Fieldsports Britain – Wind Farm Deerstalking Challenge

We’re hunting under the windmills, this week. In the last in this season of Rucksack & Rifle, Tim Pilbeam is hindstalking in and around a Scottish wind farm. He also finds out how gamekeepers manage ground under the wind farms by encouraging red stags and discouraging hinds. Meanwhile, Roy Lupton has been off to see how his falcons fly on the houbara bustards of Azerbaijan. Houbara bustards? Aren’t they endangered? Not any more. Roy’s Arab clients are pouring millions into houbara bustard reintroduction and conservation. We have News, there’s Hunting YouTube and we reveal the winner of the Shooterking Digitex competition in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
