  1. Lamps.

    What do people prefer a to run their dogs with, a narrow LED type beam with little light spill or a conventional bulb type lamp with a more open beam?
  2. Season about to start, need a new lamp to run my dog with, what should I get?
  3. Would like to here from the people who work pedigree whippets. I have listened to a few people and some say you need to get a working bred - bigger framed dog around the 21"-22" and 30+lbs and others have said that the lighter framed pedigree racing breds are quicker and better on the turn and make very good rabbiting dogs. I would be very interested to here any views from people that actually work either or both types or have seen them work. Many thanks.
  4. Little fish, no I do not know the breeding of the bitch Lurcher x Lurcher, and no I will not be having a pup they just belong to a friend.
  5. small type lurchers

    She is a cracking looking bitch, how is she bred ? how was the sire to the pup bred? Happy hunting.
  6. Which Club?

    Morning, I have just moved back to Suffolk and have had a couple of days wildfowling with friends in Kent and have been bitten by the bug, I have now decided to join a club and do some myself. I have been on the internet and have found two clubs both within an hour of me, The Kings Lynn's and west Norfolk Wildfowling association and the Fen wildfowling association, I appreciate I will have to be interviewed by the clubs as I do not yet know anyone in the area who is a wildfowler, but can anyone recommend either club. I am really looking for a friendly club with a few members who would be kind enough to help me learn the finer arts of foreshore shooting. Any help much appreciated.
  7. Thank you guys, for all of your advise. I was out this morning and saw another young buck with a doe which took off into the rape, never to be seen again! Cover was so thick in all of the woodland belts and hedges i could have been ten feet from a buck and still not seen one, will wait until the rut now and hope to get some on the 2nd cut silage ground. Happy hunting.
  8. Have had a great start to the buck season, have had five so far but all have been young bucks. I know the land i stalk has big bucks on as i have seen a lot of them whilst out doe stalking. Can anyone shed any light on to the habits of the mature bucks? Happy hunting.
  9. I had my blaser 243 shortened to 20" for the ase mod, it works a treat for me.
  10. buck in velvet

    2434me, it makes perfect sense to me, my sentiments exactly.
  11. Deerhound x Whippets

    Sounds like there is some mixed views on the cross, still like the sound of it though.
  12. Deerhound x Whippets

    Is anyone working the above cross?
  13. Went rabbit shooting last night with the .22 (sub-sonics), when i missed, which happened too frequently I heard a high number of ricochets, thankful i was shooting into the base of the Downs, but it is still rather un-nerving to hear the wiz. The majority of the ground I shot on was stubble with the odd bit of cultivated land, not particularly stoney, but quite dry. Does anyone else have a similar problem and what if anything can be done about it? Is there much energy left in the bullet once it has ricocheted. Many thanks.
  14. Thank you guys for your advise, much appreciated.
