    Today my pal and I went to alter the position of one of the feeders so that our little resident muntjac cannot reach. this one is a little longer and will hold about 7ltrs of feed. After we had finished with the chores, we scaled the very steep and muddy banking that seperates the two quarry areas by using a rope to pull ourselves up. Now those of you who know me, are aware that I am built for comfort whereas my shooting partner is like a bloody mountain goat so I sent him up to scale the bank and I used to rope, but I did it in style Now with the rope we were able to gain easy access into the other area which is stuffed with rabbit warrens and another area which had about 200 pigeon in the trees, resting between feeding on the rape fields next door. We will cut steps into the bank in the next week or two to make life a bit easier when carrying feed for the pheasant feeder we placed in there today and of course when carrying the guns and gear over the bank. I did say in my earlier post that we will be making some serious cutting through the brambles and bushes to allow this area to be shot with ease and judging by what we have seen today, it will be well worth it although the task is not a small one. The sun was not making it easy to take the photos but here are a few to try and show some of the area we discovered today and this is only a small section so a lot to be gained and learned. This place is the smallest perm we have by a long way but there is just something that I love about this place. Phil

    In what way? I am not claiming Boris is brilliant and will solve all your problems he isn’t and he won’t but Corbyn is a dangerous dangerous man his policies for this country will leave us in ruin and business running for the hills. Why do I care if business runs I hear you say? Without a thriving business sector unemployment will sore and tax revenue will plunge causing us massive shortfalls and when removed from power we end all picking up the pieces. If you think austerity was bad wait till what will happen after a Corbyn government.

    Since I moved over to France I haven't had a stick. Back in the UK it was customary to choose a stick around this time of year and then have it ready for the next beating season. Now I don't shoot I haven't had the need for one until we got a little 3 year old terrier from the dog's home last December. She had been badly treated and this showed whenever I picked up anything that resembled a stick;- fishing rod, rake, anything like that. So I cut a little stick and started taking it with us on walks to de-sensitise here which has worked and also got me back into the walking with a stick routine. Today, I went out for a long walk armed with a pair of secateurs and the dog to find my new stick. I found what I wanted only 100 yards from home; a nice ash branch growing straight up its parent trunk and having an even fork. Stick cut and trimmed at breast height with the secateurs leaving enough on the forks to cut back and shape at home. Job done! Old stick left where I can recover it tomorrow. While walking along I surveyed my new thumb stick and saw that other than a minor kick about a foot from the forks it is remarkably straight. Two and a half hours into the walk which is along green lanes around our house Lily suddenly disappeared down a ditch where a blackbird flew out. So I called her back, but all I got was barking from below. She had gone to ground again. I say again because a few weeks ago she disappeared in plain sight while walking alongside the River Vienne and didn't re-appear for two and a half days in a pretty poor state. She has an obsession with coypu and there are thousands of them over here in ponds, lakes, rivers, ditches, you name it. We even get them in the garden. Coypu make a strange sort of cross between a grunt and a hum and I could hear just that along with the Terrier's barking. Coypu can make a mess of dogs if cornered and my dog isn't a natural killer. I dropped a foul-caught mouse in front of here a few days ago and she played with it like a cat would. The mist hunting that she has done was to bring me a baby coypu, the size of a guinea pig, drop it alive at my side while I was setting a mole trap, then run back to the van. A killer she isn't. Using my new thumb stick I dug into the soft ground under my feet and broke into a tunnel. The hole was widened until I was thwarted by a concrete pipe going under the track I had been walking down. Lily was barking continuously and ignoring my calls. I poked my new stick in and couldn't feel anything so I cut a long length of bramble that was draped over a tree and using my woollen Tilly hat as a glove probed the tunnel with the bramble. Nothing! Then a French lady arrived, walking down the lane. I explained what I was doing and she suggested getting the fire brigade out which isn't as daft as it sounds because they are always doing things other than putting fires out. They man the ambulances for one thing, but digging a terrier out is probably more of a farmer thing. I told the lady that I would wait a while then call my wife to bring a pick and shovel forgetting that she has buggered off to the Limoges Christmas market with friends. Just as the French lady was leaving she suddenly had a thought; what about the other end of the tunnel? It was only a few yards away at the other side of the track. Bugger me! Never thought if that. So, off to the other end where access was easier and I didn't have to kneel and stick my upside down head into a mucky hole. With the aid of my phone torch app I could see the arse end of a coypu just a couple of feet in so I asked the lady in my best French to pass me the stick, which she did. Using the long forks on the new thumb stick I was able to hook the coypu's neck, shepherd style, forcing it to the side of the pipe and dragged it back so its scaly tail was within grabbing distance. The coypu was about the size of a West Highland White dog and from past experience I knew that they were built like a brick outhouse and had a pair of teeth that could inflict serious damage. So, hooking the dammed thing by the neck and dragging it out needed a plan and the plan was drag with stick in right hand, grab coypu's tail in left hand, pull the coypu out of the pipe whilst dropping the stick so that when the coypu was unplugged and swung round my waist to be thrown down the banking all in one quick motion, I could grab the sodding terrier as it bolted out of the pipe after the coypu. At least I got that bit of choreography right. While walking back towards home I found out the the French lady is British, lives locally and needs some rodent traps. Anyway, my new thumb stick is now drying out under a heavy weight to straighten the slight kink and I am looking forward to using it for less arduous tasks in future.

