December Irish shooting sport – Fieldsports Ireland, episode 5

For Fieldsports Ireland episode 5, Jason Doyle is out after pigeons over oilseed rape and sika in the Wicklow mountains. The pigeons are coming in well and Jason enlists the help of pigeon guide Stephen Dunbar to explain how he decoys and shoots them. By the time Jason gets into the Wicklow mountains, the temperature has dropped. ‘Ideal conditions to go camping,’ says Jason’s buddy Will O’Meara, so off they go, hoping they are well protected from the wintry weather. Happily, Jason has lots of kit on test this month: Benelli Raffaello over-and-under and Gamebore’s Supersteel cartridges for the pigeons, Leica Geovid range finding binos and Ridgeline clothing for the stalking. And is he wearing the worst Christmas jumper ever?
