An hour on the oil seed

Recommended Posts

An hour on the oil seed rape, with my mate, there was a massive amount of birds about but with there been so much rape in the surrounding fields you would get a few shots off then they would move on for 10 mins before the next group would come along, still some shooting is better than no shooting

put balloons about 10 yards out from the wood on bamboos sticks 6ft ones about every 60-70 years that will work on the wood and the fields haliam balloons are great .and you can leave them when you go the next days should be very good for you

Thanks for the advice, I like that balloon trick, I never thought of that, we do the bag on a stick and that works well, I gave up earlier to day and went to bother the crows on the farm

old cds work well put 2 or 3 between 2 bamboos the shine put the willys up them and you can leave them so they work for the farmer

We use cd’s in the pheasant pens I think they would work well where I’ve been shooting the last couple of days to keep them out the trees at the end of the field👍

I use 2 to 3 meters of red and white hazard tape on bamboo cane's , it whips around nicely in a breeze.
