doing the rounds

Last Saturday, I was lucky to be invited along to the sort of shoot I love. There were nine Guns, the beating line was made up of friends, grandparents and a neighbour’s errant spaniel, and the mixed bag of 28 we shot were argued over at the end of the day. Tust before lunch, as two woodcock flew over, a man in a dark cagoule, with a pug panting on the end of a pink lead, appeared over the horizon. “Missed a few,” he chuckled while wandering past. He was being charitable — it had been rather more than a few — but I smiled and nodded, while thinking about how important it is that those out shooting are friendly to passers-by. “I’m a postman,” the pug owner continued, “and I love this…

nesting season is the best time for vital fox control

A scientific study has found that fox control by gamekeepers is effective in reducing numbers during the breeding season for ground-nesting birds — just when it is most needed. Predation expert Tom Porteus of the GWCT studied the effectiveness of fox control on 22 shooting estates across the country, from arable farms on the south coast to moorland in the Scottish Highlands. He combined data collected on the ground with sophisticated computer modelling to calculate the effect of new foxes moving into the area to replace those culled and of foxes having cubs. He found that on all the estates gamekeepers reduced the number of foxes during the peak breeding season for vulnerable ground-nesting birds. On average, the density of foxes was reduced to 47 per cent of what it would have been…

no free vote on hunting act

A commitment to a free vote on fox hunting will not be included in the Conservative Party manifesto, a change from previous general elections. Since the introduction of the 2004 Hunting Act every Conservative manifesto has included a commitment to a vote to allow the use of dogs to control foxes. However, it now explicitly states that a Conservative government “will make no changes to the Hunting Act”. The news came as the Countryside Alliance launched its “I am rural and I vote” Twibbon campaign. A Twibbon is a small banner that can be added to a social media profile picture to show support for a cause. Sarah Lee, head of policy at the Countryside Alliance, said: “Twibbons are just another way to spread a message at election time. In this case, we…

game is a hit with children

The Taste of Game of project has had 150 children across six Birmingham schools cooking and eating british game meat. Taste of Game officer Matt Gisby demonstrated how to butcher and cook game, with the pupils then getting a taste of a pheasant, apple and horseradish bruschetta. The ambitious project aims to give 60,000 school pupils an experience of cooking and eating game by 2020 Matt Gisby said: “The Game Changer project gives an opportunity that these schools wouldn’t normally get. The positivity from the students and the teachers really showed its value. “With only two of the students ever having tried pheasant before, it was no surprise the groups were a bit apprehensive at the beginning of each session. However, by the end they had all butchered and cooked a pheasant and…

scottish act will target most cruel

Tough new penalties for offences against deer and badgers could soon be introduced in introduced in Scotland. Under the Animals and Wildlife (Penalties, Protections and Powers) (Scotland) Bill, anyone convicted of a cruelty offence against wild deer could face up to five years in prison. “Anyone convicted of hunting a wild mammal with a dog could face five years in prison” The changes have come in response to a number of high-profile animal cruelty and wildlife crime offences, including a number of badger baiting cases and the use of banned pesticides to target birds of prey. The proposed act will update a range of Scottish animal protection and wildlife laws, changing the way crimes are tried and increasing the penalties available to courts. Among the key changes proposed in the act is to make…
