  1. Hope you have a good season Bell. Most of the lads travel over an hour to get to our ground it takes me an hour and a half but its worth it.
  2. Thanks for taken time to view and reply Phil I must try and take some pics won't be as good as yours that's a nice looking cocker Bell up in the borders.
  3. I help to run a walk and stand syndicate we have twelve guns that's two teams of six So when four lads could not make it on Sat I tried to fill the vacancies but no one took up the offer. Saturdays shoot with only 4 guns in the line and 4 beaters seamed as if it wasn't going to be a very good day and it was bloody raining on the first drive .My team was to beat on the first drive thru a wood of falling trees and heavy bracken cover we pushed thru with two lads with dogs in the wood and one flanking either side with one walking gun. We flushed at least a half dozen pheasants and about ten woodcock. Next drive was what we call our high drive this is a wood on a hill that we drive the birds uphill and when the flush they fly back across the guns who are in a valley we see plenty of birds pheasants and red legs and the rain stops . After elevenses my team beat again but first the guns blank in a wood to walk birds over to the wood we are to beat as we don't have enough bodies to act as stops we loss some of the birds but not to worry as most of them go into the next drive. Anyway we have seven drives my young dog gets to flush a few birds and retrieves a pheasant a partridge and her first woodcock. At the end of the day we have a dozen pheasants seven partridge three wood cock and two woodies. Plus we were dry .Ended up a good day after all
  4. We have three vacancies on our shoot in the Scottish borders this SAT2nd NOV. (you must provide proof of insurance) Kick off at 9.30 for 6 to 8 drives depending on time. provide your own lunch pheasants partridge perhaps woodcock. average bag of 22 last season. Dogs welcome. for more info please pm Dave a.t.b. £40 PER GUN paid at the end of the day.
  5. We have them open from day one in our main pen .300 T0 400 BIRDS . our logic is as we have a number of buzzards on the place and as we are unable to place a top net on the pen we give the birds a better chance of dodging the raptors and becoming streetwise plus we need them to get used to moving into other woods on the place . We do keep small pens closed with top nets 20 / 30 birds until end Sep using these birds as callers to keep others from straying to far onto the moor seems to have worked for us over the last 16 years . Of course your situation may be very different to ours .
  6. Don't know what pressure he was under he didn't live on the estate as reported . The estate has cut down Henlaw wood . Think he will get a custodial sentence. Can't see him changing his mindset so will he ever be employed as a gamey again hope not.
  7. Bought the same book many years ago if you want a good solid reference book full of knowledge that you won't see on a D.VD. this is a good aid to training a spaniel.
  8. AMBLE OR ALNMOUTH BOULMER CRASTER SEAHOUSES all within a few miles of each other.

    Great visually but the walt Disney dialog is awful shame as it looks like a lot of effort has gone into the actual filming .

    Think he's on about going to court to confirm we left the EU on the 29 th march
  11. cheers will try them at that pressure
  12. watched a bit on GMTV this morning about culling elephants in S.A. the man being grilled by Mr morgan gave a very honest account of the situation in S.A. as he sore it .MR morgan resorted to question the character of the man he was interviewing as he had no real argument to come back at him.Mr Morgan then moved on to the next interview with his pal who he had hung out with in LA this being MR M Tyson who's character is beyond reproach
  13. One of the last comments our guide at Auschwitz made was we have to remember Starlin killed far more people than Hitler did.
  14. I visited AUSTWICH this year you have to see this place for yourself go in person then make your mind up. Krakow had a vibrant jewish community before the w11 not many left after the war and to this day it never recovered .
