GROUSE SHOOTING OPENS. Grouse shooting opened on Monday in Scotla,nd II in pouring rain and with prospects uncertain. Owing to meteorological shortcomings late broods :tre unusually numerous, and it will be necessary td delay many shooting parties till the first week in September. On the Yorkshire moors shooting opened in cloudy and gusty weather. The Prince of Wales was out shooting at Bolton Abbey. A Matlock telegram says that grouse shooting opened with the poorest prospects of the last 10 years. The birds are few owing to the wet season. Beautiful weather prevailed throughout North Wales on Monday, and sportsmen were early on the moors. Grouse are fairly plentiful and in good condition, notwithstanding the wet season, and excellent sport was experienced. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Col. France-Hayhurst, Sir Arthur Douglas, Mr. Myddelton (Chirk Castle), Mr. Lloyd Edwards (Trevor Hall), and Lady Storey (Nantyr Hall), are entertaining shooting parties on the Denbighshire Moors, while in Merionethshire Sir Henry Robertson, the Hon. Charles Wynn, and Mr. Lloyd Rhaggatt have parties. Lord Penrhyn's party, Col. Sanderson and other sportsmen were early astir on the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey moors. The celebrated Wynnstay moors at Ruabon, the property of Lady Williams-Wynn, which usually produce an annual bag of some 3,000 grouse, are being, as usual, shot over by Mr. Cory and his friends, but the sport will not be up to the average. Penrhyn Castle and moors are advertised for letting. Mrs. Gerald Leigh has taken Plas Tany, Bwlch, the residence of Mr. W. E. Oakley, with the accompanying Amnodd and Copper Mine bsats, for grouse, rented respectively from Colonel Lynes and Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn. Sir .Herbert Wynn will shoot over "the Irishman," a part of the Aberhirant Moor, rented by him from Sir Edmund Bulkeley, the remainder being shot over by Mr. Beard and his syndicate. The Liver- pool Corporation moors at Vyrnwy are occupied by Mr. Massie, and General Gough has also let his moor.
