By their very nature field sports - shooting, stalking, fishing etc have to be carried out in the field - ie rural areas.
Some of the media portrays fields sports as the sole preserve of country folk and is just a means of wildlife management.
I would be very interested to know how many of us, whilst we would all love to be living and working in the countryside, actually earn our livings in a more urban occupation and either live in towns / urban areas or if we do live in the country, end up commuting into towns for work.
This would be a good question for the BASC - how much of your membership lives in urban areas.
Myself - started off in Agriculture, from a farming background but live and work in a city and travel out of the city for stalking, fishing , shooting etc.
