Don’t miss this month
We love driven game shooting large and small here at Shooting
Gazette, and in this month’s issue we’re showing off what a shoot with its own castle and another with a huge heart can do in their respective efforts to show the best possible sport to visiting guests. John Walker is at Pentillie Castle in Cornwall, a magical shoot which has to be seen to be believed, while I am in Leicestershire, reporting from The Folly, run by a young man with a lot of ambition. Remember the name, folks... There’s more to putting on a field trial than you think, and that’s exactly what Amy Bates found out when she spoke to three key players charged with making sure everything run smoothly, fairly and successfully on their respective patches. The rewards will always outweigh the strains and stresses but there seems to be one overriding message from our experts: be prepared!
