  1. Well it does they don't want this anymore than the Ukrainian people but they are being arrested for protesting and what can they do putin won't stand for any backlash from his own people he will silence them and even worse if they stand up to him
  2. went out today with some hope with a strong wind blowing recent outings on rape haven't been good to say the least, and again today i drove to a block of rape 3 fields separated from each other with one field that is unshootable roads and houses surrounding it and as the title that's the field they wanted birds piling in from all directions great, i spotted a line coming over the lane across a wheat field to the rape so only hope was set up on the wheat field and intercept the line luckily a line was passing a spinney at the top end of the field i set up there with just the rotary to start and immediatley i had birds coming over towards me i started badly missing my first 6 shots in a row with birds being blown about on the wind i had a word with myself and got my act together and started connecting with them was a steady afternoon shot from 12.30 till 3.30pm i could see the rape field from where i shot and the traffic was constant to it birds passed 100 yards from me all afternoon not breaking the line to the rape if i could of shot that field i would come off it with a 3 figure bag but made the most of it from where i could shoot ended up with 33 picked and 2 i couldn't pick from the water in the spinney behind me
  3. Very well been using them for nearly 4 years now and they are as good as anything
  4. His gun could shoot high or pulled the shot you can't get an accurate answer with one shot you could do it 5 times and get a different pattern with each one I use 32g 4s steel your covered for duck,pheasants, and pigeon only have to buy one lot of cartridges Instead of buying 2 or 3 different shot sizes and loads for different quarry Until its banned then you have to switch
  5. We sometimes get them in thousands on any old stubble in winter but after a few shots they go off to who knows where and don't come back Spain and Portugal I reckon
  6. Nice day and that hide blended in well
  7. Hit the nail on the head, that is exactly what has happened shooting groups on Facebook have taken over
  8. That's why I don't bother anymore i could of put a dozen posts and pics on during the summer but with 1 or 2 replies and just general lack of interest,I don't bother anymore used to be buzzing on here years ago with posts of bags its died a death now
  9. I've never seen a decline in pigeon numbers in the last 34 years I have Been shooting them I think they are actually increasing, and you are right about offloading them I have nearly 300 in the freezers that i can't sell or give away for that matter could of shot a lot more last few weeks they are frozen and not wasted I won't shoot anymore until I can
  10. shot 5 in last 15 years with rings on all shot within a 10 mile radius
  11. that particular issuing force are obviously inept and never turned over a pebble let alone a stone
  12. exactly that many times i have had shooting on fields they are not even feeding on by drawing them across with the magnet turned very average days into great days and can be the difference between no shooting at all to at least some shooting
  13. there's no peas grown in any of the areas we shoot, its a field of barley well supposed to be but the weed growth took over it and thats what the birds are after
  14. Went back to the same field we shot last sat not really expecting much shooting after taking 90 birds off it but it was worth a look with the amount of birds in the area I couldn't of been more wrong as last week 3 to 400 on the field and birds fighting in the wind was in the opposite direction so it would be the otherside of the field not a problem slightly shorter walk got set up by 12 .45pm it was a carbon copy of last week first hour and half it was hectic then went to a steady stream of birds coming in my dad had gone clay shooting with a mate and said he would join me later on he left it to late I had over 100 down by the time he got to the hide at 4.30pm so I left him to shoot the last hour whilst I went looking for birds I seen drop in the distance and hit birds that made the trees total was 130 exactly picked 121
  15. There will be something there small weeds and tiny clover leaves that they can see
