About the Wildfowling department

James Green Head of Wildfowling

James joined BASC as the South West regional officer in 2007 after spending 10 years in the building industry. Throughout this time James spent the majority of his free time learning his trade on the estuary chasing ducks and geese. It is fair to say that James is passionate countryman with a keen interest in many forms of country sports but wildfowling has always had a particularly strong hold. Probably due to the enthusiasm passed on by his dad Chris Green ‘the Cornish Countryman’, in fact James first joined his dad on the foreshore at just 4 years old. The wildfowling bug took hold and it excites him as much today as it did all those years ago.

James is delighted to be the head of the new wildfowling department and looks forward to working with clubs and organisations around the country in a bid to safeguard the sport for future generations.
