Fieldsports Britain – deer ruts are underway


The fallow rut is starting in the south of England, the red rut in Scotland, two deerstalkers go out in each to bag a buck and a stag. Roy Lupton is our fallow-antler clatterer, hunting down the perfect cull buck in Sussex. Meanwhile, in the North Highlands of Scotland, Charlie is on the hill to shoot a good red, with the help of pro stalker John Dodd. That’s not all: we have the results of our airgun scope survey, and the results of recent prize draws to win pheasant shooting and an Evo catapult set-up. News editor Ben O’Rourke delves into the RSPB’s finances ahead of its AGM this week, Charlie finds the best hunting videos on YouTube for Hunting YouTube, and David is on the News Stump. It is all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
