Shooting Times & Country

Shooting Times & Country 23-Oct-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.

do your bit

For the second time this season, I’m heading to Humberside. This particular trip is a bit of a pilgrimage — I’m planning to get under some geese on the marshes shot over by Stanley Duncan, arguably Britain’s most famous wildfowler and one of Shooting Times’s greatest writers. It is a tremendous source of pride to me that, for more than 130 years, this magazine has served as a journal for those who squelch across the saltings while the rest of the world sleeps. I can’t help noticing, however, that when I speak to wildfowlers from Hampshire to the Hebrides the theme of struggling to get more people involved comes up often. In an effort to do my bit, I’ve joined the Langstone & District Wildfowlers & Conservation Association. I certainly didn’t make it…

saboteurs stage campaign to disrupt wildfowlers

Messages from a closed Facebook group have revealed an organised campaign of sabotage and harassment against wildfowlers on Scotland’s east coast. The messages were passed to Shooting Times by a source who had taken them from a group dedicated to sabotaging legal wildfowling at Findhorn Bay. The bay has been the site of a long-running and acrimonious dispute pitting wildfowlers against some local residents. “We will be walking solely for the purpose of annoying the shooters, is that OK with you?” In Scotland, wildfowling below the high-tide line is a public right and is not usually governed by clubs as it is in England. Scots law also gives a right of responsible access to open country, which includes most areas of foreshore. For a number of years wildfowlers on the bay have alleged that…

new chairman for alliance

The Countryside Alliance has appointed a new chairman to replace MP Simon Hart, who resigned earlier this year. The new chairman is Nick Herbert MP, the former minister for policing and criminal justice, and a former shadow environment secretary. He is the MP for a rural constituency in Sussex and has a long-standing involvement with fieldsports. Mr Herbert was the director of public affairs at the British Field Sports Society, a predecessor of the Countryside Alliance. Commenting on the appointment, Alliance chief executive Tim Bonner said: “We are incredibly pleased that Nick has agreed to take up the role. He has a wealth of experience in campaigning and politics, which will be a huge help to the Alliance.” Nick Herbert said: “I’m honoured to be taking up this role at such a critical time for…

anti-shooting move slammed

The decision by Liverpool City Council to adopt a motion condemning all forms of hunting and shooting has been slammed as a “gross misrepresentation” by BASC. The motion said the council “declares its complete opposition to any form of hunting live animals with hounds or shooting live game, in the UK or overseas. We note that this is barbaric in all cases, and in many cases also threatens species that are already precarious.” Garry Doolan, BASC’s deputy director of communications, delivered a five-minute address to the hearing but said afterwards: “We made extremely robust points in favour of shooting and the work done in conservation to support shooting, but the mayor of Liverpool and the councillors were not interested in our arguments. “They have labelled all people who shoot in the UK as…

to do this week

FISH Switch to red flies for salmon. With the season coming to an end on many rivers and the first frosts setting in, salmon behaviour starts to change. As the fish become increasingly territorial a switch to red flies is often used to trigger aggressive territorial instincts, particularly in male fish. Colder water also generally calls for deeper, slower fishing. CALL Try calling rutting deer. With rutting activity now at full throttle in many areas there is a good chance of calling in the stag or buck of your dreams. A variety of proprietary deer calls are available, but skilled practitioners are often able to produce a convincing imitation using nothing but their own voice. Imitating the smell of rutting stag is more difficult and perhaps best not attempted by stalkers who value…
