Fieldsports Britain – YouTube stars go shooting and fishing

Fieldsports Britain – YouTube stars go shooting and fishing

[Music] Welcome to Fieldsports Britain. Coming up
we are fishing for sharks, for trout and for foxes. Roy Lupton is in a town centre where
he is calling them in with the sound of a hot vixen and the smell of a hot Doner kebab. Have a got something in my teeth? I’m fishing off Australia. Remember Jaws?
Well the same thing in old age and with dentures. First the X Box generation they are putting
away their imaginary farms and picking up the real thing. But First we are getting them
to catch their lunch. Question 1 – how do we get the yoof of today
interested in hunting shooting and fishing..? Question 2 – how do they spread that interest?-
well actually we use these guys – IF they have a good time with us today
fishing for their lunch and shooting for their pride and learning a few things about ballistics.
THEN they will tell their audiences. And I mean audiences. These five lads get more than
28 million views a month on their YouTube channels. Just to give you an idea what that
means, the biggest TV show in the UK, Britain’s Got Talent, gets only half that at its peak. Instead of putting themselves through the
Simon Cowell strainer, they simply play Call of Duty, FIFA and Minecraft in their bedrooms,
they then post those films and vlogs on YouTube. In their bedrooms! Like some kind of insane
parent, Fieldsports Channel is now going to drag them out of the darkness and into the
light… Today is going to be sick. Oh yes – you can call us Snoopp Fieldsportsy Fieldsports. Before connecting with these lads I need to
get ready to connect with a fish which involves some old technology. Which still does the
trick – more by luck than good management. Proof there are fish in Bewl Water, here in
the South-East of England. Having set the bar high, the lads are split
up and sent off with the likes of Andy and Mark for a morning’s fishing. We’re hoping
for great things. Marky Mark are you going to catch us our lunch
then? Am I? Hopefully yes. What is on the menu? Well if we don’t catch anything I have got
packets of Quavers for everyone. Because I thought it would be quite funny if everybody
had to eat packets of Quavers staring at Charlie who has already put a pike back. Unfortunately Mark doesn’t seem to have luck
on his side today and it’s down to Baby Crow to show him how it’s done – on his first cast.
The brown trout keep coming – but they are not for eating. We want rainbows. Not all the gamers are falling in love with
fishing – some are getting too close to the water. Unfortunately we only have one chance
to make a first impression. Back on the jetty we do have some fish for
the bbq – Callum and Toby have landed a fish each. We have something to go with the quavers! It was really good. I always thought fishing
was quite boring and then I tried it and yes. Fin slapped again. Yes I did enjoy myself, it was good fun even
though I didn’t catch anything it was good fun. It is not as easy as it looks and you
have to have a lot of patience. And luck. It is beginners luck. Yeah, that’s right. There is no skill in it.
It was just luck they had. But we didn’t have any luck today. I will be back later don’t
you worry. I will definitely be back. We head en-masse to Andy’s where the lads
first have a chance to shoot air rifles – and a couple of shotguns on loan from York Guns.
There’s a pump action Mossberg 12-bore and a silenced Mossberg .410. It is good when you hit it. There’s also an opportunity to shoot at some
explosive targets on a car door with a .243 rifle. Today is about lots of safe play with a hint
of education – How often do you see characters shielded from bullets by a car in Call of
Duty?- we want to show these lads that guns real guns need to be treated with care – they
can pierce a lot more than a bit of metal. That was an incredible, incredible feeling.
I have experienced it so many times in a virtual world so to be able to do it for real life,
it is an amazing feeling to do it and I thank Fieldsports immensely for letting me have
the opportunity to try it. Well thank you for coming. But we worry in
shooting that you are a bit detached from shooting because you are doing it virtually. Shooting a gun for the first time it is just
an incredible feeling. I can’t really describe it. Come back and do it again. Absolutely. Mark’s also playing with bits of metal. Having
forgotten the grill, we borrow some of Andy’s sheep fencing for the firebowl. So what’s
Mark rustling up for us today? It is very nice fish actually I was really
quite impressed with the quality of fish we got. So we scaled it but haven’t done a brilliant
job because we are out here in a field and what we are going to do is, hopefully that
will mean people will be able to eat the skin, we are going to wrap this up in a parcel and
we are going to let it steam in its own juice. It’s been a busy but enjoyable day – so what
sort of impression have we made on these lads. How are your ears. This one is ringing like made. I can’t really
hear much right now. You have got ear defenders you could be using. I should be using ear defenders. If you are
