On Saturday I invited several friends and beaters who have helped during the partridge season to have a go at partridges. Two young lads were amongst those present. Both these lads turned up well dressed for the day, listened carefully to the briefing, were totally respectful to all throughout the day, their safety was beyond reproach and both were the first forward to help out and to say thanks for their day. I have since had comments from other guns present as to the excellent conduct of these guys. If this is what being brought up with shooting as a sport/way of life does, more youngsters need to be encouraged.
