  1. Pheasant burgers

    Worth a try then mate I'll put up a post once I've done some and the ingredients.
  2. Hi folks, I'm looking at making some pheasant burgers over the weekend and wondered if anyone could offer me any good recipe ideas... Thanks
  3. Thanks very much for the offer Rob! Much appreciated, but I think I’ve got a home for them now 👍
  4. I’ve herd young guns say, “oh no I don’t want a brace I wouldn’t know what to do with them” made me very angry! Saying that though that was only the opinion of 1 gun out of 9
  5. I’ve seen they sell well at Melton but we afoot every other Tuesday and Tuesdays is when Melton’s fur and feather bit is on isn’t it? After the beater/ guns have what they want we are left with 120-150 so I may get myself a second hand drinks chiller put some racks in it and then in my own time breast some and pluck/ skin others and try sell them to butchers or privately to people.
  6. Not sure what it’s like for the rest of the country but having trouble in Northamptonshire finding a place who’ll take our birds, couple of chaps who run other shoots I know are having the same problem, the game dealer we used to use has packed up! If anyone in Northamptonshire Area has a market for them please let me know! I’m not being part of a shoot that chucks away birds! You have to question what and why your doing it if it comes to that...

    I take it you wont be dismayed about this 'non target' ,.....cause its also on your 'hit' list ? (might possibly, have been helping you with the 'tree rats', though ?) Haha! No definitely not worried! The entrance holes have been narrowed so nobody can say I haven’t mitigated for no target species but this definitely isn’t a non target species!

    Interesting set. Can i ask, how is the trap stabilised with this set up? Not sure if you can see from this photo Ive zoomed in on but where the two wooden supports go across to keep the trap lined up I have knocked a nail into each corner to hold the trap up, nothing technical but it does the job!

  12. At our shoot I have fenns in tunnels like the above photo to catch squirrels going to and from feeders and have great success with them set like this. I was checking them yesterday whilst feeding and noticed that I had caught a stoat in one. Also it was caught facing downwards which would suggest it had been trapped whilst coming down from the tree... has anyone experienced anything similar before...? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The answer there is then don’t let the feeders get empty! I’ve just read the ingredients in the poult pellets we use and they have traces of it in them...
  14. Alright Rob, I’ve done a similar thing. Put two feeders next to each other in each pen,one with the stuff in one without to see which one goes down quicker
  15. Black Fallow Buck

    We have Black (Melanistic) fallow where I live in Northamptonshire and they have the same size palmate antlers as any other fallow colouration I have seen.
