If i didn’t have to work for a living it would be very nice to say I’m not shooting on Easter Sunday. Unfortunately society dictates otherwise . Most of us only get a fews days off a week or a month or a year, if youre not working and have no family commitments id say crack on. A lot of these Gentlemanly rules were created by people who didn’t have to work for a living. Much the same as not shooting Game on a Sunday...... for the working man, apart from the fact it’s illegal I see nothing wrong with walking up a few hedgerows for the pot on a Sunday afternoon during the season.
Its sad that shooting 500 driven pheasants on Thursday as long as you don’t shoot on a Sunday makes you a Gentleman, where as grafting all week and then taking a few for the pot on the one day you get off makes you a undesirable creature with no morals or etiquette! Strange old world.
