Back up at the shoot


Recommended Posts

The land owner where we shot the fox asked if i could do something about the hordes of canada geese that are flying into his fields everyday. They are trampling the grass, eating it and defacating everywhere. Anyhow i thought i would go this morning and take the mouse gun. Driving within range then shooting off the drivers mirror is the order of the day because they are used to vehicles. If you stop and get out they lift straight away. I will be back in a few days. Ther are plenty of Fallow about as well.

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 .

I can lend you one of them new fangled shotguns if you want, you could always shoot it sideways if it makes you feel better 😁👍

I'd be better off throwing cartridges at the birds than using a topsy turvy gun 🤣

Been looking on Guntrader at Ugartchea shotguns ...can pick up a 2nd hand one for £80 -£90 so will need to see how much repair will be 🤔

Uglies are a safe bet mate.

You can have my Tula hammer gun if you want to come and get it.

A walk around the shoot this evening to bash a few bunnies, while it was still early I had a walk over the far side towards the caravan park, the noise coming from the place was ridiculous and there wasn’t an animal in sight so it was back around the farm for a bit of peace and quiet, I don’t know what was wrong with me tonight but I couldn’t hit a barn door, I was starting to doubt the rifle then took a clean head shot at 143 paces, so it turns out it was just me ☹️

Purely because there’s so many of them on this land and they don’t go to waste, the other places I shoot over spring and into late summer, I don’t shoot them
