In Britain, hunting is a subject which raises great emotions and passions, and it is for this precise reason that This is Hunting UK has been formed. There are many people living in a rural or urban world who believe that the legislation that was introduced to ban hunting was nothing but a vindictive attack on law-abiding citizens. It is for this very reason that we decided to come together and demonstrate why hunting is still and always will be such an important part of everyday rural life.
This is Hunting UK is a group of rural and urban people dedicated to promoting the conservation of cultural, social and financial benefits that hunting provides. We aim to give the public and other interested parties all the information they need to understand the matter further whilst proactively supporting other rural organisations and hunting associations.
We recognise that there are ever-increasing threats to this traditional activity brought about by the enactment of the Hunting Act 2004. Nevertheless, we continue to believe that by working as one, we get a positive message across and enlighten more people about our cause.
