  1. Very thoughtful and well considered artical as far as I can see.
  2. Any ideas what these are? I'm presuming the purple ones are amythst deceives or lillac fibercaps? Hopefully the former. Will probably write the smaller, slightly coloured one off, and no idea about the large ones??? - But I know white, white gilled mushrooms are usually to be keenly avoided. All of them are being spore printed at the moment, and wont be eaten unless they can be positively identified in at least a couple of books - but any pointers would be greatly welcomed.
  3. Yep, sounds fine as long as your not shooting super high pheasants. Snap
  4. Thanks for all the replies. So, it turns out that a chap who owned a smallholding a number of (fairly large) feilds away, owned a handful of sheep, which following his death about a week ago, broke free. Seems that's the rather sobering end to my hopes for some deer. Thanks again for the replies
  5. Could anyone point the in the right direction? They appeared in a fairly remote feild, the only entrance to which, that isn't a significant distance away is a very small wooden bridge, with a bar / poke to stop livestock crossing it. The area is on the edge of a small / medium sized rural(ish) town in south Cheshire. They are pretty close (about 50 yrds)away from a snall brook and valley that are the only overgrown fringes of otherwise fairly uniform arable feilds, bar obligatory hedgerows. I have my suspicions, but it would helpful to positively ID them. Many thanks,
  6. Admittedly, I dont have baler twine around my waist, but when crossing the road, and walking along it from one entrance to another on my friends and familys land, I dont bother to sleeve my gun. I can also remember shooting down in Somerset about five or six years ago when the shoot captain almost demanded that the guns didn't sleeve their guns as we walked from the meeting point to the first drive along a country lane. This said, I wont walk down a main street with my gun under my arm, but - and this isn't my area of law, so I am more than happy for someone to correct me - my understanding is that the person who owns the land on one side of the road, owns the land underneath it, and therefore (in most cases) the sporting rights, up untill the middle of the road.
  7. Thanks for the replies - I'll keep on feeding it and provide an update when I start to see some results.
  8. Hi All, I've started feeding up a shallow pool at the begining of this week, after an aborted attempt at a far deeper, and unsuitable pool over the last few weeks. I've seen ducks in the same feild / marsh / bog before - but years ago, so I assume it's good for the job, especially as an old freind use to feed it up and get good bags from it. Regardless, it holds a plenty of Snipe and Jack Snipe, the former if which provide me with good sport. I've set up an auto feeder, to spin 20 seconds worth of grain just after the sun go's down, and there are a couple of piles of grain lying about, after the cattle tried to get through the barrier fence we created to keep them out, and knocked it out through the hole in the base of the feeder - although they cant actually get into the feeder, or at the grain itself. So far, the trail cam I have set up has recorded plenty of images of grass and the duck feeder swaying in the wind, and also plenty of pictures of cows - but no ducks. So my question is - and I know I'm being impatient - when, as a rule of thumb, do I get the ducks?
  9. On my familys land, one of the freinds we let rough shoot said this to me around last Christmas. I told him that I wasn't aware of any particular law that said this - and I'm still not. I work for a large, and half decent law firm - and I admit, that after my primary search not bearing any fruit, I haven't given it much thought - but I'd be interested in knowing where this notion/rumour/et cetera, originated.
  10. I'm having a clean though at the moment, and these are looking for a new home. There is some wear and tear, and some mildew - they look like they have been in a garage at some point - but the bindings are sound and they are intresting and informative books. Idealy, if anyone would like them, they could pick them, or failing that, I'd be happy to post them.
  11. It seems to be ok. There's certainly nothing thats obviously loose. Actualy, having had another look - what seems to be going on is that the collar end of the extractor is sometimes getting stuck at the chamber end of the two spring loaded fins that the cartridge travels over before it ends up in the chamber. When it jams, if i firk about with extractor collar, it snaps back into place and works correctly.
  12. On closer inspection, it does seem to be something to do with the extractor. When the bolt jams, it always when its being pulled back, and it will do it without a cartridge in. I'm presuming the rear of the extractor is sometimes getting caught under the lip of the grove that it sits in.
  13. Thanks for the replys on this. I went lamping this weekend with it and its a great little gun. However, I notice that the bolt sometime seems to stick - is this to be expected?or something thats easily fixed? Many thanks
