A Big Day
I thought I'd use this opportunity to post some photos. I had an ol' regular with me today (I use the term advisedly- oh hi, Ken, how ya doin'?) and we had a good day. We ended up with 7 hinds/calves in the bag and finished the day boating the last 2 across the loch as night fell. Very atmospheric.
I've been a gamekeeper on this estate for 20 years. I love this place and I love doing what I do.
A while back, my family and I were given the chance to spend 3 months on a Kalahari Game reserve as part of a 'cultural exchange'. It was a fantastic experience and I sent home blogs to share it with family and friends. Somehow they persuaded me to continue blogging on our return. And here I am !
I reckon I've got the best job in the world and I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my world.
I ask only one thing:- love it or hate it, please leave a comment.
PS It seems if you DO want to leave a comment, you'll have to do it under the 'anonymous' tag. Technology, dontcha love it...
