Fieldsports Britain – Geoff's pigeon drought is over

It’s been a long, sad summer for Geoff Garrod. The reason? No pigeons to shoot. At last they are back, and he is in the hide and happy. Meanwhile, it could be a tough winter for pheasant shooting as bird flu grips the UK countryside. Deborah finds out what shoots and shooters should be doing. And how accurate are you with a rifle? The F Class boys at Bisley can put a hole in a small plate at 1,000 yards, and they reveal how. ATN showcases its night vision scope, we are giving away a day on a rifle accuracy course with SharpShootingUK priced at £379, Meredyth is on the news stump, and James Marchington has the best hunting videos on YouTube in Hunting YouTube.
