  4. Hi all i am running the one at Kibworth would be good to see some of you guys there, its a great ground and the last one there was a good day. we all learn a bit on these days and shoot some clays too ATB Flycoy

  6. Mr Wasp, Rape, well where to start! you will find pigeon will be suicidal on stubble, especially if your lucky enough to have the only field around, saying that with 2500 acres probably not. the problem is the fields are often big and the seed is scattered all over like pepper so you will see the whole field covered in birds if they are on to it. so as a previous post try to locate the flight line in and get under it if you can, take your time with the hide and get it well blended in maybe a scrim net roof if your under the flight line. use a rotary and a flapper if you have one, try a tick shaped pattern to lead the birds in and maybe a floater on the approach to give confidence, leave some good space between the decoys so they feel confident to get out in a rush. watch the dog on the sharp stubble sticks. hope this helps and thanks for the post.

  7. Styla Thanks for the post, much appreciated. good to hear you enjoyed the day. on the coaching line at the Kenilworth show this weekend if your there. ATB Flycoy
  8. Hi all unfortunately i am unable to Attend as normal so looks like BB will have to do a bit more work than normal! take the time to go and say hello to the lads and lasses on the Basc coaching Line cheaper lessons for members and a free lesson if you join on the day, you might be lucky enough to get a lesson from Bakerboy. All the best and have a good bank holiday Flycoy
  9. Hi, all above comments spot on, good ground, receptive to novices, ground staff helpful, gun shop and air rifle section. good breakfast. lots of stands sporting, DTL, compact, skeet, high tower, coaching stands, rifle range, air rifle ranges and more. Speak to Rose one of the bosses and get her to show you around she has been there for years and knows her stuff. ATB Flycoy
  10. Arm3000gt Hi the main hall is on 2 levels with stands downstairs selling gear, Tidepool is normally there and decoy suppliers. its not a massive show and can be a bit cold so good that a lot of it is indoors. upstairs in the hall will be Chris Green and basc simulator. the Basc coaching line is there so pop down and say hello, i will be there coaching Sunday. hope you enjoy the first gamefair of the year! ATB Flycoy
  11. Was going to say that, be careful not to upset the new farmer, i would suggest you get a good hide well concealed( bale hide if its still there) where the flight lines cross each other. FB is right go where they go, but the next best thing is close to a flight line . if the wind is coming from the top of the picture then it will be crossing you from the left in the hide so the birds will land from the right, put a roof on the hide for the ones approaching from the rear/the large arrow. use a well spaced L or tick pattern short side along the front of the hide, the corner to your left as you look out the hide and tail the long side in line with the large arrow. This will encourage the birds to turn and commit. Rotary would help and a flapper, decoys a good 12 ft apart hope this makes sense and helps Best of luck and stay safe Flycoy
  12. Falcon, Sound advice from FB Obviously an old image so what is the crop at the moment that is attracting the birds, rape? Flycoy
  13. Hi all will be there for the day so will be a busy day but will get through a lot and teach you some, but learn a lot myself. Its a relaxed course in a great location with good facilities and a warm welcome from the staff on the ground. good shop on site and an air rifle section too. need a few ,more for the day so take a look at the Basc website for booking details Thanks Flycoy
  14. Yes A long drive, but well worth going. Met some good people, keen on their sport. one of the best i have done and everyone stayed keen and interested even with the cold. Spending a day talking to people about pigeon shooting, with a bit of banter, good way to spend a day! great ground facilities and a warm welcome! Thanks to all, good to meet you and put faces to Avatars Flycoy
  15. Hi all Checked in with the office and we have 11 booked in for the 7th feb so good number, space for some more though if anybody fancies it looking forward to the day ATB Flycoy
