Preventing Poaching In The Uk

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am a Design student at Loughborough University and I am designing a product that will be used to give landowners and Gamekeepers in the UK more security against poachers. I just have a couple of questions that I would like to ask that will help me significantly with the research. It would be great to get some feedback from you! Thanks

 

-How does poaching occur on your land?

-What do you find to be the best defense against Poachers?

Wild??? Pheasants??? Deer parks? Etc.

 

Big difference between poaching some bunnys etc and a lot of other stuff, some poaching does basically involve robbing someones stock, taking their assets etc.

 

Not saying don't do it, that's your call. But you've got to accept it is what it is, and not try to make out the keeper as an arsehole if he catches you and batters you!

 

You can hardly blame them.

didn't mention deer parks once did I and yes pheasants are wild once released into the wild and fair game to anyone who wants to take one for the pot don't like it don't release pheasants into the wild to put it simple plus good luck to any keeper who tries battering me as he wont get far I tell you that

Deer parks are like sheep fields, that not poaching to me, same as birds in pens, but once allowed to live off there wits and roam land, then who ever catches them own em imo

how do they own the land,because they bought it from someone who bought it from someone etc,etc,etc who originally either drove off any inhabitants who hunted it and worked it or claimed it as theirs and all the creatures there in.Basically it was stolen away from the common man who then stopped being self sufficient and became a serf at the owners bidding.often not being allowed to hunt.

Any thoughts anyone

      Hi!
      I am looking to collect some game feathers from local shoots (Oxfordshire) for crafting purposes.
      I know eBay and other sites sell them but not in the quantity I need.
      Can anyone point me in the right direction?
      I am willing to go and pick them up.
      Many Thanks!

      I found. Two dead poults near two different drinkers.  There was a little bit of blood on a feeder near on of them. Both show no signs of be predated upon  no sign of disease. No discharge nothing the waters where cleaned two days ago but these are the first dead birds I have found in the pen. Usually I'd take them to the vet to get checked but the boss doesn't wanna do that  so are there any other signs that could point to a disease ect ??

      Hello



      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.
