Fieldsports Britain – Shooting giant guinea-pigs

Tim Pilbeam is in Argentina shooting a range of farm pests, including the world’s largest rodent, the capybara, and gigantic Asiatic buffalo. It’s a pest control job much like back home in the UK, but with surprising South American twists. Ben Husthwaite explains how to swing-through in the latest in his Smokin’ Targets series on how to shoot straight. And Charlie has the latest on the general licences. Plus Aaron has News (David is away) and there’s Hunting YouTube in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain.
