Welcome to Fieldsports Britain. Coming up one of the country's top shots. James Bond
is trying out a new double rifle You have heard of the MacNab, but have you heard of
the McDougal. We are shooting birds and catching fish flies tied from their feathers. First
something we are not allowed to do over here in Britain, but we are trying out more and
more over there on the continent and in the States, it is bow hunting. We are out with
top bow hunter Max Hunt.
Bow hunting is big business across America and now Europe. It is banned in half the countries
in Europe - but that's not stopping people buying bows and arrows and heading off to
the other half in search of a whole new hunting experience. To give you a taster of what it's
all about, one of the best bow hunters in Europe has agreed to teach us all about it,
on one of the best hunting estates in Europe, at one of the most exciting times of year.
First up - the incredibly named Max Hunt. He's not just a renowned bow hunter - this
great Dane is a carpenter turned professional hunter, sporting journalist, writer, lecturer
and poster boy - appearing on front covers of magazines, adverts and even the new Sauer
rifles catalogue. He's also got a world record - Holding the Safari Club International record
for a roebuck with the bow.
The challenge in the hunting, that is what I love, but I am still just the guy from next
door. So that is who I am and by the way I am from Denmark.
Next the estate - Gyulaj in South West Hungary has a history spanning centuries but this
now state-owned hunting area is probably best known in recent times for being the location
for Boar Fever, a film which saw Prince Franz Albrecht Öttingen-Spielberg demonstrating
just how quick a Sauer bolt action rifle can be worked.
Finally, the quarry. It's the fallow rut and this is possibly the best place in the world
for fallow deer. They are huge and, during the silly season, their displays of aggression
and calling must rank amongst the most impressive wildlife spectacles anywhere on the planet.
There we have it - so now let's start at the beginning and the bow necessities...and maybe
dispell a few myths at the same time -
We kick off with accuracy and range. Max will only take a shot on animals within 30 metres.
However, it is possible to get arrows grouping at 100 metres. He's so confident he says he
can outshoot most rifle shots at this distance when they're free standing and using open
sights... To add some extra spice he parks his new Land Rover Discovery just a few feet
from the target. He had better get this right.
Actually this is my bow I use for practising and demonstrating how a bow works. For shooting
at a distance like a 100 yards it is not typical for hunting nobody does it and shouldn't do
that, but it is just for showing how the drop of the arrow is and how precise the bow actually
is.
Max knows he's pulled the first shot but the next two show how accurate his Hoyt bow can
be in the right hands.
The second you shoot you know where you are at. It is kind of funny and I know I missed
that one. So that was a mistake by me though in the second I shot I felt I was way too
far on the left, but the other two after we had the first grouping in the bottom, I changed
the site and turned it up to the left so now actually the grouping is centred so now I
should turn my site back down so that we get the point of aiming and the point of hit in
exactly the same spot. But again this is a grouping at 100 metres so it shows how precise
it actually is to shoot with a bow and there are many other bow shooters who shoot better
than I do.
A target like this offers as much resistance as three red deer standing against each other.
If you have any doubt about the punch behind these razor-sharp arrow heads, think again.
The main difference between hunting with a bow or with a rifle is actually the contact
you have directly to your game. As a rifle hunter it is more about, its still hunting
don't misunderstand that, but you are more shooter with a rifle than you are with a bow
because bow hunting is about hunting it is about your bow skills. It is about knowing
the species, it is about understanding them getting in on them, choosing the right moment
for the right chuck.
We'll come back to the bow a little bit later. Let's get out on to the ground for a different
hunting experience.
Max has already recced the site and he takes us to a valley known to be a favourite haunt
of the fallow deer. As we reach the top of the valley the sound from these hormone-fuelled
animals gets our adrenalin pumping too.
For several generations fallow deer mate here, nobody knows why it is exactly at this spot.
The problem is that if we want to hunt with the bow we need to get even closer. We need
to find a spot as close to the centre as possible.
Because they're all being so vocal we know when we can take our chance to drop deeper
down the slope and find a suitable position that will put us within range.
