9781906122119: Advice from a Gamekeeper

"John Cowan is headkeeper on a large Scottish estate, and has worked as a gamekeeper all his life. In this new book, he passes on everything he knows about the profession he loves. The book is crammed with fascinating practical advice - but it is also a very entertaining read for anyone interested in the day-to-day challenges and joys of running a busy sporting estate. It can be read for its countless tips and gamekeeping wisdom, or simply for pleasure, for the unique insight into the hard-working but rewarding life of the modern gamekeeper. With informative drawings of traps and snares by Roger Penwill and classic wildlife illustrations from C.F. Tunnicliffe. "

About the Author:

"John Cowan was born in the Scottish Borders and spent his early years exploring the surrounding countryside and learning about its wildlife, trying to glean as much knowledge as possible from the old countrymen he knew. His first job was under the watchful eye of the famous keeper, Ronnie Rose, at Eskdalemuir, where he learnt about deer stalking, grouse, blackcock, duck and pheasant shooting. He then took employment at the Duke of Roxburgh's estate near Kelso, learning about grouse and wild partridge management under Jimmy Nairn. For the last 30 years, John has been headkeeper on a 6000-acre estate in Galloway where he manages high quality pheasant and partridge shooting and roe deer stalking. His wife Jan helps him with many of the keepering tasks on a daily basis. They have two children and two grandchildren. "
