I currently work on a farm, i have done for 5 years now, where a syndicate pays the farmer X ammount per year to run a game shoot, also added onto this ammount is the work carried out by us for there game cover ect ect.
This season i did all their ground prep from ploughing to fertilizing but not the actual drilling (about 5 acres of land), mainly because the farmer was busy and they were worrying about it not being done on time.
In april i got my FAC and the farmer told me i could shoot as often as i liked aslong as i asked him, which was fine but i had a few run-ins with the syndicate people not liking it and so now i have to ask both of them to go out shooting to keep the peace and make sure the saftey aspect is there too which is fine ill massarge ego's to get some shooting in and i certanly dont want any injuries.
The bit that i find very unusual is that neither me not the land owner have been invited on 1 shoot this season. Do we have a rude bunch of or are syndicates often like this??
Unfortunaly i cant get the farmer to get rid of them for some reason, porably the money, going to try and get a contract drawn up to point out they dont own the place.
