    Waders

    Evening all, for the past few days I've been looking for a cheap pair of waders, does anyone wear waist waders nowadays? I ask because most of my fowling requires a nice walk and I cook in my neoprene chesties, saw some pvc waders from decathlon but wasn't sure if you end up just as hot as neoprene?

    KENT AND CHICHESTER WILDFOWLERS BUY NEW LAND

    Kent wildfowlers must own/lease most of the marshes round your way by now.

    Ear protection for fowling

    Howard leight electronic ear defenders are a good bet.
  5. I'm enjoying this, yes steel wads are generally thicker, however I'm sure there are far more plastic wads from your game and clay shells dotted over the countryside compared to steel wads.
  6. Why are you moaning about plastic wads in wetlands yet happy to use them on pheasant days?
  7. Could of sworn only cigars were smoked on these posh shoots....
  8. How do you know Dave doesn't have his own Holland & Holland style shooting simulater?

    Spent shells and plaswads

    I've been quite eco friendly so far this season, 3 trips to the marshes and not had a shot.

    Kent Wildfowler’s Press Release

    I certainly can't fault your enthusiasm and commitment, I'm curious as to whether you struggle with the right balance between number of members and land available to shoot?

    It was nice to meet you as well mate, unfortunately I didn't have a shot and experienced some pretty harsh weather. All cartridges now sold, thanks for the interest.

    Thanks for explaining, I admit to only moaning to my FLO about the fee, I await to see if a court case happens any time soon but I'm doubtful.
  18. Evening all, just thought I'd share my recent experiences with lincs police. My certificates were due for renewal towards the end of october, after discovering I could apply online I believed it would be relatively straight forward however....please make sure you have a patient spouse/partner and make sure any young children are not around to hear the forthcoming bad language. It's fair to say the system they use is a 'work in progress' and in 'early stages', after spending what seemed like an eternity filling out the application I hit the 'submit' button only for my entire application to disappear and I was logged out of the system. I genuinely believe now that we are not being spied on as if I was then my certificates would not of been renewed based on my reaction , luckily second time round was all good only to be told that it had to be printed off for signing . A few weeks went by, medical report requested, FLO visited (nice guy with common sense), voiced my opinion of the new system and said they really need to sort some form of digital signature to make it smoother, was told things haven't been easy with it but they're getting there which hopefully improves in time for others come renewal time. FLO said certificates should be done before current renewal date due to being a quieter period for them, medical report paid then a couple of weeks later 2 letters in the post extending my current certificates by 2 months as new ones weren't likely to be ready, 4 days after those letters arrived my new certificates were here. All in all a few system glitches to sort out but renewal time was less than 8 weeks so not as bad as I was expecting.

    Unfortunately Scully a lot of people are in the same boat as me, members of BASC through wildfowling clubs, unless the clubs go elsewhere there's not a great deal we can do. Out of interest I'll ring BASC tomorrow to see what the current update is if there is one, too late for me as I've paid but I can see what they're doing for people who have made a stand.

    In other words I take it you're saying you'll pay? If so what will your protest be? Interesting to hear Notts are on the same bandwagon, I like how BASC say they will protest it, did they elaborate how they intend to do this? If it's the same way as Lincs then most people will be removing dust from their guns before they get chance to use them again, I don't mean to have a dig at BASC, I just believe they mean well at times but simply don't carry enough clout.

    I understand your point completely, problem is lincs police have made clear their intentions and all we got told was refuse to pay. This is all well and good but then what? I would be interested to hear of anyone who has made a stand and not paid to see how it panned out for them. I can see it being rolled out more widely after talking to my FLO, he said it's already showed up a few people's dishonesty.

    No conditions to disclose, call it begrudgingly accepted if you will, no I wasn't happy about it but like Big Mat and CharlieT have said, no report no certificates, I even got an email reminder stating unless I sorted the report then my application would be withdrawn. I believe that both options seem to be correct, however if you don't pay I reckon you will not be shooting for a very long time. I'd love to stand up with my principles intact however I enjoy going shooting and I ain't no Martin Luther King.

    You most likely have the same FLO as me pal, I believe he certainly makes things move a lot quicker at HQ.
