A bit of begging but not for me

I feel a bit cheeky asking this as you lot probably get ask all the time but here goes.
A friend of mine who loves his deer stalking has asked me if I know of any ground he can go on. All the places I have are either deer free or well sown up with syndicates or what not.
Now before you fob this off I should give you a brief history of my friend. He was a palliative care nurse ( actually he's was the area manager ) and only really seen people when they were about to die, and then have to deal with the grieving family, not a job I would like at all. He got out of it as it was getting him down, understandably. So he went in to a walk in centre, which he was enjoying as he seen a wide variety of patients and their aliment. Then covid hit and he got put in the thick of it, in something that got named a dirty hub. So as you can imagine he's been working flat out and luckily somehow has avoided catching it. So that's his story, I could probably lay ot on thicker but I don't think it's needed. He doesn't expect it for nothing and he's certainly not wanting to wipe out the deer population. He's got an fac with an open ticket and fully insured.
So if anyone's got a deer population they want thinning out a bit or know someone who does please let me know, I think he deserves a break.
