    Na steel caps not needed better off getting a pair of boots designed for off track and at least waterproof. Gri sport are ok but get the more expensive models as their lighter ones might not last

    John Bulls are fine for anything . . . . bit of nugget and off to the wedding we go . . . . . then creeping round the hills looking for a venison . . . lol
    “For us hunting wasn’t a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. . . . . . . . We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them.”
