for stalking in the highlands on Sika and Reds

    As in previous years (except last year) I am considering running a week for SD members on my 8000 acre lease in the highlands of Scotland. In the past this has consisted of signing off Level 2 portfolios for some members, and for others the experience of stalking the open hill and old caledonian forest which is present on the estate.

    The area is north west of Inverness and has accommodation on the estate, with a salmon river running through it (which I do not own the rights to, before anyone asks) At this point in time I am mearly testing the water to see if there is enough interest from the membership.

    The cost for the week would be 75 a stalk, no kill fee on spiker reds or sika. Mature beasts would carry a kill fee 350 either Red or Sika. The cost for the cottage would be split between all those staying and you buy and cook your own food. The week would be arrive Saturday and leave Saturday, last week of September. The week would be open to all, novices included.

    Thank you gentlemen and ladies.

    Best wishes

    Out of interest how many stalks during the coarse of the wk is expected 1 or 2 per day ?
    How many does the cottage accomodate ,dose every1 have to stalk ?
    Can salmon / trout fishing be arranged ?

    The cottage, depending on which one we use for the guides to stay in will hold 5 people very comfortably. You can expect to undertake 2 stalks per day, weatheer and conditions permitting. You do not have to stalk everyday, but I would not expect someone to come up for a week and only stalk once or twice (that would be taking the p).

    As I said NO FISHING. This is pure stalking for Sika and Red.

    I've re-opened the SD stalking section and moved this in there.

    attn all,

    I have done this week.
    I did it with various members from the forum.
    Anyone who attends this will come away with a smile on their face.
    The stalking there is for all degrees of stalkers.
    I had some accompanied stalks with members that malc brings up, all very good guys and treat you as one of there own.
    If you only get a week of the year to go shooting well this is where you should go.
    cant wait to see the pictures

    I had better make sure the camera is charged up, just in case there is an interesting moment or two to capture

    Does that mean a days stalking with two stags will cost 850 ? (350 + 350 + 75 + 75) plus tips & accom of course.

    No it doesn't add up quite like that deerpath. I think if you are interested you had better drop SikaMalc a pm. I had a week up there the last time and it was good value for money and very enjoyable mainly due to the very friendly helpful nature of the guys involved and also because of the good company of the other shooters. I am seriously considering asking if I would be allowed to go again and have mentally already pencilled in the last week of September in the diary.

    Malc, I know I pm'd you to say I was interested but you didn't tell me "The Silver Fox" was planning on putting in an appearance. I might suddenly have to become "unavailable"
