    Countryfile next week

    Then just to fill a bit of air space they keep going back to the Dales for catch up on the famer and his wife with loads of kids " Boring" Not that i watch it very often but when i do these always seem to be on which is possibly why They did one around here shown over Xmas which i missed But most of the so called regulars at the local on the programme are the very ones you never see at the pub normally

    Dumped Pheasants...

    The estate i beat on DOES NOT bury their birds either What we and the guns do not take They are collected by the game dealer Christmas has come and gone Where are all the millions of turkey & chicken & goose carcasses gone haha Into the bloody wheely bin and into landfill to be buried

    Browning 525 16 bore.

    I'd second that of OB Just checked and a 525 game one 30" barrel weighs 7lb 3oz - 7lb 4oz compared to my Jubilee prestige at just under 6 1/2 lb They say that the 525 16g is based on the 20 bore action but i used to have a 525 hunter 12g that weighed around 7lb 3oz Does'nt seem to add up So if your 12g feels heavy now then a Lincoln would be the better choice weight wise and are ideal for long walked up days NB Lincoln are still offering the £50 cashback deal on new guns

    Dented rib

    Carefully clamp a piece of wood along the top of the rib, two small wedges in from either side of the dent and nip them in with a clamp

    Dumped Pheasants...

    Is this any worse than all human food waste going into wheelie bins then into land fill This now is a massive bowl of contention where BOGOF and through it out into wheelie bins as it is out of date ( total waste of produce ) but seems to be accepted by the masses As stated most game enters the food chain and enjoyed by all How many of these anti's have ate and fed their kids on chicken nuggets, dippers, kievs kentucky fried chicken etc Where these chickens have been force fed in battery houses with poor light and higiene for 8 weeks then slaughtered for the mass markets which are totaly unhealthy to human consumption But is acceptable to the anti's but game that has roamed free for months fed on wheat and barley and maze and wild berry and seed is not acceptable As to the question above i breast a few birds and the carcassaes are placed in a hole in a wood with the intention to place a cam to see where they go as next morning when i take the dogs out there is nothing left not a feather But have seen sparrow hawks and kestels feeding on them in the past which i am quite happy to see especialy in hard winters Moto of the story Keep eating game and the anti's will join the dinosaurs" Extinct" eating ****

    What I learnt today!

    Funny enough just lost my bead halfway through a pheasant shoot yesterday Must've worked it's way loose and no sign of it in the slip But made no difference to my shooting I'll just contact Anglo Italia and have it replaced

    I am not in a dissagreement with burying game carcasses but the way it was carried out due to the sensitive issues regarding game and game shoots All wildlife thrive on dead carcasses and fully agree Incidently a farmers cow or sheep dies in the field he/she is not allowed to bury it but has to be collected and incinerated

    Dumped Pheasants...

    Just seen this tonight when i got in shootinguk site Done by Hunt saboteurs association Probably breasted out But it is not allowed, to bury any dead carcasses unlawfully whether cow sheep pig etc As i do not condone this practice There are some underlying issues regarding the game dealers and government practices that need addessing Last season the dealers were paying 75p per bird This season the estastes have to pay the dealers 45p per bird for them to collect them I take as many birds as i can and pass them on to friends and family Just recently i was asked by an associate where he could get a small quantity of birds for his dad at reasonable cost as he could'nt find out where he could get fresh game Hence i got him 20 brace and his dad was over the moon Another work mate rings me every season who takes around 40 brace Soemthing is not right where there are people wanting game birds but do not know where to get them

    Motion to Ban Lead Shot

    Too true figgy I seem to remember a few years back where they got fox hunting bannned ? ( is it ) and that was meant to be the start of the finnish for all gaming sport But it's ok to go round with knives & machetes butchering other human life Do'nt see the anti's raising their issues with this disgracefull behaviour Just this week it has been anowsted that we now have to stop eating meat to save the planet Just more infidile minor upstarts that is trying to make a name for themselves in the political arena and cannot address the real issues in society And i bet they eat meat and game albeit wrapped up in a nice polythene wrapper bought at Tesco ( who do'nt use British sources ) Sorry for the rant

    Was thinking of mentioning ASI myself but was'nt sure they'd deal with general public Good advice I know John Rothery will not deal with the public only trade

    Construction apprenticeship

    Have to agree I did the same 5 year day release worked both on bench joinery and on private sites so best of both worlds Working for a small country joinery business The college was great for the theory and we did bench joinery We had 4 apprentices came onto the job we're on 2 brickies 1 plasterer and 1 joiner the brickies were perthetic and would not work no matter how the masons tried to teach them both left The joiner lad was good at the start and keen but dwindled off more interested in his mobile and left The plasterer has stuck to it and will help anyone and is still keen and can plaster The whole system is wrong And yes always taking photos of them standing next to work done my us tradesmen Biggest problem with the young is the bloody mobiles They're on them the whole time even when i tried to warn them that their boss will go off on a one They could'nt care But i find myself having to show much older blokes how to do jobs as they have'nt served a proper apprenteship either

    Single Gun Storage Help

    I would'nt recommend fitting in a loft As said ease of access for one Condensation can be a problem, so to the temperatures freezing in winter and extreme heat in summer Your bound to have a bit space somewhere in a corner or inside a fitted cupboard As said buy a decent sized one you can always store your cleaning rods and cartridges in it if you do'nt buy another gun Or even store all the spare cash you'll have by not buying more guns

    William Powell perdix

    Depends where you are if you're looking for your nearest dealer You can google them as there are a few up and down the country Honesberie shooting school castleguns here in the N East I would steer clear of sportsmanguncentre if you're after a game gun go for an Artemis with solid top rib depending on your budget and preference But that would be my next gun on my list But i am an avid caesaer Guerini man All the Italian O/U guns were and are based on the best English O/U guns of the early 20 century and were made for the English market as were the Spanish SxS'ds

    William Powell even call the gun the Artemis Perdix and stick another £600 plus on top

    William Powell perdix

    You should just go direct to B Rizinni They will custom fit a gun to you in your spec ie an Artemis There was a thread on here a year or two back by someone who went through William Powell and it ended up heading through the courts Plus it will probably be cheaper and you may get a trip round their factory ( unless you want the the William Powell name on ) Second that as i have the Highlander sideplate

    Not that i've heard of up this end anyway I live near an Army range where live firing is common so will non toxic apply to the forces now?? The report i was reading They did'nt mention what non toxic componenets they were using

    Motion to Ban Lead Shot

    German scientists have been developing and testing non lead bullets and been comparing them to lead They concluded that at normal stalk distance they were on a par except for large game Deer and boar who had a longer run off period after being shot and lying down and dying The Danish say there is longer run off with non toxic compared to lead at normal to longer distance and apparantly they are coming into Scotland on trial
