SIR,—THE fol­low­ing fig­ures, as re­gards record bags of grouse, may be of in­ter­est. The great­est num­ber of grouse ever killed in one day is 2,929. This bag was ob­tained by eight guns on Au­gust 12th, 1915, on the Earl of Sefton’s Lit­tledale and Abbeystead beat, Lan­cashire. As re­gards in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances, Lord Wals­ing­ham shot 1,056 grouse to his own gun on his Blub­ber­houses Moor, York­shire, on Au­gust 30th, 1888. He shot four­teen birds in ad­di­tion to this to­tal, which rep­re­sents the ac­tual num­ber of driven birds killed by him.
