There’s a pheasant shooting film out on YouTube that has angered the rest of the UK shooting community. A couple of weeks ago [25 March 2020], a man from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire put up a film that he made about rough-shooting. He and his friends obviously had a lovely day out – but his video is a casebook of dangerous and illegal shooting. So, using it as a basis, and with the help of Tim Weston from the National Gamekeepers Organisation, here is our Code of Bad Shooting Practice.
▶ Here is the offending video
▶ Report wildlife crime in West Yorkshire here
