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 few years, the company has expanded its services into providing authentic, quality content creation for forward thinking businesses within the Hunting & Outdoors sector.
Circa '85, Owen out hunting with his sparrowhawk, Cilla.
