Shooting for the Future: Shoot Management

Location: Allerton Project, Loddington
Date / Time: 25 April 2014

Recent GWCT research has allowed us to develop guidelines for gamebird release that maximise broader conservation benefit, while minimising any damage caused by the birds themselves. By following these prescriptions shoots also maximise the health and welfare of their pheasants and partridges, thereby ensuring good returns and high-quality sport. Improving woodland and cover crop habitat for pheasants and partridges can make a big difference to the results obtained by a shoot. There is also great potential for improving conservation value to a broad range of other wildlife. All of these issues will be addressed during the morning presentations, and this will be followed by an in-depth afternoon visit to a working shoot, to set the full context.  Read more
