  1. My JRT was a fussy little sod at first, but we held firm & only put food down for him at the allotted mealtimes. If he didn’t eat it, the bowl was taken away (or was eaten by the spaniel if we weren’t quick enough). It took him 24hrs to eat something when it was put down & a week of enforced mealtimes until he figured out what he had to do. He’s been fine since with his food (Skinners Maintenance with Butcher’s tinned tripe/sardines in oil once a week)
  2. The FAQ on the BASC website clearly says that shooting pigeons for crop protection is allowed under the most current legislation.
  3. It turned up today; it’s not bad at all! I think the neighbours may have been wondering what the hell was going on though.
  4. I use an Evo67 from TorchFactory for foxing on my .243, but switch to the Evo 38 head if used on my .17hmr (Tikka T1X) for rabbits as the big head unbalances it. Top kit for the money.
  5. Hi all, I’m just getting into Wildfowling (did a couple of flights last season & loved it). I’m looking at getting a couple of calls & practicing before next season. What’s everybody’s thoughts on the BG Double Nasty for mallard? I’d rather save money where I can, and it’s quite reasonably priced. Cheers
  6. One dog & one vixen last night with the .243. Total = 30
  7. Mine (3” Magnum model) cycles 28gr 7s no worries at all when on the clays.
  8. 2 with HMR before fog stopped play = 1518

    Finally got out & onto a charlie after what seems like an age. The farms are all way too wet to drive, so I resorted to walking with rifle, lamp & sticks. A scan around the field behind the main farm buildings & adjacent to the main pheasant pen showed eyes that started trotting away. However, the wind was firmly in my favour so I set up on the sticks and had a little squeak... 30 seconds later, this big old boy was running towards me down the hedgerow from 200yds away! It took a bark to stop him & a 58gr out of the .243 into the chest to drop him. He’s the biggest, heaviest charlie I’ve ever shot, a proper old chunk.
  10. Indeed, it was a very close shave! When the garage replaced the diff & transmission oils, they they were a little bit watery...
  11. I popped a new air filter in there yesterday and had a good look at the old one, and couldn’t find any moisture. What I think happened was it went up the exhaust (which is a lot lower than I thought it was...) and choked the engine out that way. The truck is in for new (non-screeching) belts on Tuesday anyway, so I’ll get them to do a quick oil change and check the diffs out too.
  12. I think I’ve been a very lucky chap! Looks like it’ll need a snorkel chucking on it at some point to avoid it happening again (or sending the missus out to check water depths first 🤣)
  13. Nice one, cheers. I pooed myself when I did it (my own stupid fault), as I’ve only had it a couple of weeks and just had the cam belt, pulleys, water pump & a few other bits done on it to get it sorted out. I was planning on giving it an oil change anyway next week, so will chuck a new air filter on it too whilst I’m at it.
  14. Just opened it up and the casing is bone-dry inside and the filter feels ok to the touch. Is there anything else to look for?
