  1. I will take this if it's still available
  2. Please send any questions to the mobile number on thread as pm's may not be checked daily. just to clarify, the quad without the tracks is not for sale, either a full package with tracks and quad or just the tracks. there is also a full set of good tyres and wheel if bought as a package
  3. Camoplast tatou t4s track conversion kit for atv's . If you are looking at these you will appreciate how good these Canadian kits are and how much they transform the ability of an atv. The tracks come with a fitting kit for a foreman 450 es. These tracks give a ground pressure of less than 0.5psi (human foot average 7psi) and provide unrivalled traction as well as improving the ground clearance and stability of the atv. They were bought for a moorland job of spreading seed on sssi sites where minimum ground damage was a priority and have had very little use. The belts are as new. Provides
  4. If your gun is proofed for 3 inch magnum cartridges then using 50g cartridges will be fine, I use use 56g cartridges in my old sxs without any problems. If you are using steel however then it is very important you check to see which chokes are proofed for steel with your gun, usually no more than half choke.
  5. didn't think shovelers were on the list http://www.basc.org.uk/en/departments/game-and-gamekeeping/game-shooting/shooting-seasons.cfm Think you will find they are
  6. A gadwall A teal A mallard And lost a shoveler Can't wait for the evening flight. Sunday shooting of wildfowl is a regional thing and only banned in some areas, luckily not around here.
  7. I am looking at getting some new tyres for my fourtrak, the ones on it at the moment are nexen all terrain and are rubbish. I do most of my miles on the road but during the duck season use it on wet fields boggy gateways ect so need a good all terrain tyre. The ones on it are 255-70-15, I have looked at the bf goodrich but the nearest size I can find is 235-75-15, not knowing too much about tyres I think this means the ones already on it would be 20mm bigger than the ones I would be putting on. Am I correct in thinking there is 20mm differance in width? Would the size differance mean
  8. This is the 8'x8' ladder trap we made last year, I have recently set it back up again.
  9. Get yourself to a range with somebody experienced and try a few different makes and gr ammo. Make sure you only fire 3 or 4 shots and then let the barrel cool off. If the person you take with you can get good groupings then it is you at fault, if niether of you can get good groupings and the obvious things are all ok like scope tight, ammo not clipping moderator, moderator on tight ect then it may be a case of finding some ammo your rifle likes. My tikka lite in .223 loves 55gr hornady (thumb nail groups of 4) but groupings are about 4 inch apart with the superfast 53gr ones, my zero shifts 2
  10. Would I need to strengthen the suspension or do any other modifications if I made up a bracket to go on the front of the chassis behind the bumper, I am asking because a few winch's I have looked at come in at 30-40kg or would it be ok to just fit the winch.
  11. I will take this please,please pm me prefered payment method
  12. I was just wondering how much work would be involved in fitting a winch to my fourtrak. I aren't wanting to pull myself up cliff's, it would only ever be used if I got stuck in boggy mud in gateway ect. As I have AT tyres fitted and not mud tyres I thought it may be a good idea as a back up for future. Would I be able to just attatch it to the bull bar on the front of the car, I would presume the bull bar will be fixed to the chassis so could I just make a bracket up to attach it directly to the bull bar.
  13. Not sure if this picture will upload but my first squirrel in my homemade bodygrip trap. First of many I hope.
  14. Here's a good one, might have a go at a couple myself.
  15. Put a live cage trap down, catch it and then give it some lead away from prying eyes.
  16. I have a roll of 1 inch square weld mesh that we made a ladder trap out of but it doesn't look strong enough to cage a fox, what thickness steel should I be looking for?
  17. Thanks, but I am wanting to know exactly which mesh people are using, the problem is it all looks the same when looking at a picture. Some sites advertise the steel thickness in mm's, others gauge, and how big do the squares need to be.
  18. I am pondering on making some live fox traps and wondered if anyone could point me invthe direction of where to get some strong wire mesh from. A link to the exact mesh and where I can get it from would be good. Ideally I would like to make a couple of traps and at £100 each I thought it may be cheaper to make them and I can make them a bit bigger than a bought one. Thanks
  19. I am doing a bit of trapping on a local shoot and wondered what would be the best thing to attatch the chain of a fenn trap to when trapping along the bottom of a sandstone wall. Would it be best to just put a stake in somewhere and fasten it to that?
  20. I have been asked to control some rabbits on a caravan site near the Crook area but its too far for me to travel. This would be a paid job presuming you are professional and have the correct experience and obviously the correct insurance. I have not seen the land but can tell you the caravans are lived in all year round so you would need to be discreet. Ferreting sounds a good option to me or possibly air rifle with nightvision being a more discreet method, I would presume snaring would not be appropriate due to dogs and cats being around. The owners have suggested gassing but this would n
  21. The last time I ordered from them it took 12 days for my order to arrive, the flocked shell decoys were very poor quality and the sticks they sent with them wouldn't fit the decoys, I sent them back for a refund. Previous to that I ordered a remote switch for a flapper and that didn't work, they replaced it and the new one they sent me only works from about 5 yards.
  22. My mate did this with his wife's black tights, then he left them in my car for my wife to find the morning after I had been out lamping. Needless to say, I had a lot of explaining to do about what I had been doing and who with until 2am.
  23. Cleveland police will sometimes do it why you wait or if you drop it off on a morning you can collect it in the afternoon.
  24. Got 12 neoprene type shell decoys for sale if you are intrested, they are brand new to the market and are due to be launched by a well known company very soon. They look the same as the ones made by pro decoys http://www.prodecoy.co.uk/ But only these ones are alot lighter, they don't have the metal plate in them like the pro decoy ones do, 12 of these neoprene ones I have wiegh about the same as 3 plastic shells. £36 posted if you want them. I can send you a photo to your phone or email if you pm me.
  25. I am looking for a lithium battery to power a pigeon magnet, I have looked at the deben and wildhunter ones but wondered if anyone has tried one of these cheaper Chinese ones. They come in many different sizes from 2ah to 20ah and all seem to be in a blue plastic. They are less than half the price of the branded ones. I wondered if anyone had tried them for lamping and could tell me if the stated ah is true or wether it is exaggerated like many Chinese imports. Please look in the link below to get an idea of what I am talking about. This 18000mah battery is a 18ah for about £70 http://
