Shooting and fieldsports enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that their favourite magazines will be offering even better value for money.
In a move to strengthen the brands and simplify its offering, the publisher will blend Sporting Rifle into weekly Shooting Times. Clay Shooting magazine will be a section in monthly Sporting Gun whilst Shooting Gazette will be merged into The Field.
Patrick Galbraith, editor of Shooting Times commented: “For almost 140 years Shooting Times has been the bible of British fieldsports. This merger will see Sporting Rifle’s market-leading content being added to Shooting Times‘ existing weekly blend of shooting, stalking, game cookery, conservation and all the latest news and comment from a team of experts and award-winning rural writers.
“It is hugely exciting that Shooting Times will now contain more content than ever before and I really look forward to welcoming Sporting Rifle’s readers and contributors on board. ”
The final issue of Sporting Rifle will be on sale on 1st April. The first issue incorporating Sporting Rifle will be published on 5th May.
