Cock pheasant on wall Martin Preston/BASC 2004A game management evening packed full of demonstrations and advice to help improve shoots will be held at Rectory Farm near Tingewick in Buckinghamshire on Thursday 8 May.

The evening, organised by the UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), will feature a guided tour of the shoot’s cover crops with Marc Bull of Kings Game Cover and Conservation Crops, a presentation of the Green Shoots Mapping tool by Ian Danby, BASC’S head of biodiversity projects as well as demonstrations and advice on pest control from the BASC game & gamekeeping department.
