It is a partridge shoot that is more than just a shoot. This is a day for shooters and dog handlers, organised by gundog trainer Jason Mayhew. The day gives the dogs the field experience they need before the trialling season starts.

Meanwhile, Jenna Gearing, a countrysports sculptor, swaps her usual rifle for the new Sauer Artemis ladies’ shotgun. Jenna finds it difficult to adjust to shooting the low, undriven birds but with a bit of advice from Jason she gets into the swing of things.
