I have been writing professionally in the country sports market for many years, see below for a selection of my published freelance writing. I typically write and supply my own images, I shoot, fish and stalk deer, and throughout the year I attend Scotland’s game fairs; Deer Stalking Fair, Scottish Game Fair, and Galloway Country Fair.
