Have you ever dreamed of stalking in the majestic highlands of Scotland? Ever wanted to go angling in Lock Drunkie or grouse shooting in the Cairngorms? Chloe Forbes is here to introduce us to Country Sport Scotland and the superb services they provide.
If you’re anything like us you’ve left your Christmas shopping to the last minute. If so here are a few gift ideas for anyone that enjoys the outdoors lifestyle, shooting, hunting, stalking, or angling. There are even some specific recommendations from the community.
The legend of how Hubertus converted and became the patron Saint of hunters and importantly why he is symbolic of our respect for nature as a community.
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.
If you want to take your part in helping, please share this article wherever you can by clicking on this link: (we should solve to share the article somehow immediately on Facebook.)
Let’s help each other, and make our community stronger than ever.
Here’s how to use the HAMS job board...
These are difficult times for sure, and self isolation isn’t easy. As a community we’re more inclined to be outdoors than indoors - that’s for sure (stir crazy comes to mind:) ). So here’s our little handy HAMS guide to things you can be doing that are at least hunting related. If it stops another self-inflicted bowl haircut or someone pouring vegetable oil on their kitchen floor (really!) we’ll have done our job…
As part of our ongoing series of articles, voices from the community, Katie Burrows (@katie_burrows16) shares her experiences and thoughts as a vegan that understands why hunting plays an essential role in wildlife conservation.
Okay, so I’m going to start this guest post with a few questions and I’d love you to answer them - honestly - because for a lot of us we often forget the reasons behind what we do. Why do you love field sports? ...
As the brains, looks and charm behind the popular Instagram page @hamsofficial (we’re literally none of those things) we often get asked about our thoughts on how to run a successful hunting and shooting focused account without attracting unduly unpleasant attention and representing our way of life in a good light.
So here I’ve made a list of suggestions to help get your page off to a good start.
