Shooting Times & Country 17-Jul-2019

Since its launch in 1882, Shooting Times & Country Magazine has been at the forefront of the shooting scene. The magazine is the clear first choice for shooting sportsmen, with editorial covering all disciplines, including gameshooting, rough shooting, pigeon shooting, wildfowling and deer stalking. Additionally the magazine has a strong focus on the training and use of gundogs in the field and, because it is a weekly publication, the magazine keeps readers firmly up-to-date with the latest news in their world.

it’s good to talk

It probably hasn’t escaped your attention that the phone has become an integral part of modern life. Smartphones can do almost anything, yet their original purpose is still the best. Some weeks ago, driving back from Hampshire where I’d been shooting clays, I got a call (hands-free) from a long-time reader who was pleased to note, in my editorial column, that I’d been to the Isle of Sheppey. For the next 15 minutes he recalled in fine detail many decades of rough shooting in that rugged part of Kent. A few days ago my phone rang again. It was Peter Wildgoose, an aptly named Hebridean wildfowler of some renown, who had called to tell me about a Greener harpoon gun in a Shetland museum. Our conversation turned to the spare population of grouse…

leadership hopefuls state their case on gun licensing

The candidates to be Conservative leader and prime minister have told the Countryside Alliance where they stand on a range of rural and fieldsports issues. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt answered questions on issues from rural broadband to the general licences, with both committing to deliver a Brexit that works for rural communities. With concerns increasing over firearms licensing, the condenters were asked if they would ensure there were “no undue restrictions on legitimate gun ownership and use”. Mr Hunt said he “wouldn’t introduce any undue restrictions”. However, Mr Johnson, who is leading Mr Hunt in the opinion polls by a huge margin, took a different line, saying: “We rightly have some of the strictest gun laws in the world. I believe that legitimate ownership and use should come with robust levels of…

crowds flock to scottish fair

More than 30,000 visitors have made the trip to Scone near Perth for the 31st GWCT Scottish Game Fair. The popular fixture featured pipe bands, foxhounds, gundogs, birds of prey, a stunt show, terrier racing and the French hunting band, Les Trompes de la Cottenciniere. There were daily clay-shooting competitions, and fishing experts Scott Mackenzie and Glenda Powell dazzled the crowds. The Fred Taylor Memorial Trophy for working hill ponies on Sunday went to Harmony, an eight-year-old Highland, together with her handler Rebecca Cantwell from the Balmoral estate. The English carried off some of the show’s most prestigious prises. Team England won the Four Nations International Gundog Competition, and the Scottish Gamekeepers Association Young Gamekeeper of the Year prize was also taken by an Englishman, Ciaran Woodman-Robinson. According to his first headkeeper, Ciaran, from Worcestershire,…

safari firms banned by nec

Hunting safari operators will not be allowed at the Great British Shooting Show in 2020. The National Exhibition Centre announced the ban after a petition collected 30,000 signatures. The authors of the petition claimed that allowing “these firms to promote their sickening activities at the Birmingham NEC will bring shame on the Birmingham NEC and Britain”. A spokesman for the venue said: “The NEC continues to be a venue that permits a wide range of content. However, we are also a business that is built around its customers and therefore listens to them. “We fully understand concerns regarding the activities of some British Shooting Show exhibitors, and have acted. Taking these concerns and the safety of staff and visitors into consideration, we will be removing exhibitors that practise safari hunting from the show…

to do this week

FISH A string of feathers or a cheap spinner are all that is needed for a great fishing experience and a tasty dinner as hot weather and warmer water bring mackerel shoals to British shores. Mackerel are highly aggressive, predatory fish and can be caught by a range of simple methods, including the classic string of brightly coloured feathers. For fly anglers a gaudy trout lure can be used to hook the fish, which put up a spectacular fight on light tackle. CLEAN Drinkers put out for game birds are a potential source of disease and should be kept clean and hygienic. Proprietary sanitisers such as CiD Clean can help prevent the build-up of bio-films and the spread of disease. Consult your equipment supplier and ensure any chemicals used are safe for drinking…
