OB an extremely well written account of the afternoon. Thanks for the chance to get out with you and letting me have the lions share of the shooting, I did get over excited at times and try some wild shots (wont tell you how many empties I picked up). Well done for carrying all your own gear 😎 a younger man would have struggled 🙄. I did offer but it looked as if you had a well practiced routine in place for getting your gear to where you wanted to be. Next time if it looks like rain, I will think twice about what side of the hide to pick, over and under will be my choice of gun ! It was quite a contrast to our last outing back in the summer on the rape stubble, it was the hottest day of the year 🥵. if it wasn't for Decker we would have struggled picking all the birds.
Incidentally when we got back to OB's he offered me tea, as he opened the door to his house there was the delicious smell of slow cooked pheasant filling the house, it made me feel like inviting myself for dinner 🙃
Thanks again for a perfect afternoon Chris
