The Glorious Twelfth: Shoot in Style with Ken Varey!

The Glorious Twelfth is finally here! August 12th 2021 marks the beginning of the shooting season for red grouse and ptarmigan and as such is one of the most important dates on the hunting calendar.

The date of the 12th of August as the start of the shooting season for grouse and ptarmigan is traditional, dating back almost 200 years. The current legislation that enshrines the date is set out in the Game Act of 1831 in England and Wales. For Northern Ireland, the corresponding law is the Wildlife Order of 1985.

If you're heading out on the hunt on the Glorious Twelfth 2021 then you're going to want to do it in style. Here at Ken Varey Town and Country Wear, we have an array of shooting attire in stock to help you do just that. And, to celebrate the Glorious Twelfth, many of these items are currently available with a significant price reduction.

Our collection of shooting attire includes:
