Fieldsports Britain - Bambi-catching, chalkstream trout and pesky dassies

Uploaded by fieldsportschannel on 13.06.2012

Welcome to Fieldsports Britain.
Coming up. Browning shows us how to assemble and dis-assemble a semi-auto as fast as you
possibly can, using a kid with a blind fold. How do you think he does it? I do not know.
We are after the rat, rabbit type animal from Africa. The rock hyrax or dassie. And using
it to show you about bullet drop. Simon Barr from Realtree is looking for calves. That
is not cow calves, that is red deer calves.
First, the weather. It is as good as it is going to get. Let us head for the chalk streams.
Well it has been pretty changeable weather over the last few weeks. Especially over the
Jubilee weekend. Bad news if you are a grouse chick, a partridge chick, Prince Philip, or
a hatching mayfly. But at last the weather has changed, which takes me to the river Kennet.
And I cannot fail, I cannot.
Read any article about the top 5 fishing destinations in the world and the river Test will be in
there. But there is a problem with this most famous Hampshire chalk stream these days.
Why are we not on the Test?
I fished the Test for 3 days and the fish were just taking under the surface. They were
not taking any Mayfly off the top.
Is that bad?
Very bad because the whole point about Mayfly is that a lot people fly in here to fish ‘Duffers
Fortnight' as it is called. And the fish used to take the Mayfly off the top. Now, on the
Test they were taking nothing but Mayfly under the surface. Which spoilt the day. People
were paying £240 per day to fish for trout that are not taking what they are putting
on the water, which is Mayfly, which is said to be ‘Duffers Fortnight'.
So why have you brought us here to the Kennet?
Because I heard that the trout on the Kennet were taking Mayfly off the top and indeed
today, of all days, cloudy, raining, very strange weather. They are taking off the top.
All the people I am with are having a wonderful day's sport. They are all taking fish.
And this is what we are here for.
Yes, in other words you are travelling to become a Duffer to enjoy the so called fortnight.
Where you cannot miss.
Well no, there are one or two people, there is a guy called Charlie Jacoby who fishes
with us, who is absolutely useless with a fly and who has actually taken a couple of
fish today.
Thank you for that Clive.
Clive is a former editor of Salmon & Trout magazine, where 20 years ago I worked as his
deputy editor.
Even one of the men most closely identified with the Test said it has problems when we
interviewed him last year.
Sewerage works now empties into the river Test, everything goes into it and they are
still building. Where the hell do they think they are going to get the water from.
Sensibly, Clive and I are not fishing the River Test today. We are on one of the many
other and, many believe, these days better chalkstreams in the South of England. We are
on the Barton Court stretch of the River Kennet at Kintbury in Berkshire.
The chalky downlands of the South of England offer rivers such as the Itchen, Avon, Meon
and of course Kennet. Almost all of them held to be lesser rivers than the Test. But with
the Test in such poor condition, they are all vying to take the top slot. And the fish
are doing their best to help.
Just a minute. Rewind. It is not often you get BBC Natural History Unit class filming
on Fieldsports Channel. Let us just watch that fish again in slow motion. Thank you.
This programme is out every week.
Now I have had some blank days recently. Does my luck change or, indeed, my fishing skill
improve on this water? I have plenty of those moments where everything is perfect - and
my fly is perfectly stuck in a tree behind me. But at last it comes right.
Clive has of course filled his boots - and his bag.
Now let us just say I am an American and all I have ever heard of is the river Test. Enjoy
your sausage roll, but tell me what should I be doing. Should I be going for the river
Test, or should I be going for something else.
The Test is a magnificent river, but it does not deliver the goods. This is a bit of a
scratch and catch river. It is a very kind of rural, agricultural place to fish, but
the fish do behave and take the fly and the water is very manageable. You do not need
to cast a 100 yards. You can actually pin point cast and sight cast the fish. That is
really what fly fishing should be about.
For fishing where you can easily see the fish and where the fly life grows in abundance,
you need chalk. Most people think that all the chalk in England is in the South of the
country. Wrong.
So I have come to a rather different chalk stream location. Look, chalk! So let's meet
the owner.
Well it is the most northerly chalk stream in the UK. It has been only available for
the last 10 years on a day ticket basis. Before then I suppose there were very few people
who had the privilege to fish it.
Is this the same kind of fishing as I get in Hampshire.