The first thing I do when I come out is try to figure out where the animals are, try to
read the tracks, stuff like that. But the most important thing is to actually know the
different distances because the animals are very close I don't have the time for measuring
when the animal comes in or is on the rutting place so I find some trees I can recognise
and take the distance so I know the distance. I try to get the animal within 30 metres as
a shot further ahead is not as safe. Now I measured some trees in a line at about 30
so I know that if I hit the animals within the big trees down there they are within 30
metres.
As we sit and wait a young spiker has the nerve to approach a part of slope which we've
noticed is a bit of a no-go area - suddenly we hear a buck we soon refer to as Barry White
telling his does "never going to give you up" in a very deep voice.
Sensing the party has moved elsewhere, Max thinks that we should do the same.
We hear some big stags in the background here, so our plan now is to try and get in and take
a look at them and try to find...... but it is not that easy because it is very dense,
the bush is very dense. We have tried to take a walk around to see if we can get into a
good wind and see if we can find a buck.
We try to be as quiet as possible. The bucks aren't as wary as they would normally be but
our Kryptonite is a cautious doe. We need to keep still for minutes on end until the
alarm dies down.
It has become quite quiet right now. The main reason might be we are at the peak of the
rut right now. That means the fallow have been active all night. So right now the sun
is coming up and it is about 10 o'clock now, they are tired and they are lying down in
the sun to get rest now, but sometimes we hear them still rutting so we try to see where
they are so that we can go to that spot later on when they get up.
Max's prediction rings true and we have a weary buck taking the weight off about 50
metres ahead of us.
He is big. Actually he was too small, especially now that he has gone.
With the heat of the day slowing down our feisty bucks we retreat to the lodge and find
out a little more about this hunting ground, which has produced some world record animals.
Someone comes to hunt from Hungary and chooses July to do hunting then we provide excellent
hunting. Importantly for the 3 main big game species that we have here, the red stags,
the fallow deer of course and the wild boar as well and if someone chooses July then he
will definitely be part of our history to be a part of a territory who owns many world
records regarding the fallow bucks, we have more than 5 world records on the CIC rank
list and we have the Q and SCI world record regarding the wild boar as well. And also
in 2005 we could provide the heaviest antlers regarding the red stags within entire Hungary.
So if someone chooses July then he will experience something more than just shooting with a rifle.
He will be part of the history, he will be part of our history and he will be part of
the Hungarian hospitality in our quality lodges trying out quality food and dishes. Maybe
some good Hungarian wines as well.
Max is one of the first people ever to hunt with a bow here and the estate is opening
it's doors to other kinds of hunters too, especially those who wouldn't normally be
able to enjoy the Gyulaj experience first hand.
We made a special track so we can use a wheel chair to approach the special shooting stands
and the whole idea behind this was that we think that hunting is for everybody.
Back to the ‘bow necessities' and it's part two, the arrow. The observant among you might
have seen the arrow quivering a little in the air. There's a reason for that.
Now you might have noticed as the arrow was leaving the bow it spins around on its own
axis. It is the power of the bow pushing the arrow forward and it takes some time for the
arrow to stabilise in the air. That can be everything depending how powerful the bow
is between 10 and 15, 20 metres and that is actually the reason why the grouping on short
distance can be difficult and the grouping at 25 can be better than at a shorter distance
because it takes time for the arrow to stabilise.
As the temperature drops, we drop into a hide just above the hotspot. This is our first
evening hunt so we don't really know what to expect. We might be lucky and have an animal
come to us.
We spot some bucks again with popstar good looks and an unfazed wild boar. Unfortunately
they are all out of range or behind trees and leaves. The landscape falls silent again
so we have a closer look at this rutting area. Everywhere else is covered in leaf litter
and short grass but here it's been churned up and scraped with a generous sprinkling
of wee.
Max does a full circle ending up back at fallow central and we realise that sitting tight
is going to be the best option - the bucks might drift away but they always come back
to the same spot. Right now there's a big big boy who is setting our pulses racing (though
in a healthy outdoor way).
Haven't seen him yet, but just the sound of hearing him you can hear the very deep voice
of him it must be an old one, hopefully old with a big voice. It is very shocking I haven't
seen him yet.
Actually I am glad we have found him now and I would like to go in there but it is getting
too dark for me now. If we leave him there tonight he will be there tomorrow morning.
