I decided to go have a go on the pigeons this morning it was a frosty start the wind was blowing from the south so I set up on the field with the cheap Chinese net covering the brolly the pigeon magnet was placed to the left with 15 decoys out 11 shells and 4 full bodied the first hour was quiet and I thought about moving but stuck it out .from 9am till 12.15 they came like rockets from as far as I could see. Rain and snow stopped me shooting ,I added 2 floaters and every bird I shot I just added to the pattern the dog had a good run out as usual. i took over a hour to pack up and the birds were still trying to drop in another good day and farmer well pleased with the result. End result 74 picked +2 dead ones I started with if the weather wasn’t as bad I am sure I would have done 100 + as I was staying till tea time i dropped them all off at the game dealers so nothing wasted

No trees at all in fact there's a lane this side of the motor way and a huge wood across the road  where there safe and it's just too small to be shooting safely unless it was a air gun  

I passed it today in the truck again and the  whole field was blue  they know there safe there

have you got permission  where the wood is .if the field is small should be easy to see the flight line cut them off on the way in to feed they will still decoy to a magnet on a adjacent field hope this helps
