After chasing elusive deer stalking opportunities for the past year, me & a mate called in on someone we know over the border in Scotland this afternoon with the idea of booking a couple of deer stalking session with him.
Bear in mind that the UK's mostly pretty crowded & a good deal is $130-200 a day for deer stalking, plus a carcase fee.
What we came away with was an agreement where we get to shoot over 3 separate areas of forestry totalling more than 4,000 acres which are solid with roe & sitka, with some red's thrown in too. Minimum take's 10 deer a year, with the opportunity for many more as the population is WAY too high & needs managed more effectively.
All for less than $1,300 a year & no more than 90 minutes from home.
I'm well happy.
here's the largest block:

Mate, you scored well there. That's a lot of money, but when you consider everything it's actually very cheap...maximum of $130 a beastie.

I was talking to someone today about a nearby hunting lease. Apparently the going rate is between $10 and $13 per acre.

The rates in North TX depend on how close you are to the metroplex. Pkslinger, that rate is 1/2 to a 1/4 or more what we pay.

I should also say that there is very little public land to hunt in TX so that drives prices. You basically have to have a private lease to hunt.

Flippin' 'eck! Here was me wondering if what I'm paying was excessive.

I omitted that I don't have exclusive access & there are 4 more share this but it looks like they don't use it much, if at all (UK firearms laws can bring this kind of thing about).

Turns out the second area is directly south of the one in the photo, so it's pretty much a 6 mile by 1.3 mile block.
Going to head up there on Sunday or Monday for a scouting session, with the intent of getting in a couple of days hunting before Christmas.
