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


Very true http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...

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.

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:

good luck with your coarse mate hope you enjoy but ive found most keepers jobs
go to people they know or word of mouth as the keepers i know [not all] never went
to college just got the job passed on by working on the estate around the keeper
ive just found out a lad from our villagewho wasa paint/decerator did a bit of pidgeon
shooting as got a job as a beat keeper nr scarbourgh with car and house and knows
nothing but they are going to train him up
surly you going on a 2yr cause cannot thing this correct
its who you know in this world mate not what you know
good luck mate :thumbs: :thumbs:
