The month of November represents the time of the year particularly awaited for lovers of this exciting form of hunting; "In jargon" for passionate "Beccacciai"! Knowing and working for the conservation of this fantastic and mysterious migratory bird has long been one of the characteristics that distinguish a large audience of hunters and researchers. In the height of the hunting season, we want to go back up a fundamental aspect for the maintenance of a hunting tradition among the most fascinating, namely that of research and monitoring of the species.
The experience gained for years in some Italian regions, first of all Tuscany, in many respects it represents an advanced point both as regards legislation and also for the activities carried out by specialized hunters outside the permitted hunting periods. It is therefore with pleasure that we want to highlight the publication of an important research developed by Dr. Marco Tuti, wildlife technician, researcher but above all a passionate hunter, engaged in these aspects for years.
An interesting study, developed in collaboration with other leading experts and researchers, which again highlights the demographic structure of the species and above all the good state of conservation of the woodcock population (Scolopax rusticola) and in a decade of observations 2010/2019. Significant data collected thanks to the analysis of the wings of the culled subjects and therefore of the game boxes, which make this work one of the most relevant experiences from a numerical point of view, developed in our country, highlighting once again how the active contribution of the hunting world for the collection of data is indispensable and fundamental for scientific research and for the monitoring and management of wildlife (Source: CCT).