coming here to do this. Definitely use ear defenders Are you enjoying it? I am loving it. I am absolutely loving it.
It is my first time clay pigeon shooting. I also went fishing earlier today which was
also quite cool. I really love the shooting. Which would you come back to do next? Both, can I do both? I want to do both. Liam is a COD king, a Call of Duty pro. So
what is it all about. Kills, objective, win. So you are out to shoot naughty terrorists
and get a flag. Flag, yes or blow something up. That is what
I normally go for, I normally go for objective rather than kills, so if you run somewhere
and you die lots of times you get that position and that is fine. So this is the first time you have been shooting. Yes, I have never fired a gun before. And what did you think? I was a bit sceptical. I was a bit like, I
don’t know how this is going to go, will I be able to do it or not and then I had the
clay pigeon I shot on my first shot and I was like ok fair enough I might actually be
able to hit something and then from there I was getting more and more shots on. It is
definitely different to playing on an X Box. You have got to hold a controller on an X
Box whereas you have actually got to hold the gun. All right so which of the two would you come
back and do? What fishing or shooting. Definitely the shooting.
It is much funner than the fishing. Callum joined us last year for the shooting
and he’s hungry for more – so having had a good time can we rely on him to preach to
the masses on our behalf? Do you reckon you can explain shooting sports
to them? Yes, I could if there was the odd ignorant
person who doesn’t really understand it I reckon I could win them around if that is
a good thing. Our viewers get really worried about this
that shooting is rather marginalised and nobody knows about it and you are the kind of person
that can do it. That makes you in our A fodder. Yes, as I said I think it would be pretty
easy to win someone around especially someone my age because they would be able to understand
it a little bit better. May be it would be quite hard to win somebody a little bit older
over. Sorry! A git like me? No comment. What would you do to them. Many, many things. Tell me. Too rude. Tell me. Ok. Right … Ok shooting which is going on all around us
is not what it is like on Black Opter. Or is it? No that bullet went straight through that
car and in COD you can hide behind things, unless you have got FMJ on it like taps you
on the shoulder and you can walk off. Real life, I can’t imagine a shotgun bullet hitting
me in the chest whereas in Call of Duty they sponge it, run off and kill you. We think it’s been a successful day. We’ve
done some myth busting and given some lads who know so much about guns in the virtual
world and virtually nothing about them in the real world a taste of proper fishing and
shooting. That is quality. We hope their enthusiasm will rub off on their
millions of fans. It only remains to say thank you to everyone
who helped – each of them great ambassadors for fieldsports and one who shows he can still
cook up a feast on stock fencing. Well there you are the generation we need
to reach. They really get it. Now somebody who doesn’t get it, David on the Fieldsports
Channel News Stump. [Music] This is Fieldsports Britain News. Wood pigeons and now clay pigeons are being
held responsible for ruining crops. Organisations such as the NFU and the Red Tractor are urging
guns not to shoot clays over standing crops of rape seed. Pitch is used as a binder in
their manufacturing. Even small amounts can cause major contamination and is costing the
UK vegetable oil industry millions of pounds to deal with. Big game hunting in the Australian outback
could become a new tourist attraction. Under the scheme which would allow shooting the
likes of camels and water buffalos. Feral animals would be shot and killed by game hunters
travelling to the Australian outback under a conservation hunting plan. Put forward by
the shooters and fishers party. They are preparing to field candidates around the country in
the federal elections. One of our good friends in Ireland, Philip
Lawton has died. Commentator, organiser and one of the faces of the great game fairs of
Ireland, Philip is known to game fair goers at Shanes Castle and Birr Castle for staring
as the policeman in a never ending quest to capture a poacher. He will be missed. British police want to quadruple the price
of gun licenses. Because the system is so bureaucratic a five year firearm or shotgun
certificate should cost �200 instead of the current fee of �50. Shooting organisations
have asked the police to reduce red tape instead. You could win a customised airgun thanks to
Fieldsports Channel viewer Craig Smallman. It is being raffled for the army charity,
Walking with the Wounded. The prize is based on the Theoben rapid and is in .2 calibre.
Find out how to enter the competition on the forum. New website and Facebook pages to look out
for this week. Greg Willings has started Countryman’s and Vermin HQ on Facebook is
for anyone involved with vermin control. Give them a click. Now do you remember this advertisement for
Virgin Atlantic. Well her son, Prince William, is now advertising a British fishing tackle
