my shooting pal popped in early yesterday morning , to arrange a day on the barley stubble on my shoot. Literally over the fence of my garden.
I said I had seen a few odd ones flitting about but no real numbers, as it had only harvested two days before. As we chatted I said,, come on lets walk over and have a look. I grabbed a couple of auto's out of the cabinet, put 4 boxes of cartridges in my bag plus 6 shell decoys, and walked the 300 yards or so to the barns [on the hill]. we set up in about 3 minutes flat and waited for the fist one to come in, in two hours we were done. with 44 birds on the deck.
Considering we went for a recon. we were both surprised and walked back grinning from ear to ear.
What great sport. I love pigeon shooting.
