BASC backs shoot standards scheme

Steve Bloomfield

BASC has given its support to a British Game Alliance (BGA) initiative that aims to ensure high standards on shoots.

BASC was one of a number of rural organisations which met shoot owners and gamekeepers to discuss shoot management best practice with the BGA’s auditing partners Acoura.

Steve Bloomfield, BASC’s executive director of shooting and operations, said: “BASC supports the BGA in its mission to market game and give customer assurance to those buying game meat.

“BASC staff are working with the BGA to ensure that this initiative succeeds and is credible. BASC has been involved with BGA in conducting a shoot audit and believes that inspection systems, properly run and scrutinised, can support high standards on shoots supplying game to the market.”
