Where have we been?

Our blog followers must be wondering what on earth has happened. After all, we usually post several times a day, and in the last few days … nothing.

Well, there are two reasons. The first is that we are moving to a new blog, integrated with our new website. This will be going live tomorrow, and what you’re looking at now will become a permanent archive (but we won’t be allowing any further comments on these pages). You’ll know when we’ve moved to the new site because there’ll be a ‘sign’ on this blog to tell you.

The second reason is the election. Five members of our campaigns team worked through the night to monitor election results, and we’ve spent the last few days ‘crunching’ the information and looking at numbers and strategies. We’ll be publishing information on what the election outcome means for hunting on our website tomorrow.

Thank you all for your patience!
