The BASC pigeon shooting team is comprised of members of BASC staff from different departments, all of whom share a passion for pigeon shooting. As well as offering a useful point of contact for help and guidance, this team also works hard to maintain the general licence structure.
We can provide advice and guidance on:
- Gaining permission
- Risk assessments / health & safety
- General licence issues
- Shooting on designated land such as SSSIs
