  1. One of my spaniels ate a pack of 3 mars bars including the wrappers. I called the vet and said as its milk chocolate it won't harm her and it didn't. I often give my spaniels half a mars bar (not usually the wrapper though!) at lunchtime when we are shooting. The sugar perks them up for the afternoon
  2. You should always have one more than you need.... just in case
  3. I think the important thing is to be able to identify between toys and real guns. I too grew up playing cowboys and indians with cap guns but as soon as I had my air rifle or my fathers shotgun in my hands I knew not to point ithem at anyone.
  4. I think Wild Justice always knew they would eventually lose this one but their ultimate goal is to stop shooting so I expect that they will try and stop the General Licences being used by gamekeepers. Their argument will probably be that it is unlawful to use the General licences to protect non native birds by killing native birds that are protected under the current wildlife act. While we maynot like Packham and co. he is not the fool that alot of people think he is and he has it in for shooting so we need to be aware. Hopefully BASC/CA etc. will now step up to the plate and use our membership fees to sort this out quickly. I remember before the hunting ban in 2005 alot of people saying "they will never ban hunting" and when it was they said "the act will be repealed" and it hasn't and isn't likely to be, certainly not in the near future. I think the longer it goes unrepealed the less likely it is to evr be repealed. Hopefully I am wrong
  5. Chessgrove and they have automatic/solo traps
  6. Theses are excellent made machines and also useful for trading steadiness of Gundogs by attaching a dummy

  8. Thanks Vince what is the name of the gun shop? i am new to the area
  9. Anyone on here have any local knowledge of Chippenham? I work there, on Bumpers Farm I am looking for some rough grass where I can train my young spaniel to hunt during my lunch hour. There are plenty of parks and fields with short grass but I specifically want some cover. Thanks
  10. 2nd Chris Upton. I have watched loads of his stuff on youtube DVD - I would recommend David Lisett Books - Joe Irving's book The Learning Chain That said a good local trainer who does one2one and group lessons would prove invaluable Best of all use all the above
  11. I would say claim if you need the money and if you don't I wouldn't bother. My experience with PetPlan is that if the incident doesn't cause an ongoing health issue your premium will not go up. We had a £6,000 vet bill (infection caused by grass seed) earlier this year and last week a £500 bill for the same dog due to barbed wire and we claimed for both. The claim process is easy and quick and most vets will check it and submit it on your behalf. Our policy was due for renewal in March and didn't increase by more than 3% which I would expect anyway due to inflation. I submitted the "barbed wire" claim last week and got a text on Friday confirming it had been accepted and the money will be paid direct into my account within 5 days
  12. Maybe not too far as I have family in Gloucestershire so could combine both
  13. Thanks for the replies. bigbird I would appreciate a rundown on a novice test please. Are there any videos online worth watching? I want to see what the cover is like and the distance of the marked, blind and water retrieves
