Proposal to form the Argyll, Arran and Bute Game Preserving Association, 1920, page 1

Invitation to join the Argyll, Arran and Bute Game Preserving Association.

A reduction in grouse stocks meant that landowners faced problems letting their moors to shooting tenants. The proposed Association was to give more encouragement to gamekeepers, factors and other estate staff to tackle the problem of vermin.

Estates were requested to make a monthly return of vermin killed which would be published in a report. It was hoped that this would promote competition amongst gamekeepers and draw attention to estates where no action was taken
