how do you know how much to tender in any area,im not interested this year but was just wondering how much a let with say 10 deer or so would cost

Not into shooting deer. Am in the W1 District and the species mentioned is Fallow. Now all the deer around here are Sika so how does that work out?

be very wary of the cull figures they have a cull figure on a wood in west cork and i know for a fact all that is on it is a herd of about 70 or so goats. so some of the woods have crazy sized cull figures on them

this is true, a forest down my way came up on last years tender, and there is no deer on it, or in the surrounding areas

Back in the good times lettings with 20deer to be shot on them were making 20k.I know of a letting last year with 10 deer to be shot out of it made 6500.I reckon they will be a bit cheaper this time around.Put in a bid and see how you get on.Nothing ventured,nothing gained.But make sure you walk the the wood and do your research before you put any bid in.

As far as I can see it's all pot luck.

You decide what the Lett is worth and put in a bid. And Coillte don't always give it to the highest bidder.

So it's up to you to find out how many deer are on the Lett and if it's even worth any bid. Could be worth a phone call to the Letts local forest manager to get some info.

They dont always give it to the highest bidder only 99.9percent of the time.

Nothing else counts except the money you bid and that you have done the HCAP.
Permissions in the area are worth nothing.
Having the let for the last 30 years is worth nothing.

If you are outbid you are a loser. End of the story.

Its not 1k a carcass.Thats only a guide.They dont care if you shoot 20 or 50 as long as you pay the money.I agree with you no deer are worth that.
