Damn that's stupid. Wwen I was a child in the late 60's we would occasionally get a programme on BBC, from Canada but can't remember what it was called, about forest rangers and their efforts to stop even small fires. Then about a decade later that was actually reference in a documentary where they were pointing out it was realised this allowed the build up of a lot of deadwood and meant that large, uncontrolled fires were inevitable eventually, so they were now moving to allow such small fires to prevent this.

Not into hunting myself and no real scope in Britain. It can, if done properly have some valuable benefits for the locals and local conservation but its also vulnerable to exploitation with important animals that should be protected being killed. The old problem of human corruptibility that always plagues us.
