The Field

Sep 01 2021
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.

You could see the beaters far distant on top of the next hill. They were sending the grouse flying slightly uphill towards the Guns. • The first challenge for this party of lucky Guns from Essex – who had won the day in a GWCT raffle – was to stomp up to their butts, where glorious views and testing birds awaited

Ladies seize the day at Belvoir • With a stunning backdrop, birds galore and their menfolk to load, last season got off to an epic start for one team of lady Guns, despite the pandemic

Taking a shine to stock finishing • Stock-finisher Shane Scase has built a reputation for his oil finishes that belies his years – though his ‘recipe’ is a closely guarded secret

CRACKING WALNUT

The perfect dog for partridges • For wild greys and redlegs, you need a worker that’s keen, thorough and won’t mind the brambles. So which to go for?

To the hill once again • The clarion call has sounded and it is time to set your sights on the ultimate modern sporting challenge

ANOTHER MAC-CHALLENGE

The dawning of a new season • Autumn hunting’s smaller fields provide the perfect chance to get close to hounds – if you can stand the early starts

A different coarse of action • Victorian gentlemen turned their noses up at coarse fish. But there is much excitement to be had fishing for pike, chub and dace on the fly

Haunch cuisine • Venison is one of our most sustainable and versatile wild meats, as these recipes highlighting the different species prove

Turning heritage fruit into eau-de-vie • HRH The Prince of Wales’s private orchard offers sanctuary to many heirloom fruit trees – which can now be enjoyed as a heritage brandy

The changing years of J K Stanford • Ornithologist, sportsman and Field correspondent, he was also a conservationist, whose pragmatic approach is still relevant...
