Pacec Value of Shooting Report

What does shooting bring to the UK?

According to the Public and Corporate Economic Consultants (PACEC) group's latest survey shooters spend an estimated 2.5 billion a year on goods and services. This produces a direct financial benefit to the UK - defined as gross value added (GvA) - of 2 billion a year.

In the UK as a whole shooting providers have management responsibilities over some 14 million hectares. That is about two-thirds of the total rural land mass. Within this area active shoot management - managing heather moorlands, and planting trees and hedgerows, for instance - is undertaken on nearly two million
hectares, which represents 12% of the uK's rural land.

This is more than ten times the total area of all national and local nature reserves. the largest area of land by far over which beneficial management takes place is heather moorland.
