Fieldsports Britain, episode 66, 2nd March 2011 By: fieldsportstv
It's the cooks and books episode! We've got Clarissa Dickson-Wright (that's not a real picture in case you wondered) talking about her book Potty, wich has 100 of Clarissa's favourite recipes that can all be cooked in one dish in the oven or on the hob. Clarissa also talks about her forthcoming book, a history of British cookery since the Second Crusade. And, being Clarissa, she reveals the best ways to cook both badger and seal. Meanwhile, Sporting Shooter chef Mark Gilchrist is out pigeon shoo...

Fancy a new gamekeeping vehicle? We're testing the Kawasaki Mule, the Kubota RTV, the John Deere Gator and the JCB Workmax against each other. Let's see which one is the winner! That's not all. We're at a young shots event near Bristol trying out ferreting and falconry. And we're talking to the new chief executive of the Countryside Alliance Alice Barnard about politics and the future of foxhunting, as she goes to a Lincolnshire point-to-point.

It´s dogs and guns this week. We´re off to the fabulous kennels of the Duke of Buccleuch in South-West Scotland in search of canine comfort, and we visit the makers of the TransK9 dog transport system. Then it´s back to the south of England where Sporting Shooter magazine chef Mark Gilchrist has got a new farm to shoot over, and he has to go there ready for pigeons, rabbits and deer.
Fieldsports Britain, episode 63, 9th February 2011 By: fieldsportstv
For the programme this week, our arsenal includes a Spartan armoured car, a double rifle converted to goose gun and two Harris hawks. And what a bag: two foxes, four rabbits, a selection of Norfolk partridges and the reachiest pinkfoot goose you may ever have seen. We're shooting driven birds with the Light Dragoons next to Sandringham in Norfolk (they're the ones who bring the tank), we are out on the Solway Firth with the Wigtown Bay Wildfowlers, and our falconer/foxshooter Roy Lupton is lampi...

Achtung boar! We're in Germany on a driven boar hunt with top sports optics company Zeiss and we ask the question: who are the top boarshooters? Germans, Italians, Scandinavians or Brits? Find out here. That's not all. We are also following up injured animals with a Hanoverian hound. And we are in London with Rob Gray of the Countryside Alliance to find out what the UK parliament has in store for shooters this year.

For fast-action sport, we're after hares with golden eagles in the Berkshire countryside thanks to Roy Lupton. We're also joining top Oxfordshire stalker Owen Beardsmore of Cervus UK to look at a lovely estate he manages in the Chilterns, and joining in with the muntjac and fallow deer cull. And we're training a Bavarian mountain hound with Dom Holtam of Sporting Shooter magazine. The shooting season may be coming to an end but we're packed with ideas on how to spend your weekends in the next fe...

It's vintage Fieldsports Channel. We have the hunt for big cats in Wales (are those cat's eyes by the sheep carcase?). We have the preview of the Handicap Classic, one of the best prizes in shooting. We have George Digweed on the best clay cartridges. And we have Selena Masson, ex Shooting Times, reunited with her stolen gundog, Archie.
Fieldsports Britain, episode 59, 12th January 2011 By: fieldsportstv
We're chasing rabbits with a trencher pack of terriers and other curs in Somerset's lovely Quantock Hills this week. We're also at the Steventon Shoot in Hampshire (Jane Austen used to live there) where the keeper has returned after 20 years to bring about change. And we're with top shot George Digweed to discuss the best cartridges for high pheasants, reachy partridges and fast grouse. Fog and snow has characterised the British Isles in the last couple of weeks but we've been out there, deliver...
Fieldsports Britain, episode 58, 5th January 2011 By: fieldsportstv
Our massive 26lb Maidstone fox has been one of the biggest stories in the British press so far this year - but now we have found a bigger fox. Dennis Rowsell of Somerset shot a 34lb fox in 2009. We interview him in this programme about it. That's not all. We're also learning about long-range shooting paint pots (very satisfying) with Keith Poyser of training outfit Bangs Bucks & Bullseyes, and we are hearing about non-toxic cartridges for duck and geese from top shot George Digweed.
