This issue is guest edited by Hugh van Cutsem, a renowned shot and countryman who hails from a hallowed dynasty known for exceptional prowess in the shooting line and being stalwarts of conservation. As chairman of the British Deer Society, Hugh is hell-bent on overhauling the image of Britain’s wild deer, plus he tells us how fieldsports are part of his genetic makeup and why his family tweed is camo. We visit an exemplary driven partridge shoot at Bowhill in Selkirkshire and interview front cover artist Kate MccGwire who uses 100,000 gamebird feathers a year to create her otherworldly sculptures. Sporting Historian David S.D. Jones looks back at how The Game Act 1831 was a such a game changer, James Percy examines why grouse fared so badly this year, and find out how General Gerald Trotter landed 29 salmon in one night in 1925 with just one arm. Staying with fishing, Lady Katie Percy discusses the pheromone phenomenon and how it has helped her to successfully land fish all over the world. Gundog trainer Ben Randall examines how we can all learn from each other on a shoot day and finally, it is Great British Game Week this November so there’s plenty of cookery content to drool over.
