Fieldsports Britain – Short-Range Buck Shooting


Here’s how to call in bucks and shoot them at close-range. Roy Lupton uses his expert calling skills to bring roebucks from 100s of yards to a few metres, so he can swap between his riflescope and an Aimpoint Acro gunsight, mounted on the side of his scope. Plus Fieldsports Nation member Alex Sorisi so enjoyed Matt Turley shooting crows, he wanted to have a go too. He takes a camera to the Somerset pig farm and sends us the results. We also have the results of our centrefire scopes survey: what do you use to shoot deer, foxes and other larger game? Meanwhile, news editor Ben O’Rourke is out factchecking Wild Justice’s wild claims. He talks to grousemoor owners and finds out that Chris Packham’s line ‘grousemoors cause flooding’ is fake news. Charlie puts out the best hunting videos via this week’s Hunting YouTube and David is sitting on the News Stump. Find out more in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain

Alex Sorisi so liked the look of Matt Turley’s crow shooting set-up, he asked if he and his sister would have a go.
