Fieldsports Britain, episode 48, 27th October 2010 By: fieldsportstv
Our Commonwealth Games shooting winners (and we hope our Olympic winners in 2012) get an airing on this week's programme. We ask double gold medal winer Stevan Walton and silver medallist Abbey Burton what was Delhi like? How do you get to be the best shot in the civilised world? And how come Britain swept the board for shooting medals when UK Sport can be so mealymouthed about funding it? These are all the questions you didn't see on the BBC, because the BBC abandoned shooting in Delhi in favou...

It's the most mysterious piece of kit in shooting and in this week's programme we're on a mission to discover the answer to the big question: how do they make riflescopes? We are the first camera crew to be allowed behind the scenes at the classiest of glass merchants, Zeiss in Germany, to see precisely what it takes. Then we go off to a range to try out the Zeiss scopes. But not just any range. This is a cinema, where you can shoot elephants, wild boar - anything you like - and with real rifles...

What's cuter: seals or squirrels? In this week's programme we're off to shoot both of them. We're with Center Parcs ranger Jerry Moss in Cumbria, a leading light in the Penrith & District Red Squirrel Group. He's the one who designed that new Daystate airrifle, the Red Ranger, specifically for squirrels. He shows how he goes about his job, trapping and shooting greys so he can maintain his island of reds at the Penrith Center Parcs holiday camp. Then on to Scotland where you cannot now shoot a s...

It's a dog and bird episode of our weekly programme. On the bird front, we join ace airgunner Frank Underdown to learn how to bring in pigeons to decoys and shoot them with an airgun.

Fieldsports Britain, episode 43, 22nd September 20 By: fieldsportstv
We're looking at camouflage this week. Indeed we're looking at 'glamouflage': as fashion at last weekend's Midland Game Fair and in the field, calling in and shooting foxes in daylight, where you have to be very, very invisible. That's not all. We're also at the final of the Mitsubishi Motors World Series clayshooting championship. Last year, top shot George Digweed drove away the richest prize in British clayshooting - a Mitsubishi L200 worth £26,000. This year, the winner was someone who has o...

How to put a scope on a rifle (and then go and shoot a fox with it); how to handle a big-bag partridge day at the mighty Challacombe shoot on Exmoor with just a .410 or 28-bore in your hands (badly); how to shoot pheasants straighter with expert Mike Yardley on the beautiful Mornacott Estate in Devon; and how, if you are an Oxfordshire lady, you can enjoy a lovely day's shooting with your girlfriends.

This week's half-hour programme has us in Ireland, Scotland and England. We're crossing the water to see the lurcher and terrier action at the Birr Castle Game Fair in Co Offaly, we're in the West Country learning how to shoot pheasants straighter with top shot Mike Yardley, and we're in Scotland asking the question: how many deer remain? Last winter's snow saw a colossal death among some of Scotland's deer herds. We're up above Loch Rannoch on the Innerhadden Estate counting the survivors and t...

It's the man who wants buzzards back on the vermin list. In this week's programme, Alex Hogg, chairman of the Scottish Gamekeepers Association, talks about that as well as the Wildlife & Natural Environment Bill which is due to be debated by the Scottish Parliament. Why does the Scottish Government hate deer, snaring and muir burn? Will they really classify pheasants as an invasive non-native species?
