Portraits of Beaters and Pickers at a Surrey pheasant shoot, Surrey UK.
Pickers often work in tandem with gun dogs or retrieving dogs to aid in the efficient recovery of shot game. They may direct or assist the dogs in locating and retrieving birds, enhancing the overall efficiency of the process.
Beaters aim to create a controlled movement of game birds, ensuring they fly in a predictable direction for the guns to take safe and ethical shots. They use flags, sticks, or other noise-making devices to guide and influence the flight path of the birds
