When trying to draw in wild birds (pheasants) is it better to feed on the floor or in feeders......or both?
Thanks in advance lads.

I've always found that starting to feed on the ground gets best results in drawing them in ......

Silage bales will act as a wind break, but a word of warning maze attracts rats like shit does flies.

then the silage bales are a must, end of the season lift them on the forks and the terriers will have a great time

Aniseed is like honey to phezzies wilf, mix some in and they'll smell it from miles away. A small 10ml bottle will do 10kg or more
