Hello From South Wales

Recommended Posts

Good evening chaps and a Happy New Year to you all.

Its been a number of years since I was last knocking about on here so thought id introduce myself again. I haven't hunted since about 2011 when I was 14, since found women and beer etc. etc. You know how it goes 😂.

Well I've just turned the ripe old age of 23 and found the bug again. My Lurcher Reggie is now 17 months old and has a strong prey drive so Im very keen to get him out working. Reggie was one of dogs from the last litter from my bitch who I just couldn't help but keep. His mother is a Bedlington x Whippet and his father was a Greyhound x Bull Terrier x Saluki. At 17 months he now stands roughly 27'' to the shoulder and has got much bigger than both his mother and father. 

Aside from the dog, I still have my Air Arms s410 carbine which I've just fitted a Deben bi-pod to this week (Im also in the market for a new scope so feel free to suggest any recommendations). Managed to get out yesterday and get one grey. I've also just fitted a Brattonsound  cabinet in the house and will be sending off my SGC application this week so fingers crossed. Hoping to get into all manner of hunting with the main intention of having food for the pot and just getting out and enjoying the bloody outdoors again.

If anyone is local to the south wales area and would like to go out some time, feel free to pm me and we can have a natter.

Once again, Happy New Year to you all and I hope to see you around

Brad.

Nice area around mamhilad and goytre.Had a pint in The Star and Horseshoes the other day,next time I'm up that way going to have a meal in Horseshoes,food looks stunning and proper cosy country pub with plenty of history. We usually goto Pontypool harvester.

Have you hunted in that area?

My mates/mate just bought a new build in Little Mill,absolutely love the area.Been to waen-y-clare a good few years ago,but not for food,had a pint round back in beer garden.

Had permission years ago when Lord Raglan was alive in Cefn tilla court sorting the rabbits out,they were digging up his roseadendrams,always remember when we use to go there he would spend ages showing us his classic cars.He even had one inside his house,don't ask me how he got it in there??

Good shout on the rats,yes a cold one last night,look forward to see the pictures.
