    Might seem a bit weird, but I've always thought the Hunting Act works very well; most anti's (apart from the hardcore activists) think Hunting has been banned, whilst in reality the Act is so full of holes that many Huts carry on exactly as they did before. My concern is that if it is repealed, a more effective ban might be brought in sometime in the future.

    Yeah I tend to agree talking to the local hunt master he reckons its never been so popular even more so since the ban I don't think it had the impact they thought it would have ,he tells me that I think only three people have been charged in relation to the hunting act since it came in hardly a huge amount is it.....

    Or if it is repealed it might deter further legislation of this nature. Game shooting and the use of lead shot and bullets are currently in the firing line, without a determined and united fight from the countrysports community we are bound to see a steady erosion of our liberties. It is not a question of whether hunting etc. is a good idea or not, it is a matter of having the freedom to choose. atb Tim
