Push pheasants over guns with a following wind and you are always in for a spectacular day. That’s all very well – but those birds can easily keep flying. Charlie visit the Popham Shoot in Hampshire for a windy driven game day to find out how they hold birds.
We’re also looking at deerstalking this week: the video of the stag shot in water that has outraged stalkers in recent weeks. We talk to its detractors and the man who took the shot.
We have kit for you this week: this week’s Fieldtester, an item about the Night Stalker package of Howa rifle and night vision, and we have a Bargain Hunter special offer for you: 10% off selected night vision and thermal scopes at Braces of Bristol
And just when you thought it was all over, news editor Ben O’Rourke has been talking to Florida’s top snake wrangler about how he hunted down a record Burmese python in the Everglades in October.
Charlie also gives you the best hunting videos on YouTube in Hunting YouTube, and David brings you the latest on the News Stump. It’s another packed #FieldsportsBritain