So let's go home and get ready for tomorrow morning.
Max is not a stranger to big trophy animals. His SCI record for a roebuck with the bow
was an animal he'd been observing for a while. More than anything, he wanted to show that
well-executed fieldcraft can get you close to a wild animal - in this case 7 metres.
My goal was actually trying to show people what I am capable of doing by stalking and
I went to a guy who had some huge experience of bow hunting and I went there and we went
hunting and I got in on a roe buck on 7 metre on open field gave him a perfect shot and
it was a very, very nice trophy as well. Actually we found out afterwards it was the world record
for a bow and arrow. But actually the whole story was about stalking and making it possible
to get that close.
Arriving back at the lodge, a fellow hunter has shot an impressive buck from a high seat
- with a rifle. Gyulaj has once again delivered a magnificent trophy and Max feels it must
be close to a gold medal. It's a great achievement but Max wonders which of us is actually having
the most fulfilling experience and getting closer to nature in the raw.
Now it is our 3rd day here and actually we arrived with some other hunters here, rifle
hunters and actually we are the only team which hasn't got an animal on the deck yet.
But I think we are the ones who have learnt most about the fallow deer, because we are
the ones who saw the most and by sitting out there and having the animals within 50 metres
or 20 metres sometimes, we learn from them we see how they react. We see from their moves
how they react to different sounds. Some of the other hunters who came here, rifle hunters
experienced hunters as well, they shot them the first morning and the first fallow deer
they saw. By using the time on the species I think you become a better hunter. But that
is not just about bow hunting you can do that with a rifle as well. So taking the time of
being out there and learning from the animals I think that is quite important to become
a better hunter.
Understanding your quarry is vitally important if you want to consider bow hunting. Take
this example of Max shooting a roe deer at 25 metres. Let's slow it down and mark the
top of the back of the animal and highlight the flight of the arrow. Because the sound
of the bow travels faster than the arrow, the roe reacts before the arrow gets to it,
so Max has to shoot 6 inches below the intended target. This is atypical of a roe, but with
bigger species it won't be so exaggerated..
Our next two outings are as incredible as the last. There is no falling asleep in this
environment and, if you do, you always know when they're about. With hearts beating out
of our chests a few shots present themselves but does, foliage and range get the better
of us.
The wildlife spectacle continues. Twice big keilers nearly run into us as we stay low
and still in the undergrowth ... and we even get a chance to see the elusive Barry White
... he's big and old for a reason.
So in the final part of our short series on ‘bow necessities' - that joke will run and
run! - let's talk about the bow itself.
When I go hunting I choose a 70lb bow. The lb means the effort I have to put on the bow
to draw it back. To compare that with something in the shooting industry, I would compare
it to 300 Winchester Magnum, because I can take the same species with 70lbs that most
hunters do with a 300 Winchester. But many people cannot draw 70lbs so it is not necessary
to use a 70lb bow, because I know people who shoot 45 and 50lb bows who still penetrate
red stags at 20, 25 yards. It is not about the draw weight, it is about where you put
your arrow.
It's our last outing and the pressure is on. Every inch of this ground and the animals
on it are now comfortingly familiar. The fallow bucks have become more than just quarry. We
are studying them, trying to understand them, watching their wonderful behaviour in this
glorious Hungarian classroom. We even feel on first name terms with Barry and when we
decide that he must be the animal we need to take, he's nowhere to be found.
Actually that is how hunting is, staying out here and being out here. We never know what
we get but still I think it has been a great experience because we saw tuskers we saw big,
big stags, small stags. We saw the behaviour and how they react to each other, I think
I learned a lot again. For me it has been 3 good days of hunting.
Max loves hunting with a bow and this was a chance for us to see what all the fuss is
about. Are there questions about animal welfare? There are always questions about animal welfare.
What we say is don't knock it until you try it. This was the most exciting, raw, challenging,
hunting adventure we have ever filmed for Fieldsports Channel.

Seven years since the hunting ban came into force, opening meets up and down the country
are proving they are prospering despite a law that aims to stop them. According to a
survey of 123 hunts by the Countryside Alliance, 30% of them think they have more subscribers
than they did before. Nearly 30% of hunt supporters clubs have increased in size. Meanwhile, 85.2%
of hunts offer a fox control service for farmers.
