Shooting Gazette May 2015

We might be a few months away from the next game season but that doesn’t mean you can’t get out there and pull the trigger. In the May issue of Shooting Gazette we feature 15 of the country’s best shooting grounds where you can go and have a blast! And at this time of year there are plenty of other things happening in the world of game shooting and the range of reviews, interviews and features in this issue is so broad you’ll need binoculars to see one end from the other.
