"Suddenly the air is filled with a hundred high-piping calls of weee-ooo. It’s intoxicating. These are wigeon – and fair game."

Wild Justice wants gamebird releasing near protected areas banned

The campaigners claim the annual release of 47 million pheasants and 10 million red-legged partridges is “unlawful” without a proper assessment of the ecological impacts the gamebirds have on Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) and Special Protection Areas (SPAs). Although birds are not allowed to be directly released on these areas without permission, they are allowed to be released nearby. Wild Justice’s Dr Mark Avery explained they are calling for a 5km buffer zone: “Pheasants...

Fieldsports Journal – Volume III Issue III

OUT NOW

At a time when global travel is placed on hold, allow the April/May 2020 issue of Fieldsports Journal – our fly fishing and travel special – to transport you to dreamy locations and offer an escape from self-isolation.

Guest Edited by Tarquin Millington-Drake, the Managing Director of specialist sporting travel company Frontiers and one of the most highly travelled sportsmen there is, we include exclusive articles on multiple destinations from Assynt in Scotland to the Ponoi River in Russia and untouched regions of the Colombian jungle.

“It was an honour to be invited to act as Guest Editor,” Tarquin writes in his foreword. “Such a project has led me to reflect on my years working in and enjoying the fieldsports world and to look at where we find ourselves today. In this issue, I have tried to celebrate our various sports whilst also educating and taking a look at ourselves. I would argue that there is no community more fond of the outdoors, nature, wildlife and animals and yet it cannot be denied that we are heavy users of carbon, the countryside, and natural ebbs and flows of wildlife. Our challenge over the next decade is to work out how we continue to enjoy what we do but not overstock, overuse or over pressure while also drastically reducing our carbon footprint and allowing our passions to pass on to younger generations.”

With reams of outstanding content including game shooting instructional pieces from top instructors Simon Ward and Adam Calvert, a dawn roebuck stalk with deer manager Chris Rogers, game recipes, ponderings on gundog field trials and sporting art, there’s much you will love in this issue.
