ANIMAL rights organisations are circulating letters which deliberately aim to misinform the public about hunting.

The simplest way to establish the truth is to go along on a hunt during National Newcomers Week from October 9 to 16.

Hunting is fully open and hunt organisers will be delighted to allow you to draw your own conclusions.

More than 3,000 new people went hunting during this event last year, many of whom had never seen a hunt before, and most realised just how dishonest the claims made against hunting are.
