Fieldsports Britain – Big Squirrel Hunt, episode 487

With spring underway and songbirds starting the long struggle to raise their broods, it’s a good time of year to go out and shoot grey squirrels. Gamekeeper Paul Childerley and his buddy Scott are doing just that, with Remington semi-auto and pump, in woodlands around their Bedfordshire shoot. Jamie Chandler is on pest control duty, too. He is out on the farm in Hampshire looking for pigeons and, of course, squirrels. Plus he has the new BSA Defiant bullpup air rifle to try. There’s Hunting YouTube and David is on the News Stump in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
