Am just recovering from my day looking after the birds on a shoot i pick up on.
The keeper needed the afternoon/eve off and asked if i would do his rounds for him .........now i have an idea of how hard his/your job is.
The physical side is quite tough but just getting round and getting it all done was a challenge and then to top it off i then carried on through the night shooting foxes with the aid of NV, 1st time i've been out all night ( think the wife liked the fact i stayed out all night and did'nt wake her at some crazy hour of the morning.
I retire in a couple of years time and am thinking it would be nice to help a keeper out part-time, does this go on alot? would i need qualifications?
