Fieldsports Britain – Hunting the Scottish Hills

Run an estate in Scotland and it’s not all summer grouse, salmon and stags. In the winter, you have to bring down hind numbers on the hill. That’s what Niall Rowantree is doing at Ardnamurchan, with help from Sporting Shooter editor Rebecca Green, Shooting Gazette editor Will Hetherington and the folk from Blaser Rifles. Find out how they get on. Meanwhile, Charlie Jacoby is off to Sweden to look at an estate that successfully combines wildlife-watching holidays and driven hunting. And there is News and Hunting YouTube.
