    The beginning of the end of fieldsports in Scotland?

    Yet to read the full paper however from the article the 'Scottish Government' are clearly setting out their stall......

    BBC News - Land ownership reforms proposed

    I'm more and more coming to the conclusion that I'll vote yes in the referendum. Not because it's the best thing for Scotland but because it'll be very interesting to see what happens! It'll either turn into a 1950s soviet state, or an absolute utopia.
    The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

    I suggest it will be the former.

    There seem to be lots of grand ideas, just hope it works, if there is independance.

    And of course the BBC illustrate their article with a sinister silhouette, even though a "team photo" of all the staff employed by the kind of estate they're referring to and who whose livelihoods and way of life such change would jeopardise, would be more appropriate.

    And by the by, when was the last time anyone on here took a kneeling shot with a shotgun?

    The bunny hugging brigade are in the majority we the field sports enthusiasts are in the minority they don't give a ***** for our way of life .
    Look at their track record ie tail docking we are still waiting after 5 years loads of promises ,and result nothing.
    Air rifles are only the start ,despite a very large petition and evidence in our favour wee hitler will go ahead and licence air rifles .
    Semi auto shotguns are next . Then what ?.
    I love my country as mutch as the next man but cant see a Scotland with any kind of field sports for the masses in the future.

    Every dog deserves a well trained owner.

    It was the last time the keeper told me to make sure there was plenty of clear sky around any bird I shot at.
