Time to improve your image?
The advert on page 101 of the July/August issue of the BASC magazine.

So do I take it BASC is now backing the shooting of deer at night?! But then those that do it don't give a damn and now have consent from BASC. Great advert, what sort of message are they sending?

Having read that advert, it appears they are inviting people to look at and try out night vision scopes and binoculars.

It doesn't say 'shoot deer' and does not mention telescopic sights or night vision for the purpose. Think you can suppose what you like, but there is no mention of shooting, just a thermal image of a deer. Had it been a man, for example, am sure this would not imply the shooting of people.

Nothing like jumping to conclusions! What about the use of TI equipment for census work and population assessment...?

Hi

Not sure, but it looks like you're getting 2+2=5...

The article doesn't mention shooting dear at night. Ok, it's photo of a deer, taken at night, but that's all. Why not use FLIR kit to build a better Management Plan? There are IR trail cameras that hunters use, but to track and monitor not (I'd hope) to actually shoot at night.

Not sure that this is a valid issue, but happy to see what others feedback

Cheers

Let me say this if BASC are wrong ill say so if they get things right as they have many times and are extremely helpfully I'll praise them but here you have made here OP is that fatal mistake" assumption" which as we all know is the mother of all f**k ups! Time to get your foot out of your mouth.

here we go BASC bashing, above my message is a Scott country advert, night vision optics, since when did shooting of deer at night become a desicions of BASC, it's legal, and carried out by many people off this site, not me I hasten to add,.
So if you don,t want to shoot at night don,t do it, but mind your own buissness what others do.

Also i'm pretty sure the night license allows u to use artifical light, i'm pretty sure night vison gear is not allowed.

All the people i know that do shoot under license only use lamp's (and it is far more common in scotland)

Night vision/thermal imaging equipment is a useful aid to observing deer at night, especially as an aid to establishing deer density.

There is some amazing kit available - but also some utter rubbish!!!

So well done to BASC for organising that.

Used them more than time or two to be honest but it was against lurchermen and nightshooters(the pheasant variety).Very good for watching thieves as well while you mass the troops.
I can see what you mean if they were deer poachers though!

Do I take it BASC is now backing the shooting of deer at night?

Do I take it from your post that you have a prejudice against BASC and are unaware that thermal imaging is almost as useful in daylight as it is at night?

I suspect the answer to my question is yes, but I'm sure the answer to yours is no.

Get a grip The Deer Man. Any opportunity and your hammering BASC. And while were talking BASC, It's not their fault there are so many knobheads shooting the wrong species and in the wrong habitats with lead shot is it.

Some people just can’t help themselves can they? Honestly, get a grip on reality; how on earth can this be seen as BASC promoting the night shooting of deer – go one tell me?:confused:

A case of beer to the first person who can prove to me, beyond any reasonable doubt that this advert condones night shooting of deer? The cost of the beer will come from my pocket not BASC;s precious funds!:cool:

OK perhaps the OP was a joker? But it made me chuckle how quick one or two were to jump on the old bandwagon! :lol:
