Paul is putting in the miles hunting ptarmigan and capercaillie in glorious Lapland. It’s tough going over wet terrain in a biting wind. That demands a special sort of bird dog. Paul visits the kennels at Pinetree Lodge to meet the dogs, from husky crosses to spaniels and setters. Then it’s out across the tundra in search of ptarmigan. The dogs are ranging 500 metres either side, covering a huge amount of ground. Will they finally locate a covey and give Paul a shot?
