Silvio Calabi

Silvio Calabi is an editor-at-large for Shooting Sportsman magazine and the author of many books and magazine articles about 'the sporting life'—most recently a three-volume series called The Gun Book for Boys, for Girls and for Parents. He is also Belvoir Castle’s US representative. For shooting driven pheasant and partridge at Belvoir, contact him at calabi.silvio@gmail.com.

Griffin & Howe clients recently had the chance to hear shooting pointers from one of the world’s top grouse shots, and then to shoot simulated driven grouse under his expert eye. Phil Burtt, who manages the shooting at England’s Belvoir Castle, was in the US with his boss—Her Grace, the Duchess of Rutland—and presented a tutorial at Hudson Farm, Griffin & Howe’s shooting preserve in Andover, New Jersey, on March 19, 2014.
