Fieldsports Britain – Pigeon shooting perfection + recipe (episode 192)

Peas means pigeons, both on the farm and on the plate. Mark Gilchrist is out after pigeons that are devastating a farmer’s pea crop – and there is a special poetry in the way the Sporting Shooter chef cooks up pigeon breast on a pea puree. He also gets to have a good rant about do-gooder bunny-hugging veggies, and even gets to teach an ex vegetarian about the joys of pigeon plucking. The shooting is legendary, the recipe delicious and even the ex-vegetarian is lovely. What more is there to an English summer’s day?

That’s not all. We are also out with the police booking naughty anglers who have not got their rod licences. There are some great excuses – “I thought my wife did it” – classic!

And we have our regulars: News Stump looks at grouse prospects for the 2013 season, antis using drones and meets a cougar that surprised a fishing party; Skinners’ gundog training tips covers the blind retrieve; there is Hallo Charlie and there is Hunting YouTube. It’s been another big week in world hunting, shooting and fishing.
