Well there is no meat in the freezer for Bert and I don't want him going hungry so popped out for some bunnies even though it's a full moon as when I left it was covered by cloud and it looked ok. On arrival at the ground the bloody clouds disappeared,  the moon came out and it was like daylight with not a breath of wind. Not many rabbits about , no wonder 😡 anyway plodded on and couldn't believe I ended up with 10. Bert wont go hungry tomorrow 😁


I was in a similar situation, went back to the sheep farm on the hunt for another monster fox, got there, nice and cloudy, walking around, plenty of stuff about, rabbits, roe, hares and pigs, got to where I wanted to be and the clouds cleared and almost everything disappeared, so called it a night and shot half a dozen rabbits on the way back to the car, I was almost disappointed when this 100+ yarder’s head was still attached 😂

Had to make a start on the bucks too .    

It’s been frosty the last couple of mornings, it’s very welcome , hopefully it will kill a few bugs . Unfortunately the Maize and cover crops don’t like it and they will soon be unviable as a drive .

Well our first shoot of the year went well. It was cold but dry and a bit of sun appeared. Bag was 122 head comprising of 57 duck 56 pheasant 7 partridge and 2 pigeon. My own contribution wa

Went out first light to hunt for a bird to cook when I happened on a roe buck feeding towards me.

He came down to 15yds and I didn't have my good camera 🤦‍♂️.

Anyway, he was that close I could hear him eating!

It became a half day but enjoyable the same .

6 guns 5 beaters only 14 birds but too still. No real wind to lift them and a couple disappeared into thick scrub.

A good craic at nosh time and the lockdown stomach to a punishment 🤣

Back to the shoot yesterday and it’s looking good, fingers crossed the birds will be ready by the 6th, something has wrecked a bird not far from Gordon’s pen, leaving a pile of feathers and what’s left of a drumstick 🍗 ☹️
