HAMS talks to Bernard Burke, Business Area Manager for Coillte – the Irish state-owned commercial forestry business – about the introduction of its online digitised management system for the organisation’s forestry activities.
This presentation showcases how the use of HAMS.online can have major benefits for any club even well managed hunt clubs.
The changes in less organised estates or syndicates is even more significant due to the practices, processes and workflows HAMS.online is built around and provides.
This case study showcases how HAMS.online is being utilised by Coillte to streamline processes, reduce admin, improve health and safety, and fulfil land and wildlife potential.
You probably already know him, the little brown bird with the long beak that likes to “dance” as it walks. The Eurasian woodcock is a small, wading bird that can be found and hunted in many European countries.
It is a migratory bird that flies not so much from North to South, but rather from East to West, looking for warmer wintering grounds. During this migration, some birds that reside in Hungary are caught and ringed before they continue their way to the UK and France.
Let’s look at this process in more detail.
Three young, early-career wildlife professionals from different countries; David Chandrasekhar (Australia), Paige Hellbaum (U.S.), and Thabang Teffo (South Africa) held a panel discussion about communicating wildlife conservation to the general public during the 35th Congress of the International Union of Game Biologists in Budapest, Hungary.
There is this common argument that I often hear that if left to its own devices wildlife would thrive but one thing that the lockdown has actually demonstrably proven is that this is not the case at all.
And why so many estates and syndicates are turning to online booking systems to improve profitability
Wildlife crime is a broad term and from many (far too many) conversations over the years it’s clear there’s a lot of healthy and lively debate surrounding the subject.
So, for the moment, let’s put the ethical and moral arguments to one side and let’s start by stating the legal parameters by which we define the term.
Covid-19 has hit our community hard and to a lesser or greater degree we have all been affected. Thousands within our community have already lost their jobs around the world with a lot more facing redundancy if the coming season is negatively impacted. Hunting tourism has all but disappeared and a lot of the traditional revenue streams of estates are at an all time low.
As you know, here at HAMS we are focussing on how to support our community, how to reduce costs whilst making conservation and game management easier and better. This is why we have created a free advertising platform for estates, landowners and associates to advertise their vacancies. Everyone who is involved in fieldsports, hunting and wildlife management.
This coupled with the existing features of HAMS which have proven to reduce the cost of administration, and encourage contactless management of guests and staff.
Our job board provides a platform for both:
- estates, syndicates, clubs and lands with job vacancies to fill
- People looking for a job.
If we can help at least 1 member of our community then it was worth it.

Let’s help each other, and make our community stronger than ever.
Here’s how to use the HAMS job board...
Not so long ago we were asked by a syndicate to investigate their wildlife management strategy because a decline in their roe deer trophy sizes had been identified.
And, of course, being HAMS, we were curious to see how the management efforts had affected the trophy sizes and the profitability of the land. So we dove deep into 10 years’ worth of data , because we were keen to see...
