Thread: How much for stalker & gillie tips?

    How much for stalker & gillie tips?

    I have just had a couple of fantastic days hind stalking in Scotland and I was very happy to leave a tip after each day for the stalker and the gillie. What I would like to know is whether it was about right or not. I gave the stalker 40 and the gillie 20 after each day. I had a different stalker for each day but they were both excellent. What do most people do? (assuming that like me they have had a great time and have been looked after extremely well). Any guidance for the future would be much appreciated...

    80-100 depends how far they went for you to make your day

    Stalker 60+ Gillie 20+ + would depend on the stalk. + would depend on the drag and assistance given.

    Your 20% was generous - they should have been pleased.

    Thats what I thought, but sure others will have different opinions ( and I'm guessing lots of those will take guests out and be hoping for generous tips!, lol).

    WOW! SISI, we agree on something...everyone, mark your diaries.

    however, yes, day on hinds should be around 50-100 with no cull fees, IMHO. Guide tips on top depending on what is deserved, and of course, what you can afford.
