Coming up: This is where the pheasant and the muntjac come from, and I'll be looking for both of them. I'll be visiting one of the factories in Cina that make all the kit we use to attract pigeons crows and ducks First, I'm going to this paradise island to look for deer, goats and rabbits So here's the story. In 2011, we carry a news report saying that the first man in China to own land is a petrochemicals millionaire who has bought a lease on an island near the city of Ningbo where, instead of opening a casino or a shopping centre, he opens a hunting reserve, and this in a country where it is widely believed that hunting is banned. Well, Erik van der Horst gets in touch with us to say he is based in Ningbo and would we like to go? I push in front of David, Roy, Mark, Crow, Dom and everyone else, and say yes please. 18 months later, I am at a ferry terminal that may not be up to much but the boat itself is Chinese industrialist class. So we've left the Chinese mainland behind us and we are heading for we don't know what. But this is the birthplace of Chinese hunting - something that's been banned along with guns since 1949. Here, it's not only tolerated it's quite possibly legal. Let's find out. It's a half-hour air-conditioned whiz over the water past dazzling James Bond scenery. We come into port and, if you listen carefully, you can hear them say it: "The plane, boss, the plane". We land, we round a corner and there is the hotel. The following morning, we are up early to go stalking. Rosy-fingered dawn is spectacular. The potential for hunting less so. Erik spots a herd of goats or, as he disparagingly calls them, sheep. I reckon we will have about three to four hour stalk up to the sheep you just filmed. By the sounds of it we have got quite an experience and quite a good stalk. As far as I understand we will call in the sheep when we get near. It will be something like "sheep, sheep, sheep, sheep" at which point they will all come running in and we have got about ten minutes to shoot them. Just ten minutes. Probably ten minutes, yes. The gamekeeper hands out the firearms to Erik me and to Mr Yang, a Chinese industrialist. The 12-bore shotguns are marked with the word Ying - there: Yang with Ying - though it's hard to know if Ying is the make of the gun or its dynasty. We will use three-shot cartridges, whatever we are shooting at: deer, goats, rabbits or pheasants. It is indeed a long walk in to the goats. There is plenty of sign of muntjac but the undergrowth is so thick, you would have to be a muntjac to get close to them. We reach the farm animals. Erik and the gamekeeper stalk forward. The goats turn out to be too quick for Erik. Maybe this is not going to be easy after all. And Erik is cross about another gap between European and Chinese hunting cultures. It is a great and interesting stalk, but I am not going to shoot a goat at 50 metres or more with a shotgun. We will give it to our Chinese friend Another complaint Erik has is the speed at which the Chinese stalk Fastest stalk I've ever done in my life When I take over the gun, I slow the pace down significantly. However, apart from the bark of deer and the occasionally crashing noise, I see nothing. By 9am, the temperature has reached 30 degrees centigrade and the game is lying doggo, but at least the gamekeeper is keeping something - his sense of humour. We head for the hotel, where I ask Mr Yang what he thinks of the morning. He says there are not too much game in this island. Here the hunting is forbidden at night. But if we go out at night we may hunt some deers. I also want to know what the Chinese think of shooting and hunting - and do they enjoy it? He says in China people are only hunting on islands, Gobi Desert and forests. Ok and what kind of animals do they hunt in China? In northern part of China and eastern China, people hunt bears, and in Mongolia people hunt wolves. And for him is it about the hunting or eating the food afterwards or the whole thing. That is important for us to understand. People go hunting just for fun and you know that guns are illegal in China, so people who are interested in them just due to their interest. Throughout our trip to China, we were unable to find out whether hunting is really banned. Certainly, gun ownership carries a stiff prison sentence in some provinces, but plenty of people own guns, and some we met own them with the permission of the police. Look at the London 2012 Olympics. The Chinese won more medals in the shooting events than any other country. As you can imagine, Erik has strong views about the hunting - and about what he would do if he were running the gaff. At the end of our walk I actually had the feeling that what we did may actually have been wrong for the Chinese way. So what they do is they walk so fast and basically they bump