Scottish Association for Country Sports

The Scottish Association for Country Sports - SACS is Scotland and Northern Ireland’s largest shooting and country sports organisation with members across the UK. We are a grassroots representative body, standing up for the rights of ordinary shooters, anglers and hunters UK-wide.

Membership benefits include broad and strong fieldsports and shooting insurance for all forms of quarry and target shooting, as well as hunting or working gun dogs, feretting, falconry, fishing and many other related activities. Worldwide cover, gain up to £5,000 per annum (non-professional intent) and roadside humane dispatch are included for free for all members. And there are no policy excesses to be paid in the event of a claim.

But SACS is more than just shooting insurance. Whether you are a gameshooter, pigeon shooter, deer stalker, fox controller, ferreter, clay pigeon shooter, target shooter, angler, falconer or whatever your fieldsport, SACS is your UK-wide representative body.

SACS has a long history of personal member support and our successes are legendary. With strong relationships with licensing teams UK-wide, SACS is renowned for our expertise in firearms licensing matters.

SACS also joins BASC, NRA, HBSA, CPSA, CA and others on the principle UK firearms licensing and lobbying groups, such as British Shooting Sports Council and Firearms Licensing Practitioners Groups. SACS is a leading UK firearms advocacy body.
