The Game & Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Trust (GWCT) is giv­ing one lucky per­son a day’s driven grouse shoot­ing for eight peo­ple at Mar es­tate in the Cairn­gorms. Tick­ets to en­ter the prize draw cost £40 for a book of 20 and you can en­ter at­draw. The draw is on 10 De­cem­ber, with pro­ceeds sup­port­ing the work of the GWCT.


The Coun­try­side Al­liance (CA) has launched a new pod­cast se­ries called Voice of the Coun­try­side, hosted by head of shoot­ing Liam Stokes and press of­fi­cer Rachel Smed­ley. Each episode will delve into top­i­cal ru­ral is­sues, with anal­y­sis from the CA team. Avail­able to down­load now on Sound­cloud or to lis­ten to online at­cast1.


It is hard for a film to evoke the beauty and unique ethos of shoot­ing grouse over HPRS, but Russell Hird’s new DVD does it bril­liantly. Shoot­ing Times’s Edi­tor Pa­trick Gal­braith has been lucky enough to shoot with Russell twice on Lewis and says the film took him right back to tramp­ing over those moors, which he counts among his hap­pi­est sport­ing mem­o­ries. Dog Days in the He­brides is a beau­ti­ful cel­e­bra­tion of the Lewis land­scape and should be on ev­ery Christ­mas list for those who love their sport truly wild. Avail­able to buy online at www.he­bridean­ for £15.99.
