Fieldsports Britain – Schools Challenge, thermal imaging and culling roebuck
We’ve got roe deer stalking, young shots in the Schools Challenge, fox hunts growing flowers and the last word in thermal imaging to help you spot your wildlife in the programme this week. Roy Lupton is out at Kingsclere in Hampshire culling roebuck and maintaining the health of the deer herd there. Meanwhile, the staff of the Oxford Gun Company are at Bredon School in Gloucestershire for the latest round of the Schools Challenge – possibly the biggest young shots event in the UK. Staying in Gloucestershire and local hunts are raising money for ABF The Soldier’s Charity and the Countryside Alliance with an extraordinary plant sale at Eyford House near Stow-on-the-Wold. And probably the most exciting piece of wildlife-spotting kit available is in the hands of Sporting Shooter editor Dominic Holtam: he tests the new FLIR thermal imager on deer in Sussex.
