Scottish deerstalker Niall Rowantree is in New Zealand to deal with a local pest problem. Wallabies and possums, imported from Australia and released, are wreaking havoc on the islands. He shows what a problem agricultural pests can be. Plus we find out the latest on the general licences debacle: Natural England has banned the shooting of pigeons and crows. What are BASC and the Countryside Alliance doing about it? And Charlie is off to meet a shoot tailor. Justin Block explains the right choice of tweed and the correct cut for the proper gamshooting look. Plus the rest of the News Stump and Hunting YouTube in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
