intersting where did you get the owl decoy from ..cheers tony.

Hi Tony, I purchased the little owl decoy from one of my local gun shops, but they are available from online retailers such as Uttings: http://www.uttings.c...owl-decoy-slod/

Works a treat :yes:

i think that is the best air rifle money can buy and the decoy advice is great but the hide looks as much use as a chocolate fire gaurd http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... if you fidgit as much as me that is.there never going to spot you through those big holes http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... atb mike


Its suprising how effective such a simple hide is when set behind a dark background such as this small woodland. What you also can't tell is that the ground slopes down and I lay between three closely planted conifers with the rifle on the bipod. The decoy is 30 yards away. This is the view from the decoy (pic 1) and the view from inside the hide (pic 2)

All good gun or outdoor shops should supply them. I got mine from a local shop in Kirkby Lonsdale. If you're struggling check out Amazon: http://www.amazon.co...words=owl decoy
