Hunters and shoot­ers must work to­gether

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

HUNT­ING has faced sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenges in re­cent years, but there is one is­sue that is rarely spo­ken about, yet it gets worse each year. This threat to the very ex­is­tence of some packs comes from a group very close to home—the shoot­ing fra­ter­nity, many of whom don’t al­low hunt­ing across their land dur­ing the sea­son. My plea to all shoots is to think be­fore you say no to your lo­cal hunt as, if ev­ery­one does, we will start to see packs fold­ing, not be­cause of an­tis or leg­is­la­tion, but be­cause the shoot­ing and hunt­ing com­mu­ni­ties aren’t work­ing to­gether.
