  1. I received a call from a farmer friend last week, as he had pigeons hammering his peas and the gas guns were not moving them. I set out my woodpigeon models some with wings outstretched, as recommended in GL31 and fired some shots to put pigeons off the field. The pigeons could not be deterred so I had to shoot these that came to destroy the crop of peas. Hitman
  2. It was luck more than anything, as I often was the second lowest scorer in the H2H league but managed to be paired with the lowest scorer that week. my 6th position in the main league confirms this. All good fun though, and hopefully we get a stronger league next season.
  3. Well done everyone who took part in another competitive season. I was fortunate enough to top the head 2 head league and 6th in the league. Roll in next season. Hitman
  4. Thank you for the information. JJsDad, that’s great and very well explained. I will indeed inform my farmer friends your advice about non lethal methods first. Hitman
  5. Hi Folks like everyone else I have been trying to keep up with developments regards shooting pigeons in England. just in case I have missed anything, are we still waiting for a revised version on the individual permits to be released? Can we now shoot pigeons as long as we can show that non lethal methods have been tried. Any information would be very welcome. Hitman

    Coffee

    Firstly I am a tea drinker, at least 8 cups of Yorkshire tea everyday, however Mrs H is a coffee lover and get stuff called everyday filter coffee from home bargains. its really nice and easy to drink apparently.
  7. Trap 100 was my go to cartridge for decoying pigeons back in the day, gutted when they stopped making them.
  8. I did ok, 1st & 3rd but very small bets . I won £14 so that’s me for another year. Hitman
  9. Yes it depends which disc is bulging and which nerve is trapped in the back as to which part of your body goes numb. i was offered surgery however no guarantee that it would give me the feeling back in my foot so I didn’t bother. like most things we just learn to live with it.
  10. I no feeling in along the outside of my right foot including the little toe as a result of a bulging disc in my lower back pushing on a nerve. i walk with a slight limp and cannot stand on my right leg alone. on the up side , on the occasions that I have stubbed this toe I always think oh that would have hurt.

  11. Locally I have noticed pigeons starting the day on one field then moving on to another in the afternoon. Earlier this week I was set up at 9am ( conditions were good bright and sunny) by 1pm I was packed up and heading home with 43 pigeons, most of which I shot in the first 2 hours. If had gone out at 1pm would I have shot more? Possibly as it all depends on the weather conditions and how they react to being disturbed. local reconnaissance is so important, as you need to know what pigeons on your patch are doing.
  12. Also agree. you know through experience when pigeons have somewhere else in mind, and it doesn’t matter how many decoys or magnets you have out.

    Das Boot

    I have watched all episodes of the new Das boot on sky and really enjoying it, subtitles and all. it has two story lines- one on the u-boat and one on land with the French resistance and both kept me hooked. The program portrays the German sailors and German soldiers as a bunch of murderous thugs who have no regard for the French civilians men or women. I know that recent generations of Germans are appalled and ashamed of their history and perhaps this new Das boot is letting everyone know how they feel about the war. just my opinion. Hitman.
  14. I have shot a lot of George’s 32g No 5 at pheasants and really like them. Back when George was was just starting he made a 30g No 5.5 pigeon load in a dark blue case which I thought was possibly the best cartridge I have ever used on both pigeon and pheasant. Hitman.

    Corbyn

    Mrs May is anything but thick , and she was taking the pee out of Jezza who is an easy target. If Jezza had Mrs May’s work ethic and intelligence he would be in a better position to topple a very fragile PM rather than choosing to sit on his hands and tell lies.
