BEAUTIFUL HUNT MAP WITH 187 COVERTS

Merrily Harpur, the celebrated artist, cartoonist and writer, has produced a beautiful and much needed hunt map showing 187 coverts in the Cattistock territory we currently hunt. Created in classic style and with some nice little cameos it really is a must have.