Absolutely, yes, just as good. For a bit less money.
Do you have a Mayfly hatch.
We do not have a Mayfly hatch, I suppose the equivalent is any where from middle to end
of April, early on in May and into May you will get the hawthorns hatching off which
is the prime time to visit here when you have got them hatching off. But it does tend to
fish quite well throughout the year.
I am on the Driffield West Beck with Peter Carr, editor of Sporting Rifle magazine and
convert to the art of fly fishing
As a Yorkshire man, Pete appreciates that the fishing here is half the price of the
same fishing in the South of England. Like the chalk streams of the South of England,
the good fishing here does not come entirely by geological accident.
Over the years we have done various projects on varion skills the major one being just
down stream.Where we were earlier at the ford, where we have nipped the river in, obviously
to increase the flow. Really give it that feel of a chalk stream. Clear the bottom of
the river out. We dropped 50 or 60 tons of gravel in there to encourage more fish to
spawn and hopefully increase the head of wild fish we have got.
Pete is a Yorkshireman, so you would expect him to say nice things about Yorkshire. Actually,
you would expect him to say nice things about only Yorkshire. What does he think of this
Fantastic spot, brilliant place to go and it is not as expensive as it is down south.
Just so that everybody knows this is the trout that Pete caught.
And Pete you are not just an expert fly fisherman.
You are using the term very loosely.
You are also the host on the Shooting Show.
The Shooting Show as it sounds is for shotgun shooters, sporting rifle shooters whether
that is rim fire, air rifle full bore, big game hunters. It is a show that comes out
every week on Monday, UK time 7.30. Do log on.

New world rankings put Abbey Burton as the top woman shot in Great Britain, and fifth
in the world for Olympic Trap. Abbey is the second highest ranked shooter in any discipline
in the country, after Peter Wilson, who is number one in the world for Double Trap. Many
shooters are outraged that Abbey has lost her appeal to join the Team GB Olympic squad
to Charlotte Kerwood, who is ranked 15th in the world.
The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips will make her Olympic debut in the Team GB eventing
team. It also includes Mary King, William Fox-Pitt, Georgina 'Piggy' French and Tina
Cook. Zara missed the 2008 Olympics because her horse Toytown was injured. She will compete
on a horse that she has brought on from novice level. Her mother, the Princess Royal, competed
in the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
RSPB Scotland boss Stuart Housden says that shooting crows is a key reason why the bird
charity has seen an increase in capercaillie numbers. It might not sound much, but it is
not often a bird charity recommends bird shooting.
A woodcock has made an Olympian 4,000-mile journey to breed. Researchers from the Game
& Wildlife Conservation Trust are gathering ground-breaking data from satellite tracking
devices attached to 12 woodcock across Britain. Monkey, a bird satellite-tagged on the Lizard
Peninsula, in Cornwall in February, has astonished the boffins by making it to a breeding ground
in central Russia.
And finally, the daughter of an Essex gamekeeper has found a novel way of celebrating the end
of the UK Government's pasty tax. 22 year old Jess Noy is making making pasties by using
grey squirrels. Jess combines the squirrel meat with caramelised pears, apples and, of
course, nuts.
You are now up to date with Fieldsports Britain News. Stalking the stories. Fishing for facts.
Now Duffers Fortnight for the trout on the chalk streams is exactly the same time of
year as the red hinds are dropping their calves. Simon Barr from Realtree has been out to find
out more.
We are always trying to tell the world that hunting and conservation go hand in hand.
Well, today it should be pretty clear. Over 30 volunteers are gathered in the grounds
of the Euston Estate, Suffolk. With a day out with a difference. Coordinating this bunch
of stalkers, walkers and wildlife enthusiasts is deer manager Chris Rogers. He wants to
learn more about his red deer population. So he has established this annual event, where
everybody grabs a hessian sack and heads off into the woods.
For those of you who have not been before, which is hopefully is not too many. You should
have a sheet of hessian. We are going to walk through the wood, in hopefully a relatively
straight line, basically looking for your stereo typical bambi type baby deer. We may
find roe kids as well. If you are not sure of the difference between a roe and a red
then cover whatever you find, ask someone else who knows, because I would rather we
messed around for a couple of minutes than lose a red. Ok?
