  1. Any update on this bill I can only only find a statement from Jan 2023 .
  2. Hi, I'm looking to join a syndicate for the coming season, as close as possible to the Lothians. I'm not bothered at all by bag size, rather after a place to work my cocker and enjoy the countryside. If you have or know about anything available, please get in touch. I know it's a long shot but might be lucky! Thanks
  3. Hi there, does anyone know of any wildfowl clubs around ayrshire/ glasgow/ stirling area?

  4. Hi All, I am a new shooter based in Scotland and just went through the process of applying for my first FAC and SGC! Process was very straight forward and as they misplaced my form I have been waiting months for it now 😞 Should be getting them through the post within the next week or so and thought I would ask any advice for beginners? What should I think about buying first and if anyone in Scotland could tell me anywhere for beginners to go shooting would be great Thanks
  5. Just heard that NS is closing schools from Friday. I would imagine BJ will be saying the same later this afternoon.
  6. Background. The Shoot is located on the fantastic Estate on the outskirts of Lockerbie in the Scottish Lowlands of Dumfries and Galloway. This shoot has prime access, being only 10 minutes from the A74 and is set in excellent surroundings. This shoot is of prime location within the lowlands near to the Scottish/English Border which is across 1000 acres, giving plenty of scope and variety of terrain all of which is easily accessible. The shoot has undergone reformation along with an improvement programme. Safety. Safety is our number one priority. We have a fully comprehensive health and safety policy incorporating a risk assessment for all sporting activities and shoot management aspects for the syndicate. A safety brief is delivered by our team captains at the start of all shoot days. The day’s proceedings. Our shoot dates are Saturdays with some dates set over the Christmas period the guns would be split into two teams and managed on a stand 1 beat 1 basis. The Syndicate meets at 08:45hrs for a 09:00hrs start, the teams are briefed by the team captains, this includes a brief on safety and layout for the day. We will then proceed to the drives for the morning. At around midday we will head to the shoot bothy were we will enjoy a comfortable packed lunch away from the elements, enjoy each others company with plenty of usual chatter on which birds were missed and the performance on the other teams beating. The teams will then proceed to the drives for the afternoon and will finish around 15:30hrs, the team will again head to the shoot bothy and enjoy another well deserved break. What to expect. An enjoyable day with the syndicate and its members, plenty of laughter and with some excellent scenery, a variety of terrain and areas to shoot. Not to forget some excellent quality and challenging birds. The quarry to be expected is Pheasants and Woodcock with the chance of duck. The birds presented have proven to be a challenge for its members over past seasons. This shoot is ideal for the experienced, novice and both female and young shooters as we encourage and promote the future of the sport. Any Guns wishing to bring their Partners and/or dogs with them for the day are most welcome to do so. Expected bag 40 head. What not to expect. Champaign breakfast, the sky full of birds and members of the British Aristocracy. Availability. I have a vacancy for 2019 season for full guns shooting fortnightly - expected bag range 30 to 60 birds stand beat 9 (possibility to add more) days £850 inclusive of liability insurance Land & topography The shoot is set within the rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway giving way to some valleys which give some testing birds on some drives. About the hosts The Syndicate always makes any guest of visitor feel most welcome, the team Captains and Shoot Captain have a professional approach in the way that the day is controlled and organised throughout the day. Reviews Mr. Frederick Corbett 19:27, 17 December 2017 Reviewing multiple visits Having been there for my first visit on the 2nd December 2017, I was impressed by the professional way this shoot is run and organised , which importantly instills confidence in the safety aspects which are high on my own agenda. The shoot captains and the syndicate members made me feel very welcome from the outset and i enjoyed my day here immensely. Would I recommend ?......I have booked a further four days, says it all. Visited multiple times Quarry Pheasant, Woodcock Overall average 5.8 points Mr. Jim Sutton 19:56, 12 February 2017 Reviewing January 28th 2017 Not the best weather on the day but that didn't ruin what was