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 .

Back to the farmer who breeds our ducks on Thursday night. I knew there was one about because I had been on Monday night and my mate shot a vixen. He had seen another but didn’t manage to get a shot at it. I thought I would leave it for a couple of nights then have another look. I set up on a track 200yds from the gate into the next field where I thought it would come from. I was set up for 10.15pm with the caller 50yds off to my right. I saw it in the next field about 10.50pm and switched the caller on. I had already preselected “rat distress “ and it was only a matter of seconds before it slid under the gate and raced up the track. I switched the drone on and it paused momentarily on the track around 150yds out. I had just settled the reticule on it when it decided to run in to the caller. I had to mute it otherwise it would have run straight to it. As it stopped to listen for its next meal I moved the reticule to its engine room and gently touched the Timney trigger. It had been a dog fox no more than 50yds away. Another that won’t be killing his stock.

I do eat them but in the months with an r in them. Just don't fancy them come the warm weather.

I've just started a stink pipe too 👍

Never had any idea about them until a short a while back when someone else posted something.

I'd be pleased to hear about success or otherwise!

Cheers :thumbs:

Ok, help me out, my lads dog, who comes out with us a bit, and goes mad after them, wont eat them at all until its cooked/boiled.  He eats plenty of other raw meat but refuses the rabbits until cooked, then can't get enough of them!?!?!

What's that all about????

I had a trip up to my mates place again this evening back around the game cover on pesty patrol as he’s had to re-drill it and not happy, after shooting a few I decided to give it a rest and go and give the fox I seen an hour, no fox so back up to second strip of cover for a couple of rabbits. A lovely couple of hours out and the gay’s were looking over me, which was nice of them 😁☺️

Don't know about that mate.

I boil some for my dog to kill parasites.
