  1. Hi Ben I seem to have caught a lot more magpies this year as well and less crows. Had a good year on the crows last year though, maybe thats why?
  2. Hi Guys Took my two sons ferreting today for a local keeper. We got six before the rain started again! One had a bad case of my I think it's quite early for us in the north, is anyone else seeing it yet?
  3. Sorry to hear of your loss Ben. Sounds like he was a big part of your life. All the best, M.
  4. Well SL Im sure your mate will enjoy it up here there is always a warm welcome for good people with good humour.
  5. Guns were happy. We were short of beaters as some have vulnerable relatives so not taking chances.
  6. Good watch that Stav. Had a good boxing day shoot birds which considering we only had half our normal beating team is a great result.
  7. Ahh Tall trees! That brings back some memories young farmers used to organise bus trips there from my area of Northumberland we never used to get home before daybreak, usually in some inebriated state!!!
  8. Its full of trout. We dont feed it for ducks, i have had really mixed results with reared ones as well so i will give it a couple of years till i forget about my bad experiances then try again!
  9. Well guys out feeding today, so muddy i had to leave the trailer at the farm. This is where we usually have our elevenses, on the flipside a good shoot yesterday 103 in the bag.
  10. Cheers Ian. Thats a useful looking setup.
  11. Hi Ian Would you post a photo of your Jimny set up as im loking for ideas for a dedicated shooting vehicle. Good result and good story.
  12. I have a half gun on a driven shoot but when you run spaniels rough shooting is where it's at. Foxhunter is spot on
  13. I feel sorry for Baldcoot! I sometimes forget to count my blessings, i have a rough shoot just out side the village and the more formal driven shoot I'm in is 7 miles away. The rough shoot is more of a conservation project as the farmer and i are keen to look after the Grey Partridge and lapwing populations we have, so a lot of vermin control seems to be paying off. I get to walk around and rough shoot when ever i want but don't shoot any greys. I took the Kids 28 bore around yesterday, probably walked about 7 miles, what a joy to shoot and carry the little gun is. Shot thre
  14. Well I was complaining about the amount of water I had to cart around as we got our birds in early July. I can see I seem to have got the timing right this year for change! I feel for you lads with young poults in this weather.
  15. Headed home from Helmsley to Stokesley so i went past your shoot. I bet those pheasants get some height off of those hillside woods!
  16. Hi Stavross Just come back from my hols in North york moors. For a change i drove down through Stokesley into Rosedale Abbey. I assume your syndicate land is around the Stokesley area? Looks a lovely spot for a pheasant shoot. Master tech.
  17. Yes guys i know what you mean but when we cant get lead shot anymore! The ATEC is steel proofed.
  18. I knew i would get some straight answers from you Guys. If you could update us on your results Dervburner as it may influence my purchase. Thanks again , anyone else with any experience feel free to comment. Regards, Mastertech
  19. Hi Guys I am thinking of buying a semi auto for using around pheasant pens,dairy farms and for night time rabbit control. I am going to get an atec moderator for it and there will be times when i will want to use subsonic cartridges as well. Has anyone had any experience with this. Would i be better of with inertia or a gas action or should i just opt for a pump? Regards, Mastertech
  20. I know what you mean pirate 9000 its all biased towards the urban majority.
  21. I dont condone wild life crime but why do the BBC insist on trying to tar everyone with the same brush. Why are the RSPB given so much air time compared to BASC?
  22. Did anyone see that bunch of bunny huggers on countryfile today.
