  1. So I’ve been for a walk round my pheasant shoot to check the fox situation and as usual with my work and other commitments I’ve left it a bit late, only managed to find one real spot that I could possibly call in to, got myself a bit of bait and will be giving it a go, failing that it’s going to have to be when they have combined, just before the birds go in, I never make life easy for myself

    A walk round the shoot

    Well I’m back at home having a brew and the mug says it all, got myself set up where I thought they’d come up the tree line into the opening after 20 mins or so the bloody thing came into the edge of the field about 10 yards from me, winded me in a second and was off back into the woodland, wish I had the shotgun

    A walk round the shoot

    I’m like this every year, there was only last year I can remember when I had it all cleaned up by June, I have been known to use a couple of cage traps just to get the last couple, I still haven’t got round to sorting the pens out so no doubt I’ll have a couple of fly filled days up there soon, you would think I’d of learned by now

    Gone fishing

    Looking forward to this on bbc2 tonight, it’s about time we had a fishing program on normal telly, two of the funniest men on the box, one a life long angler and the other one Bob Mortimer the best thing to come out of Middlesbrough apart from the A66, I hope it brings back some good memories of watching John Wilson and a passion for angling with my dear old dad when I was much younger

    Ha ha, the program always used to finish with a freeze frame of him laughing trying to juggle a carp or a tench

    Second cut silage

    Sounds like you had a great night out, good luck for tonight

    I completely agree with this, all I want to see is a fishing program that shows me how to enjoy it, a bit of water craft and some beautiful surrounding, one of the reasons I moved away from fishing was my mates went down the commercial fisheries route and that’s just not for me, I don’t want to catch gold fish or carp that look like they have been on steroids from a muddy hole in a field

    Second cut silage

    Cracking result, definitely worth an all nighter

    I’ve just remembered another one I used to watch, go fishing with jack charlton, classics

    Yeah that wasn’t long ago, he was very lucky to walk away from that, I’m sure I read somewhere that they also found a castaway when they were filming around Australia

    Not exactly what I was expecting but I did enjoy it, it reminded me a lot of how me and my mate did our fishing, just being there with a good friend, talking about any old sh*t maybe enjoy a beer on a summers evening, I’ll be watching the rest of them just because there’s nothing better on the box

    I know what you mean about Martin bowler, Bernard cribbins made that program, I did like Jeremy wades early stuff, the one that sticks in my head is when he was fishing for arapaima in the Amazon

    Martin bowler and Bernard cribbins catching the impossible was the other one I loved

    I’d forgotten about that, I loved that, there was another one I used to watch with bob nudd, this lot is going to watch again, it bringing back some lovely memories sitting with my dad on a Sunday evening

    Chris Yates and bob James my angling heroes

    Gone fishing

    I get the impression it’s not all about the fishing and will be a bit more like how they used to do it with the likes of John Wilson, screaming reels and the other one I can’t remember the name of with Martin bowler and my absolute favourite a passion for angling

    Second cut silage

    I always find darkness is needed for foxing on a cut field, they seem very aware that there surroundings have changed, I’ve found that a mouse squeak works well on a silage cut

    Tikka T1x

    Go for a full CZ kit for about 500 quid and with the money you save on the tikka a second hand shotgun and a sound mod for that monster.308

    Tikka T1x

    You will never buy a better rim fire than a CZ, but most of us like a bit of bling, that’s why I got the T bolt, I have to admit I would love the tikka but not because it shoots better or it’s better made, just because it’s a tikka and I could say look what I’ve got
  21. I have just been given a nightmaster adjustable mount and I must say I’m very impressed with the quality of it, I’m not sure if it’s going to get any use as I’ve never mounted ad ons to my rifles due to the weight difference, I’ve been out with people who look like something from terminator but I can’t get away with it, a lamp, mate and a rifle does me, I’d be interested to know some other peoples thoughts on this because I seem to be the odd one out with my shooting buddies

    Tikka T1x

    Oh dear, you are not going to see that this year, do you go CZ and til it in when the tikka finally turns up, maybe a second hand .17 as a fill in, decisions decisions
  23. Stavross

    Nightmaster mount

    Yeah I like it now, I’ve always been a bit old school, it’s only been the last couple of years I’ve moved away from the old light force lamps to the torches, I’m always a bit behind the times

    Wrassing with the baby

    This has really made me smile, I love free range kids, I wish I could get my nephews off the Xbox or whatever it is they are glued to and show them the amazing things you get to show your little girl, there life would be so much better for it atb stav

    A pleasant stroll.

    I’m with you on that, most of the time just being there is enough for me
