This year, we want to set the record straight on grouse. Together, we can dispel the myths about grouse moor management and bring the truth to the fore.
Now is the time for #NoMoorMyths
*Information from Value of Shooting report
A report by the University of Northampton has found that driven grouse shooting offers a sustainable approach to maintaining the UK’s uplands.
Last year saw BASC promote the conservation credentials and wider benefits of grouse moors to the UK through a major media campaign.
Using key newspaper publications in areas where grouse moors are a central part of the local fabric, we spread the word about the value of grouse shooting to the local community, economy and wildlife. Read more about the campaign here.
BASC Simply Glorious! adverts were featured in the following publications:
Grouse shooting takes place on moorland as far south as Wales and Derbyshire and as far north as the Highlands of Scotland.
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.
