Range Practice Days
 
The deer sector is under continual scrutiny these days with the competence of practitioners under the spotlight.
 
As a result Central Branch committee has decided to apply a more practical slant to our Range Days.  There will be, as usual, the opportunity to check and adjust your rifle zero.  In addition other disciplines can be tried with our Range Officers helping you to practise the techniques you use in the field.
 
The dates and venues are as follows:
 
Sunday April 22nd  - Balmano, Bridge of Earn: MR 58.145.155.  Meet in farm yard at 9.30am
Location will be arrowed from the A912 at Aberargie.
 
Sunday May 20th - Cults, by Cupar  MR 59.344.085.  Meet at 9.30 for 10.00.
Location will be arrowed from the A914 Cupar-Pitlessie road.
 
Sunday August 5th - Jubilee Range, Glen Tilt, Blair Atholl:  MR 43.878.698: Meet 9.30 for 10.00
Location will be arrowed from B8079 in Blair Atholl (opposite the Tilt Hotel)
 
In addition we are hoping to have a Range Day in Glen Clova in June.  Full details to follow.
 
We hope to organise other activities to keep you amused when not on the Range!!
 
We encourage all members who actively manage deer to join us for at least one of these days.  Let us demonstrate to the 'powers that be' that we take our practices seriously.
