  2. Very very recently I found out a friend of mine committed suicide. 31yr old. Top lad. Life of the party. Recently married. So much life left. Yet he felt he had no other option that to hang himself in some shitty digs down south. Why/how does it get to this? He had so many people that loved him and would give him all week if he asked or opened up. No one suspected anything. With what we have all been through this last couple yr, what is going to come in the next couple and the pressure that still sits on the man to be the bread winner and have the best house and best car etc I expect

  3. A twin-engine passenger plane has an engine failure and the altitude is decreasing rapidly. The pilot speaks over the intercom, "I'm sorry it has come to this ladies and gentlemen, but unfortunately we are going to have to jettison the luggage in order for the aircraft to remain airborne." Baggage is thrown out but still the plane's altitude continues to decrease. Once again the pilot gets on the intercom, "I hate to do this but in order to save the majority we are going to have to start off-loading some passengers. The only fair way is to do this alphabetically, so we'll start with the lett

  4. Funny I was just wondering what the rates of suicide are in country,s were people have nothing but are happy and still look out for one another in comparison to us that surround ourselves in false shite to try and make ourselves happy while treading on each other to get it, I would imaging it’s quite a contrast,

  9. An early finish from work saw me heading to the millstream with canine companion, a few hastily dug worms and a minimalistic set of tackle. Despite the floodwater rushing through like hydro-soup l managed to find a tiny little eddy to drop a worm into. Normally the sort of spot where the water wouldn't reach halfway up the side of a pair of flip-flops, it was now a good three or four feet deep. It was also heavily overhung with branches and brambles. Luckily l was only equipped with a short rod; a whispy little thing cobbled together from an old cane fly rod .

  12. Since I moved on to the boat, you notice little shifts in seasons and natures patterns a bit more, over the last few moon phases the owl activity appears to increase the closer to a full moon we get, Thursday full moon owls going off everywhere from the moment it got dark, last night no moon heard my first one at 2,30 am and then only one or two, just a little observation I thought I would share

  16. If uv got a lamp, air rifle and ferrets best way to learn is to just get yourself out after em as much as possible. Every escaped rabbit and unsuccessful trip out will be a learning curve ( nowt wrong with asking for advice aswel mind ) but u carnt beat just just getting amongst it to learn your field craft and those first bits of success priceless. My only regret Is not getting into running dogs sooner . Was always more involved in the shooting an went into keepering at a young age so always had labs. Always fancied a lurcher of some sort an always admired a nice lurcher [BANNED TEXT

  17. Sitting here reading these genuine heart felt stories just makes me very, very sad. And the worst of it is, this is the story of millions of people, it must be, a small hunting forum with a limited number of contributors can’t be in any way so special that it has a higher than average count of people who have been touched by these issues. I don’t know if I’m right or wrong but I have said for years that the various pressures put on people today are terrible and it seems the screw only gets turned more and more on folks. The demands of living today are abuse in any other sphere o

  21. When you have mental health problems , you think the world and people would be better off without you , you don't think they'd be upset to see you gone ect ect .. Drink and drugs may play a big part for some , but there's plenty of people who don't do either yet they suffer and get suicidal with mental health problems

  25. I don't know if this is right or not but hobbies and interests I think help. I like gardening and you have to plan ahead and watch the rewards. I am keen at foraging, fishing, ferreting now started metal detecting as if I needed another hobby. But it keeps the mind active thinking where you are going what bait you are going to use where you might find stuff wether that be fungi or treasure if you get what I mean. I have had some massive up sets in my life losing one of my lads 19 years ago and more recently my 16 month old granddaughter in the spring. In my view keeping active and having to pl

  27. Why would you think the lad at it? He may well be, but I don’t see anything stupid? Anything dodgy? Or any sort of fishing going on in the lads posts, seems quite genuine, could be wrong tho. if the lad was asking for pics of smashed up dogs, or quarry, or asking how to do illegal stuff I’d see your point, but to ask for the basics on ferreting and lamping is hardly side splitting humour

  31. I dropped the wife off at the airport yesterday afternoon and was fishing by 5pm. There is a small tributary of the Vienne near to where I live and I visit it several times a year to fish for small species; ruffe, gudgeon and the like using little rods and light tackle. Last time I was down there I spotted some carp bubbles in the mill pool. Now, this pool is around two-thirds of an acre so I don't expect them to be monsters. I've had a few to around 4lb from the main river which is only 20 foot wide. But, someone had a catfish of 170 cm out of the mill pool so the carp might be bigger

  37. Good post mate. I like a bit of banter with people on the checkout or people serving table etc. Also having good relations with neighbours and caring for folk. The old lady across the road I did her shopping and gave her at least three hot meal a week, was easy to make a little extra and do you know it made me feel good helping out. BIess her she was 94 I think and passed about a year ago now. I am lucky, I live in a small town in Devon where people do seem neighbourly obviously it's not the same everywhere. I take a neighbour some mushrooms they bring round some apples etc. In my opinion this

I read a really good thing in a novel once, the main character was talking to his elderly mum and saying how he felt helpless in the face of a big situation with powerful people who would overwhelm him and his loved ones.…..so he was probably going to turn his back and leave well alone. His mum slapped him round the face, that being the first time she had ever hit him and said: “God put good and evil in the

  44. Sad to hear that pal, thing is you can’t be with a person in their head 24 7 pal . guilt can eat you alive . My immediate subordinate at work was killed by misadventure a while back , did something daft when drunk and came unstuck. I didn’t sleep for a while after with guilt knowing that not one person said “nah don’t do that “ you can’t be responsible for people’s actions all the time pal. the fact he was alone in a digs may have lead to inward looking at themselves and the phone that your unaware of. That’s a bad place to be , society, money , relationships all play a part

He got a coon in a muskrat set this morning.The tube was the size of your fist.He pushed his way through.Most terriers cant fit in a muskrat tube.I realized today just how small this terrier is.When I got home I weighed him out of curiosity. 11 pounds 12ounces.

  48. I can only see Crypto as a trap just like leaving the gold standard was a trap…..there is ultimately f**k all value in non existent things other than a value attributed by somebody, somewhere. They can push a button and wipe you out…..taking all your money with them as we have seen governments and banks do time and time again. Real things will always have a value no matter what, when you own it and you can touch it then it’s worth whatever you are prepared to take for it.
