Half a million set to join shoots on last day of pheasant and partridge seasons

This Is Wiltshire: Tomorrow is the last day of the pheasant and partridge seasons Tomorrow is the last day of the pheasant and partridge seasons

Half a million people are expected to join shoots on the last day of the pheasant and partridge seasons tomorrow, says the Countryside Alliance. 

Record numbers are expected to take advantage of the final day of the pheasant and partridge seasons.

The last day of the season is the beaters’ day on many shoots, when those people who have worked throughout the season take their turn with a gun.

An estimated 25,000 shoots will take place around the country, with as many as 500,000 people - 200,000 guns and another 300,000 family and friends - getting involved and enjoying a day outside.

The Countryside Alliance says shooting plays a vital part in rural Britain, is worth more than £1.6 billion to the UK economy and supports 70,000 full-time jobs.

Barney White-Spunner, Countryside Alliance executive chairman, said: “Having so many people going out shooting on the final day of the season is a true success story, showing that support for shooting is stronger than ever.

“Come rain or shine, around half a million people will be enjoying the last day of the season in traditional style.”

The Countryside Alliances says there are record sales of wild game in supermarkets this season. It has been reported that sales of rabbit are up 20 per cent in a year at Marks & Spencer and pheasant sales are up 30 per cent, while partridge sales have increased by 234 per cent.

Waitrose has said that its venison sales were up by 92 per cent year-on-year.

Killing birds for fun. How wonderful. The same organisation that enjoys killing foxes, deer, badgers, hares etc. How lovely. Tally ho!

"Killing birds for fun. How wonderful"

Killing birds for retail sale, lets not let emotion get in the way of the truth.

It has been reported that sales of rabbit are up 20 per cent in a year at Marks & Spencer and pheasant sales are up 30 per cent, while partridge sales have increased by 234 per cent.

Whether you like it or not, all meat for sale was a live animal at one point and if you look at the quality of life of those animals, these birds have been much better looked after than any factory reared chickens that many will be sat down to for this Sundays dinner.

Some are. Not all though. They are ALL killed for the person with the gun's pleasure regardless of whether they end up on the table or not.
That doesn't sit well with me. Getting pleasure from killing a living creature.

............and yet ( assuming you are not a vegitarian ), you no doubt enjoy tucking into a dead animal for sunday lunch ( other mealtimes are available! )
Hmmm......you don't get pleasure from the killing, but you do from the eating.......all a little bit hypocritical from a (assumed) carnivore, in my opinion

I have to wonder if what is actually not sitting well with you, and your real issue here, is not so much the killing, but the class of person you perceive to be doing the killing?

The Countryside Alliance are full of sheet....500,000 people shooting on the last day of the season?!?! That is as many people who watch football every week in the top 4 divisions. Can anybody out there in the Country Alliance provide any evidence that that many people go shooting? The Countryside Alliance seem to think that what they support and do are massively popular in all walks of life, 500,000 people in the inner cities of our country would love to sit in the country smoking crack and playing loud music but they don't because it is ILLEGAL and ENFORCED. 500,000 people in the country love chasing things and killing them with dogs but they SHOULDN'T because it is ILLEGAL and NOT ENFORCED. Comments please.

Davey,

Quite frankly what a 'Plonker' as an ecologist and environmentalist myself there is nothing wrong with hunting and shooting provided it is sustainable and the animals used for food etc. Since many of these are introduced and non native they are fair game. tasty also.

beach1e - what a misguided, sad creature you are. I live in the country and like to partake in the rural sport of pheasant shooting. Every bird I have ever shot has been eaten either by my family, my friends or diners at the local restaurant. I'n the course of my work i've visited many abattoirs and witnessed the most appalling animal suffering which is allowable under UK laws. I know where I'd rather source my meat from.

I would guess because most of those in Iraq/Afghanistan can shoot back and the animals cant and are just innocent victims? As with a few here its the arrogant pleasure that these cowardly morons get that i hate, I bet if the birds could shoot back they would think twice! As an anti gun culture, I wonder just how many out there actually have guns, legally or illegally, I bet the true numbers would shock.

I don't think anyone would disagree with that, but for me the shooting of animals for food should be from necessity not pleasure. This isn't so much about the animals as those doing the killing.

What sort of person actually enjoys killing defenceless creatures as so many of these people do and then has the nerve to call it a sport? Or uses the excuse that they are basically doing the animals a favour because battery farming is so much worse! What a hero with his big gun shooting down a defenceless animal, not much different to the attitudes of the school bully really and the same mentality.

I totally disagee with breeding and killing any animal for human consumption/pleasure
. But I can say this because I dont eat meat - if you eat meat then spout on about how bad shooting is you need to address your own morals. I have a horse on a farm that has a shoot a few times a year and I make sure Im no where near the place while its going on - the same as i would go nowhere near a slaughter house. Its all disgusting to me - but if i had the choice I'd rather be the pheasant than the pig smelling death and seeing other pigs being cut open while alive and yet have no escape!

