January marks a pivotal moment for shooting enthusiasts, whether their heart lies on the serene grouse moors or they thrive on the challenge of targeting high-flying pheasants. It’s a time when we naturally turn our focus inward, contemplating how we can elevate our game for the impending year.

At this juncture, our attention now shifts towards acknowledging triumphs, commending the dedication of gamekeepers, relishing one last exhilarating shoot at a cherished estate, and carefully storing away our technical tweeds. An integral part of this process involves scheduling that all-important gun service, ensuring our firearms are in impeccable condition for hibernation until the next season unfolds.

During the interim between seasons, shooting estates embark on their own introspective journey. They assess landscape maintenance, implement improvements, rear young birds, and engage in dedicated conservation efforts. This transitional period also presents an excellent opportunity to refine one’s shooting technique, with a great opportunity for a leisurely outing to try one’s hand at clay shooting.

Yet, before fully immersing ourselves in these preparations, there remains a final weekend beckoning us to the field. Here’s to hoping for a resolute and adventurous conclusion to the shooting season, carrying that same bold and courageous spirit forward into the promising year ahead.
