Before the Christmas period I had a marvellous experience shooting woodcock over setters’.

2 | Realtree Camo is my choice when shooting and hunting throughout Europe.

Wearing Realtree camouflage pattern I filmed every aspect of the day, from preparing for the shoot to getting into position and taking the shot.

I was invited there by a good friend Antonino Urpi of Setters di Valcalanna. The hunt took place in Sicily using English setters.

4 | Flushing out in high temperatures was incredibly difficult.

We flushed a few woodcocks but shooting wasn't easy. The wooded area was very dense, making progress difficult.

5 | Use of GPS Tracking focuses our approach.

Fortunately, using GPS tracking systems in conjunction with a locator beeper, we were able to shot some woodcocks.
