British driven bird shooting is one of the premier types of hunting in the world.
It is not just the excellent sport that makes it so; it the century old customs and traditions, the camaraderie of the day and and the connection with the amazingly beautiful British countryside.
Luxury shooting, deer stalking and fly fishing vacation packages can be planned and booked at www.britishcountrysports.co.uk
The amazing handcrafted rifle The Ivory Hunter from Austrian craftsman Johann Fanjoz, renowned gunmakers since 1790.
The Ivory Hunter is a tribute to the legendary African hunters, who in pursuit of discovery and adventure, shaped the myth surrounding the biggest mammal on earth – the Elephant.
The Ivory Hunter is based on the Carabine rifle of the legendary African hunting calibre .416 Rigby.
Safari Tech Riyadh 2016 finished this evening. Another very busy day on the stand with visitors from Saudi, Dubai, Oman and Kuwait all eager to learn something about British Fieldsports.
I would like to thank and congratulate the organisers for taking the bold step to stage the event and for their excellent running of the show. Everything seemed to go off well. Continue reading
We met hundreds more Saudi hunters this evening at Safari Tech.
The passion they have for hunting and shooting is obvious (exemplified by the cost of GBP 2 per shotgun cartridge) and it starts at a very young age.
Final day today. Looking forward to another big attendance and lots of interesting people to speak with.
An amazing response at the opening of Safari Tech Exhibition in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia last night.
Lots of local interest in the exhibition and especially of British Country Sport’s attendance. We met lots of great people – Saudis have a wonderful sense of humour.
Our new local staff members Omar and Mohammad have been fabulous in helping set up and speaking with visitors to the stand last.
Day 2 commences at 4pm today. Looking forward to meeting a lot more of our Saudi FB friends there today and tomorrow.

My wife and I had the pleasure of recently being given a behind the scenes tour of The Ritz, one of London’s premier 5 Star Hotels.
What an amazing experience to be able to view such a special piece of British history and fine culture.
No wonder it is a favourite for the rich and famous when they come to good old London town and an establishment the British Country Sports can accommodate clients if they so desire. It comes with an excellent gun room and storage for other sporting equipments our clients may bring with them.
The Ritz and its services.
Well that is #ADIHEX over for another year.
Abu Dhabi is a wonderful city and the Emirati people are gracious and friendly hosts.
ADIHEX was a well run show which gave us another forum to meet experienced and inexperienced hunters, fisherman and falconers to whom we could introduce the delights of British country pursuits.
We will be back again next year – inshallah! Continue reading
ADIHEX 2106 continues to be an enjoyable experience for our staff.
Lots of visitors to our stand from the more distant Emirate States, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia – all keen hunters & shooters eager to learn how things are done in the UK.
Day 2 of 5 days of exhibiting completed. The crowds have been constant and the interest shown by our friends from the Gulf in British country sports encouraging.
Big thrill today was having Alice Mills one of the world’s leading lady jockeys drop by the stand. Alice is a wonderful ambassador for women in sport and with her hectic globetrotting schedule for racing and other equestrian interests is a very interesting person to chat with.
