  1. The fact that you can watch it over and over again, knowing what is about to be said and you still laugh, must showcase their comedy genius
  2. Fletcher talking to Mr Mackay about the use of non toxic shot: Mackay- "listen here Fletcher, don't let me catch you using toxic shot on those ducks, you hear?" Fletcher- "I won't" Mackay- " You won't what?" Fletcher- "I won't let you catch me, sir"
  3. Well done for giving someone the opportunity. If you were in Norfolk I'd be taking up the offer and bringing a nice bottle of whisky or something in return. 😜
  4. Traditionally trap guns would be slightly higher showing plenty of rib, sporter's would be lower showing a bit of rib and a perfect 8 if you have a mid and end bead, and skeet guns would be flatter showing little rib if any at all. Like with anything it comes down to personal preference and how you shoot. I much prefer my guns to have two beads, but I know others who take them straight off leaving no beads at all. My browning sporter is my go to gun for game shooting especially when on the peg, originally with a sporter stock and forend but I have also done my own game stock which comes up a bit lower putting both beads dead in line. I have also had good success with browning skeet guns when rough and walked up shooting, or pigeons from the hide, still quite flat shooting. One gun I shot with that did show plenty of rib was a Funken grade 5. I thought it may have been a little too high for me but on one particular drive I was a walking back gun, the keeper told me to hang back as the odd bird comes this way. At the start of the drive he let his (some what unruly) dog off, which ran straight to the end of the cover, spun round, and sent bird after bird straight back over me. They were pretty much all head on and I had 5 or 6 on the bounce for as many carts. Whether it was the slightly higher point of aim on them driven birds or just the fact that I didn't have time to think about the shot that produced success, I don't know.

  9. It surprises me how few people shoot the calibre. Went to get some ammo a month ago and the shop manager said I was the first person to ask in about 2 years! It's a pretty busy shop for guns and ammo too. I have a Krico full stutzen with double set triggers, S&B 6x42, love it.
  10. I shot a Browning A1 wide-rib, 27 1/2" special skeet most of last year on game and pigeons. Game I was using eley VIP 30g 6's with PD wads and was pleased with the setup. So much so I bought another special skeet in B2 form with 28" barrels and midi-rib.
  11. We have had a few reds about over the years but these last two seasons we have had two good coveys of greys. Most shoot days they have been about, on at least one drive. Good point on the pen, wouldn't take much to move it down the cover crop after the adults birds have been released. I would have tried greys but read that getting them to take to your ground and their survival is a totally different ball game to reds.
  12. Does anyone have any experience in releasing ex-laying French partridge? Been offered some for mid July, we start shooting mid-end of October. We have never put down partridge on our pheasant shoot before but the ground has been holding a couple of nice coveys for the last 2/3 years. We want to try putting a few down, built a couple of pens and looking to put some poults down when we get the pheasants around august. I'm thinking of taking the offer of ex-layers first then releasing some poults later on. Any comments?
  13. Thanks for the replies. Yes we are looking to leave them in, wanted something easy to establish on poor ground and not having to do it each year is a bonus. We had chicory as part of a mix one year which was very good, but didn't know we had to strim and fert it after the season. Other shoots around us use artichokes, the cover is very think, 7ft tall and hard to push through until December, hence me thinking of bunging some in. Was thinking of plating them quite close together (maybe 200-300 apart, the same for row spacing) staggered, to try and produce a narrow wall. Thought about using Canary grass or Miscanthus but thought it would be more hassle getting it in and established. (Don't know anything about them regarding planting). Quite right, I do think about that when I'm looking at our covers. We place small square bales around in areas to try and help with this. Something to think about over the next couple of weeks.
