Alex grew up in a semi-rural area where, from a young age, he took an interest in the countryside before becoming involved in field sports. This was initially through family and then by working with a gamekeeper and local pest controller.
Alex completed a degree in Countryside, Conservation and Recreation Management as he was keen to work in the shooting and countryside industry. During his time at college he tailored his studies around issues related to gamekeeping and shooting.
Alex has a keen interest in all types of shooting sports being especially rough shooting and pest control. He is also keen on gundog training and generally being outdoors and enjoying the countryside with his family.
