The sign probably shows a game shooter, i.e. a shooter of game birds (pheasants etc.), but it could be a gamekeeper. The dogs appear to be English setters, which are used for this sport; their purpose being to set or point upland game birds. The breed in some shape or form seems to have been around for at least 400 years. Presumably the pub had some connection with this sport, or perhaps it was a popular pastime in the area, so it was decided to give the pub its name.
