Fieldsports Journal Issue IV · II

Guest edited by Michelin-starred game chef Tom Kitchin, this issue of Fieldsports Journal Vol IV Issue II lands at the end of the shooting season when the weather is at its worst and the nights are long and dark. There is a definite cookery theme to this issue, which will help you transform the game filling your freezer into restaurant-grade meals. The species focus is the common snipe, a diminutive long-billed wader that makes great eating and marshy sport. Chef Pierre Koffmann, Tom Kitchin’s original mentor, shows us how to prepare this delicious wader with a humble jacket potato.

The GWCT’s Dr Andrew Hoodless deep dives into the ecology of snipe and gives us tips on how we can all help conserve the species. Front cover artist Anna Clare Lees-Buckley shares her Damascene moment when she realised she was destined to paint gamebirds after decade of painting portraits. Plus Donald Dallas handles the world’s first ambidextrous shotgun - a beauty from Boss & Co. For those now swapping gun for rod, international fisherman Matt Harris gives us the definitive guide to salmon fishing in Norway. And finally there’s four pages of new products to lust over and another chance to take part in our reader survey.
