Take a look at the Hunter Hides Website a family-run business based on Exmoor, Devon, UK, specialising in Shooting Towers and High Seats.
Last year I put down my camera and picked up a rifle. It was all thanks to my collaboration with VenatorPro Ltd based in Perth, Scotland. Learning a new skill was an exciting new process, and one I embraced because I highly value personal growth.
When acquiring additional skills the benefits are numerous. Learning something new brings variety into our life, counteracts boredom and makes us more adaptable. Life rarely stays the same so being adaptable makes accepting change much easier.
Learning can help prevent dementia. When we learn new skills there is an increase in the density of the white matter in the brain and this helps improve performance. Learning stimulates neurons which form neural pathways and allow electrical impulses to travel faster across them.
There is a sense of euphoria when learning and seeing the result of your skills base expanding. I certainly felt that when shooting at targets with .243 Tikka T3 Rifle. It felt as though I was in a state of flow, where all my senses were charged and my focus was fully aligned to the task of target shooting. Previously, I had never shot a rifle, only a shotgun so my learning started from the basics.

It’s hard to believe the Deer Stalking Fair is five years old. The dedicated deer event was well supported by specialist retailers, industry experts giving talks and demonstrations.
Venator Pro joined the Fair for the first time, MD Kenneth Larsen said, “Great place to meet deer stalkers and we enjoyed the atmosphere at the Deer Stalking Fair and organisers were very helpful. Our first year but we will be back next year.”
Senior Coach and Shooting School Manager,Tracy Meston said, “I had a successful couple of days making custom ear plugs and taking bookings for the Roxburghe Shooting School. There was a great cross section of visitors ranging from those that ‘do’ who are in the business to those that don’t but want to! It is also a great meeting place for friends to catch up and have a blather!”
Tracy can be found at the Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course.
Going out hunting or deer stalking in remote parts of the countryside or fishing a distant hill loch?
Scotland is a sporting destination enjoyed by men and women from all over the world. Hunting and fishing in far flung, and often isolated, beautiful locations is part of the unique charm of the Scottish experience.
Scottish Country Sports participation requires preparation; picking your dates, finding your chosen location, and selecting a service provider to suit your needs.
I went walking in the snow this morning and have discovered the perfect snow boot. The boots are lightweight, and keep your feet very warm. I was out in deep snow (Scotland has lots of it today!) and only wore a standard pair of socks under the boots. If I’d been wearing wellies I would’ve pulled on two pairs of socks.
I slipped my feet into the boots and headed out. I had plenty grip in the snow, and did not slip once. My feet were kept very warm and dry. It’s a comfortable boot, and easy to wear because it is so lightweight. I love having warm feet, especially when out in the current blizzard conditions!
December has been such a fast month, and it is hard to believe we are now looking at the last few days before Christmas!