into animals. They march the animals down. Where we now had to compromise with too many people and of course the stalker behind us chopping away on branches. Yes, and I noticed that if we stopped where we might have seen a muntjac that was a good opportunity to have a cigarette, especially if the wind was behind us. Yes, exactly. Interesting yes. And of course the misfires with the shotgun were absolutely ... you have to cope with a lot. But we are sitting at one end of this beautiful beach, it is not a bad place. Actually I think it is a really, really good place. The sea with the beach. The hotel is sunny and comfortable. I love the food it is really excellent food. I love the fact that you eat what you shoot immediately. Yes that is really good. Brilliant. And to be honest if they would buy two dogs and a buttalo call That would make all the difference. Absolutely. Actually I think it could be a really good mix. On the one hand for the Chinese people with the bunnies and the goats and on the other for Western people who have more stalking experience, but they need to learn a lot. They need to learn about muntjac stalking. Shall we go back in for a cheeky rice wine? Um that might be a very good idea. And perhaps take a surf later. Late afternoon before dinner we head off again, this time after bunnies which we have seen near the hotel and look suspiciously un-nervous. Our new Chinese friend limbers up by practicing on a nearby flag pole. It is only a few yards and we come upon a rabbit. Another 20 yards and blow me another rabbit lurking behind some rushes, but otherwise oblivious to our presence. Erik shoots, misses then goes to see if he can flush it out. It is wild enough to have gone into hiding. Further up the path, it's my turn to shoot and bring down another mighty rabbit. Well I can't show you too much, but two man team from Europe is one all versus China at the moment. As well as the rabbits, the island offers Chinese bayberries. These are really, really nice. With the scores running even, Mr Yang edges ahead with first one rabbit, and then another - but after we have one each, Erik and I are not quite so keen on the sporting side of Chinese rabbit shooting. The Chinese may have a lot to learn from us about shooting - but we have plenty to learn from them about eating. Everything we shot or caught on our trip we ate immediately, meat, feet, guts, backbone and all - and I might have come home smelling like a Chinese restaurant but it was delicious. Food for the Chinese is a social event that takes place three times a day. Whenever possible, it involves beer, rice wine and French brandy. Here's Mr Yang showing his skills as a calligrapher, writing Fieldsports Channel in Chinese - literally "hunting the weird". If the hordes sweep in from the East, this is our new logo. Then Mr Yang, partly fuelled by rice wine, shows how he will disable Erik when that day comes. The Golden Sand Bay Hunting Resort is expensive, but much of the cost is tied up in the price for hiring the boat. One night there comes to �200 a person, including ferry, bed, board and two outings shooting. Also, the price goes up significantly once the manager decides you are rich. If you want to find out more and you either speak Mandarin or you don't mind Google Translate's version, have a look at nbhaiyang.com Another hunting resort advertising in China is the Oriental International Hunting Park in Shanxi province, west of Beijing. Visit East-Hunt.com What do you reckon? I am not sure. Do you think shoot it anyway? Give it a try. Ok and now it's over to David on the Fieldsports Channel news stump. [Music] This is Fieldsports Britain News. The Netherlands has 300,000 greylag geese. The environment department of a Dutch university says that 380,000 geese need to be gassed over the next five years to bring that number down to 100,000. It costs around 18 euros to gas each goose. Holland banned goose shooting in 1981, except under licence. Our government says well when you hunt them the next problem you are going to have is what are you going to do with those animals and that is more or less one of the reasons that I wrote a book about it. How do you get it back in the food circuit. And you can watch more of that interview by clicking on the link. Now, Swiss MPs have voted against a ban on stray cat shooting. They rejected a motion to outlaw the cat hunt. The Swiss Government says there are around 1.5 million stray cats in Switzerland and it points to a British study which shows that cats kill 15 birds each per year. Staying with cats. A woman from Indiana in the USA who shot what she thought was a bobcat that had been attacking her own cats was surprised when it turned out to be a leopard. The owner of a local wildlife rescue centre that specialises in big cats denies that it is his.
