I have decided to go with my light Beretta 20 bore field gun for tomorrow’s opener on partridge on the Carington Estate situated in the heart of the Chiltern Hills near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
It is set up with Improved and Half chokes using 28gm No6 as I am not expecting towering birds this early in the season.
Rain and wind forecast for tomorrow so the birds may have the edge on the Guns especially seeing it will be the first day of shooting this season for most of the syndicate.
Wish us luck. I shall report on how proceedings went.
