With Shooting Show regular David Virtue as our host, we have not one but two morning flights of geese in store. For the first, we get all old-fashioned for the second week running as we see how a man with a century-old muzzleloader fares on geese. Then on day two we do things the orthodox way with breech-loaders, and take the chance to experiment with several kinds of decoy. It’s fast-flying, goose shooting success experienced in a number of ways.
Down south, Paul Childerley has a stalking guest with distinction: NGO vice-chairman Geoff Garrod. It’s two gamekeepers out on a foot-stalk, with a Chinese water deer buck the intended quarry. Geoff has previously stuck to the high seats and has never before been on a guided stalk, so we’re eager to see how the shooting supremo gets on on foot.
And as today is Armistice Day, we end the show by remembering those British and Commonwealth forces who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
