  1. I taught both my young one's to shoot and fish, both could out fish me now and the oldest got to be a real gun / shooting enthusiast, they are both in their 40's now and are teaching their sons and daughters the same way. thats how we keep our sports alive, so well done, keep it up
  2. The only thing blue around here is my language ,a) reading this rubbish and b) every time I miss those pesky birds, Oh and there is the cloud of blue smoke rising from my hide as I fry up my bacon and sausages on the old camp stove,
  3. The estate I shoot drilled rape in October/November and had ploughed most of it in by Christmas as the crop had failed, I still do have a lot of rape to cover and some is doing very well and getting a lot of attention from the pigeons, but some areas have gone brown and died right back, not like frost damage but more like sprayed with weedkiller, with not a single plant surviving in the brown patches, at least it is concentrating the birds into much smaller areas but not good for farm profits. At least things should change once we get rid of the EU control / interference and we can get back to doing things our way!!
  4. I have to throw them out when they stink the car out, the missus gives me real grief when she has to hold her nose when we go shopping, not to mention her seat covered in feathers, Someone told me the ultra violet in the white patches fades after death but I dont have any problem getting them to come in to old decoys, its just hitting them thats the problem I freeze down all fresh birds going to the dealers, and just keep back up to a dozen in the fridge for decoys, that way I dont mix up the good from the nasty and the fridge birds are always easy to set up on mounts. needless to say I have a dedicated fridge in the shed for them, which I keep closed at all times, very nasty inside.

  6. Two sessions on a large rape field this week has resulted in 3 birds picked, probably my worst ever results, but not for the lack of pigeons, they just didnt come anywhere near me, The first time out I sat 3 hours under some oaks where the ground was covered in poop and feathers but they had decided to feed at the other end of the field, something I only discovered as I packed away and witnessed around 200 lift off and disappear into some nearby woods, So second visit I dragged my gear all the way down the field to set up by 9.00 AM near to the place I had seen them, after over 4 hours with just 2 birds down and nothing coming to decoys, no matter how many times I changed the pattern ,they just didnt come, I packed away and spent time on a high rise at the top of the field looking for movement, birds were on the ground at two other locations on the same field and in trees but no flight lines moving, I realise now these are going to be hard birds to get under, with no habitual feeding spots or patterns to their movement its so hard to predict where they will be, just pot luck ,hope for the best but above all keep going, I like many others am very restricted at the moment by game shoots, one area in particular has around 200 acres of rape where around 1000 birds are feeding most days I pass, but until Feb 1st I am not allowed on as the gamekeeper has the last say, even though the game shooters are supposed to help keep pigeons moving they just dont want to waste time on them, but still wont let me on. very frustrating, but hey, more for me in February. In the meantime I waste time chasing small flocks around my perms with little or no success.
