This comprehensive and practical book, produced specifically for shoots and conservationists, provides a basic guide to all aspects of control. It explains which species can be controlled and by what means. There is detailed guidance on shooting, snaring, trapping, the use of dogs and humane dispatch. The law governing pest species is covered in detail, particularly in regard to the general licences which are frequently misunderstood, occasionally leading to prosecution. Detailed instructions are provided on the effective and legal use of snares and traps with photographic sequences to show how they should be sited and set. This will be invaluable to those who enforce wildlife law and need to distinguish between legal and illegal methods of control.
BASC Handbooks Pest & Predator Control is a useful addition in the popular series of BASC Guides. The British Association for Shooting and Conservation is the representative body for country shooting and one of the largest field sports organisations in Europe.
