  1. Got my monthly update email from William Powell Sporting yesterday and they are still showing shooting opportunities all over England. Most are out of date and clearly they haven't updated their Opportunities listing to take account of Lockdown etc. I suspect that's the case with a number of Sporting Agencies, after all I suppose they can at least still impress readers with what they DID have on offer !!
  2. To me, as a non-farmer, that's an unusual way to drill into bean stubble. Round my area they tend to wait until the beans have softened and put out shoots/volunteer crop, then disc and drill. I would think much of those wheat seeds in your piccy will be lost as the beans re-grow and smother them ?? Either way, should be a good feed meantime
  3. Adblock Plus - free and removes all adds on PC or phone. Simples Its currently blocking 5 ads on this page on my PC
  4. The one in the middle is different to the others 😉
  5. 70 miles out - birds unlikely. Maybe inter-ac impact during air-to-air combat that went wrong. Anyway, God RIP someone doing a very skilled task that clearly went wrong.
  6. Well, all worked out on Monday 141 to me and some more to a friend. Lots of birds, but think they were coming some distance to our fields. Not a lot of pigeon-favourite food around at the mo
  7. Well done Motty - great post and some good shooting there !! Hopefully get a few myself in the next few days - same flat lands as you frequent Nick
  8. Pigeon 32 are 2.6mm = English #6. Printed on the25- box and slab box 😉 Been using them for 5 years plus. Great on pigeon, partridges and "average" pheasants !!
  9. Well done muncher 👍 I was out on Wednesday afternoon on peas. A much "smaller" do than yours, but nice to be out again. Had all my dead birds out as decoys and was pleased to see none were fly-blown when I picked-up - and I then realised I had not seen anything buzzing about all afternoon . I guess this may be due to the very dry air / ground at the mo, but I have certainly had to sack pigeons during the day at this time of year previously.
  10. Probably an idiot question, as I have never used a Shotcam, but is the red point of impact dot visible to you the shooter, as a point of aim ??
  11. Enjoyed both your videos and congratulate you on your camera work !! Just out of interest, I used Pigeon Power a couple of years back, and used to get some quite good kills for a light load. You may be interested to know that the cartridge is loaded with Eu 6 shot, which is an equivalent UK 5, so fewer pellets, but more impact. Patterns get a bit thin further out though !! Here is the text of an email from Lyalvale from when I enquired about the shot size: "Thank you for the email, in answer to your question yes we utilise a continental shot size in this cartridge which gives
