  1. HI Guys Has anyone used one. Whats the differance between the normal on and the light version. Is there a better one out there? Cheers in advance for your input.
  2. I used to go out with a mate all the time but he would never leave the car or do any static calling. I always felt we were missing so much ground, i bought a thermal and he is still a lamp man so i always go on my own now. I prefer it as i can do as i please.
  3. I would just like to thank Bigmac for his super generosity. The boys are delighted mate. Thanks again, Sparky
  4. HI Jimmy What are you using for Bluing? I have a couple of old meteors and a cadet i want to do so any advice would be appreciated. Regards
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. Sorry to hear of your loss Ben. Sounds like he was a big part of your life. All the best, M.
  8. Well SL Im sure your mate will enjoy it up here there is always a warm welcome for good people with good humour.
  9. Guns were happy. We were short of beaters as some have vulnerable relatives so not taking chances.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!!!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. Cheers Ian. Thats a useful looking setup.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. Headed home from Helmsley to Stokesley so i went past your shoot. I bet those pheasants get some height off of those hillside woods!
