why not just go and help out a keeper that rears his own?

So he will have first hand experience in rearing them in his own without anyone elses help.

tbh I don't think rearing a dozen chicks in your garden will give you much experience :thumbs: jmho.

get carried before you crawl

 

Get shat out your mothers c**t before you get carried... whats your point?

 

I saw fair play to the young lad for being pro-active about learning about pheasant rearing.

It sounds to me as if you're jealous to a certain extent Bluemink. Evidently, he will gain experience because he's rearing the birds. To some extent I agree with your statement because he won't gain as much experience as he would if he was on a large game farm or shoot that rears their own birds. It doesn't take a lot on 'The Hunting Life' for people to start having a 'dig' at others, does it? It sounds to me as if some do not have anything better to do with their time than try to act as if they're perfect.

why would I be jealous mate? I have reared 100's of ornamental and ringneck pheasant. And now I help out at a large commercial game shoot, who rear all there own stock bar a few thousand, which are bought as day olds. I am the same age as this fella and I was just suggesting that he try and get some experience that would apply to a career in keepering, not trying to have a dig :thumbs:
