It’s August, and you know what that means. After what seems an eternity, the Glorious Twelfth, the start of the grouse shooting season, edges ever closer. Excited? You should be, and not just because you could be on the moor within days. Even if grouse isn’t on your radar, by now most of you will have started to practise at the clay ground, be well on the way to ironing out your dog’s odd habits or had to seriously start thinking about booking that hotel for the syndicate’s shooting trip. As in booking it this week. Stuck or ideas, in need of advice? Never fear, Shooting Gazette is here…
