NEWS

BDS SE Scotland branch clay pigeon shoot 

Pre-Covid 19, the SE Scotland branch had for a number of years held a clay pigeon shoot in early June at Lammerlaw Gun Club, near Edinburgh.

Branch Members Paul Crosbie and John Campbell-Smith decided to resurrect this event and a shoot was held on the evening of Tuesday 15 June 2022 and 19 guns shot.

The overall winner of a day’s sika hind stalking, kindly donated by, Ed Bewsher of Edinburgh Rifles and Sporting Goods was Iain Semple from the Central Scotland branch.

In second place was Paul Crosbie with Nick Morrall in third place.

Iain Semple also won the pool trap following an exciting shoot-off with Ed Bewsher.

Lammerlaw Gun Club must be thanked for their excellent hospitality as well as for running a very efficient and challenging shoot.

All being well, the intention is to hold this shoot again on the evening of Tuesday 6 June 2023. This date has already been booked with Lammerlaw Gun Club.

BDS Response to the Defra Consultation on Proposed Deer Management Strategy

The British Deer Society (BDS) has reviewed in detail the consultation on proposed deer management published by Defra on the 4th of August 2022. Whilst we welcome the consultation in general terms, and in particular the intent to develop a wider market for venison, we have serious concerns about some of the proposals.
