NEEDED KEEPER

Recommended Posts

Guest little_lloyd
No good posting on a forum, get beating at a shoot and get to know a few keepers.......

 

Very true :thumbs:

 

And if you don't know any shoots locally, or the keepers have enough beaters??? What then LL??

 

Give the lad a chance - he is only looking for an opportunity to live the life that so many never find, but one that I am so very glad I did.

 

Keep trying borderboys :thumbs:

 

OTC

 

Well how i found out about a little shoot was a friend of my Grandad who got chatting to me one night in the village pup and it went from there.

 

Its not hard finding out about shoots in the area just get chatting to people around your area! Plus if the keeper has enough beaters then offer to help him with something else. I wish this kid find the live he wants to live and hope this forum helps him out to!

Theres loads of shoots about, cant be that hard finding one?

If they got enough beaters then I would offer to go for free (thats if they pay, obviously) If they got enough numbers then find a different shoot...

 

Or if like me, get caught ferreting :haha: Luckily the keepers a nice bloke and didnt mind too much, he just said that if we beat for them then we can have permission..... There all nice guys, but I do get the piss taken out of me for getting caught! :D

 

Mind you most the shoots round my way are quite informal, Beaters and Guns sit and eat at same table etc Your not treated like a peasent lol.....

 

Come November I will be asking the keeper for some free work experiance to do on my College course :thumbs:

 

H&J :cheers:
