Fieldsports Britain – Squeaking in Bucks

How do you call in a roe buck – and stop it coming in so you can shoot it? Paul Childerley shows how with the help of a buttolo call, a beech whistle and Percy the Pig. Find out which is best. Meanwhile, it’s the first in our new Smoking Targets series with the bad boy of British shooting Ben Husthwaite. Ben shows how to shoot a bouncing rabbit – then explains why he is not a cheat – just a shooter who knows the rules.

News leads on the Glorious Twelfth, the opening of the grouse shooting season – and it’s going to be a good one. Meanwhile, the roe rut figures in the round-up of this week’s YouTube films in Hunting YouTube. It’s a full half-hour of hunting and shooting in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
