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 .

Had to make a start on the bucks too .

Wow where do you get those giant black arrows ,my foxing will improve no end if theyre followed by giant black arrows :lol:

Joking aside nice to see your shoots going ahead and young Hugo,s earning his climbing frame with some good old fashioned Victorian child labour .

Our Partridge,s are wiley as a fox and will run away rather than fly ,they must know the "no ground game rule" 

We have nowt but bother with them bloody black arrows, pointing out where all the game is to the predators 😂

I was thinking about going and sitting around the barn tomorrow where the crows are hitting the pheasants along a fence line with the little .22lr, there about half a dozen dropping into the grass and walking along the fence, there was easily 25 broken eggs along a small section of fence today  ☹️

Well I manage to execute 3 of the egg munchers, took the missus with me. Never again, doesn’t like walking, doesn’t like the smell, doesn’t like things buzzing around her ( who does ) doesn’t like the countryside. Jesus, I’ve got a head ache 🤕 we did see a lovely head of fallow, 7 in total, only managed to get a picture on my phone

Any linnets in that gorse?
