BASC North director Duncan Thomas today told listeners of Ribble FM that shooting sports were a great leveller and open to all.

Speaking on the radio station’s Farming and Countryside Matters programme, Mr Thomas spoke about the work and origins of BASC, his own background and the opportunities BASC provides to introduce people to shooting sports.

In the hour-long piece, Mr Thomas also spoke about conservation, Young Shots and ladies’ shooting, the social aspects of shooting sports, rural crime and the great taste of game meat.

He described his ideal Sunday lunch that includes game meat as pigeon flash fried in butter with chilli and garlic followed by venison Wellington with ‘slimline’ stuffing and pate inside the pastry.

Mr Thomas said: “I was absolutely delighted to go on air and tell the listeners of Ribble FM all about shooting and its huge array of environmental, social and economic benefits.

“The Ribble Valley is an amazing place and it was great to be able to have a hotline straight to the people who live and work there via the show.”
