The Campaign for Shooting gives a clear political and public voice to the shooting community. Its objectives are clear: to secure and enhance the long-term sustainability of the sport, and its associated land management practices, and to manage and reduce political risk at local, national and devolved levels. The Campaign for Shooting safeguards the future of your sport.

  • Our new leaflet Campaign for Shooting 2019 -2020 provides information on the work of the campaign, and the many different forms and directions that attacks to shooting come. Whether promoting the enormous benefits of game shooting, or in dealing with the challenges that face us, we rely heavily on the support of our members, as without their support we could not be as effective as we are.
  • The Countryside Alliance’s leaflet on The value of grouse moor management explains the management processes, flora and fauna and individuals involved in the upkeep of our grouse moors, and the incredible conservation, economic and social importance of these unique habitats. Their careful management benefits a host of other bird species, including curlew, lapwing, golden plover, and merlin, and although it is the sale of shooting that helps offset the cost of their management, grouse moors are about far more than shooting - they are about whole communities in our uplands.
  • Read practical advice for shoot managers in our Saboteurs and Shooting leaflet.
  • The Countryside Alliance has produced a comprehensive Q&A briefing note on grouse shooting which was sent to MPs in Westminster before the start of the season. The briefing note, which provides a factual response to the 10 most frequently raised issues about grouse shooting and its associated moorland management, has also been sent to peers with an interest in shooting. Despite the considerable environmental, economic and social importance of grouse shooting, there is often a lot of misunderstanding about it, and the purpose of the briefing note is therefore to help MPs both when responding to any concerns which may be raised with them over the Summer, and to ensure that they do not take at face value the all too frequent unsubstantiated and intentionally misleading claims that are made by those who call for an end to grouse shooting, and shooting in general. All too often, these calls are made with no regard to the resultant consequences, which would be enormously damaging in environmental, social and economic terms. The briefing note can be read here.
