FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Shooting Gazette - - Welcome - Mar­tin Pud­difer, ed­i­tor

Much as we’d like to we can’t be out in the field all of the time and if you’re in the same boat fear not, there’s plenty to get your teeth stuck into in this month’s is­sue of Shoot­ing Gazette.

We have shoot re­ports from Kedle­ston in Der­byshire, a shoot that has come on leaps and bounds since a new team took it on last year; there’s also Cricket St. Thomas, a shoot where the birds will, if you will ex­cuse the pun, hit Guns for six over some crack­ing ground in Som­er­set.

Else­where in this is­sue, David Whitby is ex­am­in­ing what Guns on the ground should be think­ing about when rais­ing their bar­rels – or not as the case may be – to beau­ti­fully pre­sented high birds. What is too high in your book? Mean­while, The Back Gun is pon­der­ing our re­la­tion­ship with the an­i­mal king­dom while John Clements presents a thought-pro­vok­ing in­sight into how shoot­ing ter­mi­nol­ogy en­riches us – and can even get us into the odd jam when shared with the out­side world.

There are also re­views of the Rizzini RBEM de Luxe and Toy­ota Land Cruiser In­vin­ci­ble, in­ter­views with gun­maker Carl Rus­sell and Lord Forester from the Willey Park Shoot in Som­er­set. Add this to page af­ter page of com­ment and ad­vice on ev­ery­thing from batty gun­dogs to pi­geon mi­gra­tions – there’s even room for ad­vice on which whisky is right for your post-shoot re­fresh­ments – and there’s more than enough to see you through un­til De­cem­ber. We are hav­ing a great sea­son so far and hope you can say the same. En­joy the is­sue.
