  1. I visited the university today to hear a lecture on the farmyard and agri pests. and was informed that the wood pigeon can distinguish blue colour and would avoid that at all costs..is that possiblytrue if so then dont wear or show any blue.
  2. cabinet re shuffle theresa villiers has been axed as min for defra the new one is. George. Eustice who is a yorkshire mp and his family have a very large Devon fruit farm they have schools open days rare breed pigs ..and best of all..he shoots as well...so good news there then..Fruit...pigeon...pest control. Guns do shoot Over fruit field of theirs?????? Nice choice of minister Boris...
  3. Well done indeed but the delay is perhaps dur to considering other issues..could be just awaiting further objections in the pipeline
  4. would be very interested for 2 gun places kindly pm me details. We already shoot in east yorkshire
  5. What will happen after the 29th Feb ? The sec state for environment Theresa Villiers has to make decision based on the input from many areas of the conservation...shooting..wildlife..and others. Basc has wanted additions to include the the collard dove..and the parakeet several Avian groups have insisted their input be heard..Natural England made temp make shift licenses they introduced GL 34 35 36.to make do till Feb 29th which is nearly here..and is the time when we as pigeon shooters are most active on sown crops game keepers farmers and us landowners need clear regulations so no doubt exists and no law broken..Theresa Villiers must make a solid decision and if this annoys anyone then so be it. Let us all be in no doubt that as shooters we are targets for antis and must fight our corner. We now have a government that will listen in a way to suit all. Lets hope they will.
  6. Try a drone bought from Argos if you are miles away from aircraft runways. BUT EVEN that is now we have been told BANNED (we stick a woody onto one as decoy ) banned for us here as we have a private light aircraft airfield nearby.What is the world coming to. I Hope your peas are safe from the bombardment and lets hope the talks next wee result in a solution with Grove..
  7. 🤐When I started this thread I thought I would get some various answers to my question and so I have looking at them. Shows that even the down trodden proud man can join in and shoot. Well as you all can see.. WE ARE NOT the idle upper class super rich. TOFFS who have money enough to stand in the wind and rain on a shooting peg and happily bang away.. OR spend hours sat after woodpigeon crow etc in out luxury made ready hides with a hot toddy and cucumber sandwich at hand then when had enough its... into the Range Rover and home to our hot tubs in our large homes. NO.... WE ARE ORDINARY men (and ladies) who just do the farming community a service and help to save crops. Working class/middle class Ordinary men (and ladies) YES WE ARE... By gum that's a bloody relief..😂🤐
  8. Step up the house of lords.. The Royal family..What a no hoper this is ..Ban Pheasant shooting just because really you cant tell the difference on a drive between WILD and REARED? Do they think that a wild pheasant does not use the feed hopper water drinkers ? can Mr Packham distinguish between them ? And what about the income to the industry. . Perhaps we should all just go clay pigeon shooting set / apply for shooting grounds /sights near RSPB reserves and spoil their day out.. stop contributing our Gov subsidy to them.. Take away their charitable status as well well we are not like that we want to be legal open fair in what we do.WE MUST ALL BE ABOVE BOARD and take care to be RIGHT.. .Noticed also on license application is there a SSSI.. or Wildlife reserve RSPB near to where you intend to use the license. .NOTE RSPB mention here
  9. hessian is better I think ..It can be used in the hedgerow when the tall grass has changed golden..on sandy beach for wildfowl...AND is much cheaper as dealers know we need camo..so increase price..Ive known some men use corn sacking and dyed bed blanket for cover..
  10. I use hessian instead of camo when the stubble is about..and when the wheat and barley is golden..hessian as a cover is great anyone else use it.
  11. its on the guns on pegs.com website..go to that and click on articles and you will see it ..ok the link is heavily used..try at a less peek time also on the basc website are the letters from mps to grove and natural englane..
  12. Just being told about the latest update to this matter can be found on the guns on pegs website and is about meeting by several MPs with Mr Gove last week.It can be found on this link www.gunsonpegs.com\articles/shooting-talk/natural-england Lets hope our MPs work for a change and put things right.. SUPPORT THEM PLEASE..
  13. The general public think that all shooting people are countryside rich and privalidged .are we?? What though are we..what do we all do Im retired engineer now woodland and landowner. What are you ??
  14. Yes best of luck our order was for 1500 All are now well on their way.900 cock 600 hen..which will join our present stock.. The work put in now will indeed show in october when the guns come out..get out and put time in ..it will reap reward later.
