  1. Fantastic topic. Always wondered where it all started 👍
  2. Had loads of O/U's over the years and whilst I do like a nice O/U (or even SxS) I've always found semi autos to have more utility and have just always taken to them so much better. My Browning Gold fits me like a glove and I shoot with it far better than any other non semi-auto gun I've used. Dunno what it is about it but I've got a spare Browning Gold exactly the same just in case!
  3. Aye I use longjohns. I do have some nice heated touring trousers and jacket but would need to upgrade stator on this 650 first... I do have a 200w sator knocking around as been meaning to get a beefy LED lamp on it, least then I can plug my heated jacket and trousers in and won't be so much of a problem. Or just wait till next summer 😆 But yeah bike is great for mobility around the farm.

    Is about 20-30 mins of flat out moderate to intense cardio I find. I normally do 40 mins on the cross trainer on one of those interval settings and that's usually about 450 / 500 cals. managed to do 900 in an hour once but that was pure flat out and never managed it again lol

    Pretty depressing. Used to do a lot of tractor work and let myself go. Dunno how really but ended up well over 20 stone. Not exactly sure how much but pretty sure when I converted from KG the last time the dr's weighed me it worked out about 23. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to realise that that's pretty outrageous so decided to do something about it. Went hell for leather for a year and a half and got my **** down to about 14.5 stone. This was a couple years ago. Felt bloody amazing. Started doing park runs and whatnot and couldn't believe that I was actually able to run and do sporty
  6. Right so. Actually used my brain for once... Had a word with the farmer and asked if he had a couple of barrels or anything I could use for storage knocking about and if so could he drop down to a couple of places where I would be shooting which he did. I then used the missus car (after promising her I won't take it off road a million times 😆) and made a stash at both sites each with some basic tools, pruning saw, shovel, cable ties, poles, netting, decoys and folding seats etc. So now all I have to do is load up a medium sized bergen with my gun broken down, some munchies, cartridges et
  7. for now till crops are growing again
  8. Maybe I'm just trying to make life difficult for myself, but then I've always been pig headed and stubborn like that 😁 Some of the land I will be shooting over crops is bordered by trees so yeah I can use my foldable pruning saw to make some hides up along the field margins. I had not actually thought of that 👍 Some of the other land will be more difficult, especially around the pigs as most of those fields are pretty open although there are the odd hay bale stacks dotted around I could use to make some cover against. (I will be using a hushpower for shooting around the pigs in case anyon
  9. I have another set of rims with fat knobblies. Those are just my pavement smashers. I normally ride in boots anyways so that's not an issue. Will have to see if theres a tank bag for MX/Enduro style tanks. Could be useful. Not so worried about coming off really. I've ridden loaded enduros and heavy adventure bikes (Africa Twin, Varadero, Triumph tiger, V strom etc) all over the world. Not saying it'll never happen but, been there done that. Be alreet. But that was my thinking for an atv style gun case. As long as the gun is alright then I'm happy. I do actually have a 200L be
  10. The main thing is what about the rest of the stuff? Was just wondering if anyones done it before what what stuff to use? Will need to be absolute bare minimum as will not be able to carry much stufff at all. What about hide, seat, bag for other stuff etc. Yeah sort of thing I'm after. Just also need to be able to find or make a hide that packs down super small into a small fishing bag or something
  11. Trailer won't work, because my bike is a motocross/enduro it has no real rear subframe. The frame that is there is just for the rear mudguard. Would be difficult enough just to manage to figure out how to get a gun case fixed onto it. I have seen someone done it to one of these before though so it's definitely do-able.
  12. Again, did think about getting a quad as seems like logical option as buying another 4x4 just for going shooting is a bit excessive - and impossible given current situation with parking. Annoyingly, I only have maybe 2.5 - 3 ft access down side of house, just enough to get bike in and out but that's it. Not much space out front either... And sell the XR! Never! She's a keeper
  13. Last perm I had for a local keeper I just put everything in the his chest freezer. I neither have a chest freezer nor anyone that would want to take anything that I might be shooting. End of the day pest control/crop protection is a legitimate and justified reason for shooting and I've been after a perm for a while and could potentially lead to other opportunities - we all know how hard it is to get good perms these days! As for the Antis... Well, they're always gonna Anti. No matter what we do or don't. They will always find something. I just ignore em, best way.
  14. Crop protection and keeping pests away from the pigs
  15. So literally randomly and out of the blue today I've managed to get myself a perm on a bit of land that hasnt been shot in ages 🤑 Only thing is transport. It's fairly local but I don't have a 4x4 anymore and it's quite muddy down there. I have a XR650R though and was wondering if it would be viable to use for getting down there... Was thinking of sticking an ATV style guncase on the rear. Could use a fishing bag for some extendable poles and net for hide and could have a bag for carts and odds and ends. Just wondering if it's doable... If I end up shooting loads I dunno what I'
