Fieldsports Britain – how to manage a fallow deer herd

Deer expert Niall Rowantree is known for his red deer, his sika and even his roe. Less well-known is the herd of 100 fallow deer on the ground he manages at Ardnamurchan in the Scottish Highlands. He and ecologist Dr Cathy Mayne go out to stalk two fallow does, as part of his management plan. Meanwhile, Cai Ap Bryn is upon a hill in Norway. He catches and cooks trout, outdoor-style. There’s ‘Hallo Charlie!’, Bargain Hunter, David is on the News Stump and Charlie has Hunting YouTube to round up this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
