Geoff Garrod has been shooting pigeons for 50 years. During a day’s decoying, he describes shooting as it was then and how it is now. Meanwhile, Charlie visits refugees in France – and not the usual type. These ones are refugees from the UK’s gun laws, who have moved to France so they can carry on shooting without being punished. There’s an ugly rumour that DEFRA plans to ban electric shock collars. Deborah asks if this is about cruelty or choice? We are giving away an entry to the British open .410 Championship priced at £59, David has more on DEFRA on the news stump as the government tries to ban gamebird release in some areas of England, and James Marchington has the best hunting videos on YouTube in Hunting YouTube.