If you find a calf, depending on the age of them, if they are young they should just lie
there and not move. If they are 2 or 3 or 4 days old they may get up and run off. The
tags we are putting in are the same as last year. One large, orange, cattle tag and then
we going to put in a small sheep tag in the other ear in case the other one rips out and
another small sheep tag which identifies the year. So last year yellow was 2011. This year
is 2012 blue.
So, in a nut shell, sack in hand, we are going to work our way through the forest in a line,
spotting the well camouflaged red calves as we go. Once spotted we then have to grab ‘em
and tag ‘em.
Is this a particular time of year you look forward to?
Yes, definitely it is one of my main times of the year and it is really the start of
the year if you think about it. With the calves being born, everything else follows this moment.
The next cycle. Putting the population back in.
So yes, it is great, it is exciting.
Before we get into position we pass a roe doe. She stands her ground, possibly because
she has young of her own. With everybody in position we can start our search.
Ok go on steady then.
So Chris how do we know if we come up to a red calf?
There is a lot of luck really. If we are lucky we will see the hinds running away. A long
way through the wood. But to be honest they usually run 3 to 4 metres in front of you
so you do not tend to see them. So there we go, got one.
Hold on guys.
It is our first of the day and now it is over to Chris to be as efficient and as calm as
possible, so we can get the young male tagged and on its way.
So just turn it round so it hasn't caught any hair in it.
It is just like tagging livestock on a farm, but this animal is fully free range. Who knows
what will happen to this deer. Will it stay in the area or will it roam else where. The
larger tag is easy enough to see with a spotting scope. So Chris and the neighbouring 5 estates
who work with him can keep an eye on collecting the data. Of course it might be shot or indeed
involved in a road accident. All this information builds up a picture for this dedicated deer
manager. For the first time trail cams are being mounted where the calves have been tagged
and left to lie. Chris wants to establish what time the mothers come back and see what
intervals are involved.
So we have got a motion camera here and what we are going to do is, if we find a calf we
are going to set it up on a tree nearby by and get some pictures of the mother coming
back to it.
Fantastic, just to show there is little disturbance and the mother comes back to pick the calf
up again.
Yes, we have never done this before. So it will be interesting to see how the mother
reacts to it.
And the time and so on whether it is at night or how quickly. That is fascinating, excellent.
At best we are hoping to add 2 or 3 calves to Chris's database. So the chances of me
unleashing the sack are slim. But then opportunity knocks and it is just me and the calf and
the horrible feeling that I am either going to miss it or somehow maim this fragile creature
with my fumbling tackle. With great relief I have my female red deer under control. Chris
does his thing and I am a happy man. What a fantastic experience. That was absolutely
amazing, get that close to such a wonderful creature.
Thank you very much. Excellent. Let's keep going and find another one.
We continue ploughing through the woodland. Sometimes we spot deer or find souvenirs on
the ground. I was lucky enough to find a complete set last year which are now in pride of place
at my home.
About 4 kilos - do you reckon 4 and half kilos?
Probably not that heavy.
3 kilos?
Put it on the scales later if Josh lets me have it.
Quite a few walking sticks in that. That is beautiful. How many points does it have?
The last deer of the morning is very fresh and damp. Chris tells the volunteers to remove
the sacking. He does not want to interfere with calves that young.
So they found a freshly born red deer calf. So fresh it still has wet ears and the hair
is still wet. Because it is so young we are going to leave it alone. Because if we put
our scent on it while it is still wet, the hind might reject it.
Fine, so we walk away from it. Minimal stress and the hind will come back shortly and pick
it up.
When they are dry it is ok, but when they are fresh born we leave them alone. Alright.
So we are about half way through the day and it has been a very positive morning. Chris
has told us that 5 has been his most ever before and we are already up to 6 which is
fantastic. So we have still got the whole afternoon to go. We found 5 probably within
about the first hour and then thereafter there was a sort of barren period maybe for a couple
of hours. We have just found another which is good. People were becoming a little bit
restless before lunch and it has motivated everybody again. I think Chris is thrilled
with the result today. It is just a wonderful thing to be involved with, seeing what those
things will become, monsters. Absolutely the most majestic species we have in the UK. So
it is a real privilege to come out. Chris is obviously a very knowledgeable guy and
it is really, really good to be with him and share in this very worthwhile exercise. So
I am very, very happy.
Lunch means finding some shade and the chance to chat with some of the volunteers.
