Hunting, The Lithuanian Way
Gediminas Vaitiekunas is a hunter through and through. He is Chairman of one of four hunting associations in Lithuania who fights for hunters rights! This is a wonderful insight into how this successful businessman discovered hunting quite late in life but has experienced hunting whales, bears, wolves as well as deer and moose! Keen to preserve traditions as well as ensuring he passes his skills on to his son, this was a fascinating 30mins. Enjoy.
Charles Smith - Jones - Author and wildlife management expertWe are joined by Charles Smith-Jones, an all round countryside man who specialised in wildlife management after completing a full military career in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Charles is the author of four countryside pursuit books which I recommend to all our listeners. They are packed with useful information and accompanied by a large library of photographs. Well worth having one, or more, on your coffee table!
Nigel Sampson - Founder of Holme Farmed VenisonA Yorkshireman who fell in love with deer whilst working on the Isle of Jura, Nigel is playing a key role in the countryside pursuit arena by bringing game meats to the general public. His passion for farming and game has enabled him to create a professional nationwide distribution network of game meats into retailers, the public, supermarkets and hospitality sectors alike. We need more people like Nigel to champion the sustainability of British game.
