Thread: Price for stalking rights.

  1. #1

    Price for stalking rights.

    hi there, i am a member of a small local shoot that covers roughly 100 acres of hillside and the owner of the land has just taken an offer from a 3rd party for the phesant shooting rights and for them to set up a shoot for themselves and kick us local lot out. i am currently considering making the land owner an offer for the stalking rights and lamping pest control rights. it is fairly sparsley populated with roe, both bucks and does. what is the going rate atm? is it done per acre, or population? does anybody have any suggestions? should i have the land cleared by the police first or after buying it? any replies would be of huge help. thankyou x

    Pest control, as in anything from rats up thru rabbit, & on to fox usually come free where I come from, if you do it properly , you can end up being very highly valued, & passed on from landowner to landowner by word of mouth, my bud & I & others who we train up, are highly valued & are always busy over many, many properties, we can have a count of around 15 fox in a week, rabbits that are busting our freezers, & rats, well have you ever had a 10/22 really hot? 8)

    IRO 1/ac for open unproductive land. Double that if you throw in the odd copse, hedgerow, gamestrip. How about a haunch of venison and a good bottle of whisky at Xmas?

    If you're not sure what is on the ground, try offering an amount per animal shot, for the first season or two.
    Down here it was 100 per roe buck some time back. Don't know about prices for other categories.
