  1. hi charlie,

    I am a newbie to wildfowling and still fear the mud and not competent enough to go into the mud during low tide without company.

    But i still love it nevertheless.

    Yes the gun barrel doesnt like the salt water and the mud and most days, i have returned without any game but every successful day feels like i have earned it. the serenity and tranquility is sooooooooooooo soothing.

    Chilling out with friends after the shoot. looking at stars. Waking up at 0400 in feezing cold yeah i suppose i love it.


  2. Great! Whats the situation on tags?

    I have a DSC certificate which the dept of fish and game utah recognised in lieu of hunters education.

    How will it work in wyoming?

    Whats the succes percentage over the past few years.

    Can i borrow a rifle?

    I am interested.

    you'll hear from me real soon.


  3. Thanks for the invite. I was in Bulgaria recently. Lovely countryside and everything is so cheap and affordable. I visited a few gunshops and was amazed to see the high prices for everything.

     

    I can never get that despite such cheap hotels, cheap labour, cheap food and such abundant wildlife in state owned forests, the hunting prices are such that it would be cheaper to do such hunts in the uk (for red), or even fly across the alantic (north america for brown bear).

     

    Nothing personal against you but i wonder how the bulgarians can afford to shoot at these rates.


  4. hi.

    i am new to pigeon/game shooting.

    im a doctor based in enfield and hold a shotgun certificate and my own shotguns. i mostly shoot clays and am looking to accompny/ observe members to a rabbit/hare/pigeon shoot. i drive and would like to try/watch rabbit/pigeon shooting first hand.

    regards.


  5. hi!

    wanted some advice re: clothing esp if we have any american members.

     

    i have used prologic max 4 parka and bibs( www.prologicfishing.com) for waterfowling and it is well suited for the winters in nothern england/yorkshire esp when one has to spend long hours outdoors without any cover.

     

    I was thinking of buying some stuff from usa as it is cheaper there. but visiting cabelas website has left me confused as there are hundreds of products available and all seem to be good. readers reviews also didnt help much as one gets mixed replies.

     

    I am looking for the following characteristics (in that order)

    warmth+ dry (last hunt in -8.5 deg. C Plus winds; in a river estury+ mud)

    good camo

    Should have an inner pocket to hold cellphone

    silent

    i have shortlisted the following items. would be greatful for any reviews/comments/suggestions.

    (is there any other site i should be looking at?)

     

    1 Cabela's Late Season® Parka - Regular Item:UH-930886 (mossy oak new break up)

    2 Cabela's Ultimate Suedeâ„¢ Weather-BLOCKâ„¢ 4-in-1 Parka Item:7IS-931205 (mossy oak new break up)

    3 ArcticShield® H3 Parka Item:XH-960255 (mossey oak new break up)

    4 Walls® Legend Insulated Coat Item:IJ-960409 (Realtree AP HD)

    (note: omitted jackets on purpose as i want a long parka/coat)

     

    bibs:

    Cabela's Ultimate Suedeâ„¢ Weather-BLOCKâ„¢ Insulated Bibs Item:7IS-931208

     

    Ive never tried coveralls. does anyone have experience of using coveralls? do i still need to wear a jacket on top?

     

    waders:

    1 Cabela's Roaring Forkâ„¢ Neoprene Wader Item:IJ-811200 (felt soles)

    2 Cabela's 3mm Neostretchâ„¢ Neoprene Chest Waders with Lug Soles - Regular Item:IJ-830650

     

    wanted to ask if lug soles or felt soles have any distinct advantages/ disadvantages. What about "stockingfoot waders? are they any good?

     

    is there anything else im missing out ?(am considering buying a facemask)

     

    would appreciate any input.

    regards

    shooter.

     

    P.S. im not visiting usa personally so will be ordering online/ asking someone to pick it up for me.