I was sent an email from John Holmes, one of the game keepers at the college, saying
did I want to help out on this day, deer tagging. I thought, me, I couldn't refuse, I had to
come along.
Of 6 deer that we have managed to tag this morning, you have managed to get 2 of them.
That is not a bad effort considering there are 30 of us here. Any tips for us for this
Not really. Look around. Keep your eyes on the floor.
Are you a particularly good rugby player?
I used to play back in the old days, but I got too small.
What has really excited me about today is I didn't find any deer and I didn't find any
antlers. But the forest was just so abundant with life. Even from the different grasses
which were all growing up and they all looked so powerful, and full. The forest has been
really full and I have taken something from that aspect today. Nice to be around a lot
of gentlemen from the countryside. Listening to their stories and they are the kind of
reasons I have come along.
Chris has told us a lot today about the distribution and one of the most amazing things is that
some of the reds have been found as far away to the south as 20 miles and to the north
20 miles from the woodland we have been tagging in. So it really demonstrates what transient
species these reds are and quite how big the range is. Where they will go to, where they
will come back from. It is a crucially important thing this tagging programme, to keep an eye
on and monitor this very, very special heritage species in England and something for its size
and how prolific they are and how majestic they are. There is very little known about
this population in Thetford. So it is a fantastic piece of conservation this tagging programme.
We have had a very, very good morning of it. Chris has got another day of this next week.
We have got another afternoon, so hopefully we will get a few more tagged.
After lunch we move to another part of Thetford. It has been hot and very rewarding work. And
anything we find now will be a bonus. And it is twins, roe fawns. And it doesn't matter
how cold and uncaring you are. They are really, really cute. We leave them be and continue
our work, we find one more red, but it is a fresh one so we leave it alone. It has been
a remarkable day. We have walked miles and Chris has lots of data. But it would not have
been possible without the gang of volunteers.
4 stags, 2 hinds are you happy with today?
Yes, it has been brilliant, it has been really good. We have had all the local stalking community
and game keepers and some wildlife enthusiasts have come out and really helped out. It is
such an important thing to try and understand the deer a bit better. Understand how they
move in and out of the local environment. And I think from my point of view, it is really
important that as well as just shooting the deer I am understanding them, I am trying
to improve my knowledge on that species in particular.
A student of the animals.
Yes, hopefully.
With the science bit now complete. There is still the management to be done. Chris and
I plan to head off to look for some cull roe bucks.
It has absolutely been tipping it down. We just had a break in the weather. There is
probably about an hour and a half of light left before it is too dark to stalk. So as
we have been driving into this wooded area there has been a light out on the side of
the ride so we are very, very hopeful we will get something now. Looking forward to it.
After a heavy evening down pour, we spend 5 minutes watching a beautiful barn owl doing
his own bit of hunting. We check some field margins and there is plenty of life. With
a few long distance muntjac, but sadly no roe. We move back to the forest rides. Here
we come across a red hind minding her own business. And then as they often do, a muntjac
pops out. Chris has told me he wants the numbers reduced. So sets me up on the sticks. I take
the shot and she drops.
Straight down.
We are out for cull roe bucks. As Chris was saying earlier, as and when muntjac opportunities
present themselves you have got to take them. This time of year the cover is high, so that
was a window of 3 seconds to shoot that. Very happy to get that on to the ground.
Yes, that was good. We should shoot muntjac whenever we see them really.
She was heavily pregnant so that's good because we haven't left one out and orphaned.
Leaving sentimentality aside, that is potentially 2 out of the population rather than just the
one. And as you say not leaving dependants with her lactating. Everything is dead there.
Good management job.
Yes, happy, good shot, pleased.
We leave the muntjac on the side of the ride for safe keeping and we continue to look for
the cull bucks. Chris has been watching a pair close to where we started. So we have
to hurry before we lose the light. The field looks quiet, but then up pop our bucks, which
then head off.
Vegetation has grown up pretty high now and it was only when I think some of our scent
blew across the field towards them that they both put their heads up. I think they were
lying down. It might be because it rained earlier. I just looked across and saw some
antlers and then saw another pair of antlers. By that stage they had already engaged us,
eyeballing us. It was only another few seconds before they had gone. They were outside of
shootable distance when they saw us. So that is deer stalking.
