Shooting Times & Country

Shooting Times & Country 27-Nov-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.

actions not words

Last week, while scrolling through social media after stalking hinds, I noticed a number of people were up in arms about Bird Watching, the UK’s bestselling twitching title. Many were ‘appalled’, some threatened to cancel their subscriptions and the vice-president of the RSPB branded the whole thing ‘bizarre’. The cause of all the unrest was a double-page spread advertising lamps, bipods and thermal equipment. It’s inclusion, according to the magazine’s Twitter page, was “the result of a mistake at the production stage” and it stressed that it “in no way supports the shooting of any wildlife”. In the real world, it is almost universally recognised that culling predators — as the RSPB is known to do — is the only way to ensure that ground-nesting birds have a future. On my way south,…

hunting trophy ban threat to deer-stalking industry

Defra is considering a ban on all trophy-hunting exports, including trophies taken from the UK’s abundant and well-managed deer species. “A ban on all hunting trophies entering or leaving the UK” is one of four options being considered as part of Defra’s consultation on regulating trophy imports and exports (News, 20 November). The consultation document explains that the ban would be enforced at the UK border by border force officers who would be given “necessary powers to detect and pursue illegal movement”. The consultation document acknowledged that: “There is a risk that benefits to conservation and local communities from well-managed trophy hunting of certain species would be lost.” “A ban on all hunting trophies entering or leaving the UK is one of four options considered” The move is a particular threat to the UK’s world-renowned…

hunter targeted by trolls

A hunter is facing threats and online abuse after posting pictures of herself alongside animals she has shot. Lucy Rose Jaine, a 29-year-old mother of two, is from Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island, posted a series of pictures on Instagram showing her with non-native wild pigs, goats, tahr, red deer and wallabies she had shot to feed her family. On newshub.co.nz, Ms Rose Jaine said: “I’ve received death threats, comments saying I shouldn’t have children, that I should be skinned like a pig. Comments in languages I don’t understand and vomiting emojis.” But she is unruffled by the abuse: “I think it’s mainly from non-hunters who find hunting quite shocking.” Ms Rose Jaine’s choice of hunting attire — she is often pictured in a bikini alongside animals she has shot — has…

new deactivated gun law

The delay to Brexit has forced the UK Government to introduce new controls on the ownership and transfer of deactivated firearms. From 12 December, anyone acquiring or transferring a deactivated gun will be required to register it with the Home Office. Failure to do so could result in a fine of £200 and a criminal record. Notification of the ownership of deactivated firearms will be staggered, with an immediate requirement to register firearms acquired after September 2018. As the UK has not left the EU on either of the dates it was scheduled to do so, it has been compelled to introduce the EU Firearms Directive into UK law. The directive was introduced following terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015. The more extreme provisions, which included compulsory licensing of all deactivated firearms, were…

to do this week

BASC and curlew conservationist Mary Colwell want your pictures. BASC is calling on people to send in their photographs as part of a newly launched competition celebrating all that is special about shooting and the British countryside.The competition has four categories: Wildlife; In the Field; Working Dogs; and Field to Fork. Mary is looking for high-quality pictures of curlews that her new charity, Curlew Action, can use. STALK Now that the stag season has closed, north of the Border hind stalking can offer brilliant value for money and a truly memorable hunting experience. Though it is traditionally undertaken by estate stalkers and gamekeepers, more and more estates are letting hind stalking to paying guests, often at a fraction of the cost of stalking stags. While the sport is excellent, you will need to…

decoying ensures survival of fattest

Shooting over decoys targets geese in poorer condition, according to scientists at the University of Missouri. “The shot birds were more likely to die of natural causes anyway” Working with Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the scientists focused on Ross’s geese and lesser snow geese, which are closely related to our greylags. The birds were shot during their northward spring migration, either by being attracted to decoys or by flushing flocks. After the birds were shot, their fat levels were measured. Body fat is the main energy store for migrating geese and is a key component of the goose’s condition. Geese with high body fat levels are generally thought to be more likely to survive migration and to breed successfully than those with lower fat levels. In the 1980s scientists were able to establish…
