  1. cartridges

    Nothing wrong with steel if you know what it's capabilities are , your always going to get some people say that steel is crap and you can't get a clean kill from it, "Well" you will Not! shooting at fowl out of range... some but not all fowlers have trouble judging distance and that's where the fault lies . .... I shoot steel all year round at clays , pigeons , wildfowl, a lot of people make the mistake of just going out and buying steel cartridges ,and using them without testing them through there guns and patterning them to find the right cartridge that suits there gun some people may think what a load of rubbish but believe me it's true ... Also your choice of chokes make a big difference , i have just changed my gun from beretta ,to winchester and have had to do more patterning to find a steel cartridge load to suit my gun , i have also gone onto patternmaster chokes with great!! results , i now have a load for ducks up to 40 yards with a good clean kill, and that is the most important thing a "clean kill" ..... you hear of lads saying i fetched a duck out at 50yards perhaps so but was it a clean kill, not a broken wing ....for me it's all about a clean kill ....

  4. well this was the last morning flight for me today as i have work in the morning , i had been out lamping till 2.30 am and when the alarm went off this morning the thought was there at the back of my mind should i , should i not!! but no i slung the quilt back and got my old aching bones out my pit got dressed and down to put the kettle on and get my kit ready , it was 10 past five when i left the house, it's about 10 minute run to the particular marsh i was shooting this morning ... i got to the car park and to my suprise there was no other fowlers down so i got kitted up and set off to my chosen spot , it was just breaking light when i got to my spot there is not much cover where i was, so i got in on the side of the river on a cliff ledge with the dog at the side of me , i loaded the auto up and was sat waiting when there was a single grey come up the river but he went to wide for a decent shot ... another 20 minutes past and i could hear some canadas on the move , i got tucked right in as i could hear them getting closer. i had a quick look and could see they were going to be just wide of me , with that my chance was on..... i pulled onto the last bird of the outside of the skeen as it would be the closest , i hit him with my first but he carried on, i gave him a second shot and rolled him over mid air but no! he was still not finished he picked himself up and dropped to about 2ft of the water and was banking left back towards me , i stayed on him and he was heading straight back towards me , i dropped my gun and pulled back onto him and took him clean out straight over my head and he dropped behind me the dog was straight onto him .. after about 5 minutes , i thought the dog was taking his time, so i went over to have a look where he was and i could see him trying to drag it out a little ankle snapper , it was quite funny to watch but with a bit of encouragement he did drag it back by it's head .. when he got it back to me i could see the reason why he struggled it was one big mother of a canada , we got back in and sat there for another hour and seeing just 3 golden eye go up the middle of the river to far out for a shot i decided to head for home , i put the big mother in my rucksack and onto my shoulders and i thought **** i can see why you struggled lad with it, also i was pleased there was not more to carry off .. well all in all it was a good flight with a nice sunrise plenty of waders about with some great sounds too ..
  5. A GOOD MORNING FOWLING

    nice one chunky see i told you where to be mate ...
  6. He is just over two now this is his first full season and still very full of himself , he thinks he knows best a lot of the time, then some times i let him run on when retrieving and he does surprise me at times .... i would say it would be getting on for 300 yards to the other side of the river where the canada was floating down , he was swimming against the tide on the way over then on the way back the tide was takin him down river ... it is a nice spot when the conditions are right , the dug out has been there for years since i was a teenager , someone just cleans it back out when needed ... yes well spotted...... have you shot that area?? or been down the river in a boat ...?? Shot it a few times with a couple of old club members back in the 's as a guest, dont know if they still shoot there, they moved away, so sort of lost contact, and I wish I had a boat thanks for all the replies .... god the 's it's changed a lot since then..... less ducks and geese more hassle keeping our shooting , the young dog has made another great retrieve out the same river but further up the marsh not so big this time only a mallard ..
  7. first wigeon! how best to cook?

    i have to say , i normally marinate them in different kinds of chutney , or reggae reggae sauce , but i gave some ducks and geese to a couple of polish lads at work and they bought me some back to eat that had been smoked under cherry shavings and it tasted great ....

  9. well i have been on holiday this last week and done nothing but shooting pheasants and wildfowling down the foreshore in good old fowling weather .. it's the young dogs first full season this year , i had him out in feb last year 3 or 4 times but he was not properly ready for it ..... there has been a few duck about but i have had to work hard for them and i have had a few geese also ..taking a nice triple out at canadas Saturday morning ... the young dog had what i would call a fantastic retrieve this morning and it made my week , i pulled a canada out second shot and it peeled out over the other side of the river , he marked it well and was off in fine style for his canada , i recorded it on my phone .. i do apologize for the commentary but he is a young dog and i wanted to encourage him has much as i could , the video is not the best because it's on my phone , look for the black dot on the edge of the river , when i see how far it was i got my phone out to record it and the dog is right over the far side of the tidal river watch how the flow of the river takes him down river ...he also retrieved my right and left at wigeon out the river this morning also , i have to say he has the making of a great fowling dog , he is learning every time i take him out ... for some reason , i can't rotate the video click on the first pic

  11. pick the odd one out

  12. pick the odd one out

    i shot these 3 ducks inland on the last day , which is the odd one out.... And why is it the odd one out . ....
  13. no bell it is not you who has sent me the hate mail lol , i have my own personal fan club the person who has sent it has not replied on this topic ...
  14. les believe me or believe not , I h ave access to loads of inland duck shooting and I do go but !! If there are ducks and geese down the foreshore guess where I will be at the end of the day you do what you do and we do what we do , this pole was started to see what peoples thoughts are . now some people have taken it the wrong way..
  15. I personally don't think We need to go down that road Wag, it matters not what we call our own sport. As has been shown on here in the last week we all shoot the same birds in different locations at time. Me......I'm just as happy to shoot a duck or goose on the foreshore as an inland stubble. I do however detect a machismo attitude of those who seek their sport on the foreshore over those who shoot inland........ie covered in mud, few birds came etc.......just my observations. bell like i said this is nothing serious, just a poll to see what peoples thoughts are..... as for not going down that road again is this not a shooting forum ? where people can share ,there shooting trips , ask for advice and discuss and debate things ? and that is all this is some people have taken it to heart , i do think some people are spineless tho.... they cannot have there say on the open forum and feel they can abuse me through PM .... this comment i would say is way off the mark...... I do however detect a machismo attitude of those who seek their sport on the foreshore over those who shoot inland........ie covered in mud, few birds came etc.......just my observations. what these people are saying is what they believe in and have been bought up on ....... wildfowling is not easy out on the foreshore and we do have to work hard to get what we do get ... there is nothing wrong with inland duck and goose shooting , i did find this Wildfowling is the hunting of ducks and geese in the harsh environment of the tidal marshes and foreshore. The sport is regulated by the 1968 Firearms Act, which controls the possession and use of shotguns, and the 1981 Wildlife and Countryside Act, which prescribes the seasons and circumstances in which wild birds may be hunted. In addition, wildfowlers operate to strict codes of practice issued by the sport's governing body . Shooting occurs between September and February, and normally takes place at dawn and dusk. Shooting may also be possible at other times in response to tidal conditions. Ducks and geese are a wild and wary quarry, and it requires great skill to outwit them. Often this can only be done when the weather is at its worst, and unlike most other estuary users, wildfowlers eagerly look forward to stormy or cold conditions.
