Prepare to succeed
I’m years.by thea keenI namewas hunter taughtof Peter and the Davies,have basics beena by frienda for wise manyof manmy father, who regarded preparation as the most important part of the hunting process. Peter always told me that I’d put more in the bag by being in the right place for an hour, than if I was in the wrong place all day. He was absolutely right, too, and although Peter’s been gone for almost ten years now, his teachings still form the foundation of my hunting.
Time spent finding feeding and drinking spots, roosting places, and areas where your quarry turns up on a regular basis, and just as importantly, when it turns up at all, is time well spent. In my experience, hunting trips are far more productive if they’re properly planned, so how about getting your hunting experts to teach the readers how to do this? Thanks for a brilliant magazine.

Preparation is key, says Dave Harris – and we agree with him!
