Back up at the shoot


Recommended Posts

I keep my fingers crossed for you all and hope it works itself out 

will I didn’t see them cubs again, so after shooting them a few more rabbits I’ve headed back to the farm, just in time to watch and listen to the woodcock flighting out to feed, I’ve shot a couple more half grown hoppers around the veg patch and a crow that was raiding the pheasant nests, the field is littered with egg shells ☹️

Had to make a start on the bucks too .    

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

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 .

If you haven’t heard “ a country boy can survive “  by Hank Williams jr I suggest you all give it a listen . It’s now on my iPhone and I stick it on in the truck on the way to work. It’s lyrics are quite apt for today’s uncertain times . 
         Stick in there guys and remember

I'm sure I read someone grew some on their allotment? 

Another good tune is swamp music by lynyrd skynryd? Dunno if that's spelt right 😂

My Grandad used to grow his own tobacco, I remember it drying in his shed , he used to like a good shag 😂

Just sorted out the shoot days and it looks like I’ll have a day to offer in January, If it comes off I wouldn’t want any money for it but would like something in return, does anyone think this is a good idea, or should I just sell the day or shoot it myself

If you are like me I’m not that keen on shooting my own birds . I would be (now you are self employed) looking to sell the day and pocket the cash . If money isn’t the issue how about a raffle on here for charity?
