The Field

Dec 01 2020
Magazine

Published by Time Inc. (UK) Ltd The Field is a monthly glossy magazine dedicated to those brave souls who shoot, fish and hunt way beyond the call of duty. Since 1853, its staff has selflessly brought its readers the cream of rural life, be it pheasant shooting, dry-fly fishing or the distinct merits of Cheval Blanc. If you love field sports, errant terriers and very foxy friends at hunt balls, The Field is for you.

A jolly sporting pair • Neil and Serena Cross, our new columnist couple, may not be spending Christmas on the same continent but they will still be enjoying their festivities in the field

Reasons to be cheerful • Granted, Christmas is going to look a little different this year – and Eve Jones is worried that the rule of six could leave her out in the cold

Snow wonder • No sportsman wishes for too stifling a shroud of inclement weather but when the snow does fall deep and crisp and even, sporting landscapes take on a stark loveliness

Holkham, Norfolk • With an invitation from the Hon Rupert Coke and an experienced muzzleloader standing by, nine guns experienced the thrill of a black-powder day

Game register of a gamekeeper, 1937-71 • Chris Oliver was a gamekeeper on Lilburn Estate in Northumberland for 34 years. His gamebook is an intriguing record of a sporting life

The proper balance of a sporting gun • An unusual item discovered in the Long Room at James Purdey & Sons demonstrates not only gun balance but the firm’s professionalism

The Percy: hunting as it should be • As Old English hounds cross this stunning country, community is as much a part of a day in Northumberland as the unceasing sport

Fly-f ishing adventures in Chilean Patagonia • Wild places, pristine waters and plentiful trout are the hallmarks of a trip to this South American rainforest – with a touch of luxury to bookend the day

Geese at first light or on a moon-flight • Morning flight is the surest source of spectacle for a wildfowler but a moonlit night can offer a touch of magic

Air rifles primed to keep pests at bay • Airguns and air rifles are ideal for ‘garden work’ and as a first weapon for young guns. What should you look for?

WRITER’S PICK

Christmas un-hampered • The Field picks the best hampers to send to family, friends or simply oneself – and treats to take, too, if visiting
