How can I get into wildfowling?

Starting out isn’t as difficult as you might imagine.

Wildfowling is a Marmite sport. You’ll either love it or hate it, but it is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. The beautiful sunrises and the myriad waterfowl make up for the small bag sizes.

The BASC Wildfowling Permit Scheme booklet is produced every year and has details from clubs across the country who joined an initiative to get more people out on the foreshore.

There are permits available from as little as £10 and a member of the club will accompany you to ensure you have the best possible introduction and, most importantly, stay safe.

BASC also runs Introduction to Wildfowling Days with a few clubs around the country.

Check out the BASC wildfowling page for more details, or give the department a call to register your interest on 01244 573 011.
