TOP TIPS

The Field - - Country Estate Sporting Diana -

Know your weapon. I worked in a hunt­ing shop for a few years and was sur­prised by how lit­tle peo­ple know about weapons and am­mu­ni­tion. For ex­am­ple, how im­por­tant it is to zero your ri­fle when you change ammo.

You need to be a great shot as you owe the an­i­mal a clean, quick death. Prac­tise in dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments and sim­u­late stalk­ing by shoot­ing with a beat­ing heart, run or jump a few times then shoot. Learn to know and con­trol your body and breath­ing.