company. He was pictured supporting a cap made by Greys. Part of Northumberland based
Hardy and Greys. The company has a long history of supplying fishing tackle to the royal family.
Including William’s father the Prince of Wales who is a keen fisherman. And finally it has been a week for old animals
to learn new tricks. A black bear has learnt how to break into trucks and this cheeky killer
whale is using a free meals on reels service. It follows anglers off Alaska and when it
sees a fish being hauled in it nicks it. Here it is nabbing a halibut. You are now up to date with Fieldsports Britain
News. Stalking the stories. Fishing for facts. [Music] Thank you David. Nice tan. Now let’s go and
see what the world is up to this week. It is Hallo Charlie. [Music] Here is what the world is up to this week. Hallo Charlie. KPS Hunters here. Today we
are on a new rabbit, but … Craig David. Hallo Charlie. Brian here in Alberta Canada
enjoying the black bear and mosquito season. Hallo Charlie. It is Paul Downing here in
Cork Ireland. Just doing some day time fox calling with your permission. So here are
the results. Here is Charlie for Charlie. See you again soon. Send us your own Hallo Charlie. Film yourself
on your mobile phone. Just a sentence saying Hallo Charlie, who you are and what you are
up to.Then share it or email it via Youtube, Facebook, Dropbox, or Yousendit, Younameit
to [email protected] Next up urban commando Roy Lupton is out foxing
in a town. Let’s see how many he can find round the back of the bins. [Music] Today we’re off for a bit of urban fox fishing
– We know how big the problem is, but let’s use it to our advantage. No rifle today. Roy
has a Western Rivers fox call on test with 400 howls, screeches and love noises on it.
So what works best? Our first port of call is behind a housing
estate in Maidstone, in the South-East of England. Roy puts the call up in a tree and he starts
with a rodent distress – we don’t want to upset the neighbours – but it’s the sexy vixen
that brings our fox out into the open. The fox came walking out not more than 25
yards away giving us the perfect opportunity of a shot with a shotgun or a rifle. They
obviously wouldn’t be using that here, but I am pleased with that one. We will move on
and see if we can find a big boy. It’s a good start but before it gets dark
we want to try a bit of waste ground behind more housing and a park near the hospital.
There are no foxes but plenty of jackdaws and crows. Remember you can’t shoot crows
on the call…so don’t get any ideas.!!! After a cuppa our summer evening entertainment
commences with a golf course on the way back into town. Our call might be a mashy, nibbling
kind of a call, but the call is on top of the car so we’re a bit obvious. So we started off with a territorial fox caller
and we didn’t get any call backs or any response from that so I then went back to the vixen
that has been mated and all of a sudden we got a response from way off and the fox came
right back in towards us. But unfortunately I think it picked up the reflection from the
light from the camera on David’s face. So it saw something here that it didn’t like
and was watching for a little while and didn’t want to come any closer. Where it was it was
probably 70, 80 yards away. So with a rifle, in superb range for shooting. It just tucked
off into the woods there because it could see the light reflecting from the camera.
But again working superbly. This is all well and good but we need to turn
up the heat a bit and get “proper urban”. To think like a fox we need to eat like a
fox – a kebab calls and we settle down at the back of the local leisure centre to enjoy
our feast… We know that foxes do predate very heavily
on Doner kebabs in this area. So we thought that the arom drifting through the car park
along with the call would probably be a good combination. Ssh need to be very quiet we
are hunting foxes. Look, seriously … I told you it is this kebab. That is the scent of
the kebab. You don’t need a call, just a big fat … kebab. Oh man, how many foxes are
there. On a serious note though. It really does just go to show and highlight the problem
of the urban fox. We have got so many around. We are literally just sitting here talking
about foxes and one walks straight in front of the car. Right we will see if we can get
limpy to come back. I am not talking about me. With our hunger satisfied we hang the call
from a tree branch. Within two minutes the clean vixen call does the trick again. We
have two inquisitive foxes. We had the limpy fox which came out and went
past from the smell of the Doner and then we played the caller here and then these two
foxes came in. So we had another pair of foxes come in on the left hand side and with everything
going on it is absolutely amazing how many there are. They both stick around for ages and only start
moving on when some girls walk by. Back on the streets we see more foxes in the
headlights and we’re now in double figures for the night. If only we had that rifle – oh
yes of course urban area. Our last stop but one is the playground. We balance the call
on the railings and settle back to see if anything bites. Here the foxes come in from
