The start of a new shooting season dawns on the Glorious 12th.  Guns are unlocked which may not have seen daylight since the end of last season.  Tweeds and technical clothing for the first day of the season are dug out, and boots checked for leaks!  Excitement at the prospects of a good first day is in the air.
