  1. Glad it came through... Great fun even though a relatively small bag.
  2. Hmm I definitely posted it somewhere. I'll copy and oaste it again and put it in here instead. Further to the posts a week ago. I went out on a very bright calm day to a field of Rape. Had a really good 90mins before my rotary battery failed. However, ended up with 19 birds and a fun couple of hours. Thanks for the advice people and a quick video for those interested. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2gph2gvwbnor3sr/Pigeons on OSR Jan 22.mp4?dl=0 Did it come through? If not it may be because of the Dropbox link in the message.

  6. Will do. Thanks for the replies.
  7. Thanks... they do seem to be concentrating on a particularly bare patch. I can set up fairly close with only a 50m or so to walk. Tomorrow seems to have a 4 to 8 mph breeze so I'll give it a go.
  8. Hi all I have an opportunity to decoy on a good size OSR field. I looked yesterday and there was a steady stream of twos and threes landing in a particular area. Everything looks good to have a bash but there is next to no wind for the next week forecast. Should I give it a go or hold off until the wind picks up . Many thanks
  9. Thanks again Going to try a different field tomorrow where i can have the wind almost on my back. Have to walk and carry everything a few hundred yards but guess that's all part of the fun
  10. Hello again. Thanks for all the helpful posts. Not tremendous success but that was because as soon as i set up it came over black and heavy rain for several hours. Left hide came back around 3pm till 7pm. Put decoys out about 40m. Chose a low part of hedge and yes some flew over the top but some just came from left and right along hedge and turned sharply into the wind. Some even came up the field with the wind but didnt attempt to land and flew off. Ended up with 18. Should have had more but hey - new to this! What i did find was that several of the birds were not a clean kill as i was shooting from behind as they turned into the wind to land. Broke their wings but needed to chase after them down the field to dispatch. Think i had the magnet in the wrong place (20m in front of hide) before the u shape decoy pattern. think i would have had a better draw if I put it to one side or beyond the decoys. Going to have another go during the week.
  11. Ok many thanks Will have a go this afternoon and update as to the outcome.
  12. Thanks Thought that may help. The hedge behind is quite low rather than high trees, so am hoping they will come from behind and drop in. ​Was going to use a magnet - should i put this beyond the decoys (have seen that normally you would put it to one side or close in infront of the hide before the decoys.
  13. Morning all. First time to the forum as very much a beginner. I'm off shooting latter to a field I've been watching for a few days. I've read lots about decoying and wind direction etc but the only really safe place in this field means that the wind will be blowing straight into the face of the hide. I cant seam to find any hints or advice as to the best pattern in this situation. Any tips would be appreciation Thanks in advance..
