It’s everything you need to know about managing one of our most common deer, in this episode of #FieldsportsBritain. Fallow deer were released all over England to provide sport for kings and noblemen. Now it is up to deer managers to ensure the herds stay healthy. In Part 1 of ‘A Year in the Life of Fallow Deer’, we join deerstalker Phiz Phizacklea to find out how he does it, and to learn more about this animal. More parts of this story over the next year. That’s not all: Ben Husthwaite concludes his series on shooting straight with advice on springing teal, there is David on the News Stump, Hunting YouTube and we announce the winners of two recent competitions: a superb Percussion shooting suit and a fabulous Harkila rucksack.
