  1. Pigeon Decoying

    Great offer Dave, I'm sure you'll have lots of interest. If only it was in suffolk.😊
  2. Hi all from Mid Suffolk

    Hello Gary, hope you enjoy and learn from pw. Skye
  3. What maps?

    Ask the farm manager / land owner for a map of land owned......my permissions offered a highlighted map showing all fields and boundaries. Skye.
  4. The combines are rolling!

    Driving through Ixworth suffolk this afternoon I watched the barley being cut. Hopefully my permission will start harvesting soon. Skye.

  8. FAC Renewal

    Mine runs out mid January......had my visit from feo 2 weeks ago. Suffolk. Skye.
  9. Wow....fantastic photos.
  10. When to return?

    Thanks for your comments...I wasn't using a rotary, just flocked shells. Having more free time Tuesday I was expecting better action, rain stopped me today, fingers crossed for tomorrow.
  11. When to return?

    I shoot between a couple of farms, trying to visit as often as work (and the wife) will allow. Sunday I shot 28 pigeons in a little over 2 hours,on fresh drilling, great conditions for decoying.Tuesday I thought I'll have another go, similar sort of day maybe a stronger breeze and a little more over cast....but the pigeons wouldn't come into the pattern, they were about in numbers, but flaring off before they were in range.Was it too soon to return to the same spot? If so how long would you leave it before returning ? Skye.
  12. Old style decoying

    Sounds like a good days decoying. It's interesting that you've had success without flappers etc, I've tried that myself recently with limited success. I'm out tomorrow but will take the rotary or flapper.....you never know!
  13. Third failure in a row.

    It is difficult at finding lines at the moment....maybe the pigeons have so much choice of stubbles and other feeding areas. Hopefully it will get easier as the fields get ploughed in.
  14. Huge bag......not needed!

    Well the evening was more productive the first farm visited 12 were shot then another 5at the next, the dogs were happy too. There's still plenty of crops to be cut , so happy days. Skye.
  15. Set up on the rape stubble about 9 o'clock this morning, pigeons coming in slowly,after an hour and a half I counted 7.....it improved after I'd shot the first bird and put it on the flapper, then the tractor appeared, he wasn't ploughing, but dragging some piece of kit maybe to break down the stubble?? couldn't believe it.....on my day off! I'll try my luck with the rabbits this evening....fingers crossed. Skye.
