What qualifications will I need for a deer stalking job?

What sort of qualifications will I need to get a job ? I can?t find any information on the subject. Maybe I am looking in the wrong places?

Several agricultural colleges offer courses in countryside management with sections devoted to the training of future gamekeepers and deer managers.

I am reluctant to mention any particular one for fear of offending all the others, but a trawl on the internet should find one reasonably close to your home, or one whose presentation strikes a chord with you.

You could also try the website of the National Gamekeepers? Organisation and ask if anyone is looking for a likely lad as a trainee.

Looking after deer can be a wonderful, fascinating and rewarding job among some of the country?s most beautiful animals, so I wish you the very best of luck in your search.
