Fieldsports Britain – Crow takes his grandson shooting

You can’t start them too young, says Crow. He takes his grandson Regan into the pigeon hide for a days decoying – and the lad loves it. Not only do we have pigeon shooting, this is the first week we unleash our new news editor. He revisits goose shooter Barry Swain, who has had more ups and downs with antis. Plus he goes on patrol looking for poachers in the East Midlands. David’s News Stump leads on the five-year phase-out of lead shot and Charlie his his video selection for Hunting YouTube in this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
