Game meat is great, BASC tells local papers

BASC has highlighted the benefits of game shooting and game meat in a letter sent to all local newspapers in the UK.

The letter informs readers that October heralds the start of the pheasant shooting season. It lists some of the advantages of game meat and some of the conservation and economic benefits associated with sporting shooting.

Debbie Collins from BASC said: “Local newspapers have a very important role to play in relaying the benefits of shooting sports to their readers.  The aim of the letter is to point out that sporting shooting is good for the economy, good for conservation and that game meat is good to eat.”

Ian Grindy, chairman of BASC’s game shooting and game keeping committee, said: “Sending this letter extolling the virtues of game meat to local papers across the UK will hopefully highlight it to a wider audience and encourage more people to try it for themselves.”
