    Good luck with this…but beware of anyone suggesting quotas….thats the long term plan of the persecutors..basically..”youll get just the amount of wildlife in the scottish coiuntryside that we allow..”..Wildlife first, managed grouse moor second.

    Let’s just hope the real truth is told in a plain language that even the NGO can understand, the blarney, the rhetoric and the appeasement has gone on for far too long.