all directions. Some are bold, others more cautious. Again, Roy runs a few of the calls.
It is the softer ones that bring our most confident customer in closest. We had a fantastic response yet again. When
you think that all the calls we have done tonight are in probably within a range of
about a mile. So we have hardly travelled anywhere. We are just picking a few little
spots so little kiddies play area, we have had car parks and near the swimming baths
as well. I knew there were a lot of foxes, but what we are seeing tonight is extraordinary.
By doing this we are learning so much about the foxes behaviour. Whereas normally they
start coming in we shoot them the job is done and you don’t get to witness the behaviours.
With this it really is fascinating watching exactly what is going on and you can see the
individuality of the foxes. A couple, one of the foxes came in, wasn’t overly happy
just sort of glancing back and forth in the background. When others will just come in,
sit down and just happily look around. It’s been an amazing three hours and the foxes
are certainly plentiful in this town centre. Our last stop is in a shopping centre car
park. Without fail it generates interest. This confused fox eventually heads off but
then Roy brings it right back to us. That is another limpy fox. Well that was an
amazing couple of hours. Another one came in behind us here you could see it searching
around trying to figure out what was going on looking at the call. So for a shooting
tool if we were shooting in this environment we would have accounted for every single one
which came in. As I say I was expecting to see a lot, but we have seen a lot more than
I thought we were going to come across in a very, very short space of time in a relatively
small area. So the urban fox is alive, well and prospering
– and although a cold kebab will suffice – they like the sound of the traditional dishes too. What an extraordinary number of foxes there
and really just the tip of the glacier mint. Glaciers cold and wet and with that seamless
segway let’s talk about wildfowling guns. Kit Special this week looks at wildfowling
on the website. Guns that help you to unlimited ducks and geese.
Your companion for an early morning on the marsh. Let’s start with this … ejector with
34″ barrel. It is an obsolete calibre so currently does not need a shotgun certificate, but the
… says if you found some old length cartridges you could have it put back on your licence
as it is in good condition with nice wood and a Damascus barrel. The price is �1000. Another fowling piece is this nine bore black
powder percussion muzzle loader with 38″ single barrel. Maker is unknown. Lots of British
towns in the 19th Century had small gun makers and their market was principally local. Especially
game keepers and wildfowlers. Price is �1,200. Finally a super model Winchester Super X3
Camo 12 bore for �859. Synthetic construction designed for the extreme cold that wildfowlers
thrive on it is also a byword for reliability. A pair of these was recently used to shoot
a record day of doves in Argentina. That is it, feast your eyes. Fish into your
pockets. Thanks for watching. This is Kit Special. Now as some of you may of noticed we have
been in Australia recently and on our last morning we were out after sharks. The great
white, the mighty tiger, no the gummy shark. Welcome to Hastings, Australia. It’s a little
different to the Sussex seaside town we know but it is on the coast and there are fish
here… We’ve been promised the chance to hook a gummy shark by a rising hunting star
in Australia, Dave Fent. His Aussie Hunting Adventure series is about to hit the networks
so, before he’s priced out of the market and becomes all lovey on us, his dad Cliff has
offered up his boat for us to go shark fishing with Dave. Well basically today we have come out of the
front of the western entrance and we have got … over here and the mainland back over
here on the other side of us and we have come out chasing gummy sharks and there are few
… getting around as well at the moment. Can you be savaged by gummy sharks? Well they could certainly tear your finger
apart. Oh they will, so they are not that gummy. Not that gummy. We will see if we can get
one for you. The best chance of hooking a gummy, which
Dave assures us are good eating, is during slack water between tides. There is plenty
of prep to be done to get us ready. Just start loading on a few cubes and making
a bit of a trial and the gummies and other fish will pick up on this and start to come
in. In the meantime it’s worth dangling the rod. Our first nibble is a barracuda – one of the
fastest fish in the water and I have always wanted to catch one, armed with some serious
teeth. They are not great eating fish. Most people
use them for bate or pop them back in the water. They are very, very boney. By the time
you have picked out a squillion bones it is not worth eating. What size do they go up to? These things get up to a metre or so 1,200,
quite a bit longer, quite a bit bigger, will give you a good fight when they get to that
sort of size. Then I get a bite and it’s my first ever barracuda. First barracuda. I am not going to pick it
