A fearless look at the ‘disciplining gundogs’ debate, a sneak peek at the best bits of IWA, some interesting news stories, and some cracking hunting Youtube videos...


It’s the scandal that’s rocking the gundog world. If you are training a working dog, how far should you go when it misbehaves? Some gundog trainers say rewards and treats are all a gundog needs. Others say ‘corrective’ training or smacking is the only method that works. The argument has led to an online campaign against one gundog trainer, Christopher Upton. He says that 95% of training should be fun-based – but he has received death threats. We look at both sides of the argument.

Meanwhile, we are at the gun trade show IWA in Germany to see what’s heading for gunshop shelves later this year. There is a whole new calibre, new scopes, binos and lots of clothing. There is News, there is Hunting YouTube – it’s another week in the life of #FieldsportsBritain
