Fieldsports Britain – Giant stags of New Zealand

Hunting takes us to some amazing places. Scottish deerstalker Niall Rowantree is in New Zealand, stalking the biggest red stag of his life and finding out about the economy of wild red deer management. Meanwhile, Charlie Jacoby goes to the craziest horse race in the UK, run by the Ledbury Hunt, four miles flat out along the banks of the River Severn, with every kind of horse and jockey. It’s the Golden Button Challenge. Plus, David can teach you the tips and tricks that make a great Fieldsports Channel film in our new workshop sessions. There’s Hunting YouTube, David is on the News Stump, and Charlie rounds up some viewer suggestions for Tim Pilbeam’s Lyme disease, which featured in last week’s show. All this and more, in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
