Fieldsports Britain – Grouse virgins (episode 196)

Badger cull, stalkers’ breakfast, Brownings, Bentleys, Aston Martins and a team of guns who have never shot grouse before: it’s all in this week’s Fieldsports Britain.

We are out with Shooting Times editor Alastair Balmain and BASC’s Huw Lloyd at the invitation of Newton Rigg gamekeeping college. There are six guns who have never shot grouse before and this is their chance, on the fells above Shap in Cumbria. They are out to enjoy the cream of shooting sports AND lose their grouse virginity at the same time.

And how do you shoot grouse? Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam joins the team from Browning take their finest guns and blag some top motors from HR Owen to take in an English country pile and get to grips with grouseshooting at the Atkin Grant & Lang shooting ground.

That’s not all. Mark Gilchrist is out stalking fallow prickets and cooking up a delicious stalkers’ breakfast. Here’s how to cook deer liver and heart.

And we have the regulars: Hunting YouTube, ‘Hallo Charlie!’ and News stump leads on the badger cull and Abbey Burton’s success at the 2013 Universal Trench world championships in Maribor, Slovenia.

Lots of stuff beginning with B this week: badgers, buck, birdshooting, Brownings, Bentleys, Brocket Hall, Burton (Abbey), breakfast… any others?
