  1. NRW have put out a public consultation for a review of the general license in Wales. I think that anyone that shoots in Wales should make an attempt to reply to this consultation. It is a bit strung out and needs to be read carefully.I fear that if there is a poor response they will just go ahead and bring in the new restrictions. Just as an example they want to remove the Magpie from general license because of the decrease in numbers,this along with several other recommendations. Some of the proposals are common sense and would not be restrictive,but with NRW being government run and with the Welsh government being heavily against shooting we have a battle on our hands.
  2. The shooting community in Wales have a battle on their hands when dealing with any department of the Welsh government. From NRW,the minister Leslie Griffith's and the majority of the government would love to see all shooting stopped in the Principality,driven,wildfowling,any form of vermin control,crop protection etc etc. Drakeford and his team of far left wing reformers will make life more and more uncomfortable for us to pursue our way of life. Every certificate holder in Wales should contact their SMs ,MPs and the ministers in charge of the department's telling them what you think of their unfair and perhaps illegal treatment of the shooting industry. Don't hold out much hope of a joined up reply.
  3. A big congratulations to all the organisations who contributed to this debate. The usual rubbish from the hateful trio in replying to this overwhelming bashing given to them. Well done.
  4. Thanks for the advice.
  5. Yes thanks for replying,thought of putting the seat down to allow for more room,but was hoping that someone had the name of a box that fitted without putting the seats down.I may use one of the strong boot covers.
  6. Has anyone fitted a dog box in a Suzuki Vitara,and what type ?.Just asking.
  7. You prey for weather like the last few days,when the weather god's shine on the wildfowler. Fowl on the foreshore and perfect conditions to make a bag . I must admit it got to a point when the thumb was so cold I had trouble getting the safety off. The dog was a bit chilly too. Pintail,teal,wigeon and mallard in numbers.Mild weather on the way and the end of the season in sight,had to make the most of it.
  8. I've used steel all season,when allowed to shoot.Had no problems with it , mostly Ely bio wad. Have been using steel since wildfowling became non toxic ,what seems to be a lifetime now,but it has improved 10:fold since then.
  9. Another cracking adventure.Pleased for you being able to get out.Wildfowling in Wales can still go ahead but you must be able to walk and not drive to the marsh. Always look forward to your videos.Good shooting and all the dogs had a busy morning.Looking forward to some more .
  10. Let's hope NRW will except that the countryside needs workable general licences,and not be driven by the anti shooting Welsh Government.
  11. S.Wales and Dyffyd Powis police have this week raided two properties and released 80 dogs,all stolen. Some have already been reunited with the owners.What will the courts do,slap them on the wrists and a poor fine.Released to do it all again.
  12. As long as they keep losing I don't care how deep their pockets are.
  13. Let's hope that the cost of their legal team plus the ten thousand will come to a tidy amount.If it was coming out of the terrible trio's pockets they would think twice about bringing these attacks on the shooting and conservation bodies. They will still carry on conning their followers into forking out their hard earned cash ,that's the third case they have lost now,must be getting expensive.
