The 2018 SGA Young Scottish Gamekeeper of the Year nomination period closes next Friday (15th June).

SGA Chairman Alex Hogg and the Committee encourages all college lecturers, Head Gamekeepers, and Estate managers to put forward an inspiring youngster who is either in education and on placement or in the early stages of a career in gamekeeping, gillie-ing or deer stalking or as a wildlife manager or ranger.
The prize is one of the most coveted in the game sector and the label of an 'SGA Young Gamekeeper of the Year' award winner is an excellent addition to the CV of any early years professional.
The annual prize recognises individuals who, by their management and attitude, are a credit to the profession. Adherence to the law and best practice and the ability to work hard and learn are vital assets for candidates as well as being able advocates of the benefit of responsible game management to many species, on hill or riverbank.
Please send final entries to with the subject line of 'SGA Young Gamekeeper of the Year'.
The financial prize, plus award, will be presented in the SGA tent at GWCT Scottish Game Fair on Friday 29th June by SGA Chairman Alex Hogg and special guests from NFU Scotland.
