Fieldsports Britain – Magic of Roe Deer

The roebuck is one of the most attractive deer we look after in the British countryside. As the roebuck season gets underway in the UK – with few of us allowed to go stalking – Niall Rowantree tells the story of the roe deer, its natural history and even its mythology. While most of us are locked down at home, we bring great British crafts to your door. Paul Childerley shows you scope maintenance – how to deep clean your optics. And Alan Johnson of Danum Blades explains how to make a knife and leather sheath. Meanwhile, news editor Ben O’Rourke is looking at animal charity funding. They want your cash – but do they spend it on on saving animals? David is on the News Stump and Charlie himself has Hunting YouTube, all in this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
