The Moorlands

Moorland managed for grouse shooting delivers a vast array of benefits for wildlife, marginal communities, the rural economy and the wider upland landscape, while facilitating the harvest of a completely wild, healthy and nutritious food source.

The grouse shooting season starts on 12 August (often referred to as the ‘Glorious Twelfth’) and finishes on 10 December.

“The management of upland areas for grouse shooting plays a crucial role in preserving and enhancing a beautiful and rare ecosystem while providing vital economic support for rural communities. Without grouse shooting, this custodianship would disappear.“

Murray Woodward, Game and Gamekeeping Officer.
