Fieldsports Britain – fallow deer mass gathering


Only in a handful of places on Earth do fallow deer congregate in numbers for their annual ‘lek’. We are at one of them, in Sussex, with headkeeper David Whitby, to witness one of the marvels of the natural world. David talks about deer management here, and we go stalking inside and outside the park. Plus Charlie and his neighbours try to replicate a running boar range in a field in Somerset – and it all goes wrong. Top shot Sam Green re-establishes the professionalism with two methods of shooting rabbits. And we ask the GWCT and BASC to look into the future of the general licences – what will we be allowed to shoot throughout the UK in years to come? There are big discounts on hunting optics in Bargain Hunter this week, Charlie has the best hunting videos on YouTube in Hunting YouTube, and David brings you the latest on the News Stump. It’s all in #FieldsportsBritain
