Vermin control is an important part of countryside land management. The humble Fox is a deadly and cunning predator, for many breeds of wild game. Indeed, to successfully rear game birds it is crucial to control fox numbers. On our own farm I like to think, we have helped increase the numbers of wild game birds by controlling the number of foxes and the most efficient way is night time rifle shooting.
Working in the gunroom for many years I have heard lots of customers stories of great days shooting and each individuals favourite quarry. The customers who have shot driven grouse seem to rate it the highest over all other forms of game shooting, which until recently I had never experienced myself. In September I was kindly asked on a days driven Grouse shooting as a guest of Hull Cartridge Company: this was one day I was definitely going to remember.
