Shooting Times & Country

10-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.

a sporting paradox

Last week, I received a sad message from my mother. A group of three goslings whose progress she has been tracking since they were born on our pond have become only two. One afternoon they set off down the lane towards our local town. Spotting them, she headed them off and encouraged them back to the water. Somewhere along the way, one was lost — our neighbour’s cat is the prime suspect. In a few months, when those goslings have become geese, there is every chance I will shoot and eat them. On a simple level, I can understand why people think it paradoxical that those who shoot are guided by a deep-rooted respect for animals, but it’s entirely logical. Those who have lain in a ditch for hours with hail lashing…

wild food on the timetable

Schoolchildren across the country have been getting out on to managed moorland to learn about shooting, habitat management and wildlife. In the Scottish Highlands the Angus Glens Moorland Group has taken more than 100 children and young people out on estates where they have spent time with gamekeepers, shepherds and fishing gillies. The sessions have been designed as a hands-on experience, with youngsters learning how to shear sheep and shoot clays, as well as enjoying a game barbecue. The visits were organised by group co-ordinator Lianne MacLennan. “During the sessions, it was interesting to see kids out of their comfort zones and gaining an insight into our roles in the countryside and life on a working sporting estate,” said Lianne. “There was one child who said if they were hungry, they would just put…

llkley moor arsonist faces jail

A Bradford man is facing “a substantial sentence of imprisonment” after pleading guilty to setting fire to Ilkley Moor earlier this year. Mohammed Zulkifl’s barrister claimed his client had tried to stamp out the flames, and when he thought he had succeeded he ran away, but the fire spread. Judge Neil Davey QC warned Zulkifl not to take comfort in the decision to grant bail until a sentencing hearing is held. “The obvious sentence is a substantial sentence of imprisonment. You must be under no illusions about that,” he said. The fire was one of a number that caused serious damage to the council-owned moorland in April this year. Bradford Council has now imposed a public spaces protection order banning the use of fires, barbecues, Chinese lanterns and anything that uses a naked flame…

more women getting sgcs

The number of shotgun and firearm certificates issued to women has increased, according to figures published by the Home Office, though men still make up the vast majority of firearm and shotgun owners. Out of the 591,302 certificate holders, 35,622 are women — an increase of 1,233 compared with last year. Claire Sadler, BASC’s first female vice-chairman, said: “It’s fantastic news that more women are coming into shooting. It shows that contrary to the stereotypes, shooting welcomes diversity. “It is also positive news for shooting to see increases in the overall numbers of people holding shotgun and firearm certificates. The more people sharing our passion, the greater our power to fight for the changes that are necessary to protect shooting’s future.” Overall, the number of certificate holders has increased by roughly one per…

to do this week

CONTROL With silage and hay being cut across the country, great foxing opportunities are being created. Freshly mown fields often draw in foxes from the neighbouring countryside. Scanning fields with a lamp or thermal spotter could provide the chance to catch up with a troublemaker. CHECK Periods of warm weather increase the risk of botulism outbreaks in ducks and geese. The disease typically begins with an inability to dive or fly, and paralysis spreads to the legs and the neck, which become limp. If you suspect an outbreak you should seek veterinary advice.…

row as tagged eagles disappear

Campaigners and estate owners have clashed over the apparent disappearance of two golden eagles in Highland Perthshire. “Smearing grouse shooting in this way is not justified” Signals from the satellite tags fitted to both of the birds, which had been named Adam and Charlie, suddenly went offline on the morning of 18 April. The last fixes from the tags both came from the same estate, with one tag’s final signal appearing to come from ground level at a vehicle turning circle and another from a nearby hillside. The matter was reported to the police, but a search by officers found no further evidence. Campaigners claimed the eagles had been illegally killed. Green Party MSP Andy Wightman, who was involved in tagging one of the birds, said: “We know from a review published in…
