Nick has been highly instrumental in establishing and growing Davis & Bowring’s Sporting department since 1987, when he began working as a Sporting Agent having originally worked in a land agency management role.

Moving to Suffolk in the late 60s he started shooting pigeons and then game on his uncle’s farm; these were ‘red letter’ days and early game book entries run to several pages of enthusiastic notes and diagrams!
