  7. Personally I think with animal welfare groups and the amount of opposition to shooting increasing it wouldn’t surprise me if it all gets really really regulated. Buying licences to shoot vermin/pest as we all know them (pigeons rabbits crows magpies etc) then it’ll be pheasant shoots getting more and more expensive to run, effectively meaning it’ll be the more wealthy who can afford to do it (£50+ a bird for a cheap shoot). Grouse will end up out of bounds all together. Deer will end up on the list for people who are registered and have done DSC courses, and have to be registered company for deer control. I honestly think this could be beginning of the end for anything other than target shooting, it’ll take time but give it 20 years and it’ll be a thing of the past. Thats why I’m putting in for more variations on my fac now and booking a grouse shoot for this year!
  8. Yes! It’s never been opened I think, will check which one but I think it’s lymans 7th edition or something like that. I’ll check in the morning and let you know
  9. Yeah wasn’t chuffed when my dad dropped one of my mags when we were out, still not found it! Luckily it was the standard 4 shot mag and I’ve still got the 8 shot mag!
  10. Yeah saw that, basically means NE cocked up so it been passed upstairs!
  11. I’m seeing a lot of stuff in the media about how badly it’s been handled, how there was no consultation, how ridiculous the situation is with the new license applications etc, which is great but, it’s be more helpful if we actually had more progress on where we all stand in plain and simple terms. People are confused about the current situation! All the finger pointing doesn’t really help farmers who want to know what they can and can’t do right now!!! I had one rfd tell my dad today that it’s all been sorted and to carry on as he was, luckily he rang me to tell me the good news! Told him to hold his horses!!
  12. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love it to stay as it is, but just can’t see it happening. I was curious about what part of shooting pigeons could be given up, as in which is the least effective and could therefore be used as a bargaining tool!
  13. We all know the new version is going to end up as a compromise, hopefully allowing farmers to have their crops protected and pests controlled. As I see it our best chance to keep things as good as we can is going to be a compromise on it, the question is what are we willing to give up? I don’t think we’re going to have it all as it was for the short term and probably even less so in the long term. Personally, I think this will be the slow beginning of a huge amount of restrictions on shooting. Firstly pigeons, then game birds, then deer management. So, what would we concede in terms of pigeon shooting? Roost shooting? Flight line shooting? A closed season? Obviously we’d LIKE to keep it how it is, ok just can’t see it happening. With regard to crows, would they say only on farms with livestock? Just curious as I think a compromise is going to be the only way it’s going to go. Hopefully they’ve put forward their terms and Basc/Ca etc can put forward their arguments to keep as much as possible.