It has been a very satisfying ending to the day and just to prove that hind and calf do
reunite, here is a couple of shots from the trail cams. The image was taken 12 hours after
the tagging and you can just make the deer out through the trees.
It has been a brilliant end to the day. We have had 6 calves tagged and 1 deer in the
larder. So extremely happy. I am tired and I am looking forward to going home now.
While I have been after bucks in Suffolk, Ian has been after them in Hungary. To watch
this film click on the angry buck.

From rifles to shotguns. How fast can you take down and reassemble a semi-auto. Well,
we put a kid into a blind fold to show how easy it is.
Ask an Englishman to strip down his semi-auto and you risk having your ears boxed. But what
nonsense. That's why Mr Andy Norris from Browning Shotguns will show how easy it is to take
apart and put together one of his own Maxus shotguns.
We have brought along young Will.
After a quick tutorial - this plucky teenager is motivated to dismantle and remantle this
Maxus in fewer than three minutes.
How does Mr Norris incentivise the child? Hey presto he gets 250 shells and a soft drink
- free, gratis and for nothing if he can do it. And he is blind folded.
Watch him go...
That was impressive.
How many minutes?
I make that 3. The first time you have ever come across this firearm. To take it apart,
to learn to take it apart. Take it apart blind folded and reassemble. I think that is quite
an achievement. There are people who have been shooting these sort of guns for 20 years,
still couldn't do that with their own gun. So the prize is yours young fellow.
What a clever chap- or should it be clever Browning!
Now we are off to Africa to learn a bit about bullet drop.
Now here is a problem that bullet drop compensation should not be a problem for - but we are not
interested in him - we are interested in one of his relations.
The Dassie or Rock Hyrax a rabbit-sized rodent that is a bit of a pest in Southern Africa.
Today we're going to knock a few over with a .17HMR - but first we need to zero our Zeiss
Duralyt / Blaser rifle combo.
I thought we were going to go for something like elephant. Are we not?
The family of elephant.
So tell me about this dassie or hyrax. What is it?
Rock hyrax. It is actually for me, it is a fun way to exercise with my hunting. In the
south they are heavy on them. They don't like them and it is the same with the jackal, because
I think it is 2 or 3 dassies or hyraxis, they eat the same amount as one sheep of grass
a day.
So they are like super rabbits.
Exactly. So they come from elephants, obviously. Then for the first time I had to shoot with
a .22 ... but I had to shoot 10 out of 10. 10 bullets for 10 dassies before I can go
to a bigger calibre. Then it was 5 out of 5 and then I after that I could shoot my first
spring buck.
With the rifle zeroed at 100 metres, we are off to Dassie Central before it gets too dark
- but we have to sit it out for five minute break waiting for this lanky jay walker to
do her thing.
When we arrive the place is crawling with Dassies. Karel finds a solid rest over the
dash board. Once the House of Hyrax has setttled he shoots - and misses - he does the same
thing again, giving this one a centre parting. Something is going seriously wrong.
He goes to investigate the shot.
Karel is amazed that he is missing and thinks that it is because he has zeroed in at 100
and he is shooting out to just half that distance and at an angle. Then he makes a big mistake.
He fiddles with the knob on the scope.
It was shooting a bit high because the distance is much shorter. The shooting range is 100
metres. Here we are also shooting upwards.
So we are zeroing in to 50 .
Yes, I need to drop an inch or two because it is just this height. I can see where the
bullet hit and then I can remember where it was hitting. So I will try it again.
And this is what happens when you fiddle. Another miss. This exercise brings into the
frame the vexed question of holdover and bullet drop. To set the record straight we need to
wheel out the young pretender and wheel in the experts. Darren Hull from Blaser and Stefan
Buehring from Zeiss have spent the day explaining the dark arts of bullet drop. They are here
to ensure shooters no longer have to lose sleep when their target has the cheek to be
anything but precisely 100 metres away.
Karel reckoned, whether he was right or whether he was wrong, that there may have been a bullet
drop problem with those dassies. Can you explain what bullet drop is.
Ok if we put that into the field of sight from a scope. Technically then speaking it
would almost look like the barrel is pointing upwards. So you have your tradectory coming
out over the sight line and dropping back down again. Depending on how the rifle has
been zeroed. For example if the rifle has been zeroed at 100 metres then the rise will
just come up to the side of line and drop back down again. If we zero in at +4 at 100
metres then we have at 100 metres we have 4 cm high which means I cross twice over the
line of the scope.
