Chris 'The Countryman' Green

Chris Green was born in the Westcountry in 1961. He grew up like most Cornish kids in a world with no money. Chris spent his boyhood bird nesting, Rabbit catching and living off the fat of the land and has had a lifelong passion for fishing and shooting, even excelling at poaching in his day!

 

 

 

 

Chris began to learn the ways of Wildfowling from the age of 11, when his dad took him out one freezing morning in the dead of Winter. This inevitably led Chris to fall in love with the magical world of estuaries, ducks and wild places.

After successfully building his first gun ‘under cover’ at school in his metalwork class, he then went on to build his own gunning punt and even a three barrelled punt gun for Wildfowling which he still uses today!

Always a keen inventor today he makes a living by designing and manufacturing Goose, and Pigeon decoys for pest controllers and hunters.

Chris has also appeared on several TV programmes including Hugh Fernley‐Whittingstall’s “A Cook on the Wild Side”, and Rick Stein’s “Food Heroes”.

Inspired by working with professional directors and cameramen he also embarked on a career making wildlife and hunting films. His films on Pigeon Shooting and Wildfowling have been a massive success; establishing Chris as one of the Country’s leading authorities on filming country sports.

For the past 30 years he has been a familiar figure at Game and Country Fairs across England, Scotland, Wales and even Northern Ireland where he is well known for demonstrating his hunting and country skills.

 

‘The Wildfowler Past & Present’

At this year’s Weston Park Country Fair, Chris Green will be demonstrating his ever‐popular Wildfowling display with his usual big Guns, Big Bangs and Alfie… a Fox Red Labrador (star of the show)!

Wildfowling is all about hunting wild ducks and geese in wild places. It is an extreme sport. With a lifetime of experience, Chris’ knowledge, teaching skills, and infectious sense of humour, makes for a cracking 30‐minute demonstration.

Get ready to learn the skills, thrills, and spills of the wonderful World of Wildfowling. (Please by aware there will be a number of loud bangs!)
