Into The Wild

UK Gamekeeping & Hunting with Charlie Jacoby

May 17, 2021

As many of you know, Into The Wild has discussed hunting on the show before & we have discussed bird crime in the UK. It may surprise you to know that I also sometimes get DM's calling me biased due to the guests I have on my show (LOL) SO because of that, I thought, heck, why not talk to a hunter too? So where we go, on this episode I speak with Charlie Jacoby from Fieldsports TV about Gamekeeping & Hunting in the UK.

I took this opportunity to ask Charlie some questions about this topic that either, I don't know about or that I may have a few issues with. From what needs to change in UK gamekeeping to help biodiversity, why burning heather is a thing & what Charlie believes needs to happen in order to put an end to UK bird crime. Not all the answers sat well with me, I challenged where I could & I listened, that's what I ask you to do too.
