Fieldsports Britain – #LoveIsland hunt

Those deer don’t shoot themselves. Lockdown or not, deer managers still have to do their work, protecting crops and woodland. Ollie Williams is no exception. He might be a recent #LoveIsland contestant but, back home in Cornwall, he is a deer manager, and he has to shoot his share of bucks. We join him on his rounds. Meanwhile, Roy Lupton has had a deer tragedy. He has a pair of muntjac in a paddock. They had a fawn that the foxes killed, so now it is up to Roy to deal with those foxes. Out with the thermal scope and the rifle, and he sits up and waits for them. That’s not all. As the UK comes out of lockdown, you can go fishing but not clay shooting. We ask Martin Salter of the Angling Trust and Ian Parker of the CPSA to talk lobbying tactics. Are the shooting organisation slow off the mark compared to angling? And we have a report from Hong Kong, which bans hunting and shooting but has a pig problem, and no solution until it allows hunting and guns. There’s Bargain Hunter, David is on the News Stump and Charlie has Hunting YouTube to round up this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
