Guns, beaters and pickers all play a major part on a shoot day. I’m sure you’ll agree that regardless of the size of bag the common theme which bonds us together is the sense of community and comradeship. I’ve noticed that one of the elements which has united us throughout the season is the warmth of homemade food and liquid refreshment. Food can be a powerful tool in bringing a community together and it's definitely helped shape my experience in the field. It has opened a variety of doors and led my taste buds down many avenues of mouth watering delights!
It can be difficult not to share when these two look up at you!
As a novice sloe-gin maker I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the hip flask this season. I love this fruity spirit as a winter warmer and I can see why it's a popular home grown British favourite.
Keen beater, Victoria, made a traditional Victoria sponge.
I loved the festive period as it gave us the opportunity to try one of the gun’s delicious home made mixed game pies. Trevor enjoys trying out new game recipes.
There has been a variety of tempting season’s eatings which have been shared and enjoyed by all, making the day more relaxed and sociable.
