to be honest bob they wernt really that well penned in, just in the release pen !
that paricular pen however in pretty isolated its on the middle of a moore so they dont really have anywhere to go !
it is however advisable to wing clip them and have a net over the relaese pen when they are first entered and we always walk in any escapee's every morning and before roost aswell
Ours were the same last year and they never left the release pen. This is in a twenty acre wood and the blighters loved it in there. On the other shoot they were out but would fly up the nearest tree. We threw sticks at them to fly over the guns, sounds a bit cruel i know but the bounty was if it flew over you and you decided not to shoot it or missed it then there was a £20 fine for the kitty.
If you did shoot it the fine was £50 , there was only one shot last year and the fine paid, the bloke didnt even want the shot bird, needless to say it was quickly nabbed by me
Good way to raise some funds tho, especially with a dozen beaters shouting SHOOT IT , dont half put the pressure on the gun and we usually end up pissing ourselves laughing over it.
