  1. Thats part of the problem at my age thats not so good, so spend time in the shed to keep occupied ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿคจ
  2. Well done, makes me remember the days teaching my son, those memories are cherished and hopefully will not to be forgotten as we age. ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Not had any problem with mine so far, on/off n speed control work ok withing usual range 35 mtr approx max, didnt purchase birds I use hypas or real, didnt purchase battery either .
  4. Movement in a pattern can help at times to draw pigeon from a distance and I personally use a rotary or flapper or two if I feel they are needed to do so ( I'm an ole f**t so the less gear I need to carry the better) But on saying that I always start with a static pattern to see the pigeons reaction, if they seem un-committed or I cannot get close enough to their flight line then I will add movement , if they are happy to come into static decs then I leave it as is. Taking time watching the pigeon before picking your spot and setting up is important. Use some spring sticks on your decoys to add a little movement by wind to your pattern, a cheap and easy way to get some motion in your decoys . If your handy with fiddling and fettling in a shed there is much you can do to make your decoys move on the cheap.
  5. Know one of the BASC local tutors and if they are all as experienced and knowledgeable as him well worth using the BASC course.
  6. Finally got round to finishing the drill rotary mentioned on PW a while back, arms shown are telescopic fishing whips pivoted together for use with hypaflaps when on a longish walk, it can be seen on the motor to arm connection regular heavy arm fittings for use with real birds. It has to be used with a speed controller ( cheap enough to buy on line) when running on 12 volt but makes use of the old drill motor and odds and bods laying around in the shed. I didnt use the drill trigger for this rotary but did adapt one years back on another I made. Next in line ultra lightweight rotary for hypaflaps , knocked the last ones motor out. All to keep occupied in the shed with important jobs away from her indoors :)` Forgot to add ground spike and leg is an old fishing net handle with a homemade glassfibre tri ground spike. Arm diameter turn circle 2.4 mtrs .
  7. Tried the barrow route before and found the single wheel a little easier especially in the tram lines and tight field margins than a double wheel rig. Due to unwelcome campers most of my permissions have blocked field entrances so I got rid of the juicy landy and narrowed my kit down to rucksacks for walking , one semi light weight with thinish ex tent fibre break down poles modified and a light net n clips , small ally seat, 12 silo decoys, 60 cartridges (more in the car) homemade light bouncer, flapper, light weight homemade rotary for silo's, other small odds and bods as felt needed on the day. The other rucksack and fuller kit when it is possible to drive the target field when shooting 2 up. Still not mega lightweight for a 70 year old cranky bod guy but I can manage without an oxygen bottle . ( ok most days ) ๐Ÿ˜‰ P.S If anyone local wants the ex working golf trolly motor assembly on the frame as further up this article its gonna hit the skip soon so best move quickly.
  8. Invaluable if you use a dog for picking up, dogs do tend to get wrapped up in long wire leads and bring the electrics back to the hide. ๐Ÿ™„
  9. I found with the one I had,leveling for comfort a problem especially near some ditch edges , I made a couple of broad timber wedges up to 25 mm height and covered the top of them in a non slip matting on the bucket side, saves weight over carrying a spade or kicking two happeth out of hard ground to get the bucket level.
  10. I have used a couple of different remotes from china for several flappers and projects, all have worked even if somewhat short of wiring instructions , but notice now on one of the types they include wiring instructions on the bay. No all are within UK frequencies so are not really legal for UK use. range can be around 30/40 yards depending on mount height. Delivery usually reasonable within 10 days Hope that helps
  11. Not really from the field but my balcony. Shes been sitting on the nest for a week now, guessing the same dove that made the nest last year on my satellite bracket and raised two young'uns. What does she know that we dont ?
  12. Nice job I will keep a look out for it as I drive around my Essex area .............. OH! I wont be able to see it ! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜„
  13. Anything covering your ears if your wearing standard aids can be a little uncomfortable or make a rustling noise as you move , I cant comment on other types. Standard over the ear types in hot weather like last year can also make for Betty Swollocks syndrome of the ears.
  14. I couldnt hear a thing previously said ! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Had my NHS aids for 9 years ( Guess too much noisey guitar playing and gunshots without ear protection), free and free for life batteries and maintenance, they always remain the property of the NHS and should be handed back when no longer needed .
