Fieldsports Britain – win a day’s pheasant shooting

 

Lots of firsts this season: driven gameshooting is covid-safe, there’s the new Beretta Silver Pigeon III to try, and Olympic medallist Steve Scott has taken up gameshooting. Roy Lupton enjoys a day at the Steventon Shoot in Hampshire, where you can win a peg. Every month throughout the 2020/21 season, Sporting Game Services is giving away pegs in a draw to be held on Fieldsports Britain. Find out how to enter the draw. Plus we talk night vision and thermal spotters and scopes with foxshooting kit reviewer Mike Powell. Does he agree with our viewer survey? We reveal our new survey – this weeks it is the top moderators of 2020. Ben O’Rourke is in Scarborough, where the locals council is paying a dotty £2,000 per business to get rid of gulls – the same gulls that Natural England insists are too rare to shoot. Charlie has the viewers’ pick of hunting videos on YouTube in this week’s Hunting YouTube, and David reports on the latest anti action on the News Stump. Catch all of this in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
