  1. The picture is an advert for my boots. They are exactly the same. At the moment they are in a boot carrier and need to be washed but will look good as new once done. As mentioned only bought them last year and had about six outings in them during the winter and wore them for a walk in the woods over Christmas I wouldn’t sell them as per the pic unless I thought they would be worth £30 Hope that helps
  2. Be a shame just to put these in the garage and never use them again, so will sell for £30 posted if anyone is interested. They were £80 new Grubs Snowline 8.5 boots. Size 8 £30 posted only had them for 1 season. Lovely and warm and comfortable. Replaced with a pair of Le Chameau at Christmas These Grub's Snowline field boots are the ultimate footwear in both comfort and grip. A high performance, field boot with 8.5 technology to maintain a comfortable temperature in colder weather. Constructed from Grub's unique Insu-Foam technology that has a polyester fleece lining combined with Highloft liner that allows air to circulate and trap heat. The nitrocell foot-bed adds further insulation to give the wearer superior thermal protection in the great outdoors.

  4. Self employed, sponging low life....how ****ing dare you!! I have been working non stop since leaving school at 16 in 1978. Left school with no qualifications. Never been out of work. First 25 years as a permie in 3 organisations and the last 14 working for myself as a contractor. Never missed a tax payment from 1978 until now No holiday pay, no sickness pay, no pension, no healthcare...you don’t work you don’t get paid wind your neck in
  5. Two recommendations. Salrowbra up near Pickering in North Yorkshire http://www.salrowbragundogs.co.uk/ Got our Lab and Springer from there and strongly recommend. Jez & Julie are great and don’t just breed them but also work their own on the moors. Alternatively, Castlemans which will be closer to you https://www.castlemansgundogs.co.uk/works Phillipa breeds and trains gun dogs. We took both of ours to her and she is brilliant and her dogs are top. She is well known as a top trainer and regularly displays at Crufts, she also works her dogs. Either, you won’t be disappointed Good luck and if your do visit them say hello from Kev & Sarah
  6. Well my understanding is from all the interest that people said they would back it, only 5 turned up to the initial meeting. It’s like everything, everyone is keen until you ask them to attend something or give up some time and less than a handful appear. If a club got going, all those that said they were keen would suddenly appear but not be willing to do anything to help run it. It’s the main reason that I stepped away from it after not being able to attend the meeting due to ill health
  7. Hi Adam did you contact Dave on the number I gave you? He was taking this forward
  8. Had the same issue with our springer when she was that age. She ate but seemed so skinny and the vet said it wasn’t a problem. She is now 2 1/2 and filled out. We feed our dogs on Kibble from CSJK9 and all we did was up her intake by 40g a day. Don’t think you have anything to worry about Charlie
  9. I only leave a bird out for a few minutes if I know it is stone dead if more birds are coming in. Otherwise I either send the dog out within a minute or immediately if I can see it’s in distress. Don’t care if that means I miss others coming in. Most important thing to me is to dispatch an injured bird ASAP Last year on rape (didn’t have the dog with me) a bird I winged, crashed into the middle of the field and then proceeded to head for shelter in a hedgerow. I left the hide and spent a good half an hour trying to get it as it kept hopping from one side of the hedge to another. Birds were coming into my decoys while this was happening but just thought it was the right thing to do. Don’t understand people leaving injured birds when they could be retrieved and dispatched
  10. Took a day off work to spend on the peas. Had been out a couple of times when they were first drilled and didn’t even see a pigeon despite the day before, them being everywhere. Loads of crows but that was during the GL debacle so couldn’t shoot them, much to the dismay of the farmer. Since the new GL came in have had 11 one day (not great I know) and 6 in a couple of hours one evening last week. Today was much better. Birds were coming in as I was setting up the pattern. Was set up at 10:30. Due to the size of the field it was never going to be a bumper day (without another gun or two) despite the number of birds around but finished at 3:30 with 38 for 85 shots. Missed some real sitters and at one point missed 6 in a row some of which seemed dead certs then took the next 8, some of which were left to right on the wind going at a fair pace. Also had a right and left which was pleasing. All in all an enjoyable day out
  11. Well done Welsh1 Your diet doesn’t look like a drop in calories, it’s a massive reduction in carbs. I eat in the same way and have done for 2 years now. At only 5’ 7” at one point I was over 14 stone I was like a barrel. Then got introduced to the low carb, high fat (good fats only) way of eating. Lost 2 stone in 4 and a bit months losing 2lb a week and kept the weight off. No spuds, rice, bread, pasta etc. It’s a way of life now and if you do fancy some carbs at some point, as long as you keep it to less than 50g a day, it’s all good. Another bonus eating this way is you don’t feel hungry like you do with carbs but you must replace the carbs with good fats and your body will eat it’s own fat for energy. Someone once told me when the lionesses kill their prey, the lion gets first dibs and eats the offal and fat first leaving the majority of lean meat for the rest of the pride......you never see a fat lion! Keep it up mate
