    I hate loosing to ***kers with Money.

    I was not going to say nowt but its been eating away at me all week,

    any you lads suffered the same fate !

    I had a call from a small farm i shoot (400 acres) and the farmer has now asked me to stop shooting on it as of tomorrow the 31st,he has taken on a new guy and one of his mates.

    Seems that he/they are willing to pay 1,000 a year for the pleasure of shooting it, thats Deer (munty,roe, with fox and all ground game) this is the second farm/shoot i have lost in the last 3 years, maybe my bottle of whiskey with a bottle of red and white wine for the lady of the house a couple of times a years not good enough anymore,

    Sorry to here that bobjs. Nobody likes to loose ground. What goes around comes around, it will bite them back. I keep loosing land to the horsey people and one of my best deer fields now has 7 horses in it. Cheers Hootsman

    Bob, when you look at a 1000 and 6 bottles of drink, what would you have accepted, happened to me once as well with a guy I took out. A few years later a chance call back there found that all he did was kill a few deer when it was sunny and not much else, I was welcomed back to do a proper job, these things have a habit of backfiring, however we all have to look at what we give back to the landowner these days as times are hard for them and a thousand quid a year is a family holiday etc, considrably more than he was getting, it will turnaround in time. But t*****s with deep pockets will always be a problem to us. deerwarden.

    Perhaps they have a transparent management plan in place including a roadmap to recovery following best practice?

    Hardly ***kers with money................. I would happily split 1000 with a friend to be able to shoot roe, muntjac, fox and ground game on a local farm to me.
    Unless you own it then nothing is forever!!!!!!!!!
    They may have done you a favour, didnt you write you were thinking of hanging up your guns a couple of months ago?

    I have to agree with you there 1000.00 PA between 2 people = 10 per week, for sole rights i would take it...Nothing comes free these days and neither should anyone expect it to be...IMO
