  1. I remember reds in Duxbury woods, Chorley, about 30 years ago. That was before the golf course and the public access was much less than now. I do my bit with the s410 and would love to see reds back.
  2. I've got two and had them for several years. Only replaced one of the motors, simple job, about £6 from ebay. I would recommend them, don't see the point of paying double the price. I bought an adjustable timer, again off the bay, because i thought the supplied timer went on too long.
  3. Thanks for the replies guys.I was wondering if the pigeon would come to the newly drilled crop, probably didn't word the question properly.
  4. Some advice please from the Pigeon Massive. I have recently got a new permission which has mainly barley and beans, which have come through this week, and the pigeon have sought alternative food. The farmer was drilling some game crop strips yesterday and as this is my only permission with game crop, I'm wondering if the pigeon will come to it? I'm expecting the answer to be "watch it", but in the present situation that's difficult. Hopefully I may get on it after the game season, but is it worth keeping in mind for the future? Cheers, and stay safe. HIDENSEEK
  5. After seeing a mates barrels flashing every time he mounted the gun across the field, I bought a stretchy camo one off the bay. It fitted the whole gun and I just cut off enough to fit the barrels, and used the other piece to protect the stock from scratches. I can't find the same one now, tried neoprene but nowhere near as good. I only use it when it's bright sun but I got definately less "flare offs".
  6. Nice write up. Don't measure the day by the size of the bag, or the number of shots, but by the pleasure you get out of it. 😊
  7. Well done! You'll have to sneak out again, bit of fresh air and a few pigeons are a good tonic. Might need a rest and a whisky later?
  8. Well done! Nice write up. Can't complain about a lack of wind this roosting season can we?!
  9. Very good OB, nice to hear someones getting a good day out, bag doesn't matter. I'm shooting more pigeons with the air rifle at the moment! 😩
  10. I resisted using a magnet at all until 3 years ago,and now wouldn't like to be without it in the vehicle. HOWEVER, I frequently have to switch it off or take it in altogether if they flare off. I still use a flapper & random timer, sometimes on a 3ft steel rod, and sometimes find this spooks the birds if it flaps just as they are over the deeks.I think a lot of this is down to shooting pressure and everywhere in my part of the world has plenty of that! All of my "toys" are taped up as I'm sure flash on a bright day doesn't help.I'm hoping this may help newcomers to our sport, old hands wo
