Well, The first of the Game seasons if very fast approaching.

Is anyone here lucky enough to be shooting the humble but pricey Red Grouse?

I doubt I will be at all this year but I enjoy it immensely when I do.

Regards
SS :thumbs:

If only! Only been once as a guest on the Bowes Moore estate a few years ago. It was the year before the strongile work gave a lot of places a real hammering. Be good to hear how stocks are this year and with all this wet weather. :victory:

Later on in the season I get to carry my gun in the line, to help bulk bags, and to avoid leaving too many on the hill. Oh joy! :gunsmilie:
