    we have no deer on Shetland ,geese plenty, blue hare, grouse ,some sea cliff areas are over run with rabbit ,seal shooting is now all under licence,there is no market now for seal products ,at one time sealing made most of my income. as for Sullom voe oil terminal no shooting in the area they are very sensitive about the wild life otters ducks ,several people are employed filming, counting and so no ,to promote a super clean oil free inviroment ,bird watching and wild life watching are a large part of the shetland tourist industry ,at times the hill are alive with twitchers ,usualy at a time when we leave the birds in peace to rear there brood .

    I was up there working at the terminal back along and asked the question whether there are deer and I was told no, not one on the island. I stand to be corrected but that was what I've been told... As for other shooting I'm not sure how easy it will be to secure any but there must be some wildfowling.