BASC will have a new chief executive from March 2013. Richard Ali replaces retiring
John Swift. A food business professional, Richard Ali stood for the Conservative party
in Burnley as a candidate in the 2010 election.
A UK government committee has turned its attention to wildlife. The Environmental Audit Committee
says Wildlife protection law in the UK is a mess after being patched up too many times.
The Law Commission is currently consulting on placing wildlife laws into a single statute.
One lucky guy has made the catch of a lifetime - hauling in a 427-pound yellowfin tuna that
is set to make him US$1 million richer. It beats the previous record of 405lb. It was
caught last month off the coast of Baja, Mexico after a 50-minute battle - and if confirmed
as a record - the massive fish earns American angler Guy Yocom $20,000 a year for 50 years
from hook maker Mustad.
And finally, a world record has fallen to Italian trickshooter Raniero Testa. As a promotion
for Winchester shotguns, he has become the first person to throw 12 clays into the air
and shoot each of them individually before they land. He beats American Tom Knapp, who
did the same for Benelli shotguns with 10 clays. Click on the screen to watch the whole
film.

Next we are off to Sussex for some feather and fin action. It is the McDougal Challenge.
You often hear about farms diversifying but here in East Sussex there's a shoot that's
offering more than the average pheasant day.
The Ashbourne estate is blessed with some stunning gin-clear spring-fed lakes bursting
with trout so to make the most of his 100 acres, owner Douglas Chalmers has created
a very special challenge.
We do a thing called a McDougal which is the challenge, a bit like MacNab in Scotland,
but a down market MacNab where you have got to get a cock pheasant, shoot where you like,
but get a cock pheasant and over lunchtime you have got to tie a pheasant tail nymph
fishing fly from the tail feather from the bird you shot and then you have got to catch
a fish with the fly that you tied from the bird that you shot. And people tend to love
that bit of fun. It is only for half a dozen people so it is quite intimate.
The McDougal has been around for about six years and out of the 300 or so who have attempted
it only about 20 can claim to be a McDougaler and not a McFailure. The group here today
are making their second attempt. They were the last visitors last season and the first
visitors this season.
You have got be alive at lunch time with a cock bird to your credit.
Hen birds are allowed of course but the challenge focuses the mind. Ground game are not allowed
so this fox escapes through the line.
The second drive gets another gun off the blocks. The third is right next to the lakes
where they will be fishing this afternoon. One pheasant gets an early bath but a lovely
retrieve by Cassie ensures another gun has something to tie a fly with.
Let's get a quick update on who is still to shoot a cock pheasant.
We have got Tom in the red shirt over there, he has got 4 cock birds already, we have got
Nick who has got a cock bird and we have got Christopher who has got a cock bird. We have
got John who is the host today and the other Tom without. So hopefully after the next drive
they will all be ready for lunch and tying flies. That is about the size of it so far.
Lots of competition.
In the shadow of Tent Hill where King Harold pitched camp before the Battle of Hastings,
the guns complete another drive but this one has been fruitless. Time for a quick breather
and refresher before the last drive and a chance to speak to gamekeeper Roy.
He thinks Asbourne is a special place and is proud of being able to offer a truly mixed
bag.
It is what I call my heaven on earth. It is the closest thing I could ever think to, if
there is a heaven this has got to be it. I do think people tend to find that they want
something different that is not just about big bag shoots and of course very few people
tie a fly. If they are fishermen they might have tied a fly, if they are shooters they
might not, you get a bit of everything. They get to tie a fly, they get to take the fly
home. If they catch a fish they get to take the fish home. So you have got surf and turf
on your doorstep haven't you?
After a morning's shooting there are 13 birds - plenty for all guns to have a go at fly
tying - but in every class there's always one and Tom has brought a back-up just in
case he didn't shoot a bird - he's got some peacock feathers....
Just take 3 or 4 or 5 it doesn't matter strands out.......
After a hearty lunch it's nice to let the food settle with some intense concentration.
