Fieldsports Britain – we’re a little bit veggie

Paul Childerley takes a vegan out to shoot a deer. Katie Hargreaves is a properly woke wildlife artist – but she is connected enough to the augment to understand that hunting has a place in veganism. Find out how she gets on shooting her first Chinese water deer. Taking the deer process further, we join celebrity chef Tim Maddams and his sidekick, Country Foood Trust boss Tim Woodward, to cook up butternut squashes stuffed with creamy venison (who says game needs to be low fat?). And news editor Ben O’Rourke heads into the murky world of rural crime, joining Northumbria Police for Operation Checkpoint. Charlie has the best of YouTube’s hunting videos in Hunting YouTube, and David delivers the news on the News Stump. It’s beginning to look a lot like #FieldsportsBritain
