It is in grouse moor territory on that side of the Lammermuir Hills.

Unfortunately there always seems to be someone in the shooting community that does everyone else a huge disservice by their behaviour.

The estate is in the Lammermuirs and there is grouse shooting on the hill, also pheasant shoot on the lower ground around the River Whiteadder.

Can't understand how a " Gamekeeper" could do so much damage to the shooting community, c.p. will be in his element.

I must admit my first reaction to reading this post was that the story was apocryphal, likely to have been invented by the anti brigade. That is not the case with the man’s guilty plea. He was a bad egg who has been convicted of other crimes.

His actions are not the norm in shooting today.......he is a dinosaur living in the past.............thankfully for our sport, he is now extinct, like the other dinosaurs!

Hmm, that sounds like the Whitchester estate that used to belong to the Landale family.
My Mum grew up there as my Grandfather was the head forester on the estate.
I knew the old gamekeeper back in the day - Jimmy Menzies (Minges to us) - he used to turn a blind eye to us young 'uns fishing in the Laird's trout pond :-)
Sad to see something like this going on...

No its next door.  I also remember Jimmy Menzies, Jimmy Dodds and Andrew Hall who were the gamekeeping team in old Mr Landales time..  I still use the Army and Navy hammer gun I bought from Andrew Hall circa 1960.

Deserves everything he gets and his employers too.

Agree, I feel that in 10-20yrs time shooting will be history..

It will be if employers continue to employ total idiots like this one.

he may have no choice as his lord and master says, get rid of or we will find someone else,  job and dwelling gone after all the years of service , homeless and no job, 

may or not be the case  either way not good
