Fieldsports Britain – do goats float?

Niall Rowantree doesn’t just hunt deer. He also manages herds of feral goats on his native Ardnamurchan peninsula in Scotland. And one thing that’s notable about goats is they can’t swim from island to island. He explains how to manage them, and how to stalk and shoot them. Meanwhile, Paul Childerley is at the Sako factory in Finland finding out how to choose the right bullet. He tries out the Sako Gamehead Pro and Sako Super Hammerhead, showing the difference between the two styles of bullet. David has News and Charlie the latest Hunting YouTube, all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain.
