What's The Rules

Recommended Posts

What's the ruling with penned birds on a shoot ? Are they all supposed to be released prior to the shooting season or can you keep them penned and release them throuought the season ? .........

Fallen out with the keeper , lol. In my opinion it's usually bigger shoots that do it, and aslong as the pen is moved reguarly onto fresh ground & pecking etc is minimal, I'm sure there ok to keep them through till later in the season, I think it's more a guild line rather than a enforcesble rule as such.

I think its a poor do when they do this , and its poor keepering if they do there job right there is no need to do it and just gets shooting a bad name

Sound's like the keeper has no idea what he's doing :icon_eek:

 

 

Bird's should be released well before the shooting season starts :censored: if they are still penned they wont fly properly, they wont know where to roost, they will have no wing muscle and will be in poor condition :censored: :censored: :censored:

 

He shouldn't be in the job if he's doing that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

theirs no rules to it....theirs a generally excepted rule that its all released before its respective season starts. how ever i always had a few pens of partriges out all season as call birds. and a shoot i know that shoots BIG days restocks at the start or december with brailed birds.

 

HAVEING to let birds go on the day of the shoot is something that is simply not on yanks and spannish may do it but we dont, any keeper who makes up excuses for it needs gone. keeping birds put is easy if you know how. we used to put 2,000 reds 2000 ducks and 14,000 pheasants down on just over 300acre and get VERY high returns on them as well as a few thou on rented bits of ground.

simple if you know how
