The Field - - YOUNG IN THE FIELD -

Jon Ball “A con­sis­tent per­former re­gard­less of lo­ca­tion or con­di­tions.”

an­gus Barnes “The owner of the Loy­ton shoots port­fo­lio can show his clients how it’s done. High pheas­ants are his spe­cial­ity and he sel­dom misses even af­ter a late party.”

phil Blake­way “For­mer Glouces­ter rugby player who toured with the Bri­tish Lions, he is a qui­etly spo­ken, smil­ing, lethal shot.”

peter Brown “A whizz on tall birds with his pair of Ke­mens (and pretty sharp on the grouse, too). Sports a brown bowler hat un­less it’s par­tic­u­larly wet, when he sports a yel­low south­wester.”

James But­ler “When not host­ing days on his own shoot, his ex­tra­or­di­nary hand-to­eye co­or­di­na­tion means

‘Foz’ is al­ways men­tioned in

dis­patches when it comes to high birds.”

richard car­ing “Well dressed, the most amaz­ing host and a top shot on high birds us­ing his ti­ta­nium guns.”

si­mon ford “As good a high­pheas­ant shot as I’ve seen. He does miss – but not much.” His 4WD trans­forms into a mo­bile cham­pagne bar.

charles fussell “Con­sis­tent high-bird shot, which is truly re­mark­able given how long he stays up the night be­fore if there’s a sniff of a party.” henry Greswell Ju­lian hunnable

pa­trick James “Charms the ladies and the birds from the sky with equal panache.”

al­lan Jenk­in­son “A lovely, con­sis­tent shot at high pheas­ants but tries to pass the lime­light onto oth­ers. I saw him shoot 14 birds on the trot with ease and all were right up there.”

Bill Joyce

Dave kem­p­ley “Can still hold it with any­one in the coun­try on the re­ally high stuff. Shot some crack­ers at Bri­g­ands and Sweet Lamb this year. Mod­est and al­ways hav­ing a laugh.”

Jono mills “An­noy­ingly good de­spite spend­ing less days in

the field. The jury is still out on his lat­est gun­dog – a whip­pet.”

DAVID mor­ris “A rare an­i­mal: a high-bird spe­cial­ist who uses side-by sides.” nigel mustill

Dan reynolds “Sees the best shots in ac­tion on the Ex­moor shoots and ob­vi­ously learns a thing or two as he’s a master of the tall pheas­ant.”

Jack sadler Prefers to be work­ing his dog but when he is in the line it doesn’t mat­ter the di­rec­tion, speed or height of the bird – he’s on it. Got the shot of the day on a shoot in the mid­dle of the sea­son on some strato­spheric pheas­ants. alan smith John ward “A ge­nius shot and a great coach.”

kevin wis­sett-warner “Has shot out of his skin all sea­son with his Big Bertha.

Has a pen­chant for pi­geon and shoots some out­ra­geous ones on game days.”

Dave car­rie “Well tooled up with big bombs and long bar­rels. If you want to see how big ar­tillery brings down the high­est birds, he is the man to watch.”