The ingenious solution to bullet drop is now a couple of clicks away, thanks to Zeiss's
ASV system.
You sight it in on 100 metres with the ammunition you use here 300 winchester magnum, or 338
blaser, whatever. Then you go to the computer. There we have all the ammunitions and you
can enter the ammunition, you can enter the bullet. Then you can see exactly which ring
fits to your bullet drop. So you can then open this here and change the ring to exactly
to the ring you need. Put this on zero here and then you are ready to go. So when you
shoot afterwards on 200 metres you just lift the ring, move it to the indicator which says
200 metres and then you are ready to go. You can always shoot dead on. When you move to
300 metres you can just shoot 300 metres. So you are not losing the reference to the
100 metre zero point.
With that in mind let us take the .17 HMR rifle back out and have another go at those
Dassies. This time it is Darren and Marc on the trigger and this time we have a lot more
We put the slow-mo camera on the back of the scope and it shows the devastating impact
of this flat shooting round.
Although Karel does not like the idea of dassies being on any menu these little rodents will
not be wasted. Marc and Darren collect them up and put them in the back of the Toyota
HiLux - or should that be Toyota Hyrax. They will be used to feed some hungry orphaned
cheetahs back the lodge.
Finally, it is our look at the world of hunting on YouTube. It is Hunting YouTube.
Flying pigeons and antelope with airguns, carp, catfish, speckled trout, duck, squirrel,
rats with night vision and kids eh coo. They're all on Hunting YouTube this week, showing
the best hunting, shooting and fishing videos that YouTube has to offer. Thanks to everyone
who has sent in their favourite films.
Let's get the dull stuff out the way first and it's fish and more fish in Episode 52,
Fishing Dorset, Carp and Catfish By Spodding Over Silkweed. Ah - keyword is 'spodding'.
What can they mean? SleepyFisherman10 has the answer in a film that includes great underwater
In The Carp Blog Episode 34, some eighteen episodes behind old Sleepy before him, TheCarpBlog
is on the Yately Sandhurst Session, which is the social. More than 22 minutes
long - almost as long as carp fishing itself, it is an epic Tuesday-to-Saturday cyprinidathon
with the show's biggest fish on camera to date.
Now let's go yee-haa with fish and chase sea trout, that's speckled trout off Florida with
Captain Blair and Captain Mark Nichols, the Captains Jack Sparrow and Barbossa of sea
angling. Everyone laugh like a pirate. Har-har-har. There, don't you feel alive again?
Back to shooting and we are delighted to introduce you to YoungCountrySports, a new YouTube channel
run by lads in the English countryside, doing English countryside laddish things, in this
film a healthy, wholesome story about knocking down feral pigeons. There's a bit of the 'I
say Pongo's popped a pidgo' but in general this is a welcome return to sensible Victorian
values by those generally feckless Young Persons of Playstation.
More British kids shooting and we are overwhelmed to present you to TheWoolyBanana. These kids
are cooler, harder, more tightly edited but at this rate will only be presenting one film
a year. Here is a superb 90 seconds of their entire 2011-2012 rough shooting season: pigeon,
duck, pheasants and squirrel drey poking. We implore you to subscribe to both these
British youth channels.
Now we are in a week when airguns can do incredible things. First up is the Benjamin Rogue .357
from Crosman which TeamWildHunting uses on a red hartebeest. Put away your 12 ft/lb springer.
The film about the actual hunt will be out later. In this prequel, he shows us the carcase
and bullet penetration the gun achieves on a major antelope, giving him a ting-pat moment
he can hang on his wall.
Can you shoot a pigeon in the air with an airgun? EdgunUSA - also known as Ted's Holdover
- did when he was ten years old and he wants to do it again. Keen followers of this channel
may have seen this film before but the owners of the music he used (Wagner's Ride of the
Valkyrie) kicked up a copyright fuss, so here it is again with a non-copyrighted version
of the same music. The question is, can he do it? Course he can. He is Ted the TedGun,
hero of the Holdover, respect to the king.
SnyperCat is a darn good homegrown British shot. Here ratshooting in and out of cattle
with a sub 12 ft/lb airgun - and this may be the last SnyperCat ratshooting video for
a while as the cows have gone out to the fields, so make the most of it.
