Fieldsports Britain – Wayne’s thermal catty hunt


Top catapult shot Wayne Martin is out after pests on Andy Crow’s farm – and he has a thermal spotter to help him do it. In his sights are squirrels, feral pigeons and even a goose – because he’s good enough. We also look at perruque deer. Oliver Rampley is a new kind of hunting guide, and he explains how he followed an extraordinary buck throughout the summer. The Fieldsports Channel viewers tell us about the knives they use. We have the results of our knife survey. And news editor Ben O’Rourke looks at Boris Johnson’s plan to ‘protect’ 30% of the UK’s land, with the help of Tim Bonner from the Countryside Alliance and Andrew Gilruth from the GWCT. Charlie has best hunting videos on YouTube in this week’s Hunting YouTube, and David is on the News Stump. Watch is all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
