Can anyone recommend a Gamekeeping book

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone could anyone recommend a good game keeping book that covers topics such as getting started, building pens , day to day jobs, feeding routines etc? Been beating on a few shoots now & would like to learn more about the keeping and day to day running side of a shoot . Cheers

The Game Conservancy booklets used to be helpful (but may be dated} and seem to be something of collectors prices judging by the quick search I just done. It might be worth looking for one of the game rearing ones or even better a modern copy. Best of luck finding a good book and keep us posted 👍

Will do! I've been recommended the complete book of game conservation it's been refered as the bible of game keeping haha . Another recommendation is a book called your shoot!

Try " Advice from a Gamekeeper" by John Cowan. No technical stuff about crops etc but good down to earth advice for a beginner in the vocation. Look for it used on amazon or abe. 😉

Advice from a game keeper, your shoot and the gamekeeper.

all decent books but don go into huge detail, there not instruction manuals, more like a reference or guide.
