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.
Many things need to be considered during hunting, but what actually happens to the animal after we take our shot?
Dr Joe R. Bumgardner, a surgeon and hunter in the United States, shared his expertise in surgery whilst explaining the physiology of harvesting deer on a recent episode of the Deer University podcast of the Mississippi State University Deer Lab.
Following Dr Bumgardner’s advice, we can increase the success of our harvests by understanding deer physiology and applying this knowledge in the field.
What follows is a summary of the episode of the podcast.
It’s usually quite a challenge to find deer that has been shot and run off. So what can or should we do in these situations? Dr Joe R. Bumgardner, a surgeon and hunter in the United States, shared his expertise in the Deer University podcast of the Mississippi State University Deer Lab.
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.
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...
The first in a series of articles examining the essentials of deer management using measurable and scientifically backed up data. An essential read for anyone involved in game management.
In Part 1 of the series, we meet Attila, an experienced keeper who had recently taken over a large estate in Hungary and discuss the challenges he faces in optimizing his deer population.
In Part 2 of our series, we take a look at the various issues that wildlife managers face and why an online booking and management system can help identify and resolve these.
In our Part 3 conclusion, we meet the detective of our story and take a look at how Attila resolved his issues, as well as his aspirations for the future of his land and wildlife.
