  1. Good shooting Darren, especially that first bird you shot, it was a cracker.
  2. Thanks fella. Decent year Al. Pity the weather has been bad for the game season, one of my worst years for woodcock I can remember. Thanks, I shot terrible that day at the crows, that was my highlight. The woodcock can be difficult to make out, but the weather on those days made it tricky as it was so dull.
  3. Thanks for watching. Thanks Cranfield, both dogs are very different in their character. But both love being out hunting. The water lying down around that place was unreal. There was one place we hunted down that we had to turn & make our make back as the place was like a lake.
  4. This video is a small review of some of my favourite & most memorable shots from 2015 in Ireland. Shots are from decoying crows & pigeons in the summer to rough game shooting for Pheasants & Woodcock in the Winter. Please like, share & comment on my video.

  5. Myself and a couple of other fellas headed to County Fermanagh, Ireland just after Christmas to do a bit of walked up pheasant shooting, so here is the video. The terrain & shooting was a little different to our normal pheasant shoot, but it was a nice day out meeting new people & a change from the norm. I had 2 dogs with me which I switched half way through. So my cocker spaniel Dinky in the morning & Dawn my springer spaniel in the afternoon. We ended up with a total bag of 18 pheasants (mainly cock birds) including a couple of lovely melanistic birds & 4 crows. Please like, share & comment on the video. I would greatly appreciate some new subscribers, please see below for my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdXL__oYvbmKo0Ccm-vWRfw
  6. I just commented on the video. Very good fella!!!
  7. If ever there was a video to justify pheasant shooting it's that; look at the many little song birds coming to feed on spilt grain!!!

    Never had a problem thankfully; I love mine.
  9. Thanks fella, I appreciate the feedback. Thankfully this software is only a free trial, so I think I will just go back to movie maker.
  10. I couldn't believe I shot so bad. Don't get me wrong, the birds were difficult, but I should have been taking them down. My Father is retired so he looks after most of the gamekeeping work; he is 62 and not a bit of weight on him. He skips around this shoot like a man half his age!!! Thanks BB. The dogs certainly enjoy it, but they need a couple of days rest after hunting on our shoot.
  11. First problem I can see with the software is that it didn't save in 1080, just 480. Whereas, using the Windows Media Player has always been 1080. Thanks for watching Cranfield. I think I will go back to Windows Media Player, much less technical & will save in 1080p. To be honest it's a small family syndicate & we all use semi-autos, as these are the guns we always use for all types of shooting. I appreciate it isn't everyone's cup of tea for pheasants, but everyone is safe and it's a very informal shoot.
  12. This video is mainly from our pheasant shoot on Boxing Day 2015, in the Glens of Antrim Ireland. There are also a couple of clips at the start from 23rd December. I have tried a new editing software on this video and to be honest I found it very complicated. The software is Powerdirector Ultra 14, I have a month free trial, so I would be interested in getting a idea of how everyone thinks this one compares to the videos I have made previously using Windows Moviemaker. Onto the shooting. It was another dull windy day and the birds flew great, in fact, too good for me most of the day. It is without doubt the worst I have shot this season & I had some very poor misses, but also one very good fast pheasant that I some how hit!!! Thanks for watching, keep an eye out for my best of 2015 video coming up in the New Year. Please like the video, comment, share the video & subscribe to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdXL__oYvbmKo0Ccm-vWRfw Happy New Year
  13. Thanks goose. When I put the music in the words fitted in well, more a fluke than anything else. The shoot is actually in cushendall, which is mentioned in the music. Not sure I agree about the county, it's hard to beat antrim!!!
  14. We had a mizzle to start with & then it cleared up lovely.
  15. Cheers Al. I hope you got out & did some filming yesterday. I was out yesterday and my shooting was awful!!! Hopefully get the video up by Monday.
  16. Thanks. Merry christmas to yourself & yours!!! Thanks for watching as always cranfield. Cheers mate.
  17. Happy Christmas everyone. This is a video from last Saturday 19th December on the syndicate shoot, here in the Glens of Antrim Northern Ireland. The pheasants were very testing with 30-40 mph winds up their tail most of the day, but it made for good shooting. I spent most of the day beating so didn't get loads of footage, but captured some nice shots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPbEdMlD34k Please like, share, comment & subscribe to my channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdXL__oYvbmKo0Ccm-vWRfw Thanks for watching
  18. Thanks mate, hopefully you get a Woodcock before the season is finished. Happy Christmas!!!
  19. I replied on the video thread. It's scary how quick they grow up, my wee man is 16 months now & already being a menace. Happy christmas to you & yours.
  20. There is a lota boys on Facebook in Northern Ireland getting good numbers. I've had 2 outings with 3 birds & other outings couple of birds. The weather isn't tight enough to push them into lower ground yet, so I think a lot of them are in the forestries & mountains.
  21. It was brave & dry with us yesterday so I hopefully got some decent footage. We noticed recently that the birds are starting to return to the feeders, although the weather is still mild, the natural food sources must be going scarace.
  22. Well done Dave, can't believe the size of the 'wee' lad now. Glad the young dog is coming good, it's always very daunting knowing that you will have to replace a good dog.
  23. Yeah they are really hard to spot. I had thought about doing a still & pointing an arrow to where they flush, but the stills are too blurry. That pigeon was a good 40-50 yards away & if you watch the video again it almosts goes down as an after-thought, it flies on a bit after the 2nd shot & then collapses. After that she probably couldn't believe I missed that next woodcock, it was really easy & then it turned on a six-pence!!! My shooting comes & goes, but thankfully I've had more good days than bad recently. At the start of the summer I was shooting great at pigeons & crows, then I went a couple of weeks where I couldn't hit a thing. I like woodcock because you have little time to think, its instinctive, I seem to miss if I have too much time. The editing can be a bit of a pain from time to time, but I like looking back on my old videos and it will be nice to show my baby boy when he grows up. I do the editing while the soaps or x factor is on, so means I don't have to watch that carp!!! Thanks Al, I'll check out your latest video later. How are you getting on at the Pheasants?
  24. Here is a video of some rough shooting for woodcock from Ireland on the 15th December. Was a very dull & dark day so the footage isn't the best, but I had a good day none the less. Ended up with a bag of 3 woodcock & 2 pigeons. Hope you enjoy. Link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdXL__oYvbmKo0Ccm-vWRfw