a very enjoyable day. Friendly team and good shooting Overall average 5.3 points Mr. James Syme 08:45, 11 January 2017 Reviewing March 18th 2019 Very friendly syndicate members, Keeper & son very organised & relaxed with clear instructions & worked very hard to retrieve every bird shot. Does what it says on the tin. Will be back Overall average 6 points Mr. Mark Butcher 18:25, 11 December 2016 Reviewing December 10th 2016 My wife and I enjoyed an excellent day here ,group of guns where friendly and soon you felt relaxed . We split into two teams and after the briefing by the shoot captain off we went. We saw plenty of birds and everyone had shooting , I saw some very good birds on one drive in particular . All in all this is a well organized shoot and a well executed day ,terrain is interesting and provides a variety of exciting shooting. We hope to go back for an other day. Value for money definitely. Visited in December 2016 Weather Bright & Still Quarry Pheasant, Woodcock Format Mini driven No. guns 10 Drives 6 Expected bag 40 Actual bag 38 Overall average 6 points Mr. Stephen Scott 10:10, 6 April 2016 Reviewing I took a place here for a gun for the day, we managed to get 3 drives in before we stopped due to extremely bad rain and wind it was the weekend that most of Cumbria got flooded in December. However I was very kindly invited back for another day FOC. I could tell that Jon who runs the shoot was desperate to show it in all of its glory. The second day did not disappoint! Great drives and really friendly people in wonderful countryside I don't think you can get better value for money than the Corrielaw syndicate.

  8. Looking for any rough shooting/ boundary days going. Ideally to join syndicate but happy to take one off days here and there if offered in the mean time. Happy to travel, have my own pointer looking to shoot over and 4x4. Trustworthy, experienced gun up for a laugh and social. If you have any leads I'd love to hear from you. Many thanks Nicky.
  9. on politics program today a ban by the Scottish gov. on e collars for dogs one gent proclaimed that this would also ban the type of device that is used to keep dogs in your garden you burry the wire around your boundary and the dog gets a warning beep as it gets close to it then a shock/vibration if it crosses it in the hope it will learn to keep away from the boundary and not escape to then get run over on a road. the minister on this program did not say if he was right to believe this to be the case.Now not after thoughts on the right or wrongs of E collars BUT will this affect the use of electric fences that are used around pens or horse paddocks or even for creep feeding for sheep.
  10. Hi, I'm new on here so hello everyone. I'm based in Scotland, I've been shooting airguns for many years but now the licensing has come in here i'm debating whether I should look at getting an FAC or shotgun certificate. This is new territory for me. My airgun license is for target shooting and pest control. The pest control part of the license is for 12.5 acres of land I own to control pests (rabbits, wood pigeon etc). The Land is pretty isolated and surrounded with a deer fence so access is very well controlled. Its not flat so there are plenty of backstops. The airgun lacks range and I was considering a FAC air gun to extend the useful range but after looking into it I'm not convinced the cost of the airgun for the small increase in range is worth it when you look at 22lr and 17hmr etc. Getting the airgun license was my first experience of licensing. From what I can tell it looks easier to get a SGC than a FAC and the police are more likely to grant a FAC airgun than a .22lr for example. Ideally I think a .22lr would be the best solution for what I need but I didn't know how likely that was to get granted. What do you think is the best approach? Thanks, Mark
  11. Are you from Scotland and enjoy spending time in the countryside? Then you could help me with my dissertation by filling out this survey! The survey is completely anonymous and should only take a few minutes of your time. The aim of the study is to find out Scottish people’s attitudes towards wolves and any groups of people that may conflict with wolves if they were released into the Scottish countryside. The study is purely hypothetical and is not related to any real wolf reintroduction project but aims to investigate this relatively new area of discussion. I am myself not for or against the reintroduction of wolves to Scotland, this is just an area of interest with relatively little recent research. Thank you for any replies. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=-rKZc65vv0mnaFhQugcXP4hCSKZq3-pDkKNgciG031JUNkw3R1JXRUZZSEM2QzMzNEJOVVZOWkRZVi4u
