  1. I’ve just got a Wraith HD 4-32x50, and the included IR is as bad as I was warned it would be! Does anybody have any recommendations for a decent illuminator for up to £100?
  2. There’s no rape around here at all, nobody’s bothered planting it this year. It’s all either wheat, barley or oats. I finished on 27. Not a massive bag but enough for a couple of hours stood under a tree with just a pocket full of cartridges.
  3. I was out roost shooting on Wednesday. Got into the wood at 3.30 but the pigeons didn’t really start to come in until 4.30, apart from a few solitary ones that I managed to knock over. Once they did, it was thick & fast for 40mins.

    firewood

    I’m burning mostly beech this year, but that’s only because a massive old beech keeled over in the small wood last winter and has provided me with a huge amount of timber. It dried beautifully during the summer and is burning equally as beautifully now. My log pile also has ash, sweet chestnut (good, but keep the door shut if you like your rugs without holes!), oak, apple, birch & hazel in it; basically, a selection of what grows on the farm and either fell over or needed dropping in the last year or so.
  5. 1 dog, 1 vixen last night; .243, lamp & mouth call = 8
  6. 5 last night. 3 with the .243, 2 with the .17hmr. Total = 200
  7. I like to have the paper map for my main nav in the hills & use my phone for backup if absolutely necessary. Maps & compasses don’t have batteries that can run out!
  8. ‘OS Locate’ is a very good free app that gives you a 6fig grid reference that you can then apply to the map if unsure. The actual OS mapping app is also very good, but you need to subscribe/buy the paper maps & enter the download code with them.
  9. Turn on the ‘adult content blocking’ filter on your router. That’ll help.
