Game generally refers to Hares, pheasants, partridges, and grouse. Game shooting has become increasingly popular in recent decades and can be enjoyed as walked up, rough, driven, wild and reared birds
Game shooting is an accessible sport, enjoyed by many thousands of people from all walks of life. No longer the preserve of the landed classes, it can provide a valuable bridge between town and country offering, on the one hand, recreation in the countryside and, on the other, economic benefits to help sustain a healthy rural community.
Land managed for Game shooting can provides huge benefits to the environment. It is a major resource in promoting bio-diversity and assisting the UK to achieve the targets set in national and local biodiversity action plans and BASC’s Green Shoots programme has been endorsed by Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage, Natural Resources Wales & the Northern Ireland Environment Agency.
Most importantly shooting provides something very special for the table. Game meat is natural, wild, healthy and utterly delicious.
