  1. Cheers bobba i was on a flight line last time I was out and also not far from a rookery On a fresh cut silage field last year ,them pigeon were flying by at top speed not intent on coming in but we’re good sport rooks came in random inquisitive they were, would be good to pull them pigeon in off the flight line with the right movement As you say I've always put out dead birds In my pattern on 8” ish sharp hazel sticks , and have noticed recently when looking for shell decoys there are pigeon cradles “never new they existed /old school “ for sale on shooting websites have you used cradles before Also how did you make your own floaters/ landers etc ?
  2. Hi I’m like you, a part timer ,but given the chance to do this wonderful sport on rare occasions i am trying to be better prepared ,able to set up quicker to make the most of it , I don’t have a 4WD vehicle so have to trek a fair way , it would be good to do it in one trip from the van thanks for your response 👍
  3. HI Steve_b_wales thanks for your view 👍
  4. Hi fellow pigeon shooters I am currently revamping my pigeon shooting kit and have always used full body decoys in the past and am looking at going flocked shell decoys on wobble pegs but have never used any before which do you guys prefer and why ? looking forward to your replies lonnford I know the obvious ie takes less space and lighter😉

    1. We already have 250 poults and 250 ex layers which we paid £3.50 poults and £2 ex layers was hoping to get some more poults for £2.50 and £3.00 as a bit of a late set up in another part of shoot
    2. Hi guys . we had our ex layers arrive around 1 month ago 250 of them, we have lost a few to the old buzzards any ideas on keeping them at bay. only had hen birds this time though .and did manage to collect around 40-50 eggs when they first arrived. yesterday we had 15 hatch in our incubator 😀 and still have several left to hatch we have noticed 1 cockbird in the pen and he looks absolutely knackered. ..lucky ******. what is considered to be average hatch rate on eggs in the incubator
