Become a Beater

Holborough Pheasant Shooting - Beaters

“Are you fit enough?”…

…are the opening words usually spoken by the gamekeeper to very welcome newbies, The majority of our pheasant covers produce very high birds. The downside as a beater is that it means a great deal of uphill walking; ideal if you are looking to keep in shape without going to the gym!

Keen, reliable, experienced or novice beaters are required for this current season, with or without dogs. We meet in the Beater’s room on shoot mornings for hot drinks and a bacon roll. Transport is provided throughout the day seated in our purpose built beaters’ 4 x 4 truck. Hot drinks and hot snacks are provided at end of each shoot day.

Due to the current Coronavirus Crisis and the social distancing measures that this entails, we are not adding any further people to our regular team for the 2020/21 season.

We apologize for this and hope to accept new applicants next year.
