  1. I shoot over my German Wirehaired Pointers. This season I’ve shot grouse, pheasant, partridge, ducks, snipe, woodcock, rabbits, foxes and deer over them. He runs in sometimes but I shoot on my own ground and to be honest I don’t care if he does as long as he makes the retrieve. I think a lot of people get HPRs and don’t have the right ground to work them so just use them as a beating dog and that really isn’t what they are bred for.
  2. I've got three of the DT ones. They belong to the club I'm part of but I've used them for some training days for HPR's. They work really well but you obviously need a supply of birds to make it worth while.

    Anyone having an issue viewing the site from their mobiles? I've just tried and it says I'm banned and don't have permission to view the site.
  4. Yes, they will also retrieve cats. I think its more a case of not many people have the ground to hunt them as they should be and trying to make the dog to a job its not really bred for. I agree with your comments about temperament and epilepsy but in recent years things have improved a lot.
  5. I have two but the older one is now retired. I use the younger one for rough shooting, grouse counting and shooting and a bit of tracking and fox control. I shoot over him a lot during the season. I wouldn't have one for beating or picking up as I think there are better choices for that however I know people who do very well with them at this. My younger one is 40kg and solid, very fit and full of energy. They can be very strong willed and you need to be firm with them and get them under control form the start. Don't think you can leave them to it for 12 months and then start training. They are a big dog and need to be under control. Mine have great temperaments with dogs and people. Both would come on the school run and loved getting fussed by all the kids on the way out. In my experience they are a harder hunting dog than the other HPR's except for maybe the Brittney. They are fearless where cover is concerned and love water. Mine has retrieved everything asked of him including foxes and a muntjac. If you are on facebook look at Totally GWP or look at mine on youtube.....Hunter the German Wirehaired Pointer. He's 4 now but the video only goes up to age 2.
  6. I’ve got one. Very good quality and great to deal with.
  7. Scully, Pepper Spray and CS are incapacitants. If it were legal and freely available I have no doubt the instance of it being used in crime would go through the roof. A quick spray would render someone helpless to they could be robbed, burgled, assaulted, raped or worse. I don't think it would be a good idea. Harry
  8. Scully, the sword stick is locked away because it's old and fragile and I have 2 young boys who would love to play with it. Not for any other reason. Harry
  9. I have an antique sword stick. It's locked in a cabinet and never comes out. It's a specified weapon and is more controlled than an offensive weapon. More details can be found here. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/186911/Knives_and_offensive_weapons_information_GDS_FAQ.pdf

    Air ambulance

    As others have already said if they weren't an indipendantly run charity then the government would hit them with cuts in the same way as hospitals and the police. My local air ambulance received a £1,000,000 government handout last year. I believe it was some of the Libor fines being redistributed.
  11. This year I have for the first time seen Goldcrests and Treecreepers in the garden. The treecreepers decided to nest in a crack in the beams by my back door. We get quite a lot in the garden and this is what I've seen so far......wood pigeon, collared doves, blue tits, great tits, long tail tits, house sparrows, dunnocks, wrens, goldfinch, greenfinch, pied wagtails, swallows, robins, siskin, chaffinch, yellowhammer, grey wagtail, starling, song thrush (came in the house), blackbird, jay, magpie, jackdaw, carrion crow, great spotted woodpecker, green woodpecker, red leg partridge, pheasant, moorhen, mallard (nested in a flower pot overnight), little owl, tawny owl, barn owl, kestrel and sparrow hawk. I've seen a lot of other birds in the fields next to the house. Lots of lapwings as i haven't been shooting them!!!
  12. Are all of the people who slagged the police off now going to eat their words?
  13. I do quite a bit of night flying on NVG and see quite a few. I saw 10 or more in as many minutes the other night.
  14. I've got a Rolex Explorer II (216570) in white. I don't have it to impress people or show off. I have it because I really like it and enjoy wearing it. I have an Omega Seamaster Pro that I've hardly worn since getting the Rolex.
  15. My lad will do it. Just pay him in sweets.
