Hunters and shooters get the best new technology in their kit – and this week we showcase two of the best of the best: deerstalking clothing which gets rid of the bugs and ticks that carry disease, and a 4WD vehicle quiet enough for you to be deadly on rabbits and foxes.
We find a fabric designed literally to disorientate ticks when they try to attach themselves to it. Clothing made with this material is already having a major effect on the health of deerstalkers.
Meanwhile, Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam looks at another quiet revolution. He puts Mitsubishi’s new Browning-branded ‘hybrid’ offroader through its paces: the PHEV.
That’s not all. Sporting Rifle foxshooting expert Mike Powell talks through his top six ‘desert island’ calibres, there’s a popstar posing with a pig in News, Hunting YouTube has boar, duck and foxes, and ‘Hallo Charlie!’ has a big fox shooting result from Australia plus – just in time for April Fool’s Day – an American elephant hunt. That’s Fieldsports Britain – all you could want, from sublime to ridiculous.
