One of you guys has highlighted on another thread on this forum the attack by antis on a shoot, which then used Health & Safety legislation against the shoot.
This is a serious issue, and I hope to give you some back ground.
5 years ago BASC wrote risk assessment guidance specifically for shoots. We put this up on our web site, into Shooting & Conservation magazine, and sent information to all of our affiliated clubs and syndicates.
The information is constantly updated and revised based on any changes in law and any feedback from members.
After the most recent event, we again wrote to all affiliated clubs and syndicates, sent articles into Shooting Times, Sporting Gun, Sporting Shooter, Shooting Gazette, etc. There will also be a story in the next issue of Shooting & Conservation.
If any of you would like a copy of our guidance you can get it off the web site or e-mail me and I will post you a copy.
Attacks on stalkers are pretty rare- attacks on organised shoots are not, nor are attacks on pigeon shooters. Looking at this later group, BASC have developed guidance for lone shooters, which may be relevant for stalkers as well?
Let me know your thoughts.
