Game Management
Game management and shooting in Scotland has a long and proud history. It continues to underpin habitat and conservation delivery across Scotland while providing vital employment and income into our rural communities and economy. It also provides a sustainable and healthy source of food through wise use and sustainable harvesting.

Game bird rearing and release is an essential component of game shooting in Scotland and it is vitally important that this is done to the appropriate standards and good practice. There has recently been consultation and guidance produced on this.  

Good practice is essential to the future sustainability of game shooting in Scotland and we would draw attention to the Code of Good Shooting Practice which is widely adhered to within the sector in Scotland.

In Scotland we work closely with the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust and the British Associations for Shooting and Conservation and where you can find more information.
