Is our sport really turning into a field full of yuppies ????????
I have paid days out on various practices with lads comming out in fancy clothing costing a fortune, i mean a fortune...Harkila , drizabone, etc etc top notch wear for bunny bashing / foxing etc etc & climbing over farm gates & fences !! rippppppppp, with no rifle !! fancy elaborate sticks, designer labelled boots, digital this & that , glasses & state of the art optics glass that Patrick Moore would be in awe at !!
Everybody to there own, but....what happened to the hunter/ stalker /field man that brought a rilfe shot safe & with common sence , & experince buliding up from a kid, falling in his worn out jeans , getting a rollocking from his mum about the mud ??
Not a comfort washed pink polo shirt !!
Where is it all going to ??
Maybe its me, im on budget equitment, that does the job perfect, with good / superb results,& the freezer is always bursting at the seams. I know im getting older, fitter & wiser , but geeeeeeeeeeeeee where the cave man instinct gone ??
