Peter Carr, Editor of Sporting Rifle Magazine
We catch up with Peter Carr at the Game Fair 2019 to create our first ever podcast. Peter must have spent his entire life involved in game pursuits. From errant schoolboy out pigeon shooting instead of attending classes, to gamekeeper, to the Sporting Rifle editor and host of the Shooting Show, not to mention active roles in conservation especially in Africa, Peter has done it all – in fact still is! In this podcast we chill out and chat about his life, his thoughts on the issues facing the industry today and what he thinks we can do to put a positive light on our passions.
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.
