The Field

Oct 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.

The Field • ESTABLISHED 1853 VOL 338 NO 7406

Sense and sentience • The Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill could place a vehicle for the animal-rights movement at the heart of government. Be ready to act, says Tim Bonner, chief executive of the Countryside Alliance

Social spotlight

Best model for upland management

Who’s eager for beavers?

One good deed…

FIELD CHAMPIONS

BRIEFING

To do this month

Why estates should prepare for climate change

A haven for Devon’s ducks

T20 Cricket World Cup • UAE, 17 OCTOBER TO 14 NOVEMBER 2021

Kit to covert • Our monthly guide to everything notable in the field for sporting enthusiasts and those keen on country life

Letters

Capital punishment • So, are we tired of life – or just the restrictions of a Covid-hit city, wonders Rupert Bates, as house buyers continue to cancel the season ticket for a taste of country living

Country estate of the month • MOREFIELD ESTATE, ULLAPOOL, WESTER ROSS

Six of the best: Berkshire & Oxfordshire

A time to head north • As autumn turns the rowan berries red and the butts white, Neil Cross is once again tempted by the stags while Serena Cross finds the grouse moor changed and the birds challenging

Subscribe to THE FIELD from just 20.99

Wine and sport came together as the beaters carefully blanked in the vineyard slopes, pushing the birds forward into a broad, grassy valley Tuffon Hall Halstead, Essex • A mosaic of carefully planned cover crops has created a testing partridge shoot as well as garnering a conservation award – and the birds here are not the only thing to fizz

To have and to hold – safely • No one enjoys staring down the barrels of a gun, so adopt best practice when it comes to carrying yours, whether or not it is loaded

Staring down the barrel of a gun • Don’t be distracted by the decoration – when choosing a new shotgun, barrel construction should be a top priority, too

A fair leather friend • The combination of leather and the latest technology has created boots that are the perfect companion for any shoot day

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Caring for Old Faithful • Buying sustainably is good for both planet and pocket – and it creates a bond with your clothing that fast-fashion aficionados could never understand

Young Guns • Get them off to a good start with kit to suit the smalls keen to join in with the sporting fun

Seeing red • Would modernising our attire help buttress fieldsports – or does it simply risk losing an important tradition for no real gain?

His Master’s wrath • A great deal goes into the planning of a day’s hunting so woe betide those who upset the Master in the field

The Flyfishers’ founding fathers • Founded in 1884, the club was created for gentlemen with an interest in the art and study of fly-fishing – many of whom had ink in their veins

Within their scenic and spacious grounds, resilience is built, pupils are equipped for life’s realities and love and respect for the countryside are instilled • A curriculum that emphasises rural traditions and time outdoors better equips pupils to deal with what lies ahead – as these prep schools demonstrate

Please, sir, we want some more • Fuelling the stars of Formula 1 as well as Fielders, there’s more to porridge than...
