Game shooting is part of our national heritage. Talking Game is dedicated to playing its part in ensuring that it not only survives, but thrives. We firmly believe that all shot game should always be eaten and we hope that our pages actively encourage this objective, and that they reflect the many qualities and experiences associated with country pursuits. Above all, we celebrate those who support our aims.


So with colossal thanks to…
