  1. I'm selling my Schmidt bender stalking scope. As above 6x42 German made reticule 2 (centre post and cross bar). It shows the usual marks associated with a hunting scope but the optics are crystal clear. This is a standard ring mounted scope not a fixed rail. Ideal scope for a stalking rifle. I will add pictures later. Asking £290 shipped. Thanks Mark.
  2. You wont go wrong with either if you stick to those 2 makes. Been shooting fabarms for 5 or 6 seasons. Guy i shoot with has had his 7 or 8 seasons. Another few of my friends shoot them too. Never had a problem with them and we're very hard on autos. Cycle everything from the lightest trap loads to the heaviest goose loads. Great handling guns. Nothing wrong with benellis either although i have seen them jam on lighter loads. To the best of my knowledge fabarm dont make an auto which is 3 1/2" chambered if this is an issue for you. Atb Mark

They were 2 combo packs of a baby mojo and a floating mojo. I decided to keep the 2 floaters for myself and sell the 2 babys off. £75 each. £4 p&p

    What Cartridges And Chokes For Geese ... And Ducks?!?

    Agreed Mik. 36 gram 5's will shoot geese every bit as far and every bit as dead as 56 gram 1's + faster onto the next bird due to less recoil. Anything short of full choke is for girls!!

    Goose Help

    The canadas are spreading out well. No shortage of good canada calls out there. I'd go for one of the poly carbonate calls like zinc, primos or buck gardner calls. All will call geese when you get used to blowing them. 20 snow's would be a nice sight. Id settle for 1, preferably at 25 yards with his feet down!!

    Best Duck Callz

    Buck gardner double nasty would be my choice for a budget mallard but there are lots of good calls out there. Haydels, duck comander calls both sound well in the right hands.

    Goose Help

    Banagher in co.offaly i assume. No lead ban in the south yet as far as i know. Stick to the good old lead as long as you can. Do you know what type of geese you have? Down there i imagine there grey geese of some sort, either greylags or whitefronts. The later are protected. For greylags something like 40grams of 4 or 5 will do your job well. Rc's, B&p's or noble sports are all worth having. Rc 40 semi magnums in 5 would be my choice if you can get your hands on them. Will advise you on calls when i know what type of geese you have.

    Cartridge Choice

    Being from Ireland i can shoot them all with lead as long as its not over water. B&P 36g 5's or 6's will do all. No need to carry 5 different boxes of shells!!

    Advice On Decoying

    Quite easy to tell the difference. A snow goose is only about half the size of a greylag they have many different plumage phases but an adult will be pure white with black wing tips. 1st year birds are a similar grey to a greylag but have a white head. You would be much more likely to see them in with a flock of pinks then greylags. Domestic geese being originally bred from greylags call like greylags. Snows make a 2 note call similar to whitefronts or pinks.

    Advice On Decoying

    Greys generally fly early, with the exceptions of very frosty mornings, mornings with heavy fog or in and around a full moon, they should start to arrive at your feed fields at the first crack of daylight . They are the wariest of all the goose species so make sure your well covered up. They have a habit of flying high so good cover overhead is a must!! As far as calls go dont overdo it. There really easy to overcall. If your not used to blowing a call at them dont try to reproduce the skirls you hear them make as they fly, they make a soft gaggle sound, say ha ha ha ha ha into the call and leave it at that. Allow them to circle the field, just because there flying high away from you dosnt mean you should step it up on the call as you would with canada geese. Let them work, if there interested they will come back around. Most important is to watch your geese, try to observe where there coming from, what time there arriving, are they coming in many small bunches or a few big flocks ( you will find it much easier to pull small groups then big flocks). As for setting up the night before personally i wouldnt, You run the risk of not seeing the geese if there ready to leave for roost and scaring them out of the field. If you do put them out of the field the night before you may not see them the next day at all and if you do they are much more likely to arrive in one big flock. Also pay attention to wind direction. If you set up the night before the wind may change direction and leave your geese nowhere to land. They need good room to work. Like any birds they want to land head to the wind so keep this in mind. Greys will decoy differently to canada geese, where canadas will try to slide along your spread and land in the hole at the front much like diving ducks, greylags will pick a hole in your decoys and fall into it. For this reason you can set your decoys much further out then you would for canadas. Minimum gap between decoys for greylags about 10 to 12 feet with no particular pattern. They will pick out the gaps in the decoys put out there feet and back peddle into your spread. Give them hell!! Good luck, when they work for you there the finest wildfowl of all to hunt! Atb Mark Ohh and the white geese are most likely greylag x domestic geese or pure domestic geese. Get them shot, they eat well!!

    Anyone Fed A Flight Pond With Apples?

    If they start to ferment you'll have drunk ducks!! Twice as easy to shoot. You'll know the ones that have eat them, they wont be able to fly!!