The expression on their face when they catch a fish with a fly they have tied when they
have never tied one before. That is fantastic. That is like seeing a kiddy in a chocolate
factory. You just can't get it. It is fantastic. That is why they come back.
Tuition is supplied by Douglas who talks them through the fly tying -after about half an
hour all the guns, now rods, have something to be proud of.
We had one person about 5 years ago who tied a fishing fly and said it looked like a bumble
bee had never cast a line in his life and he caught a trout first cast. So even I am
surprised with these, these days.
The lake beckons and there is a real sense of competition. John and his brother Nick
enjoy shooting and fishing and think the McDougal is a great way of spending a sporting day.
It is very much a day focused on the challenge as opposed to just a high number of birds
or whatever. I think it is the combination and the idea that you are actually aiming
for something. We are all fairly competitive people so put all that together and it is
a good combination.
We have got some guys with us who haven't done much game shooting or fishing before.
It is a really good introduction and as you have seen we have got the place to ourselves
today. So no one is worried about making a fool of themselves and for people on a budget
as well. Compared to some of the shooting on offer, it is a really good fun day and
good value too.
Within 10 minutes John hooks a trout. Roy is on standby but doesn't assist. This fish
has to be landed solo otherwise it won't be classed as a McDougal - Well done John! - Although
he doesn't know it yet his fly will be taken off and presented to him at tea in a glass
paper weight.
This really is a shoot with a difference - big bags it ain't but for a group that wants some
fun and to try something outside their comfort zone but within the comforting scenery of
East Sussex it's a must.
If you want to attempt to join the elite group of people who can proudly call themselves
an Asbourne McDougaler then drop Douglas a line dougchalmers@aol.com or visit AshbourneCountry.com
to see all the other sporting fun he offers.
Next week, we are going the whole hog - not just a McDougal but a full-blown MacNab. Now
for something a little different. It's Bond
There is a really good page on Wikipedia, which exhaustively lists every firearm James
Bond has ever used. It's a roll call of groovy guns from the SPAS-12 through the Dragunov,
Glock, and Heckler & Koch to the better known Uzi and AK47. There is only one sporting gun,
however - the Holland & Holland Royal used in the film Moonraker.
But now there's another. And I am in London to meet its creator.
Stuart that is probably the best advertising you could get in the world isn't it?
I think we were very, very lucky to be featured in the Bond film. It is one of those things
you never really expect it to happen, I mean watching Bond when I was younger and then
suddenly. I never even dreamed ever to have a gun in a Bond film. It is incredibly exciting
and at times I still have to pinch myself a bit about things. We will see, I haven't
seen the movie yet. From what I understand it is used for a long duration during it when
he is defending Skyfall itself which is his father's estate. So it is going to be really
exciting and I look forward to seeing it on the big screen.
Now come on you must have paid them a couple million £ to get the rifle in there.
Absolutely 3 to 4 million. No actually what happened was, again we were very lucky. One
of the armourers came to the store. He was looking around Mayfair because obviously there
are Purdys, Hollands, William Evans, William & Son, Beretta. So there are number of gun
makers here and they came by and they were looking around and said do you do double rifles,
we said we did. One of the gentlemen came down and had a look, went back and had a few
more meetings with a few other people and eventually they came through and said we would
be really interested in doing some work with that. There is no other way to put it that
is what happened really.
Did you feel like you were being cast.
I don't know whether I felt like I had been cast, but it was definitely, I don't know
what I felt. It was more let's wait and see if it actually happens first. I think that
is what it came down to and when Greg Williams book Skyfall, Bond on Set, which is the filming
of Skyfall came out and there is Daniel Craig sitting on the front cover holding the 500
Nitro next to an Aston Martin DB5 that was very exciting and from that it is .. we have
had a lot of people enquiring. A lot of people knew about us before, but we have been known
more as the professional's choice. We make guns to be used in the field. These are guns
that if you have got a professional hunting career you want something that is reliable
and accurate. That has been our market so far. But I think the Bond film brought to
a lot of people's attention the fact that we are out there, we are affordable and at
the same time we do have a reliable gun on the market.
