  1. Birds had not been shot at and been feeding on the field for a week prior. Maybe as you say it was time of day as this was in the morning, they decoyed much better in the afternoon using dead birds 😁
  2. I know dead birds work best but I never had any to start with only the decoys until I shot some.
  3. I used emulsion ...would that make any difference?
  4. Has anybody got any experience of painting the white wing bars on their decoys and consequently using them only to find birds wouldn't decoy. I painted mine a few weeks ago and used them yesterday, loads of birds about but nothing would decoy so I brought them in and replaced with dead birds , the birds then decoyed all be it not all of them but ended up with 88. Has anyone had this happen before ? Double post.

  6. Barley not cut yet so shot a small laid patch . Bagged 174 birds ....88 woodies 86 corvids 🤣
  7. Great day , I was shooting laid barley yesterday too. 174 birds shot 88 woodies 86 corvids. Couldn't shoot to my right or would have had more but still a great day.
  8. Got a call from farmer today , corvids and pigeons on the barley. Had a look tonight reccying for Saturday 8pm and there was birds dropping in all over the field. Bit of a headache to shoot as there is a housing estate along the top of the field and no real flat patches as such. Will give it a go and see what happens, this is the same field I got my PB on this time last year 229 so I hope it's as good 🤞
  9. Looks like Pine Marten to me 👍
  10. God help us if they have to face Brazil Argentina , Belgium , Holland or Spain
  11. Typical England...no winning mentality. Southgate's political statement in the penalties backfired....sick of hearing how well they did . They had an easy route to the final and still blew it .....noone remembers a loser...

    ENG v DEN

    Glad they reached the final but an own goal and a penalty that wasnt isn't really worth shouting about. Italy will spank them on Sunday I think but hopefully I am wrong.
  13. Are you sure she was 24 seems inaccurate, Google states oldest ever was 19 ????
