Shooting Times & Country


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.

Lindt, a two-year-old cocker, is very relaxed in the house but the wildest spaniel you’ve ever seen when out in the field. There is nothing she loves more than a good retrieve and the praise that follows. In association with Orvis For all things dog, Shooting Times recommends Orvis.co.uk  Outdoor outfitters, instructors and apparel makers since 1856. ■…

countryfile calling

“I’ve been thinking,” said Ian Bell, the head man at BASC, while we were having lunch last week, “that our presence at the Game Fair is important, but we really need to be just as visible at the likes of Countryfile Live.”There are some Shooting Times readers to whom the word Countryfile is anathema, but Ian’s point was an important one. The Game Fair is a superb do, and catching up with readers on our stand there is one of my favourite weekends of the summer, but how many weekends a year do I spend talking to the non-shooting public about the benefits of our sport? The simple answer is not enough.Ian went on to suggest that there is little point trying to persuade the hardcore anti-shooting lobby that…

“come back to the table”

Police Superintendent Nick Lyall, chair of the Raptor Persecution Priority Delivery Group (RPPDG), has told Shooting Times that he wants the pro-shooting bodies that boycotted the last meeting to return to the table and that he is willing to negotiate over the group’s future membership.In a wide-ranging interview, Police Supt Lyall compared the minority of people who shoot who are involved in the illegal killing of birds of prey to corrupt police officers, and expressed his belief that engagement with the shooting community was vital to tackling raptor crime.BASC, the Countryside Alliance, the Moorland Association and the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation boycotted the group’s last meeting, citing concerns over trust and leaking, and criticising the decision to invite new organisations to the group.(ALAMY) “Actually, the shooting industry is very…

police winning coursing war

Hare coursing was made illegal by the Hunting Act 2004 Strong police action on hare coursing in Lincolnshire has seen the number of reported incidents fall to 686 in 2018-19 from 1,175 in 2017-18.Lincolnshire Police said the decline was a result of working more closely with rural communities and the use of new technology and tactics, such as seizing dogs, to prevent offending. Officers seized 76 dogs between September 2017 and March 2018.Chief Inspector Phil Vickers, the force lead on rural crime at Lincolnshire Police, told Shooting Times: “The decision last year to seize dogs has made Lincolnshire a less attractive place to course.”Other tactics include the use of drones, which has proved effective (News, 6 February), and investigation of the broader criminal activities of those involved.Chief…

muntjac despatch distress

The Invasive Species Order will make it illegal to rescue muntjac A West Midlands woman who called the RSPCA when she found an injured muntjac in her aunt’s garden said she was distraught when the inspector humanely euthanised the deer — something that could become more common when the Invasive Species Order comes into effect on 29 March.Despite the RSPCA being in the garden with the owner’s permission and explaining what was about to happen, the caller filmed the incident and has posted it on social media.Speaking to Shooting Times, an RSPCA spokesman said: “We save thousands of wild animals every year, but sadly this adult deer was in pain after suffering a severe injury, making rehabilitation and release impossible, so emergency euthanasia was the kindest option.“Our…
