Thread: Grouse moors

  1. #1

    Grouse moors

    18,927 signatures doesn`t seem a lot of support for this when you consider the amount of people involved with field sports generally, but looks like the Government ( committee of ) have paid a little attention
    Never the less one in the eye for that "Buffoon" Packham and his disciples

    Agreed Bob, a poor response from the shooting community, good news however, but make no mistake Avery, Packham and their ilk, will be looking for any opportunity to discredit our way of life.

    The usual apathetic response from the shooting community unfortunately.

    Yes I'm guilty of this but now have just signed. Grouse shooting brings a lot of money to the moorlands any ban on shooting of one type will only encourage the anti shooting lobby.

    Mind you the RSPB moors have the worst record for breeding harriers and as we all know the only reason they don't breed ....................................

    Yes I saw this - a good outcome and response from the government but it is a bit frustrating that so few people signed it from our side!

    To some extent I can understand it. It feels like these days if you like guns, shooting and hunting then at best people will think you odd and at worst you'll have the hemp wearing beardy crew on your case hounding you on social media!!

    If you're shooting badly, you need a new gun. If you're shooting well then you deserve a new gun.

    We`re under pressure constantly as we all know from the TV know buggerall brigade, but bloody hell there should be at least 144,500 signatures on that petition from BASC members alone !
