  1. Was it these as that's what we used to get chairman
  2. Just spoken to the Natural England call centre who have told me the following. At the moment a licence is needed for each farm that you have permission to shoot and full addresses and grid references are required with a good reason to shoot. When I stated that I have permission on18 farms so would require 18 individual applications, his reply was un printable! He then stated that on Monday, a new general licence was due to be issued that was in essence, the same arrangement as the old withdrawn one but with specific named species and there would be no application required from shooters or farmers. If this is correct then problem solved but wait and see. Chairman

  8. Looking for a good used beretta side by side 20 bore Thanks Chairman
  9. I have a 10 month springer bitch who is away for training and has been progressing extremely well. In the four months she has been in the kennels she has had her first season at 6 months which the trainer noticed lasted some 10 days longer than he would have expected and then she had a phantom pregnancy. She is now over and showing no signs this phantom pregnancy but the trainer is saying that she has gone from an eager intelligent bitch to one who is not attentive and is struggling to accept further instruction. She has also started to dirty in her kennel which is very unusual. It would appear that she has a hormone problem as all the trainers dogs are sniffing and cocking their legs wherever she has been just as if she was in season which she isn't. I have spoken to 2 vets who both say they have never heard of the situation and suggest that we just wait to see what happens later but both the trainer and I would like to know what the possible cause and cure could be. The trainer has fifty years experience as a trainer, spaniel breeder and is a field trial judge so it's not because the dog has gone as far as possible in her training it's just something is upsetting her balance and causing her to be all over the place just like she is in season. Any suggestions are very welcome. I am arranging to have her ovaries scanned later this week Chairman
  10. My springer is rock steady to dummies sits and stays in a rabbit pen, will stay when a cage of pigeons is opened in front of her but, When out in the field she has learnt that a shot means fun and runs in as soon as she hears the safety catch come off My fault totally taking her shooting before she was steady and ready. Don't make the same mistake follow what others say instead of what you think you know and you should with luck be able to correct the problem in time With my dog I have been shown my errors by a professional trainer and am now working on the problem His answer when asked how to correct the problem, simple, don't take her shooting until she is ready Chairman
  11. First shotgun I ever shot when I was about 12 40 years later I own 4 a multi choke with all chokes a 36 inch goose gun a 28 inch mk1 and a 28 inch mk2 I also had a South African police issue but as it was 11 bore and needed braised cased ammo I could not use it so I sold it Love collecting them and using them Chairman
  12. The last six months has been something I would never wish to experience again and to keep it short, I was diagnosed with bowel cancer in January and ten days later had surgery that was a success with all the tumour removed. Now I have six months of chemo and then with luck, should get a ticket for a minimum of five years. The point of this post is to say how wonderful the McMillan nurses were in helping both me and my family come to terms with the dreaded C word and quite frankly, I am not to sure that I could have don't it without their support so, as I have to take the grand total of 1910 pills during the time on chemotherapy, I have decided to attempt to raise one pound for each pill and this is where the pigeon watch community come in. I am the chairman and previous owner of a successful clay pigeon club in somerset and I want to organise a clay shoot to raise some of this money and I would love to hear your ideas as to what to include over and above the normal 50 bird sporting shoot. So far I have considered an additional 10 to 20 mini one man flush and a light hearted attempt at the world record for breaking 25 clays,so over to you. Any suggestion as to how you would consider a good way to part with your money would be gratefully received and if possible included within the shoot program. There would obviously be prizes for top gun in each event and overall high gun. Thanks for taking the time to read this post Bob Thorne Chairman
