Ea­ger beater

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

I am aware that Lind­say Wad­dell was re­fer­ring to grouse beat­ers in the Dales when he said “there are plenty of young peo­ple who are sim­ply not in­ter­ested in do­ing a day’s beat­ing” (Up­land Keeper, 30 Au­gust). But I have a son who started on the beat­ing line when he was 11 years old, but due to Euro­pean Union age re­stric­tions a lo­cal es­tate could no longer em­ploy him. He is count­ing the days to his 16th birth­day this year. A. Scott, by email
