Fieldsports Britain – Commonwealth Games shooting heroes and foxes with Robert Bucknell

Our Commonwealth Games shooting winners (and we hope our Olympic winners in 2012) get an airing on this week’s programme. We ask double gold medal winer Stevan Walton and silver medallist Abbey Burton what was Delhi like? How do you get to be the best shot in the civilised world? And how come Britain swept the board for shooting medals when UK Sport can be so mealymouthed about funding it? These are all the questions you didn’t see on the BBC, because the BBC abandoned shooting in Delhi in favour of sports at which England, Scotland and Wales are not so good. That’s not all. We’re out with the Surrey Union hunt enjoying the opening of the foxhunting season. If you don’t want to go after charlie from horseback we’re with top foxshooter Robert Bucknell learning how to hit them from car windows. And we’re with Mike Yardley at the gorgeous Mornacott Estate in Devon learning what goes on behind the scenes at a top pheasant shoot. Keep it Fieldsports Channel!
