    My usual flightlines didn't materialise last year for some unknown reason . I might try and do a roost shooting video on Saturday.

    We grew winter linseed about 15 years ago. We were told that pigeons don't eat it. They did. Had a few days shooting over it.Probably depends on what else is available for the pigeons to eat though.

    Treated wheat

    Agree and don't forget you are going to eat the pheasant after its eats the treated wheat as well. Not for me.

    fox red lab mistaken for fox

    Anybody know of a dog that was shot after being mistaken for a fox on a shoot? I certainly have not.

    Great report GingerCat, really enjoyed reading that. Thankyou. I've been having the same troubles , pigeon everywhere until I set up to try and shoot some.They just move to the other fields after a few shots . I've been out over 10 times since the start of February and my largest bag is 16 and I won't comment on my shot to kill ratio! I be out again tomorrow for more punishment.Good luck next time.
  6. Unfortunately not. I haven't found anyone who stocks them in my area yet. I will keep looking for them though.

    Great write up GingerCat. Seems like a perfect days pigeon shooting to me. Over forty pigeons shot on a flightine , fantastic stuff . I bet there wasn't many dollys. You guys need to get a headcam so I can watch .Please pretty Please.

    driven pheasant day

    It's very difficult to give advice without seeing you shoot. I would start with doing what you normally do and if that doesn't work swing the gun a little faster. I would use your normal cartridges as well.

    I'm going to disagree with ips and say they are normally faster than pigeon. Will agree about the holding their line and flying a more predictable path.
  11. Great write up . I think I'm going to have to try a few boxes of these superfast myself.

    What were the chances?

    I bet they were a bit tasty in the wind. Numbers are starting to build here , hope I can have a few hours similar to yours soon.

    Silly Crows

    I don't normally bother to leave the hide unless I've got a runner. My record is 42 before I had 1 and they still came in. Rooks, crows and jackdaws are very inquisitive I find.

    First and last opportunity.

    Nice report JDog . I've never known it so quite here in Staffordshire for pigeons. I can only dream of trying to shoot some long crossing pigeons or even running out of cartridges at the moment.
  15. I wish I was there.At least you got in the right spot. I couldn't get under them today even though I moved 4 times.
