Announcing the HAMS Job board

Announcing the HAMS Job board

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...

What can we learn from COVID-19’s effects on wildlife and hunting?

What can we learn from COVID-19’s effects on wildlife and hunting?

After being locked up inside for weeks now, many may be wondering what the origin is of the situation we’re in, as this virus outbreak likely arose from a wildlife management problem.

Scientists, by and large, believe the virus originated in bats before being transmitted to humans. These infected bats were believed to have been sold at a wet market in Wuhan, China. However, no one currently knows for certain so all we can do is speculate. 

Since then, our lives have been completely changed and the world won’t be the same anymore. 

As COVID-19 is affecting people and economies worldwide, you may wonder what kind of impact this has on hunting and wildlife. 

Is there something we can do about this? 

And more importantly, what can we learn from this situation?

The HAMS Guide to Hunting Related Things To Do During the Lockdown

The HAMS Guide to Hunting Related Things To Do During the Lockdown

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…

Want better antlers, more meat and higher quality populations?

Want better antlers, more meat and higher quality populations?

Hunting has been carried out for centuries and continues to play a vital part in the management of wildlife. Passed on through generations upon generations of families, it is still an important tradition.

However, if we want to continue, we need to proactively participate in responsible and accountable management based on numbers and facts. Because whether we like it or not, game management is about the numbers, year-by-year, season-by-season.

So, what numbers should we be collecting?

And what can we do with them?

In this article here at HAMS we are going to take a look at what monitoring and data collection means for wildlife management and what we can do with these numbers.

And lastly, why it’s so darn important.

What happens if we stop managing wildlife, and ban hunting?

What happens if we stop managing wildlife, and ban hunting?

Hunting has always been a way of life, it has dominated the course of human evolution for millions of years and is still a way of life for many millions of people closely connected to nature and the animal world.

It is also common knowledge that our ancestors were hunter-gatherers who used tools to obtain food, however, what is less commonly known is that the laws to manage animal populations were only established much, much later when modern humans noticed that certain species had started to decline, and in some cases, disappear.

So, in light of this knowledge, what would be the consequences if we stopped hunting?

What would happen to the wildlife populations and the land they live on if, as many that are opposed to hunting, we stopped intervening?
