Fieldsports Britain – Red Rut Fight Sequence

We put a camera on red stag’s head so it can record the rut. It does magnificently – fighting other stags, drinking, fraying – but can we retrieve the camera? Plus we go stalking on the Ardnamurchan estate in Scotland with Niall Rowantree, who talks us through the rut. He has a guest, Alkhas Khametov, and they are after a poor quality stag in order to improve the herd. It is the third chapter in our series A Year in the Life of Red Deer.

That’s not all. Back in the South of England, The Beating Line has a tricky question to answer: does blaze orange have a place on British shoots? News and Hunting YouTube complete this episode of #FieldsportsBritain
