  1. Yep, went last august and took English dosh to change once over there. Better rate
  2. Had a couple of hours drey poking to shift some tree rats and give newly planted trees and the birds a chance this spring. Ended with sixteen, finding two that must have dropped after we finished
  3. I have one. It has a screen in the back for viewing any footage. A lad I know has one that pings a text when it’s tripped. He’s turned up many times after getting a text to shoot a fox
  4. Bought a gen 1 recently. Setting up was a doddle, LRF is spot on and good distance was obtained with the on board IR, even on its lowest setting. Zeroing was simple, one shot, and an hour later I shot a fox with it on top of my 243

    Close up it is. I think the artist used a fine single bristle on most of it

    I’ve an original watercolour of a cock fight somewhere by C R Stock after Alken. Close up the artwork is amazing
  8. I had a rat in a fenn the other week and minutes after resetting it, I had a weasel in it. I actually heard it go off
  9. If it’s the Arse-pb then no and I’m a big bird watching fella. I’m a member of BTO and prefer their way of doing things.
  10. I’m 65 and still working. Could have taken my pension but I enjoy my job. I’ve been asked when I’m due to retire in a years time to stay on. When I think about it, I’ll have worked 50 years. That’s long enough isn’t it? There’s a guy working with me who’s 70. I can still get about on a fell after hounds
  11. I love the Harkila gear and have a few bits. It’s expensive stuff but does the job and as I’ve get older, luckily I’m able to afford such things. I sold their pro Hunter jacket two years ago and regretted it almost straight away. I’ve since bought the next version of the same jacket at a great price, expensive but not as expensive as what they’re going for now. Go for it fella, and have no regrets
  12. Local last night, a couple of miles up the road. Played the vixen in heat call and this heavyweight came crashing down the moor scattering woodcock, lapwings and hares in his haste to get there. He stopped long enough for me to deal him a Vmax pill. He was a heavy brute of a thing. Stayed another hour and had one in to the rabbit in distress call, but it winded me and away it went
  13. Good shooting. Bagged a big dog myself on Friday
  14. That’s a good bag. Sounds like a decent morning
  15. Third week on the bounce at this farm on a Friday. Previously, I’d shot one on the first visit, then two last week and last night I’d just got onto the field when I spotted this fella mooching around. The Hornet flattened him and I was on the way home after two minutes!