    As stated fine tune trigger, what I do is apply safety and gently tap treadle so that it is just being held then take safety off, can be fiddly at first but worth the effort.

    good point. I was always taught no talking, definitely no smoking, keep noise to a minimum but sometimes as you say it makes no difference. I have also run a rabbit to ground with little dog and turned a Ferret in straight away and rabbit has bolted, yet always been told this is a definite sin. sometimes they bolt, sometimes they don't.

    Well after ringing my mate decided togo today, first light pissing down and blowing a hooley thought we had made a wrong'un. After driving up a flooded boggy lane things where looking even worse. We have had some hard times recently with ground that has RHD and Mixie, coupled with a few blanks because of that. I had suggested a piece of ground where we had a few at the start of the season, burrows we had already done. Well did not expect much as we had done them before this year, but needed a confidence boost, they are easy burrows. Parked the motor half way up the hedge as ground was so wet, if I drove in the field I don't think we would not have got out. Any way struck out across the field and I could see in the grass there is indeed a few about here. Came to a short piece of hedge that stands alone 25 yards or so long, looked at it and thought, maybe a brace here. Shot the long net around a 50 yard and a bit. Sure enough a brace real quick, good confidence booster, next a really awkward corner and another quick brace. Two open ground burrows next, my mate tilled the holes I shot the long net around in a circle. Put four small ferrets in and after about fifteen minutes three, then fired the sweeper in (fox my best ferret, if it's in there she will find it) it was empty they had done their job. Next a bigger open ground burrow same set up as last, this took longer four small ferrets in, only two. Thought to myself there is more in here, picked the little ones up and fired in Sox she is a good ferret not quite as good as Fox but two more one after another. so a lovely day was had as it fined away sun came out and the wind dropped. I didn't expect that as we had done it already this year, a good confidence boost for us. We don't get big numbers down here, especially recently. Cheers Arry

    Just seen this post Phil, I’m sure my phone doesn’t bring new posts up sometimes me and jim will defiantly be down to see you at some point cheers for the offer! youll love the thermal, me and my mate were out pre dawn the other day sat at the end of a hedge line waiting for the geese that never showed up.. when my mate said there’s something over there! so I fired up the thermal and it was a fox about 40yrd away, we’ve been after this one for a while and failed on all attempts but when your sat down smoking/talking and drinking coffee it makes an appearance, it won’t be making any more

    Like most I was sick and tired of the commercialism of Christmas so a couple of years back I made a stand. I announced I was not going to buy my granddaughters more toys to make the pile bigger in their rooms. I decided I would buy them a life skill and have funded the eldest's swimming lessons to teach her to swim. Its cost me a fortune but every Sunday for the past two years; off we go to the local baths. She loves it, can swim and dive in. My work is done. This year its the youngest's turn at 3 years old. She's been going with her sister every now and then and loves it and so this year I'm buying her swimming lessons.

    It makes the meeting between the 3 main fighters more interesting... Wilder cant change he is a 1 shot fighter, but probably the most dangerous because of that, Fury was shocking on his last fight and lucky to get through it, yet the Fury band wagon claims he only gets up for a big fight ... Joshua was shocking in the first Ruiz fight, comes back and boxes perfectly to get the win, yet is smashed for doing exactly what Fury does most fights.... as you rightly he has put a new string to his bow, we all know he can finish now we know he can box....dont mean hes gonna beat either Wilder or Fury, but gives him a great platform to build from....

    Just an update, my pal checked the extra picatiny rail and 008 studs and they were not tight. It is all now tightened up and he is off to the range to set zero this morning. I think without doubt this was the issue, schoolboy error as we thought eachother had tightened the all the fixings Thanks guys Phil
