Beater is the word I think, at least that's what they were in pheasant hunting where I used to live.
Raffles has yet to catch or even see anything bigger than a vole, though he did catch a mouse and a vole in the space of about 20 minutes, which I swear is better than next door's mouser. We had a pheasant around here for a while though I think he scared it off - pity as I was thinking up recipes for it!
His eyesight for prey is terrible though his nose is fantastic. He flushed out a couple of hares a few weeks ago, but was so busy nose to the ground he never saw them.
