Along with employed professional keepers, the event welcomed a number of gamekeeping students, inviting them to take part in talks and discussions on the problems modern gamekeepers face now. Several colleges were represented, including North Highland College, Elmwood Campus and Borders College, from which student clay shooting winner Barry Morton hailed. Colin Shedden, director of BASC Scotland, spoke of the importance of investing in the next generation of gamekeepers. He said: “These students are the future of gamekeeping in Scotland. It was good to see them mixing with experienced professionals. We are working against a rapidly changing backdrop of regulation and reform to which the profession is adapting. Gamekeepers should be rightly proud of the work they do and the contribution it makes to the Scottish countryside and BASC Scotland is pleased to be helping to train and encourage the next generation of dedicated gamekeepers.”

Representatives from each of the colleges expressed their gratitude to BASC for its continual support. For a full exposé of the event, don’t miss Modern Gamekeeping May.
