  1. I thought I'd share my findings with some new deeks. My old flocked decoys were tired so it was time to look for some replacements. I decided on the enforcer decoys, pricy yes but I've had my last set for 5/6 years and they get used most weekends sometimes twice if I get the time so they'll get well used. Shooting over drillings the day was slow with only a few pigeons coming for a passing fly-by of the pattern with zero willing to decoy. 4 hours with 2 crows and a pigeon to show for it. Not great. The new decoys I'd order had been delivered since I'd left so as home was only
  2. I've just spotted this gem in the new GL26 taken from the 'Diversionary Feeding' section of preventing damage to gamebirds.  Animal by-products legislation does not allow food to be used that would otherwise be used for human consumption, and therefore excludes any animal that has been kept by man, including any fallen stock.

  4. Thanks for the input chaps, I've ordered am FF5 from Nick, I think I'll pick up one of the bouncers too. Whereabouts in the North East are you based Hawkeye?
  5. Good afternoon gents, first time post here so please go easy. First of all Hi, I'm Dan from North Yorkshire! I'd appreciate your thoughts on this. I'm looking for the next piece of equipment (to lug across fields!) and I'm torn between a flapper or a pair of bouncers with flying decoys that I see a few members of PW produce. From what I see I can pick either up for around £60-70 and I'm interested to know which you'd buy first if you could choose one. Or if you do have both which you use most. I generally use a setup of 15-20 flocked shells and a rotary if the pigeons are a