Despite these birds being bred for a sport, they do have a much better life of living on the land with access to high quality feed. As opposed to the majority of the chickens that will be consumed this Sunday. Pumped full of chemicals to ensure they grow at a much fater rate, killed in an awful manor - just another product of a fast food generation.
I suspect that none of the anti-shooting posts above come from a vegan or vegie and more likely from people who wouldn't think twice about eating a McDonalds or the like - the a** end of society, likely on benefits eating the a** end of the processed food chain.
The birds are shot, dead, it's not a long painful drawnout death.
In addition to the life the birds do get to live, the game keepers, under keepers, guns and beaters do an awful lot to look after the land that they shoot over - again unlike most of the city dwellers who assume they have a right to the green space around them.

Davey,

Quite frankly what a 'Plonker' as an ecologist and environmentalist myself there is nothing wrong with hunting and shooting provided it is sustainable and the animals used for food etc. Since many of these are introduced and non native they are fair game. tasty also.
Please know your stuff before running your mouth

Absolutely bang on. It matters not if they are refuse collectors, tax inspectors, doctors or "ecologists". They hunt because they enjoy it.

Note how childish the pro shooting brigade are with their hollow nothing arguments.
The countryside alliance have just dressed it up, like they did hunting with dogs.
Fortunately the majority of the public are not stupid enough to swallow their **** and hopefully it will be banned once the Tories get the boot.
Killing animals for pleasure is sick and anyone who enjoys it shouldn't be allowed a gun.

As someone has mentioned, perhaps those appalled at the shooting of reared birds take yourselves off to an abattoir for a few hours or as long as you can stomach what's going on, and I say give yourselves this treat as someone who spent eight years in the meat trade and saw this on a very regular basis, even I stopped eating meat for a couple of years, and remember this is legal, birds being shot for the table will become the way of choice to go after your visit.

Ah but Davey - lets hope the Gravey isn't made with meat extract! - there is just a minor flaw in your cunning plan - Ed Balls-up & co. won't be kicking the Tories out!

The archetypal socialist: I really care about you... until you do something, anything, I don't happen to like and agree with, in which case you're evil and it must be banned.

You must not have been following the national news this week, Davey. The economy is on the up and Labour have been made to look complete fools. It not seems highly unlikely that the hapless Balls & Miliband team of ex-Gordon Brown lackeys will get anywhere near Number 10.

Happy days indeed.

I don't think anyone would disagree with that, but for me the shooting of animals for food should be from necessity not pleasure. This isn't so much about the animals as those doing the killing.

What sort of person actually enjoys killing defenceless creatures as so many of these people do and then has the nerve to call it a sport? Or uses the excuse that they are basically doing the animals a favour because battery farming is so much worse! What a hero with his big gun shooting down a defenceless animal, not much different to the attitudes of the school bully really and the same mentality.
So how do we get to eat them if someone hasn't killed them, or are we supposed to eat them alive?

Hunting and killing for sport !.Killing animals for fun! Senceless Roadkills!To my mind leads to one thing and that is any person that agrees or does this Has no compassion for wild life just an excuse to kill helpless animals.
Years ago it was a way of living People didnt have shops or much money and Only killed an animal to feed their family . Not to store in their freezers or to kill for the sake of it Now known as Fun-Sport!
A traverller I met Had a dead rabbit when i ask if he killed it He said No it was a road-kill so instead of cars running over it he picked it up to feed himself an his dog. This sort of person i can understand ( even tho i do-not eat meat) But to make money or to kill for fun shows the children of our fulture nothing .A young boy i knew got paid for killing fox's on farm land He an his friends not only killed a vixon but her new born cubs and then throw them away like rubbish He called it Fun.. This is what our country an other are showing how you deal with animals.You call them vermin. We call them part of our wildlife.Beauitful animal that has the right to live in the same way as you want your family to live ! peace and respect and maybe with a bit more understanding on now most of their lands has been taken How hard they now find to live and feed their young family,

I am not keen on the Countryside Alliance and dead against hunting with dogs but have no problem with shooting stuff so long as it gets eaten. We are after all carnivores and they do taste good.
Why is it that anything to do with the treatment of animals gets such a large response in the comments section but when people are getting slaughtered in conflicts, killed in natural disasters or flooded out of their homes there are next to no comments....

Oh House on the Hill please don't make assumptions - I'm a 32 year old female! And I'd much rather eat something that until I shot it was enjoying its freedom to roam. I don't find meat from animals that have travelled many miles to an abattoir, been made to queue with its frightened bawling 'friends' and then shot through the head with a bolt gun very appetising.

Providing the birds are eaten I don't see a problem in it. I have great pleasure in eating a pheasant what has been free range and brought up on good food. Much better than eating a chicken what hasn't seen natural day light and squished in pen.

Where I live ,,the farmer caught me walking through ancient lane between his fields,and ordered me out,,stating that he has thousands of pheasants half a mile away,,and that I was in danger of being accidentally shot by his gamekeeper
So the gamekeeper cant tell the difference in size and shape of a human and pheasant
is this the kind of person allowed to carry a gun??
