"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

PRE-ORDER NOW

Guest edited by former Defra minister Rt Hon. Richard Benyon, the latest issue of Fieldsports Journal packs a political punch. A gifted communicator, Richard is able to distil complex ecological issues into discernible language that makes sense to us all. His message is simple: It is time to tell our story. His issue features an exclusive interview with Secretary of State, Rt Hon. George Eustice MP which offers fascinating insight into what the Government really thinks about fieldsports.

This issue also features part two of BBC Wildlife presenter Chris Packham CBE’s polarising editorial on shooting – this time focussing on the release of gamebirds and pheasant shooting.

Aside from politics, there is a Macnab theme running throughout the issue as Richard Benyon (who has bagged six altogether) shares his thoughts on the challenge. After 11 attempts, Simon K. Barr finally bags his own in Caithness. Together with jaw-dropping photography, read all about his decade-long journey to eventual success.

This season will be unlike any other but that’s no reason not to be smartly turned out like usual. So we have included five pages of brand new attire and accessories to drool over. George Digweed MBE also shares his thoughts on post-pandemic shooting, and how we will all have to adapt while in the field altogether.

For those craving escapism, there’s a thrilling feature on Giant Trevally fishing in the Seychelles – the group land 125 GTs in one week!

And the result you have all been waiting for, we finally announce the winners of the Swarovski Fieldsports Photographer of the Year competition. The winning image will make the hairs on your arms stand on end – well it certainly did for the judges.
