  1. Its good that you enjoyed your first game shoot and I hope you choose to do many more and post the videos here. Like everything else its a learning experience, anyone born knowing it all is lucky. I recall my first driven days as me being not very relaxed, rushing things and anxious not to miss, or look stupid. Once you have a few shoots under your belt you will relax more, take your time, probably not feel the need to premount your gun, pick your birds and really enjoy the day. Relax is the key word.
  2. I've been away and just catching up with your new duck season's progress and as usual, I am impressed. Very clear videos, good shooting and some excellent dog work, Bear is really doing well, but Ted's long retrieve in the earlier video was spectacular. Thanks for sharing with us.
  3. Alls well that ends well, but it would be nice to some how let people living in that area know what these people are like, they do deserve to suffer some pain over this disgraceful episode.
  4. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this story.
  5. Glad the Mrs is fine and enjoy your holiday, you do realise that we will expect to see photos of mullet in neat rows.😉
  6. Lets hope that a backlash from this incident will lead to some clamp down on the, "do what they likeys". Intimidation fears from these people are very real, its how they avoid prosecution.
  7. Assuming this thread is referring to the murder of a policeman in Berkshire as he was " investigating a burglary", I cannot understand how 10 people can be arrested. Are burglars going around in large gangs ? There is a strange story behind this incident.

    The countersignatory on most applications is supposed to be necessary to prove you are who you say you are, hence the photo endorsement.. Why this has to be by someone from a list of so called "worthies" is ridiculous. Their job title does not guarantee they are worthy. I am in receipt of a private pension and every two years I have to get a statement signed by, " anyone who has known you for over 5 years" , this is to prove I am still alive. The signee has to print their name and address, which is obviously checkable and one assumes if any fraud or deception takes place they would be liable to prosecution, that should be sufficient deterrent for most people.
  9. Another good video and the way your dog was jumping over the straw reminds me of a springer 40 years ago, she was a great hurdler too.
  10. A fine result, with everything going your way, its nice when those days come along. You mention using up some old cartridges, as you did in a previous post. A few years ago I found an old supply of mostly wildfowling and other odd clay cartridges. It was quite exciting taking down high flying corvids with Alphamax No4 and various shot sizes of Hymax. I don't recall the details of the clay cartridges, but they had multicoloured cases and killed most things.
  11. Perseverance pays , once again. Well done and a good read.
  12. Well done with the ton plus, in my area the rape stubbles have been a bit slow, with most birds going straight for the wheat stubble.
  13. About the time Esso had the tiger promotion there was a General Election and I recall the local farmer having a sticker in his Landrover back window, "Put a Tory in your tank and your engine won't Labour", pretty far right in those days.😉 My wife recently discarded an old ironing board that had had constant use for 51 years, we bought it on a PG Tips promotion, vouchers plus 49/11 (fortynine shillings and eleven pence) .
  14. Congratulations on two great results and an enjoyable read. Awesome.
