For the serious and accomplished hunter, hunts often follow a certain procedure, almost like a ritual. There are certain checks to be made, a certain order things are done, and of course there are those who have important supporting roles in the hunt. Aside from the huntsmen and dog handlers, beaters also play an important role in all kinds of hunts; their role is especially important when hunting fowl such as pheasant, grouse and other game birds. The beater is tasked with moving through areas with moderate to heavy ground cover, usually armed with a stick, flag, or similar instrument. This drives the prey into the open where the huntsman or woman can get a clear shot, and the action itself is called a ‘drive’.
The beater will usually carry a harking horn which can be used to get the attention of the rest of the hunt party from long distances. This is important when hunts are taking place over large areas and when there is a large hunting party to manage. All members of the hunting party will need to be familiar with the calls that the beater makes with their harking horn and it is an important means of communication to help keep everything organised.
