Meet the author Alasdair Mitchell

Alasdair Mitchell owns and lives on a remote farm situated on the barbarian side of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland. In addition to sheep, he keeps a small herd of red deer. Married, with two children, he farms and manages land of high conservation value in a manner that is sympathetic to wildlife.

In his earlier years, he was a soldier, stockbroker, PR consultant and company director. He is also a former director of BASC’s Northern Region. In 1997 he wrote his first book, Goose Shooting. He has written regularly for the sporting press since then. His columns for the Shooting Times continue to provoke debate, amusement, appreciation and outrage in roughly equal measure.
