Rob has been a goose guide in Orkney for nearly a decade now and has thus developed an in depth knowledge of the area and how the wildfowl behave in different conditions and situations. Other wildfowling experience includes numerous trips to Montrose Basin, Solway, St. Andrews, Aberdeen, Loch Leven, Norfolk, Clevdon and he was a member at Wentlog Wilfowlers.
In addition to this he has guided and shot in Canada, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, and the US. He also has years of experience decoying pigeons and crows, driven and walked up pheasant, woodcock, snipe and partridge and lamping rabbits and foxes. He is also an ex-international clay shot.
Rob's dogs include Nutmeg and Snipe. Nutmeg aged 12 is now an experienced wildfowling dog and will be retiring shortly. Snipe (dog) aged 18 months is a new edition and the 2012-13 season will be his first proper experience. He has great breeding and we are expecting a lot from him in the coming years.
Marcus is now an experienced member of the Orkney shooting holidays team. It is great to have on board. He is a local who has already a good knowledge of the shooting grounds and has great relationships with a lot of our farmers. He has both firearms and shotgun licences. He has two working dogs. His lab (Jed) is a keen worker and is great in water.
Marcus is also a knowledgable fisherman so if any of you guys that plan on partaking in some fishing feel free to get some advice off him.
