Fieldsports Britain – Bouncing Tyre, Laughing Pilbeam

Tim Pilbeam is learning to shoot sideways. He has the new Acro red dot sight from Aimpoint to play with. It’s a sight you can clamp to your scope so you can still take long-range shots and, when the animals get up close, you can twist your rifle and shoot through your Acro. He shows how, with the help of Cai Ap Bryn, our resident tyre kicker. Cai rolls tyres down a hill for Tim to shoot (no expense spared). That’s not all. We have the results of our Fieldtester shotguns survey, and we head to England’s uplands to explode a few Chris Packham porky pies about hen harriers. We look at how well the bird is doing this year, thanks to gamekeepers. David is on the News Stump and Charlie has Hunting YouTube, all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
