Fieldsports Britain – Prince Philip at BASC and George Digweed on pigeon cartridges

It’s the big royal story – no, not Wills and Kate! HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, dominates the world of British shooting this week, speaking in support of the sport during a visit to BASC headquarters. We were there to see the helicopter come and go. We’re with another giant of the sport, George Digweed, learning which cartridges to use to shoot pigeons. George recently held the record for the most amount of pigeons shot to one gun in the UK in one day. And we are learning more tips on long-range rifle shooting with Keith Poyser of Bangs Bucks & Bullseyes. It’s another packed programme.
