  1. That's because they supply the trade. Ballistic Products being one and they will ship at a strong price 👍
  2. Seems like you picked up where you left off. Good shooting and looking forward to your regular reports as before 👍
  3. Unfortunately can't help with temperature or times as my late mother and grandmother done the cooking. Curried goose is excellent as well 👍 admit it's more satisfying when they fold and straight down but you got your first Pink that's what counts hopefully the first of many. Truthfully only last week i had the same experience as yourself thought I'd messed up a very very easy right an left chance but my dogs new better and picked both Pinks behind me while i cursed myself for missing along with the dog's for running in. Just shows inspite of my many years of shooting Geese and experience i messed up on two accounts but disappointment soon turned to joy
  4. First congratulations on your first Pink 👏 Wild goose is totally different to domestic Goose and definitely not full of fat . Bacon over breast fill cavity with stuffing of choice ( chestnut is my favourite ) cook breast down low and slow as you would a Turkey . Cooked right a superb meal unfortunately can be tuff if not cooked right. Definitely don't taste of Fish or Mud either. Enjoy hope to hear you bag a few more. 👍
  5. Excellent result 👍 we all need a little help at times hopefully now you have broke the blanks more successful flights will come your way for the rest of the season
  6. Cracking picture and good result mate well to you both. Hope my change of fortune hold's took a good friend this morning who got two Pinks myself a Right & Left fingers crossed for Conor in the morning as he was working today
  7. Thank you. He certainly has got the Bug and with his first pup he experiencing loads of first fingers crossed plenty more to come 👍
  8. Thank you Marsh Gun . John Conor's pup has already retrieved probably 25+ Greylag to had does go until Conor asks him. Saturday evening i shot a Drake tufted duck which he retrieved faultless then a Greylag which had fell down a steep bank and rolled into a pit the young pup again surprised us as he brought it from the water up the bank to Conor's hand he also found and retrieved 3 other Grey's in the dark and to get the results he did this morning was the iceing on the cake. Thank you Mark 👍
  9. Rather than derail Flippermaj thread further I'll start this. So as i mentioned in his the foreshore Pinks are being really sneaky. So another very early start following a long drive Conor ( grandson ) his first pup ( fox red lab 7months old ) my two lab's made our way out onto a notorious hard marsh for geese but steeped in history. Edging back on the rising tide my heart sank as the geese was well to our right trying to still feel positive i heard a single Pink call twice heading our way trying to calm Conor down he shouted here here looking up somehow 20-30 Pinks had sneaked right onto us praying hoping ( Conor had never even fired a shot at a goose on this marsh ) . Conor's first sent one slanting down but his second killed it due to this i nearly missed my chance but thankfully my shot found the mark. The joy excitement and relief is hard to explain as Conor went into excitement melt down as he watched his pup pick his first foreshore pink from this marsh. Three other local fowler's who saw the geese shot also congratulated Conor and his pup for me yet another proud moment logged into the memory bank. Sorry but club rules etc don't allow pictures or destination 👍
  10. Hi Mark added a few to the total this evening Pinks are slow building up this season so far and certainly giving me the run around along with some very bad luck only this morning unslipping the gun quickly trying to load it i dropped both cartridges as 10-12 Pinks swept over my head 15 yards high 😤 very early start again tomorrow seeking revenge 🤞 hope you are having better luck
  11. My 20ga has done a lot on the Foreshore for a few years including getting covered in mud no problems whatsoever 👍
  12. No problems Steve. Yes i admit i was surprised at the price good luck and hope they suit your needs the Mandel chokes i have are very good 👍
  13. Mandel do Lamber chokes for a 20ga i checked a few minutes ago 👍
  14. Exactly 👍 add Teal in fact any legal species of Wildfowl. I have or never will be a driven game shot being a Wildfowler through and through but i was on a driven Pheasant where most was using what I'd describe a mini mag lead goose cartridges myself Gamebore Super Steel 32grm 4 shot let's just say i more than held my own
  15. Well unless my eyes deceived me Both powder and shot was weighed . Personally take my hat of to you well done for your skill in making the tools. I've got a mec 10ga loader i use to load 20ga 12ga and 10ga takes seconds to change to a different GA. 😊 👍
