BASC Launches iGamebook App

The British Association for Shooting and Conservation has launched the iGamebook app as part of the Gamebook programme. The app, which allows users to records a day’s shooting totals, also allows BASC to track numbers of species in different areas. The data will be used anonymously, and is intended to complement the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trusts’ National Gamebag Census, which collects shot game data from shoots.

Kate Ives of BASC’s research department, said, “For more than 70 years the GWCT¹s National Gamebag Census has provided unique insight into how wildlife populations change in response to land management as well as changes in shooting itself. The BASC Gamebook will also help to identify trends and ultimately help us protect your shooting so if you can help by taking part, please do. Many EU states have a mandatory requirement to record quarry data. The UK schemes are voluntary and the data they collect is enormously valuable in demonstrating the sustainability and responsibility of UK shooting. By using the online BASC Gamebook or the iGamebook, you can keep records of your shooting and at the same time know that you¹re helping to protect your sport.”

You can download the app at www.igamebook.co.uk or record bags at www.bascgamebook.org.uk.
