Steve started shooting at an early age being taught safety and etiquette from his father and grand father.
He shot his first goose on the solway aged 10 and has had goosefever ever since, working his way north through Scotland shooting at Eden Estuary, Loch Leven, Loch Strathbeg.
He first visited Orkney in 2012 when he fell in love with the islands, it's friendly folk and the relaxed way of life.
So much so, he decided to move here in 2015.
Being resident in Orkney enables Steve to monitor the birds behaviour, all year round, and in all weather conditions / situations.
Steve also carries out crop protection in the summer months.
Steve's black lab 'Jack' is never far from his side and is becoming a great wildfowl asset to the team.
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.
Stewart is also lived and shot in Orkney all of his life. He knows the island grounds very well.
Stewart is a keen fisherman and has a good knowledge on how the tides effect the wildfowl behaviour. If you want to do a little bit of fishing on your trip then he is the man to ask.
