PLASTIC NOT FANTASTIC
The drive to reduce the use of plastic is to be applauded but perhaps we ought to look at our own backyard. Isn’t it time that paper shotgun cartridges became the norm again, with manufacturers offering mainstream loads in decent waterproof cases? I am sure that the technology must have improved since my youth, when a hand extractor was essential equipment.
My fellow foresters could look at the amount of plastic used in tree shelters. There isn’t such an easy choice here but a bolt-action rifle and box of bullets is an acceptable alternative in many cases. Mark Crichton Maitland Houston, Renfrewshire
