  1. Anyone going to the Northern Shooting Show this weekend In Harrogate? I’m there Saturday, the bonus is, I miss Charlies coronation, which will be plastered all over the telly the dawn ‘til dusk ??
  2. Picked up four myself recently off this place. Shot seven in total. Big fookers as well
  3. I turn the sound down, it’s bad enough listening to the shite commentary but the dramatic music really pisses me off ?
  4. Watched some recent clips on YouTube recently of London in the 60s. No fat cnuts then, everyone worked and wanted to. Think I read somewhere recently 80% of britains are obese or will be soon. When I feel I’ve put a pound or two on, I do something about it, why can’t others?
  5. Had a call out last night but nothing showed. Farmer had three lambs out near the farm on decent ground and ones disappeared. I’m not convinced it was a fox but sat out until midnight as you do. I’ll have a walk over later. Managed four big rats with the rimmy so not a wasted night
  6. I agree. I can’t fault my Wraith which is on my Hornet. Compared to the latest gear it’s old hat but boy does it do it’s job. Having said that, I’ll be buying an Alpex soon to go on the 243 ??
  7. Not normally but had it about a mile away on another spot ?
  8. ….After firing my Hornet, any ideas why? Recoil? Loose mount? I’d like to record what I shoot but with the IR knocking off I can’t ??
  9. I suspect these were dropped foxes. There was one on last week, but very cagey, didn’t want to know a call. This week two and both came in like trains and there was another watching as I was leaving!
  10. Popped up to the farm to do a recce for tomorrow night and a night ratting with the rimmy. I took the Hornet with me and threw a couple of rounds in my pocket just in case as I’d seen a fox outside the chicken run last week. A quick squeak on a new caller I’d bought recently and a vixen came flying in. Bang, down she went. I disposed of it and put my gear away ready to get off when I looked down the field again with the spotter and saw another right on her line. I dashed back for the rifle, got set up and pursed a squeak. Fox number two on the night after he came in really close ??
  11. Best shot was at 82 yards on a bunnie ?
  12. 22 on the bunnies, 22.250 on the fox ??
  13. Had a call from work to shift a few bunnies undermining an embankment. Managed 17. Spilled the guts onto the moor and stood a 100 yards away calling in Charlie. This vixen came in in a matter of minutes ??
  14. For those of a certain age, you’ll remember when Saturday afternoon was brilliant for sport on terrestrial television. Well, one of the most well known figures and presenters from those days has sadly passed away. I must admit I thought he’d gone a few years ago. RIP Dickie Davies
  15. Buy that man a pint and give the horse extra hay ????
