Volume II Issue VI

Fieldsports Journal Volume II Issue VI is out of stock for single issue sales.

The new game shooting season is almost upon us and the August/September issue of Fieldsports Journal looks ahead to the adrenaline-fuelled excitement that is grouse shooting. Inside we look at its history, Simon Ward gives advice on how to shoot your best from a butt and control the nerves, and a piece with three industry figures considers if our standards are high enough within the sport and assess what can be done to improve them.

With conservation a key focus of the issue too, we share the first instalment of a three-part series on grey partridge conservation on the Northumberland Estate, the results of the inaugural Holland & Holland Conservation Bursary Scheme, while Julia Stoddart assesses the term ‘Natural Capital’ and how it could affect fieldsports.

British broadcaster and journalist Jeremy Paxman also returns to look back at a former Foreign Secretary obsessed with fishing, and we have coverage on Goliath tiger fishing in Africa as well as rooster fish and mahi-mahi. Closer to home we have summer sea bass on the fly and mouth-watering recipes from chef Mike Robinson including sea trout sashimi. We also track the evolution of one of the greatest names in gunmaking – James Purdey & Sons – and share a detailed study on gundog vision.

Inside this issue you will find plenty of late-summer sport with rod and gun to kick off the new season.
