Kent county cricket captain Rob Key goes pigeon shooting with world champion shooter George Digweed. Game chef Mark Gilchrist is riding shotgun (literally) with Andy 'Crow Man' Crow on a combine harvester looking out for rabbits. And Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam is having a hard time finding a fallow buck amid a sea of fallow does. With a week to go until the grouse shooting season starts, this is the cream of British shooting sports for you: pigeons in the wheat cut, fallow bucks and pigeon glut.
Pigeon Shoot starts at 13:40 George Digweed is pushing his skills to the limit this week by shooting pigeons on a flight line. He's set-up his hide inside the woodland next to a maize field and the birds are "up-there". There are plenty of tips and jokes as George once again proves to be simply an amazing shot.
George Digweed is looking forward to a better year's pigeon shooting than last year. Where did those birds go? The 22-times world champion clay shooter is talking about his pigeon shooting techniques - and his shooting is out of this world. Meanwhile, we're off to a much-loved pheasant and partridge shoot on chalky downland in Hampshire. It promises driven shooting of the highest quality.
Using milk bottles and frozen pigeons from a previous shoot for decoys, we set up the camo net and were away. with a kill count of 45 pigeons at the end of the day. Pigeon shooting is awesome. I get alot more excitement out of pigeon shooting rather than duck shooting in my opinion.
