Fieldsports Britain – Tackling New Zealand’s alien invasion

What to do about great big aliens tearing up the countryside? New Zealand’s government says it has a problem with a Himalayan goat species. Niall Rowantree says that tahr are a sporting asset. He goes on a pest control trip in New Zealand to test his theory. Meanwhile, Roy is training his birds to attack corvids – and he is using a drone dressed up as a crow. We have a promo for the new Leica Fortis scope, News and Hunting YouTube in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain.
