Pigeon and Pest Control - Yorkshire


I'm a responsible 28 year old based near Tadcaster, North Yorkshire and would be open to assist any local (Yorkshire based) farmers/ land owners with any pest control issues in the surrounding areas, free of charge.

I work full time in Executive Recruitment at Bowcliffe Hall near Bramham Park and am happy to offer some help or advice in the way of recruiting people to your business, advertising jobs etc. in return for permission to shoot on your land. Alternatively I can also offer some help on small jobs needed doing on site also in return for some shooting. (Fencing, maintenance etc.)

I am available all weekends or week nights with some notice.

In my spare time I am either shooting clays at a local club, playing live music or out walking the Dales with my two dogs.

I am fully licensed and insured through BASC and have all relevant pigeon decoying equipment. I have both a 12 gauge over and under shotgun and air rifles dependent on the requirements of the land.

I am responsible and will give great care and respect to the Land I am on and communicate openly and honestly with the Land Owner to ensure a loyal trusting relationship is in place. I am respectful and have a good morale compass.

If you have anything available or know someone who may be worth speaking with do let me know, or contact me via phone/ text on 07748325567
