Preventing Poaching In The Uk

Recommended Posts

Don't know his background tbh jok, might be a game keepers son, might be a beater i am not sure. The app just pinpoints your location so you then make a report to the police. Its not going to stop anything but like i say he has taken a proactive approach. I don't think anyone has the answer really. But i do like the fact that there are people out there willing to try.

Realistically the only thing that stops poachers is being there, all times of day and night and disrupting them.


Night vision, thermal and lamps all play the part and if you make it so that the lads can't have a peaceful night then they will move on and annoy someone else!


There wont be a product that will really help, trail cams so but they aren't much of a deterrent.


Get out there and have a jolly old time chasing them over the fields!

Its clear that many are unlikely to own any land because if they did, then I suggest they would view poaching in a different light.

Advocating theft during trespass is a bit daft really, especially with a firearm.

Walk where you will without damage and quietly but whats on his land is his, not yours.

One for the pot is fine but more is criminal and would lose you your right to a gun - and rightly so.

Thing is this. This guy has used us. He has manipulated the conversation to meet his needs. I think this thread should be ended.

If I wished to protect game, I would hope for a drone with IR camera and a pre-programmed (but variable) route around my land.

A method of warning, as with car thefts, calls to mobiles would be useful so the poachers could be caught in the act.

Failing that - I would like to catch them myself.

maybe they should start poaching hunting schools to help combat the poaching rules ,that would be more like it so the young divis net hunters, and keen guys dont get gobbled up,


you spend to much money and on daft web cams , for what to stop someone catching game thats wild ,,years ago it was harder to poach as the good old gamekeeper was a loyal serf to the maister , now there not so loyal ,


do the deed and never say when and were easy way realy, get a full balaclava no camera can pierce that and a set of spare plates saw it in smokie and the bandit lol

I find this thread literally incredible. Advocation of theft and general lawlessness, threats to individuals by trade if not name, cowardly (numbers superiority) attacks recommended on individuals.

Maybe its just a lot of bravado, I would hope so, since otherwise it is actionable. I suggest any moderators might want to issue a few warnings as clearly some of this thread is abusive and illegal.

Land is owned, wildlife is not, if, to get to wildlife you have to enter property owned by another its illegla and these rantings are as bad as the man traps that used to be employed to catch poachers. Grow up.

      My name is Paul, i am 20 years old and i am from Grimsby in Lincolnshire.

      I have recently had an interview for a Gamekeeping Apprenticeship at Bishop Burton college in Yorkshire and I have been offered a place so long as i can find employment but being in the north east Lincolnshire area Gamekeepers seem to be few and far between, i have contacted the major local estate (brocklesby estate which is owned by the Earl of Yarborough) and some smaller estates ran by farmers and the only replies i seem to be getting are "we aren't looking to employ anyone else" which is fair enough but also rather disappointing but hey, what can you do.

      I am posting here to see if there are any people out there that may know someone that could take me on or actually take me on themselves in or around the Grimsby area?(30 mile radius)

      I have experience in:

      - organised shoots as I was a beater at my local shoot (no gamekeeper, it is ran by volunteers)

      - pest control as I often shoot pigeons and rabbits for the local farmer.

      - Handling rifles and shotguns

      I can drive so transport is no problem. I am looking to work within a 25-30 mile radius of Grimsby.

      The employer has a possibility of gaining a £1500 grant if they take me on which is provided by the college (the government have the final say however as it goes through them + Terms and conditions apply)

      I am willing to do trial runs

      I can do voluntary work to gain experience.

      If there is anyone out there that will be able to help me it would be more than appreciated.

      If anyone has any offers or information then please contact me via my email - Pldiplock@gmail.com

      This is one of the latest films i did for angus moorland group. We tried to show in the film the education behind gamekeeping and the young people that want to become gamekeepers and what drives them. Let me know what you think. Very excited to be making more of these throughout the year.

      Dear one & all,

      I am currently looking for some work experience within conservation or gamekeeping within Northampton area ideally near Boughton because I currently do not drive.
      I am currently studying at Moulton College and doing a course in Countryside Management, and am going onto a HE course in September, and would like to increase my practical knowledge before I start.

      So if anyone could help me out I would be very thankful.
