I was mightily surprised the other day. I went to have a walk around with the rifle and as I came to a gap in a hedge that looks out onto a large field, every crow out there buggered off, how they knew I was there? Have no idea.

Yet when I walked the boundary hedge, there were two pigeons on the ground 40 yards ahead, hadn't moved even though I was walking straight toward them.

Was their mistake and I doubt I'll ever get the chance to shoot the dead ones mate again. Probably has bad earache.

They don't only see that you have a gun, they probably know what you paid for it and where you got it from.

Nor me. I find its the same with any vermin. If you have no gun, they will fly around you and if you do, then they are a mile away.

My Crows on one part of the shoot here are even more intelligent than that. They know if I have a shotgun or a rifle. If I have a shotgun, they will all sit out in the field 70,80, 100 odd yards away and fly off when I try to get closer.

If I have the rifle, they are buzzing around my head. :wallbash:

Sometimes you can fool them and get them to fly off if you take a walking stick with you or a HW100. ;)

If you take a HW100T with you, the corvids stand admiring the quality of the gun, this gives you time to whack all of them ;)
