"The Dromia Rule"

Deer Stalking… reliable word of mouth recommendation from someone you know has undertaken such stalking being offered by a specific syndicate is best. Like other walks of life, stalking has its scammers. E.G., make sure there is deer, of the species sought, on the land being made available; that appropriate insurance is in place; that there is recourse for recompense if it all goes wrong. In addition, obtain and understand terms and conditions; consider the implications of allowing a syndicate leader to be a FAC mentor; make sure ‘coaches’ are suitably qualified; consider the quality of deer management, the construction & execution of a shooting plan and safety; determine if the land is over-shot.

If in doubt, contact BASC or similar.

Anyone considered to be a scammer will be banned without warning.

Tomorrow is the start of the grouse season, also called the Glorious Twelfth.
The grouse season is super important for the management of moorland as it generates valuable income.

Good article explaining it a lot better than I can.

Chris Packham, Ruth Tingay and Mark Avery - bad for society.

Agreed, until you actually Witness the conservation and good done on the moors in PERSON it is a non starting debate for me.

Too many armchair “packhams” about.

The Government thought the same when taking the petition on board, Defra was given the green light to continue with the excellent management system they have in place run by many very skilled game keepers and similar within the countryside.

There are a lot of people who will never be convinced that rearing and shooting birds for fun and profit is acceptable.

They are Grouse, they are not reared.

Another reason why your argument is a non starter, you clearly have no grasp on what is actually happening.

However I do understand you don’t want to kill things, that is a separate issue which no amount of conservation is going to convince you.

Just out of curiosity are you vegan?

Who's arguing? It's a simple difference of views.
