    I always do find things go quiet late morning until early afternoon this time of Year,I guess there from roost feeding from 04:30 ish and need to take time out to digest the food! Sometimes it's like someone has turned a tap off! Everything stops.

    No mate they seem to keep coming,had a text off the farmer earlier he's had another 112 in the past 2 days. Point to note ,they are nearly all Jackie's. That ladder trap is so effective it's unbelievable,I did take some film footage on the phone to post on here,but it's too large to post.

    Sunshine crows

    Last time I was out I would say over 1000 birds lifted from the yard,but then they f*** off and at best trickle back,too much food around? Or just clever? Or possibly a bit of both. But we've taken well over a thousand birds between trap/ and shooting in the last couple of weeks,so maybe there just missing there friends lol.

    Hushpower morning

    They just keep coming,just short of 500 in the ladder trap now 87 yesterday in the trap,and 42 shot so a combined total of just short of a thousand birds. And there's still plenty around!
  10. Few hours this morning with the Hushpower,36 shot 27 picked,so that's 340 birds shot in the last few weeks.And 202 in the ladder trap in the last week,Still plenty around lol,but they are getting wiser.

    Few corvids today

    Just been out for a slab of shells,and phoned a mate to give me a hand next Saturday morning,so hopefully all goes to plan,hopefully looking at breaking the 100 bag size.

    Few corvids today

    yes mate,same place as last time.Pretty tricky to shoot them at the minute,the grass is so long you can't find them,so I have to try and drop them in a small clearing,makes it fun and concentrated the mind lol. Them clay shells I used today killed much better than the Fiocchi 3" shells.

    Few corvids today

    Just in from a good mornings sport with the Husher! picked 64,guess I shot another dozen on top of that ,they fell into long grass so I left them for Charlie. Running low on 3" carts so was using Gamebore 21/2" 9 shot 14 gram loads,seem to have done the business. Had a few good bags of late,guess 300+ in the last few weeks,and plenty more to go at. Also had 2 birds for the one shot today

    Few corvids today

    Nice mate,I'm out in the morning so fingers crossed I bag a few.I've noticed this time of Year at certain times its like turning a tap off,with little to no movement,normally mid morning and mid afternoon,maybe they take time out to digest food?

    Long haul holidays

    Yep I'm sure it is mate,British troops are there as we speak training anti poaching teams.It's over 20 years since I was last there,the gazelle was very tasty though lol. I've seen some very remote Masai villages,Archers post and Don dol areas,and witnessed some of there flash floods.
