It is autumn again; my favourite time of the year – crisp, clear days with fire coloured leaves lit up against the bright blue sky; wood smoke in the air and scents of undergrowth, mushrooms and truffles at our feet.
And it’s the shooting season again; an excuse to spend long days in the open countryside whether in Scotland or in Belgium pursuing one of the oldest sports in the world.
The larders, cold rooms and deep freezers already filling up with plucked birds and ragout of rabbit.
To celebrate this season, we have once again created a Hunting Hamper.
This year we’ve added some useful shot glasses and building upon its successful launch last year, put in an extra bottle of Sloe Gin from the Wiltshire Liquor Company.
This makes a great case to have in the back of your car or a lovely present to give to your host to thank him for a great day’s shooting.
