Its going on - for the likes of me for whom its a question of picking up rifle and stick and going its not an issue. For estates where 4-5 people might be involved guidance has been issued and is being followed so to that extent all is well.

The problem is that the guidance changes frequently - sometimes weekly - and its really difficult to keep up. In many urban areas infection rates have shot up in the last week or two but up here we are largely isolated from that - the restrictions still apply though! Makes life a pain - but at least we still have a life....

Just hope things are nearer "normal" next year - we have a lodge with ten stags booked in Sutherland at the last week of the stags ....fingers crossed.

Hi Charlie64

I was up there at the beginning of September for a few days on the stags. At that time the only restrictions in place were wearing of face masks in shops and while walking around the hotel.

A fellow AR member was meant to join me on this hunt but he decided to postpone and do the hunt with me next year instead. In my opinion he was very right to do so. It's just not worth taking this risk this year.

For obvious reasons there have been a lot less international hunters going to Scotland this year but a lot more hunters from the UK are heading to the highlands.

If you need any inforamtion/prices for next year let me know and I will be happ to help.

With kind regards

Mike

As Mike says things are changing regularly. Challenges are

1) needing to quarantine for two weeks when traveling from certain countries. Mind you rules are unclear and not enforced.

2) you can stay in a hotel, but families should not mix

3) but a mixed family group cannot share a rented lodge or cottage.

Yes you can still stalk, but much of the fun of a weeks stalking is being with good friends and making new ones - and that is kind of difficult with all the social distancing regulations.

My daughter owns a home in Paisley (near Glasgow) and travels back and forth from the US West Coast. She told me that when arriving from the US there is an ENFORCED 14 day quarantine.

It is nuts if you ask me.

A person travels to Scotland.

They are required to quarantine for 14 days.

They live with the rest of the family in the house.

The rest of the family are free to come and go.

We call it the GLAGOW QUARANTINE! rotflmo

Saeed

There is little in this Covid situation that makes much sense in terms of policy, or lack thereof.

And most of the U.K. is under more restrictions from Monday gone.
Local lockdowns and the misery continues.
The U.K. government seem pretty crap at doing anything sensible about it apart from bankrupting our country over it.

Sensible and any of the UK governments are words that cannot be used in the same sentence. Far too little far too late and not listening to good advice. Net result, far more people die and the economy And peoples lives for more completely screwed than necessary.

But at least we have left Europe — so no ways that will add any further misery.
