  1. Found a nice little line on Wednesday. Stepped on a wasp nest finding a place to hide. Got stung , dog got stung worse. Not a good start . The fields erupted with pigeons after my first shots.Shot really well for the first half hour,then my shooting got progressively worse. Nice short session though managed 32 pigeons in 2 hours. Using Hull superfast pigeon 29g 6 .
  2. Thanks WalkedUp. I think the second bird often flaring away is a extremely difficult shot to get. I just save the cartridge now unless a nicer shot presents itself.
  3. Rooks and Jackdaws were hitting a maize clamp . It' was difficult to shoot at the clamp so I decided to try and shoot them on their flight line to it. Put some decoys on a ploughed field under the line. Shot 103 in total in 7 hours . Camera battery died after 4 hours.
  4. Sounds perfect. My kind of shooting.
  5. Your videos are great Big Al. I use a hero 3 + and use the narrow setting. I think any other setting makes every target look further than they are. Though you do need to make sure its pointing correctly .I'm sure you will do a better job than me . Keep the videos coming.
  6. I've shot pigeons over winter linseed many times. Keep your eye on it.
  7. Great shooting both of you. I loved the low incoming grouse like shots. You made them look easy. Not sure what setting you use on your go pro but I find the narrow fov setting is the best .
  8. Thanks Scully.I was very fortunate to be invited on such a great shoot.
  9. I don't think the shotkam alters the way I shoot. I guess because a pheasant will keep its line the same after the first shot miss, means you can go back and have another go with the second barrel. Unlike a pigeon which will usually take off on a new path after the bang. I often dont fire the second barrel after a clean missed first barrel pigeon when flightline shooting. I think that the following the bird down thought only enters my head, when I can see I've killed it. Interesting comment though. I'd not thought about. Thanks for the comments everyone. No. You only see it in the video footage.
  10. A busy drive from last season. My brother was stood on the peg to my right, so there was a bit of poaching going on. We were stood with a dam wall at our backs, so it was sometimes difficult to get a second shot or follow the birds down.
  11. Yeah they were up there. Yea they are so much faster than the pigeons I'm used to. I tried to stretch the lead a bit more.Thanks JDog, hope your well. Thanks . 34g no 4. Thanks Konnie
