    What a load of ***te! As usual for tabloid rags the article is poorly researched and emotively written.
    They couldn't even resist wheeling out poor old Cecil the lion for another mention, as if it was somehow relevant.

    No we should not hide away. Public awareness is what is needed. Explanation about management and 'free range' food. Look at how popular free range chicken / pork has become.
    Sustainable management and a healthy food source.

    The thing is, "They" don't want "Us" to have firearms, free range or otherwise the food issue is weak in their camp.

    Reporting on conservation and boosting local economies is the way to go, unfortunately we have a small platform to get the message out. And as much as it pains me, the majority of people who read such emotive drivel have already made up their minds and simply won't be convinced any other way.

    Yes, I agree that the Mirror appeals to a narrow group of people who will almost certainly have closed minds as far as 'hunting' goes.

    You will note that they chose to run this article during Labour conference week when 'toff-bashing' will be unusually well received. The right-wing press is doing exactly the same to Corbyn & his cronies this week too, and both sides are taking stories & using them out of context & exaggerating flaws in either sides policies, characters or histories. All a bit distasteful really & very dismissive of their readers abilities to make their own minds up.

    Anyway, the article was concentrating on trophy hunting & I think that a great number of people have a problem with this, alongside big-bag pheasant days. The vast majority of people are very accepting & often curious about the idea of going for a wander to get the odd rabbit, pheasant or deer for the pot. It's excess that's generally disapproved of.

    I was sad to see that it was Charlie that was being picked on as I've especially enjoyed his thoughtfully produced & well photographed short films on deer stalking.

    The new shadow DEFRA woman have anything to do with this.as posted its conference week and any anti publicity is a boon to their self serving platform.doesnt matter if its positive publicity for shooting a fleet street hack would turn it around and then the damage is done.when they slander/liable or defaim anyone the retraction statement is normally hidden on page 29 in the smallest print going.soon as joepublic reads nasty hunter kills everything its believed by 80% of the public as gospel.we need better publicity and to stay in the public eye for conservation not hide in the dark corners.

    The tide is getting bigger to turn I fear - anyone celebrity wise who put their head above the parapet to offer a balanced point of view would almost certainly kiss their careers goodbye, yet this is what it really needs. We're back to the old media skew on things again.

    A real and concerted effort is required by the likes of BASC and the CA to get some profile in the media - the battle for moderate public opinion will not be won in any other way.

    It beggars belief that we can live in a society that watches barrel bombs being dropped on schools but can't stomach a bit of deer management on Countryfile
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent
