Back up at the shoot


Recommended Posts

Pellet was about £340 last year, I’d expect another £100 a tonne this year, I’m working next door to my shoot secretary today and talking to him, he knows of 4 syndicates that ether can’t get birds or can’t afford them and are looking for days now

Up at the shoot first thing this morning, bird scare tape up around the pens, elec fences on and tested, water on and drinkers tested and adjusted, water butts filled again over the piggeries, I had l

Back up on the moor after a few rabbits and my god I needed the walk out after this week, I’m really enjoying the .22 at the minute and pushing it further than I would normally, it was a modest count

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 .

Keep the vermin down and let the birds breed a few

That's exactly what I'm doing at work mate. He's keen on me to do it more & more, paying me a bit more too. Got more traps out than ever before, zero my new hmr tomorrow 🤞. Lucky I get wheat from next door, mates rates. 

Put few duck tubes out too. Counted few skylarks & yellowhammers today & goldfinches nesting in woods. Not just the game that benefits.

People always want to be where they shouldn’t be and when you tell them to sod off they look at you as if your the idiot

Oh no, that's awful,  nothing worse when they are throwing themselves at you. You need a muzzleloader 😊

My grandson kept asking for us to go foxing while he is off school so i decided to take him on Wednesday night. I knew there was a fox knocking about at one particular farm that i go to, so we went there. It didn't take long to spot it mooching along a double hedge . It was perhaps a couple of hundred yards away but cattle kept walking into the line of fire. I put the caller on to try to keep it in the vicinity whilst the cattle moved on. Luckily they did so just as it decided to come a little closer and sit on a big pile of hardcore which i use for zeroing. The 243 made short work of a dog fox at 145 yards.
