    I used to visit Callander as a kid. The rabbits up there are worth paying for!

    It will depend if you are going with a professional, someone who is making a living from guiding, or someone who is just making a few quid pocket money.

    If you go out for a shift at work how much would you be looking to earn? A guide making a living is no different, they have to pay the bills as well.

    I wouldn't do a shift at any type of shooting/guiding for less than 10 per hour, from which I have to pay expenses, tax...etc

    Tell the farmer you will do it for free, if he insists on payment then do some sort of deal like helping with the harvest... can you drive a tractor? This can be a good way to get in on the action... pigeons, foxes and possibly deer may follow once you get a foot in.

    offering payment all the bloody time just pushes prices up, since when would you pay for pigeon shooting or rabbit shooting? Its ridiculous, won't be long before its as expensive to do vermin control as it is to go stalking. Theres already enough greedy 'professionals' making money from a natural resource that belongs to noone.

    I noticed an article in one of the shooting mags the other day for pigeon shooting - 200 a day . . .
    What a laugh !!!

    The old woodie must be getting rare at those prices

    Totally agree. Don't go paying for vermin control. If you haven't got any of your own permissions get out round some local ground, find where there are plenty rabbits eating crops or pigeons etc and most farmers will let you on. Show your insurance and get a signed permission (download from BASC) and your'e away. Don't just wave a bunch of tenners around to fast track yourself into some shooting or before long well all be bidding against each other for the same thing. All the best hope something comes you way.
