Our Story

Owen Beardsmore was born and raised in the glorious Staffordshire countryside and spent much of his teenage years helping a gamekeeper on the local estate. His was a childhood of dogs, ferrets, catapults and hawks which developed into a love of nature, wildlife and subsequently its management.

Cervus-UK was born out of a hobby business originally called 'Leafield Deer Management Services' back in 1997.

Owen was managing deer on a few farms in the Cotswolds as a recreational stalker. With the increase of awareness for the necessity to manage wild deer, Cervus-UK as a company was formed in 2004 with Owen working full time as a professional deer manager & sporting agent since then.


In the past 7 years, the company has expanded bringing in Daniel Beardsmore, with an expertise in marketing & content creation. Subsequently, our services have expanded into providing authentic, quality content creation for some of the biggest brands within the Hunting & Outdoors industry.

Circa '85, Owen out hunting with his sparrowhawk, Cilla.
