Shooting Gazette February 2016

The 2015/2016 driven shooting season is coming to a close, and it’s nearly that time of year when we are only able to reflect on its passing through photographs, stories in our game books and memories etched in our minds for a lifetime. There will still be plenty of shooting to be had in February – don’t forget the woodies and the deer – and we haven’t taken our finger off the trigger in our endeavours to bring you the best our sport has to offer either, as this wonderful selection shows…
