  1. Theres no shortage of woodpigeomns were i shoot. Ive used steel shot (28 no 7s trap loads)for 14 years and have never had a problem selling them. I shoot for pest control over 22 different farms and would lose at least 50% of permissions if not shooting pests especially woodies. there are markets out there if you look hard enough. i work 3 dogs so the meat would never go to waste.
  2. where in ayrshire did you pattern plate your gun.
  3. marples are made by irwin these days not the same anymore.
  4. I was rummaging through a freinds abandoned farm house and came across the old gun cabinet (glass display unit) with an old brocock air rifle in it. It was dark so not able to see much.Phone and torch in car. This gun appeared to have a bolt action. Is it worth restoring (40 plus yrs since house in use) I intend to return next week for photos etc.
  5. @ endfieldspares. Where do you get the bruising thing from. I shot flighting duck over stubbles twice in januaryall in excess of thirty yds and all fell on barley stubble and strawberry plants. all were processed by me for the food chain. No birds showed bruising from 35 grams number 3 steel shot nor from hitting the ground..
  6. I have aquired approimately 200 12 gauge three and half and three inch 35 gram mostly number 3 shot magnums but they are rejects from clever mirage. The question is are they worth salvaeing the components. Ive reloaded for centrefire for 15 years if required i used a kinetic hammer to redo cartridge but never for shotgun. If worth doing they are free anyone to collect. Im in east ayrshire.
  7. Ayrshire wildfowlers Associtation
  8. Another vote for Brian Webster. Exellant service.
  9. Ive lived in Scotland for 46 yrs but am not Scottish but would have been proud to have been.
  10. Will someone Explain how the shotkam is set up. I dont have or intend to get one.
  11. I would ditch the camera for a few sessions at the pigeons and concentrate on shooting woodies. Sussing where you are going wrong by watching film is of no use to you at woodies way to late. Use shotcam at skeet and film stations you are struggling with then maybe replay and adjust if you know where to. Repeat see a coach or have someone who is a regular pigeon shooter stand with you in hide.
  12. Get a lesson with a coach booked too many amateur coaches on here. They cannot see where you are going wrong. If not taking a lesson get on a pattern plate but even then you need someone who is knowageble on these things to accompany you.Shooting a 50 bird skeet round will not teach you anything if you dont know where you are missing. Good luck.
  13. Are we talking standing or laid crops. Im currently shooting over laid crops by request from two farmers. one is laid so much that only the tram lines are standing. ive asked both owners will they still be able to harvest laid barley. Yes from both. I use 3 dogs at times and no complaints.
