  1. Like I say go on Facebook. Beaters and pickers-up page(has nearly 8 thousand members ) .I'm sure you will find People who will bite your arm off for such a generous offer 👍
  2. I think all these comments are a bit harsh . Im a part time keeper , i also I beat on several shoots . Some I get paid some I don't doesn't bother me it's the passion and love of it I do it for . I think 2 boundary and full day is more then fair . If You have no luck on here . If You have it try Facebook there's a group called beaters and pickers -up . I'm sure you will find many who think your offer is more then fair .
  3. I'm based near Stansted airport way
  4. Does anyone know where you can get that patterning paper with a pheasant on it ?. Many thanks Ferret
  5. Intresting thanks guys I have a friend who is finding 32-30g to painful . (He has a bad shoulder) so trying to find out what would be the best cartridge to recommend him
  6. Intresting and smoothest in general ? I would imagine a 28g cartridge ?
  7. Love these reports thanks for sharing
  8. Just for intrested what do people find the smooth cartridges to shoot? I never take any notice of recoil but I know people who do and can't stand 32g cartridges? So just want to get people's opinions?
  9. This is on a 2000 acre estate and our numbers are normally the same every year . I think stuartyboy is right as just this week I've all of a sudden noticed them to appear again had 10 in the last 3 days with the 410 when feeding and have seen a few appear round the feeders. Seems like the natural food lasted longer then normally and now they are attacking the pheasant feeders !
  10. This is very intresting to read . Round our way we normally take 200-250 squirrels on the shoot and have a lot round the feeders and such (we have a lot of woodland ) . This year we have only had about 20 and have hardly seen a squirrel . I was going to post if Anyone had seen a dramatic drop in the numbers?
  11. Finally got round to decanting and bottling all my drinks . Was also some sampling involved. The damson rum and blackberry whisky is amazing!!
  12. Afternoon all thought I would share this recipe. Ingredients. 1 packet of Smokey bbq fajita seasoning 2 goose breast or 8 pigeon breasts (whichever you prefer or have ) Mushrooms Onion Peppers Sourcream Wrap Grated cheese First get your goose breasts or pigeon breasts (whichever you prefer both work great) brine them in salty water for 36 hours changing the water inbetween . Once brined take out and wash with clean water then pat dry with paper towels . Next if using goose breasts cut in half thickness wise and put in a container or bag and cover with fajita seasoning and shake well for a even coat . For pigeon just drop breasts in whole and shake . Leave in fridge for a couple of hours . Next cut up all your peppers , onions and mushrooms . Get your frying pan hot cook meat to whatever style you want . I like medium rare so about 2-3 minute each side . Then leave to rest in a warm oven for 10 minutes for cutting into strips Next fry up all your peppers, onions and mushrooms. Grate your cheese Get meat out and cut into strips Get wraps out and place a good dollup of sour cream in the middle then fill with meat , peppers , onions and mushrooms and top of with grated cheese . Fold wrap and serve Beautiful Works with duck also .
  13. That's exactly why I got them . I usually use 36g 3s but seeing as these are bio wads thought I would give them a try . Anyone know why they are only available in 2 3/4 ?
  14. Picked up 50 if these today and was just wondering how others have found them? Got the 32g 3s . Wanted to try something a bit friendly on our countryside

    Duck guns

    For my ducks shooting which is all inshore. I use my old sxs which is 3/4 and full choked and use gamebore32g 4 bismuth . Have wondered about using standard steel through it but wasn't sure ? Otherwise where I need a bit more I use a hatsen escort s/a with eley VIP steel 3inch 36g 3 or for closer stuff eley VIP steel 32g 5s and have also used 32g 3s