up because I will get myself spined and scragged … mackerel off Sussex, barracuda off Melbourne.
Brilliant. With he assures me a bit of time left before
the gummy fest I ask Dave about his new TV series. We are going to cater for the every day hunter.
We are going to cover deer, foxes, rabbits and goats. All the easy stuff and it is easily
accessible to the Australian public. That is the Aussie hunter’s favourite sort
of fayre is it? Yes. Now alright. May be your show is on your shirt
there Aussie Hunting Adventures TV series. Yes that is right. Stick that into Google. Put it into Google have a bit of a look. Have
a look at our website and our Facebook page. We have got quite a few followers so far.
It has been great. Then something serious grabs one of the lines
and Dave starts working it Well basically we had a larger bait out for
a gummy. A gummy has come up and he has grabbed onto it and now he has taken off and he has
taken some line. So what we will do now is we will pick up the rod, we will tighten up
the drag and then we will let him go a bit and then we will strike him. What they tend
to do sometimes they will turn around and they will start swimming against the current
sometimes they will swim around the front of the boat. Click her off. See if we can
get a bit of line back and find him and there he is. We are in. He is a good fish I would
say. Then another bites. We seems to be bringing
in anything but a gumster. This one is a Port Jackson shark which looks a lot bigger in
the water than it does on deck. Now I hit a leopard shark which sounds a bit
more like it. Leopard shark – very, very fierce. This fish
is almost as long as my hand. But it makes a getaway once it spots me. That was the best release ever. Still no Gummy but Dave is still working what
we hope is now not the ever present but the elusive gummy. Next up is a cuttlefish – then another leopard
shark. This one looks a bit more impressive on deck but we’re all hoping Dave’s biggun
isn’t going to disappoint. After an hour a large shovel nose ray appears – it too gets
a rush of blood when it gets close to the boat and it’s off. There he goes. So we have caught sharks, we’ve seen plenty
of fish but not that der-dum moment. Nevertheless it is a lovely way to relax before heading
to the airport – and home to Britain and doesn’t a sunset over Hasting look pretty. If you want to see a preview of Dave’s programme
follow the link on the screen. From Australia to the rest of the world. It
is Hunting YouTube. This is Hunting YouTube, which aims to show
the best hunting, shooting and fishing videos that YouTube has to offer. So the American gun video maker Colion Noir
makes films for the National Rifle Assoiation – and this week it’s a cracker about Hollywood
hypocrisy. Lots of stars from violent screen epics are calling for increased gun control.
Colion Noir points out a number of anomalies, not least that one of them, Sylvester Stallone’s
latest film is called Bullet to the Head. Staying in the US, Hunting With World Class
Bird Dogs does not show world class pheasant shooting nor particularly spectacular dogwork
but it is artfully made and you may well enjoy it. Next up elk hunting. One of the greats of
the YouTube hunting community is Hushin With LaVere . In Bull Of A Lifetime, he is after
elk, being an American elk or a kind of big red deer, not a European elk, which is what
Americans call a moose. Got it? It’s nicely made though the hunter looks like the Kilroy
cartoon character. Back in the UK for some fishing. EssexAnglingTV’s
episode 12 is out, it’s carp and it includes a 32lber. Max, Tosh and Harry go what they
call �target hunting’ before the fish spawn, and bump into a number of stars of the world
of carp-fishing – Tri-Scale, The Big Lin and Half Tail – who of course are not anglers
but fish. Now to Sweden for a top tip in this snappy
(literally) film from IFish. What to use if you have forgotten your pliers. He says a
stick and he shows you how. There’s a new British channel from sporting
agency Safari Hunting UK that’s based in North Yorkshire but travels all over the world.
They are starting local with a roe deer stalk that ends with a nice right and left at foxes. Now when shooters are not out after birds,
foxes or discussing the semantics cervidae they do good works in the community, especially
in the world of conservation. The UK’s largest shooting organisation BASC has put out a film
called Helping the Dormouse. BASC’s Green Shoots programme links management of land
for shooting with wider conservation projects. In Cheshire, Green Shoots is working with
the Cheshire Wildlife Trust to improve and monitor habitats for the dormouse, which is
not only threatened but very, very cute. Back to shooting and I hope you will enjoy
the singsong voice of the true northerner RJMcleod21 who specialises in hunting, trapping
and fishing around Canada’s Mackenzie River Delta and the Richardson Mountains of the
NorthWest Territories and the Yukon. He is out on a skidoo for his last day spring goose
shooting on a morning he describes beautifully as “one of those times where it almost feels
like you’re still just dreaming” You can click on any of these films to watch

