The Pace Brothers and the Northern Shooting Show have launched the DNA Hunting Film Festival, the first of its kind in the UK, and are asking hunters to take part by creating films that offer an understanding of what we do and why we do it. There are two categories — amateur and professional — and shortlisted films will be shown in a showreel at next year’s Northern Shooting Show. The deadline for entries is 31 March 2018. Visit po.st/dnafilm for more information and to enter.
