  1. Manual Duck Callers

    I use 4 Duck Commander calls and find them great. I've got the Triple Threat, Ole Raspy, a Duck Picker and the Original Commander. I've got 2 Primos teal calls too. My son uses Buck Gardner calls which also sound great.
  2. What Camo For Uk Salt Marsh Estuary?

    I bought Pro Logic gear off of eBay this year. Absolutely brilliant and warm. Only cost me £100 for a fleece lined parka and pants. It was in Max 4 advantage
  3. Last Day.

    Myself and my young lad headed out first thing yesterday morning with no joy.It was the worst morning flight of the season. in the evening we met up with 2 lads that we've been shooting with all season for the last flight of the season. A mate of mine tagged along too. We split up,myself, m mate and my son setting up on a flooded field and the other 2 boys going onto a callows on the opposite side of the road. A pair of mallard got up as we headed in,no shot. We had teal and widgeon flying in over us but were too high. My lad dropped a teal but it kept diving and the springer couldnt get it. The other 2 boys manager to get 9 between them,1 of whick was the biggest drake widgeon I've seen. All in all it was a great season. Bagged way more duck than last year. Still waiting on getting that illusive goose. Highlights have to be my son getting his licence this year and he is a cracking shot to boot. Another has to be training my young lab who after a few mistakes on my behalf,came into her own nearing the end of the season. She'll be a flyer come next September. The only downside was no water until nearly November,then we got too much lol. Only 201 days to go til it all starts again but whos counting?????? ME lol
  4. Goose Shoot Ni?

    So nobody organises goose hunts in Northern Ireland? Does anyone know of any wildfowling clubs that I could contact please?
  5. Goose Shoot Ni?

    Hi lads, I'm wondering is there anyone in Northern Ireland that organises shoots for geese? There are a few of us that shoot together all the time and would love to do it as none of us have shot 1 yet. Also, what are the legalities of taking your gun across the border? Thanks in advance Jimmy
  6. Getting Dog To Hunt Cover

    Retrieving using a dummy launcher.I'm trying to steady her and not have her flying out as soon as I fire a shot,hence the lead.
  7. Getting Dog To Hunt Cover

    Andy, she's 9 months old not 7 but she is big. J Davies she's doing the same now. If there's no fresh sent, she won't go in. She flushed and retrieved another cock this morning when I had her out for a run.
  8. Getting Dog To Hunt Cover

The second is the pheasant the pup trailed flushed and retrieved on the 1st of November.Shes comming on great.Thanks for all the advice and help along the way.Still more to do but getting there.
  9. Hi All More Geese

    Still waiting to get my first goose.Season finished around this part of the country since October 15th and never even seen 1 with the lack of water.Will have to try elsewhere.
  10. Best Duck Callz

    I'm using 3 Duck Commander calls right now.Find them great.Easy to blow and sound good.
  11. Getting Dog To Hunt Cover

    Cheers lad,totally agree with you.Need to steady her up a bit.She flies out too when I fire a shot.I've started putting her lead on her and standing on it to stop her taking off.
  12. Dummy Launcher

    Yeah Colin,its the training 1 I'm after mate but thanks
  13. Dummy Launcher

    Not sure this is in the right place so appologies if it's not. I'm looking for a dummy launcher that won't break the bank. I'm in Ireland so hoping you will post if need be.Had a deal done with someone in the UK but never gave me his paypal. Thanks for looking, Jim
  14. I've used the 12g Black Gold 30g 6's and I think they're a great cartridge.Some killing power in them.