  3. What you guys need to do in those environments put up a call and cage, trap & dispatch. 😉


  5. At 14:58 you said you can't shoot crows on the call. I thought you could, or is i under certain circumstances. Please reply and fill me in as i am just trying to educate myself. Thanks, great show by the way!!!! 🙂

  11. Quality boys quality 🙂
    Ken,Paul & Stu

  12. Thank you for inviting us!

  13. The Xbox generation? Why you stereotyping little….

  14. as a shooter, it really is quite fun!

  15. Where to get that fox call from?

  16. 17:10 The voice depth contrast… Hehe

  17. i love how their trying to get young people involved in shooting, im 18 and trying to convince a landowner that ur not just some dumb kid with a gun is my biggest challenge in this sport.

  18. Good job with the kids. Try converting some of the new immigrants to your country. My wife is from the Philippines and she and her friends are all interested in shooting.

  19. Hi – It's a Western Rivers nite stalker call from Bushwear. You have to put in "electronic caller" to find it on the site

  20. Hi Russell – there's a rule that you can't use a 'sound recording' to call a bird in the UK

  21. Ok, that makes scene. Thanks for replying and putting me right!!!!! 🙂

  22. You cant use a sound recording of a bird, but im pretty sure you can use a digital recording, like one someones made electronically, so its not actually a sound recording of a real/live bird?

  23. Why does Callux upload on every channel but his own

  24. What shotgun cart would you use on a close range fox say 25 yards?

  25. How long did you have in Australia? No opportunity for hunting pigs, goats, or buffalo?

  26. Hi – We were only there for a week – and we stayed close to Melbourne so we could visit Shot Expo…next time though!

  27. Hi – Roy suggests BB's for foxes out to 25 / 30 yards. Beyond that it's time to pick up the rifle.

  28. Oh ok fair enough. Hopefully you made some great contacts for your next trip. If your looking for some Aussie hunting companions give me a bell!!

  29. You want us to be inspired by CoD players?

  30. What caller is used by Roy in the city to call foxes?

    Tx for showing!

  31. the fox at 16:43 was limbing

  32. COD = Childrens Online Daycare
