    Nice to see another piece in the national press raising awareness of what we do. Reasonable and balanced piece, with a few obvious errors.

    Some 'interesting' comments as ever afterwards. It never ceases to amaze me how many 'experts' there are out there who are prepared to commit their views on any number of give subjects to paper or screen.

    The "anti" ones have mostly been voted down though, interestingly. Is that all our work, or is the general public on our side?

    I've been encouraged by the number of reasonably balanced pieces on field sports in the recent press despite the obvious factual errors. At least the guy shot and ate the deer, unlike Gordon (Macho) Ramsey who couldn't pull the trigger but was happy to send his "garden" animals to the abattoir. You'll never persuade the antis, (I really hope that they are all vegetarian), but it's rather worrying that so many think that all meat just comes via a supermarket truck wrapped in plastic.

    Morning,

    The chef, Andrew McLeish, happens to be a very good friend of mine. In the spirit of promoting the field to fork concept further, he is offering a free glass of champagne to every SD member when booking a table. Just mention the SD site and this thread.

    A really good honest article. And I know exactly what he means about feeling sad after shooting an animal - its something I always feel as well. Personally I do think all hunting is and should be a very personal choice.
