Ok chaps this may be a how long's a piece of string question but here goes!
What advice could you give someone who has never been a gamekeeper and is likely to be involved in getting a new shoot off the ground with the landowners son?!
It's very early days but the son of the farmer we shoot for is looking to start a syndicate shoot on about 1000 acres of land for the 2015/2016 season and I have said I'd love to help run it, or be involved seeing as we do the pest control and stalking there anyway. I want to try and keep it in house for obvious reasons!!
I've read a few books, which I'll need to do again but I know there is no substitute for actual experience on the ground.
Does anyone use the BASC shoot planner thingy and if so is it any good?
