On Tuesday 7 July the Holland & Holland Shooting Grounds hosted the annual Time Inc. shooting magazines “Editors Challenge”. Inaugurated in 2013 and won that year by Robin Scott at the time Editor of “Sporting Gun”, it was won this year, for the second time in a row by Jonathan Young, Editor of The Field.
The theme was “The Game Season in a Morning”, starting with a twenty bird fast Grouse sequence in “Black Eye Corrie”, where we are now instructing for the coming season. Then moving on to a Partridge flush and then to the Six Acre for a High Pheasant challenge, at which time there was only one point separating Will Hetherington of Shooting Gazette and Jonathan Young, out in the lead. The shoot finished with a sequence in the Pigeon Hide, after which Jonathan had moved ahead to take the trophy by four points from Will. Also shooting were Kate Gateacre, Editor of Sporting Gun, Joe Dimbleby of Shooting Times and Regina Tumbridge-Harringer, Head of Marketing for the shooting titles.
