Will's Guide to Pheasant Shooting Essentials

The pheasant season is now officially underway! Although some shoots have been making the most of partridges for most it all starts now and it is only going to get busier from here on in, so it’s time to check jackets, waterproofs and all of your other kit before you take them back out in the field.

With this in mind Farlows’ Shooting Assistant, Will Hogan, has selected some essential kit to ensure you make the most of your pheasant shooting season.
