Fieldsports Britain – Planet Deer

This week: the massive stags of New Zealand. We are looking at deer hunting and management all over the world thanks to our sponsors. In the first of our series Planet Deer, Scottish deer expert Niall Rowantree visits South Island, which has turned the red deer from a pest into a major industry. He meets the Fraser family, who farm and hunt the animal, and Jonathan Wallis, son of Sir Tim Wallis, who practically invented New Zealand deer. That’s not all. Cai Ap Bryn shot a fallow buck in last week’s show and promised to show how to make deer heart wraps – so here they are. Plus we go behind the scenes at Fieldsports Channel for a comic look at the creative process with our editor Aaron Jones. There are the top hunting videos of the week in Hunting YouTube, and David films News Stump in Sweden of all places. Don’t ask. It is all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
