  1. Morning all Apologies if this has been covered previously, I have obviously missed it if it has been. I would just like to ask if anyone has given the A-TEC shot gun silencer a real test on the pigeons ( Full day). If you have can you let me know how it effected your shooting, if at all, or did you get to grips with it quite quick. I would be looking to use standard 32g no6 loads. The permission we currently shoot is shrinking rapidly due to new housing estates popping up so I am looking at all options with a view to upsetting as few people as possible. I would als
  2. Hello, I've recently moved to the Norfolk area and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to getting permission to shoot on some local landowners land. I'm from and currently serve in the british army and know how to shoot well with my own kit. I do have some hunting experience and i'm also a BASC member to which comes with insurance. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. The sheriff says anytime you need advice on safety just give him a ring.If that goes off he,l need a new ring for sure
  4. Just been out for my first experiance pigeon shooting with a shooting friend of mine, had an awesome evening although I’m told it was a quiet one! And definitely got the bug. Got me wondering though, what are people’s experiences with their gun dogs and long term exposure to the noise. Have any of you more experienced hunters seen any effects of this or found a way to protect their canine partners whilst on the shoot? Looking forward to hearing some experiences from folks. Cheers
  5. Went to a friends place in Pwllheli ,for a camping weekend and as a nice freeby was invited to 2 hours shooting on a field of flattened barley.Well started with a recon and 5 pigeons and 30plus jackdaws were in and out of this corner patch so we sussed a place for the hide and agreed 4pm start. Trouble is a working farmer doesnt do time so we started at 4.30 ,set up the deeks into the wind and got the hide <landrover tarp> up in a gorse hedge and waited .Well bloomin birds wouldnt play at all ,we could hear the Jackdaws to our left and the odd high high flyer went over ignoring the deek
  6. His all, please can someone tell me the best way to get permission to shoot on a farmers land. Thanks
  7. Hi, My mate and I would like to try pigeon shooting. We are both over 40 and live in Monmouthshire. Would anyone be willing to show us how it's done. Sorry but we don't have our own land.
  8. It's got to that time when I need to buy some more cartridges, i was just interested to see what everyone's suggestions were for an economical cartridge for walking around doing some rough shooting (not "game", just vermin). I've been using Hull superfast but i'm up for a change. I would like to try some of "Proper cartridges" cartridges but where i am it's very hard to get hold of them... I know this will cause a lot of discussion but you don't learn by not asking questions... Cheers - Max
  9. So the other day, my friend at how to hunting invites me to this farmers land to make a dent in his ferrel pigeon population, 100 or more he said! well i jumped at the chance. We set off on a winters snowy day at about 3 so we could catch light and we set up in no less than an hour. Camp soon got dark and we found the torches and nitesite very useful at this point, we set up our 177 and 22 and got popping!! we collected 40 head or so in the first 3 hours!! We hadnt had a day like this in a long time... as we reloaded we noticed that our food was missing we had brought, following a small, in
  10. GOLD! We hit gold on the 28th of March when a local farmer asked for our assistance in denting the population of a derelict shed and derelict house filled with ferells, so we walked the quarter of a mile road from the gate we pulled up at to our destination, 4 guns out of the 6 ready huntsmen, our thoughts were 2 guns can lead one side of the shed and 1 gun in the shed and 1 gun on the other side of a smaller open plan, all shooting north for safety in a (more or less) straight line, radios and signal calls learnt for contact with a 5 minute break to pick up and talk between, on this days sho
  11. I really would appreciate it if anyone has any land around Lincolnshire (I'm in the Bourne area) that I can do some decoying on. Thanks everyone. I have a shotgun cert and experience in pigeon shooting, I also pick up cartridges !. Thanks again.
  12. Hi, After many of months/years trying to get permission for shooting and failing, every farm owner I ask already either rents the land out or has a friend shooting on the land. PLEASE has anyone got some pigeon shooting in Cheshire/North West for me? Pick up ALL spent cartridges and will not trample crops. Full shotgun licence can be shown on request. PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME AND GET IN TOUCH!! Thanks, Jake.
  13. As I said above I have trouble knowing the range of my shotgun ,45% of shots I don"t take is because I am not sure, The other 55% is because I sort of freeze I will aim and follow but don"t take the shot ,TIPS PLEASE?
  14. Hi I'm new to this site and this sport I have already shot a few pigeons and would like to know the best way to breast them?
  15. Has anyone used the English Oak clear view netting by Jack Pyke? Would you recommend this or stick to traditional camo net? The net looks very transparent, but if placed in front of trees should give good screening.Ed
  16. Hi does anyone have any shooting permissions in South Wales, I have been shooting for a few years but have never had many places to shoot and am new to Cardiff moving up here from cornwall. If you have a farm or know of a farmer who wouldn't mind someone just sitting in a field decoying some pigeons could you post yours or there contact info. Thanks any help would be appreciated.
  17. What fields decoy best this time of year and is it worth me doing it???
  18. Just wondering if any chaps on here would be interested in Trading some Pigeon Shooting For some Bass & Bream Fishing, heading out from Christchurch in Dorset http://www.adaytotrade.com/days/109/bream-amp-bass-fishing-from-christchurch-dorset/
  19. You will not need a shotgun certificate, if your friend is with you and he currently holds a in date shotgun certificate! Tom
  20. I got the sam neyt crow caller from www.lakesidecalls.co.uk a few days ago, still practicing with it before i can us it out in the field, but if it sounds anything like the video it sound be great calling them in,
  21. Our business is primarily shooting high volumn doves but we've been shooting pigeons over decoys the last couple of years. Now I'm addicted! I prefer it to shooting doves! Anyone else had experience shooting in Argentina? The attached photo is the property of Isaias Miciu Nicolaevici, an amazing Argentine photographer. Please do not copy or use without express written permission of the photographer.
  22. Hi all, I took 2 mates of mine along with Tony (Weekendrifle) of this forum, We all met at my house at 0700 just a 10 minute drive to the field. We arrived shortly after got set up in the field with the wind blowing at 16-20MPH, excellent for pigeon shooting, no sooner had we completed setting out the decoys and the spinner the Pigeons started coming. The day before i had seen about 2000 Pigeons on this field without a word of a lie, they started coming in numbers about 10 or 12. after half an hour Tony and i were building a nice little bag, Tony being new to shooting over decoys was slow to
  23. As the title suggests this was an arrangement to meet up with Tony (aka Weekendrifle a member off THL but he is mainly into air rifle shooting. I answered a post of Tony's asking for some assistance with his permission but offered to take him with us on all my permissions, i had arranged with Tony that i would meet up with him on the Tues 02.0812 which turned out to be 4 days after i ended up in hospital with Pulmonary Embolisms, Tony was informed of my problem and from that day whilst in Hospital Tony text me almost every day, This was from a lad that i had never met, i knew from the offset t
