  1. I used the old eley Olympics 28g -7.5 for pigeons for years. Recently I have used both Trust & Jocker 28g -7.5 which I really rate through 1/2 & 3/4 choke combination. I have on occasion taken some 30g- 5 game loads decoying and to be honest I prefer the lighter loads over decoys 25- 35 yards out. Hitman
  2. Hi m8

    I am guessing that you are not far from me in Berwick.

    Its pretty hard going around here at the moment, and I am sure they are still eating beechmast and only a few on the rape.

    I shot a dozen last weekend but other then that it’s been ones & twos.


    1. Just watched it after reading this thread. Me And Mrs H haven’t laughed so much in years. Can’t believe I hadn’t come across this film earlier ( no pun intended).
    2. A true Hollywood legend in every sense. With the recent passing of Terry Jones it’s fair to say - I am Spartacus and so is my wife. Hitman
    3. Hi Folks So far this winter in my patch, I am averaging about 3 pigeons per outing compared to 25 last year. I think the beechmast crop is still keeping many birds going, as the OSR in my patch is almost untouched. Whilst out today I was surprised how much heat was in the sun, and unless we have a big freeze farmers are going to be preparing the ground for early drilling ( normally mid March in my patch). As frustrating as it is at the moment, I have had some of my best bags on spring drilling’s after a disappointing winter. I have noticed that one of my permissions has direct drilled OSR into stubble which looks really patchy in places and could be perfect for decoying late April when all other OSR is tall. Better days to come chaps just keep picking away. Hitman
    4. I like Frankie Boyle's take on this by saying “ when we have a dinner party we always have an option for veggies- go home ! or words to that effect.
    5. The current owners are possibly getting some unwanted attention from visitors with the tv program fuelling renewed interesting in the story.
    6. No not seen any of the Walter presents, but someone at work often raves about it, so I will give it a try. The actress who plays the part of Keeler is rather more attractive than then Keeler was- in my opinion.

      Tv programs

      Hi Folks There is some decent stuff on tv at the moment. I am watching White House farm, and The trial of Christine Keeler, both of which are really good and well acted with a good cast. The Christine Keeler story was well before my time but I remember the White House farm murders and remember the news coverage of it at the time. Worth a look chaps . Hitman.
    8. Jocker 7.5 28g are a good decoying load as are Trust 7.5 28g. I recently bought 1000 trust 30g no6 which I suppose will be a UK 5.5 for pheasants and I am really pleased with them. I paid £215 for 1000 . Hitman
    9. He made a career from feeding off peoples loss, grief and hope which I find distasteful. He was revealed as a hoaxer which resulted in him losing tv work and having to appear on celebrity BB.
    10. If labour are to rebuild then I would suggest Lisa Nandy as leader. when she has appeared on question time she has always spoken well and directly. Thornberry, Abbott,Gardiner and co all need to retire from politics now. Hitman
