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

Was at a bbq last night with a few mates who beat for the big estate shoot where I live, we were talking about the charity clay shoot that happened a few weeks back! I nearly fell over when me ma

Had to make a start on the bucks too .

Got a phone call this afternoon, someone saying a lad I know had given him my number and that he’d had a lot of chickens killed and a couple of goat kids on his small holding and could I go and do something about it, so I said I’d go up after work today, so off I went to get the lay of the land, taking a cage trap with me, when I got there it’s basically a couple of fields split into a few paddocks that’s owned by a gypsy and rented to gypsy’s to keep the horses, chickens, goats, ducks what ever they like in, but we won’t hold that against him because he seemed a sound lad and is just sick of his little girl being upset that her pets are being killed, so I set the trap along the side of the shed and told him to ring me if there’s anything in it and I’d come up and sort it for him and I’d do a few hours up there on a night with the rifle, now I know quite a few gypsy’s and I know a lot of people don’t have a good word to say about them, but I’ve found them to be fine as long as you don’t involve yourself in there business and if you do them a good turn they are always very grateful and can be quite generous, we’ll see how it goes, it’s not a nice place to walk around because it’s a sh*t hole so this is just a pest control job

I’m doing this more as a favour to the lad who gave him my number but to be fair I’ve never had any problems with them as long as we set things straight from the start, he knows if I go up with the rifle there has to be no one there and he’s told me where I can and can’t go, all he wants is the foxes gone and if he doesn’t stick to what I say, I won’t be doing it, so we’ll get on just fine

As my farmer mate said, gypsy’s are just farmers that don’t grow crops or have stock, if he said to me can I come with you, or can I have a go then I’d have some concerns and the answers would be no but he just wants a job done, it’s the same as anyone else asking me to do the same, he must be ok because the lad who gave him my number is no mug and has known him for a long time and if he says he’s ok that’s ok with me

I've had plenty of dealings with gypsies. On the whole, I like them, as much as I like anyone else (though i did date a gypsy girl in hull for a while - that was a mistake!) They call a spade a spade, generally keep themselves to themselves & look after their own. I'd much rather deal with a rural gypsy who has some land, horses chickens etc than with some inner city scrotesack.

And if you've ever had any interest in lurchers (I know lot of us) then it's unavoidable you'll deal with them.

Got to disagree .......parasites of society that rob anything they can get there hands on. No morals or conscience in the way they affect the rest of society .........conning vulnerable old people and resorting to violence and intimidation without any thought for others.

Not to mention non payment of taxes etc.
