Fieldsports Britain – Alex Hogg, Scottish Gamekeepers Association

It’s the man who wants buzzards back on the vermin list. In this week’s programme, Alex Hogg, chairman of the Scottish Gamekeepers Association, talks about that as well as the Wildlife & Natural Environment Bill which is due to be debated by the Scottish Parliament. Why does the Scottish Government hate deer, snaring and muir burn? Will they really classify pheasants as an “invasive non-native species”? What changes are proposed to the game laws and will they include the spectre of licensing shooters? How were terriers were saved during the hunting ban in Scotland? And how does a charming old fashioned gamekeeper like Alex cope with the dark corridors of Holyrood?
