  1. Following are all as described and pics are readily available if you PM me please. Too many pics, which when reduced to permitted size are not clearly visable. Thanks for looking. 1/ Beautiful unworn and as new, dark green German made Hucklecote Moser Loden shooting jacket SOLD subject to payment Loden fabric is derived from the coarse, oily wool of mountain sheep and has a traditional bluish-green colour. The manufacturing process produces a material that has good warmth for the weight, is supple, soft, windproof, waterproof, breathable and extremely durable. Made in Germany, this is a top quality shooting jacket offering a traditional yet elegant alternative to tweed. Two way YKK heavy duty zip and button front, two bellows cartridge pockets, two hand warmer pockets, internal zip pocket, reinforced elbows, elasticated cuffs and beautifully lined. Marked size 40, not sure if that’s UK or continental, so actual measurements as follows: Pit to pit across front of jacket 25ins (63cm) Coat length, from base of collar to hem at rear 36.5ins (93cm) Arm length from base of collar to cuff 32ins (81cm) Closest equivalent I can find from Europe is over £400 (H&H offer one for £1100!!).

  3. BASC Head Office, Marford Mill, Rossett, Wrexham, LL12 0HL Contact Important news on general licences Natural England announces temporary revocation BASC is advising members that Natural England (NE) is temporarily revoking three general licences in England for controlling certain wild birds from Thursday this week. These licences (GL 04/05/06) cover 16 species of birds including several members of the crow family, Canada goose and some gulls and pigeons. There is uncertainty as to when the temporary revocation will end. During that time, anyone needing to control one of these 16 bird species where there is no reasonable non-lethal alternative will need to apply for an individual licence. Natural England says it has simplified the process for applying for such a licence and details will be available on its gov.uk website on Thursday. NE says this action is the first stage of a planned review of general and class licences, which will be completed this year. The change follows a legal challenge to the way the licences have been issued, which could mean users who rely on them are not acting lawfully. BASC is disappointed that the shooting community has been given no notice of this change to the general licences. The situation is rapidly changing and we will update members as new information becomes available. Our website will provide the latest information.

  8. Guess it depends on your outlook towards our sport which is being attacked from so many quarters. Personally, I think that any legal pressure we can bring to bear against those determined to stop field sports is worthy. SC
