Putting aside the equipment that aids accurate and humane shooting such as telescopic sights, moderators, range finders etc I was wondering what opinions are of the other developments that are now finding there way into the world of rifle shooting?
I have read articles in print and on internet forums where on or two things have got me thinking on the ethics of various techniques and devices. To name a few:
Electronic animal calls, widely used for fox calling, but I have also seen them advertised for Sika deer and if I looked hard enough I dare say they are available for Roe, Red etc etc.
Night vision equipment and scopes, I've read mention of them used in the pursuit of rats, rabbits, foxes, and even wildboar. I would guess they are used in places under license for night shooting deer.
Lamping, a very effective technique for controlling pest species but lamping deer is regarded as unsporting (and of course illegal except under license), so why is it acceptable to lamp boar?
