Fieldsports Britain – Lead’s Dead, Baby. Lead’s Dead

In the week the shooting organisations call for a five-year phase-out of lead shot + plastic wads + plastic cartridge cases, Charlie Jacoby goes behind the headlines to find out what shooters are thinking, what the evidence is, and how the organisations are reacting to the pummelling they are getting online. It’s also the week that the government takes another step towards banning Brits from hunting overseas, so a good week for Paul Childerley to head to Portugal in the second part of his montería driven hunt. This time, he is after wild boar and red deer. David is on the News Stump and Charlie his his video selection for Hunting YouTube in this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
