  1. Well folks, two of you have taken up the offer - just one gun remains! - of course the Zombie Apocalypse may generate more places!
  2. Well, to stand up for my civil engineering ability... the particular bridge was indeed two telegraph poles, bolted together, with two scaffold planks on top, with cross boards and chicken wire to provide a wide non slip surface - and yes - it had a hand rail... it was however a full telegraph pole long, and about 8ft above the stream level below - and I had a potential new gun who got vertigo and couldn't possibly cross the bridge - I think we had more than 20 bridges (mostly slightly smaller) over the ditches on that farm, half a dozen were longer than a single scaffold board! This was the f
  3. Due to the usual reasons (all fairly innocuous! old age, changes of jobs etc) we have 3 vacancies this year on our small, DIY shoot twixt Beverley and Driffield in EAST Yorkshire. You'll find my adverts this time most years in the past! This is an established mixed bird (mainly pheasant, but partridge and wildfowl also) syndicate at a point where much of the work has been done. We have just started shooting on a new farm (we've moved off one farm due to a new owner, but found another bit of similar land - with significantly less mud!) and do have some setting up to do - but we have the
  4. Hmm, don't know is the honest answer... nominally I have enough names lined up for the currently available places... but things do have a habit of changing once money starts being required from members!
  5. Another year passes, members come and go, so... (i.e. if you search this forum back over the years you will find similar posts from me!) 3 Full or some half guns available for safe guns (ideally with dog) for long established (55th year!) syndicate shooting north west of Pickering (North Yorkshire). 2000 birds down to (mainly) woodland. Shooting Every Wednesday 1st November onwards, Half guns shoot (about) every other week - tweaked a bit to ensure that they get to shoot all the drives. Costs About £850 for half gun (can't remember full gun price - but slightly le
  6. I do like the idea of a man with 'funds in place' - anyway 'Howson' did visit the shoot this last Saturday, along with another who saw his post. Even with their positive comments, and seeming enthusiasm, seems possible we may still have some vacancies this year, we've got the typical number of leavers due to work and family commitments - and a member who is likely to be getting marching orders as he has only made it to one day in entire season
  7. yep - I live in east Yorkshire, the M62 is about 20minutes away Westwards... the shoot is 'a good' 20 minutes the other way - the last ten minutes is single track with passing places - and has caught a few members out on icy mornings!
  8. Due to various reasons (all fairly innocuous! old age, changes of jobs etc) we have a vacancy again on our small, DIY shoot twixt Beverley and Driffield in EAST Yorkshire. This is an established mixed bird (mainly pheasant, but partridge and wildfowl also) syndicate at a point where nearly all the work has been done. We aim for 50+ bird days. We shoot 10 Saturdays as organised days, but membership allows 365 day / year vermin / boundary shooting. location - think 'Driffield'. YO25... Viewing essential, and we would probably prefer to recruit a gun with a dog,
  9. Is Hutton Cranswick too far for you? We're a walk/stand DIY syndicate in that area, shooting Saturdays but with year round access to the land. Don't pay beaters but do feed them with pies and cake after 2nd drive! -and if any gun is missing they are typically called upon to make up numbers if they want to! Oh, and currently we do have syndicate places available!
  10. 2 Full or 4 half guns available for safe guns (with dogs) for long established (shoot captain in his 52nd year in the role!) walk/stand syndicate shooting north west of Pickering (North Yorkshire). Wednesday shoot... 2000 birds down, 14 or so Wednesdays (every Wednesday from about 1st November plus maybe a couple of Saturdays if numbers permit (birds remaining and guns wanting to take part)) generally with an extra 'final' day in the last week. Half guns shoot (about) every other week - tweaked a bit to ensure that they get to shoot all the drives. This is a DIY shoot, members expected to put

  12. Due to an inconsiderate boss, one of our half guns is having to work on all his shooting days this year, and reluctantly resigns... This leaves an opening for a half gun to join our mixed bird (mainly pheasant, but partridge and wildfowl also) syndicate at a point where nearly all the work has been done. 50 bird days. We shoot 12 Saturdays as organised days, but membership allows 365 day / year vermin / boundary shooting. location - think 'Driffield'. YO25...

  14. Sorry - new recruit did get his finger out (eventually) - paid this week! but as above, circumstances may change so bear us in mind!
  15. More details - for vacancies remain - mainly I think for the 'Wednesday' issue ! Wednesday shoot... 2000 birds down, 14 or so Wednesdays (every wednesday from about 1st November plus maybe a couple of saturdays if numbers permit (birds remaining and guns wanting to take part)) generally with an extra 'final' day in the last week.
