I have often been asked what my last meal would be if I had one more day left on earth. The answer is Roast Lamb with dauphinoise potatoes, green beans and a salsa verde sauce!
However, instead of a last meal, how would you spend your last day on earth? Would you go shooting? And if so what would you do?
Some members of The Gun Trade have given their thoughts to this question below:
James Horne (Director of GunsOnPegs)
“Definitely the opportunity to get a McNab with a couple of good friends. I’d be up very early to take the salmon first, then out on the moor for the grouse and finally I would hopefully have plenty of time to find the stag. I’m sure a suitable celebration in the evening would follow! It is your last day after all!”
Rob Fenwick (Director at E J Churchill – Shooting Ground and Sporting Agent)
“A day’s pheasant shooting at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. Shooting all the great drives in the Park, starting with North Bunkers! Just a 6 gun line with my closest friends! For me it is one of the most stunning shoots and places in the country.”
Alastair Philips (General Manager at William Evans)
“A lovely day somewhere in Norfolk with mates, just shooting cock pheasants!”
Dylan Williams (Director at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School and Sporting Agent)
“An early morning duck flight followed by a walked-up day with three mates after woodcock and snipe – perhaps with 5 different species by the end of the day”
Roy Lyu (Boss & Co)
“It would have to be a night’s stay at Loyton Lodge (for the hospitality c/o Angus Barnes) followed by some challenging high and fast partridges at Challacombe with its beautiful surroundings, especially the Pixies Rocks drives.”
Chris Horne (Director of GunsOnPegs)
“Three drives in the morning, one of grouse, one of high pheasants and one of high partridges, followed by a long afternoon of some serious roost shooting!”
