There’s something of interest for everyone in this month’s issue, says the editor
I t’s been my plan all along as editor of this magazine to try to add as much variety as possible in the hope that there will always be something of interest for every reader. In this quest, I’ve been hugely grateful to my brilliant contributors who deliver fascinating articles on all sort of subjects that I would never have conceived
Gary (p17) brings us a report on his chosen sport, hunter field target, but the real message is just how airgun sport can help others, something I know he truly cares about. It also touches on a delicate topic that we’ve mentioned before, which is mental health issues and I know many of you have been touched by this, so I’m sure his story will have deep meaning for many.
This month, Jamie (p28) had me crying with laughter because of the story he wrote about coming oh- so- close to losing a major hunting permission. Every word is true, yet I was staggered that Jamie’s client had said such obviously inflammatory things to the landowner and refused to see that he’d said anything wrong.
Charlie (p36) has brought us another of his in- depth articles on understanding our beloved countryside, and how the end of the day needs to be handled from the hunter’s perspective. I’ve been hunting close to 40 years, but it gave me plenty to think about, all the same.
I love to keep on learning and I’m sure you do too, so read on and I hope you find lots to enjoy. Ed.
