    Do you pay 9500, or do they pay you for carrying out the cull? Sorry to,sound naive !

    You pay then try to recover your costs by selling venison assuming there are 100 (+/130%) deer there.

    most leases I have seen are costed at roughly 100 a deer....

    This, only you won't get anywhere near 100 when you weigh in a roe doe to a game dealer.

    +1,
    The estimated total value of contract 2 is 9500, 100 deer +30%, depending on how the contract goes and how much per beast you are paid, so in theory you could get 30% above the 9500 per contract.

    seem some people dont know the difference between a contract and a lease,
    your wrong your NOT paying to shoot the deer your being PAID to shoot them,you have to put in a tender for the contract,in simple terms you tender a price which you are prepared to work for IE how much you need to be paid per beast shot,it can be what evre you think anything form 50 to 150.
    you still have to tick all the boxes first to get the contract and then its not easy to forfill it,contracting is a full time job

    Spot on!

    Looks good on the face of it but could be the toughest 9500 you ever earned.
    Could take all the joy out of stalking and would probably involve having to lamp.

    hi it will be very hard work in there lots of large mature blocks and no chance of lamping no night licenses issued there

    I have previously carried out contract work on the Wark beat a few years ago.
    It can be quite an unforgiving bleak place and is challenging stalking, the problem with Roe only contracts is that if the weather does not play ball you can be struggling to locate the deer.
    Round trip to the larder was over 50 miles and accomodation is limited.
    Unless you can commit full time hours and are willing to put in the hard yards on foot I would suggest that this is not the contract for you.
    For info, I am not tendering for this.

    Regards

    BP
