  1. Mind your buinesss dickhead all I wanted was help, so my memory isn’t as good as some

  3. Been fishing the Severn at Bridgnorth had some decent sized chub out. had a over night session a week ago had 12 in total barbel biggest 8lb 9
  4. After working pretty much non stop for the past couple years without any time off as such or holidays I want to treat myself in January after the Christmas rush is over and done with. What I'm hoping to do is travel to Scotland as I've never been and having been wanting to go for some time. So basically I want to spend a week or so up there just on my own (maybe take the pooch) I want the full experience stalking nothing to drastic I'm not after the throphys or anything just up in the highlands maybe just want some beautiful scenery big hills the lot. I'd also like to do some salmon or trout fishing where it's truly wild. On the wildfowl is also what I want to get at and maybe some walked up rough shooting. I just want a week out there doing what I love in a beautiful place. I don't want to spend a fortune and I'm not that bothered about all the graces and don't mind mucking in to help people out for them to help me. Don't mind traveling around and staying in different places if that's what I need to do. So I guess my questions are who do I talk to ? How do I set this all up? Any recommendations or places to avoid ? Any help appreciated Thanks Jack
  5. Had this problem very recent, after a lot of playing around I could not get enough on the axis to zero in. Turns out when I put the mounts on and tightened up they were tight on the left side and about 3mm apart on the right. After I took it off and tightend so there was equal gaps on both sides it sighted in to almost bang on just one click out, so might be worth checking imo
  6. So first trip of the ferreting season today. Took the new kits out sadly lost all my ferrets last year so all new kits. Was doing a nice little paddock full of sets done around 4 out of 10 was a little still over grown but muscled on plenty of well used holes fresh shit everywhere. On the 1 set around 10 holes I could here thumping so tried an extra ferret incase they were running the ferret about but still know avail. So my question do ferrets need education to learn to go deeper. They just don't seem to know what there doing piping in and out spent around 4 hours swapping and trying them but it wasn't happening. Any advice?
  7. I personally think garlic works well with rabbit try a little but be careful won't take to much to ruin it, or maybe try some wild garlic if you can get your hands on it
  8. When asking for what was tea I was always told chums and butter daycocks. Always thought it was bread and butter but who knows
  9. Hi just wondering if there's any kits going in the west midlands or Shropshire area after 2 gills from good working stock Thanks
  10. A couple of years ago I went out with the 22 to wait for a few rabbits to shoot for the ferrets. I was a warm summers night just loosing the sun I was sat down next to a five bar gate with the rifle just resting on it in the cover of the bushes. A few young rabbits appeared just grazing about 50 yrds exactly where I was expecting them. The grass was long I was watching through the scope not realy wanting to shoot them when I noticed the grass around 100yrds behind moving. I repositioned the rifle and waited. Then from the left hedge came a young fox cub bounding across to the rabbits chasing and scaring them back to the sanctuary of their humble aboad. Another fox came jumping from the long grass. Two lovely looking cubs with that fuuny orangey grey coat were about 50yrds away. I positioned to cross hairs on the first cubs ear. The other cub pounced and grabbed it's sibbling on its neck. I watched them play and chase each other for around 45mins it was amazing to see them I could of easily killed at least the one but it made me realise what's the point? It was causing no harm. The light was almost gone and they hadn't moved far in all the time I watched them. a croaking bark shouted from the distance and they scuttled off. I went back every night for the next two weeks and never saw them in fact I never saw another fox that season. Its a simple thing a most have seen it but its changed my out look on hunting not everything needs to die only those that are pests and they certainly weren't a best that summers night
  11. I was thinking either 3 or 4", what do you mean buy scrim? And also what did you use for attaching the sheeting to the net? Thanks
  12. I recon I can make a pigeon hide ive made loads of rabbit and fox nets and 100 yrd long net so want something new to test me. I'm a pigeon shooter and I've got a load of nets but fancy making my own. So my questions are what is the twine that they use it seems alot stronger than my long net twine, also where do I get green og rings? I'll keep a post uploaded of how I get on. Any help appreciated
  13. Another question where do I get coloured braided spun from?
  14. What's the thoughts on using a spun twine for fox nets? Surely it can hold the strength of a fox?