So, Bond is back. Skyfall is in cinemas now. The story goes that the much-loved gun expert
and Shooting Times columnist Geoffrey Boothroyd wrote to Ian Fleming in the 1950s suggesting
that the Beretta 418 Bond had in Dr No was a bit flimsy and suggesting the Smith & Wesson
Centennial Airweight as long as it came with the Berns Martin triple draw holster. Fleming,
who had little interest in guns, said yes but should Bond use an automatic? Boothroyd
reluctantly suggested the super-light Walther Polizeipistole Kurz, originally built in 1929,
and now known universally as the Walther PPK. Imagine Geoffrey's horror when Bond turned
up in From Russia with Love with a Walther PPK drawn from a Berns-Martin holster. However,
imagine his delight when he learned that Q's real name is Major Boothroyd.

The British Government may not have a love affair with guns, but Bond does and Bond works
for the British Government.
Now from the wold of spies, let's emerge into the light. It's Hunting YouTube.
This is Hunting YouTube, which aims to show the best hunting, shooting and fishing videos
that YouTube has to offer.
JoergSprave is magnificent. He runs the Slingshot Channel which brings the humble cattie to
a new level. In this film, he is using the catapult equivalent of a Charlie Gustav to
launch a 25mm ball bearing at up to 69 metres per second. And boy is he popular. His channel
has had 22 million views to date, about the same as the Two Ronnies at their peak.
My Pronghorn Antelope Hunt by DMinor214 starts out as a road movie starring an American guy
with an attractive girlfriend who laughs at his jokes driving through the rain for hours
and hours to get to public hunting lands in Oklahoma in the USA. At 20 minutes long, well,
we might have cut it back to three minutes, but it is compelling, moving in places, and
shows a lot about hunting on public lands, pronghorn antelope and even acceptable behaviour
from girlfriends that you don't get in other films.
Pheasant and duck shooting is TweedsandPheasants headcam film of a syndicate day in Gloucestershire.
Love it when his dog Holly runs in and he turns off the sound to save the viewer from
the swearing.
And here is a sensible tourist board. Visit Norway has put out this film to attract tourists.
Go Fishing in Norway is a series of shots of happy sea anglers, set to music. Looks
lovely.
For faultless fishing filming, we turn to AnAngler, better known as the natural history
filmmaker Hugh Miles. Working for a local wildlife trust and punching well above his
weight, he has produced a 15-minute epic about the River Allen in Dorset, one of the finest
chalkstreams in Britain, showing not just fishing but its stunning diversity of wildlife.
The film truly deserves its title which is ‘Liquid Gold: A Celebration of Chalk Streams'
Now to airguns and Theoben1972 sends us this film called Theoben Mfr 177 Cal Trajectory.
It's a useful look at mapping airgun pellet trajectory from 10 yards to 50 yards.
Canadian YouTube user DragonoftheEastblu suggests ‘Air Rifle Hunting Pesting 19'. The film
is by MrFYRGuy5 who really hates it when squirrels dig holes in his yard. As he says: "It's not
much lawn, but I like to keep it nice."
Finally, viewer Jon R sends us Air Rifle hunting - Farm Yard Vermin control 2 by VerminSniperUnit.
There are a lot of feral pigeons getting shot in this film but a lot of story about how
and why. Gerdunk - recommended. VerminSniperUnit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVzCuaEb3cY
You can click on any of these films to watch them. If you have a YouTube film you would
like us to pop in to the weekly top eight, send it in via YouTube, or email me the link
charlie@fieldsportschannel.tv
well, if you like shooting you will love the Shooting Show.
This week is episode 25 and the Byron Pace is in Africa with a group that has three croc
permits on the River Chobe, and only two days left to fill them. With the waters of the
river high, it's not going to be easy. To get a sure shot that anchors the croc and
ensures good practice, the hunters must drift in dangerously close. On the gun review front,
Byron looks at the Mauser M03 which has features including a switch-barrel design and an integrated
safety and cocking mechanism. And news this week covers the badger cull, the state of
UK wildlife law and responses to the Royal Mail firearm consultation. If you are watching
this on YouTube, click on the link to go to the show.

This has been Fieldsports Britain. Next week, we're on a national Macnab, from stags in
Cornwall to glorious grouse in Yorkshire to fish in the rivers in northern Scotland, and
all of it in a Ferrari.
