Shooting Times & Country

17-Apr-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.

We should not be under any illusion — those who hate what we do aren’t interested in constructive discussions or collaborative conservation. They are extremists who want to see an end to game shooting.Over the past century, extremism in various guises has reared its ugly head in this country. I think…

hares thrive on grouse moors

Claims that grouse moor management is devastating mountain hare numbers in the Scottish Highlands have been debunked by new research. A team of scientists from the GWCT has found that hares are flourishing on grouse moors. “The Scottish government must examine why hares are failing away from grouse moors” In August last year, a study by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the RSPB claimed that mountain hare populations in the eastern Highlands had been reduced to one per cent of their 1950s level (News, 22 August 2018).
