Fieldsports Britain – Hind Culls in the Hills

It’s the fourth and final part of our popular series, A Year in the Life of Red Deer. It is winter, and Niall Rowantree from Ardnamurchan is making the decision which deer he wants to live and which he wants shot. Plus he gives his tips on feeding deer on whisky bye-products. Meanwhile, in Ireland, what happens when a shot goes wrong. Jens Ulrik Högh is stalking with Norman Mulvany of Irish Safaris, and they are up against failing daylight to track an injured sika hind. There is News and there is Hunting YouTube. It’s another packed episode of #FieldsportsBritain
