Letter: Debbie Collins October 10, 2017


October heralds the start of the pheasant shooting season.

As the season gets underway, there will be plenty of affordable, locally-sourced and delicious game meat available. Game meat is healthy, highly nutritious and delicious.

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), the UK’s largest shooting organisation, works all year round to encourage people to try game meat.

People who shoot spend 3.9 million work days on conservation each year – the equivalent of 16,000 full-time jobs. Shoot providers spend almost £250 million a year on conservation and shooting is involved in the management of two thirds of the UK’s rural land area.
