The Field - - Opening Shots Letters -

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
