    What a day on Beans Stubble

    Thank you.. Got similar complements from my experienced partner as well 🙂 They were decoying fine on the bean Stubble, we brought them to this filed for the Photo. The reason being was most of the fields were empty ready for drilling in that area. Agreed but We couldn't find game dealers who would take them, so it was all family and friends who took them. Thanks for the tip 🙂
  3. Our farmer called me on Last Thursday when they were ploughing the fields for drilling. They reported significant numbers on the two Beans stubble fields and that was enough encouragement for us to show up on the Saturday morning at 8am. The weather was just perfect, plenty of sunshine and gentle breeze.. We were two and decided to sit in the two opposite corners of the field. I got into action as soon I was all setup around 10 am. I didn't get much rest till 3pm and ended up with 70 in hand and about 5 lost in the bushes. My friend who was was sitting at a much busier and better hidden place ended up with 72 as well. There were plenty of birds but they were equally challenging as somehow only few decoyed even after changing the pattern 3 times.. I personally prefer challenging shots :-). The last hour was better as at that point they were dropping just fine. We had mix of adults and young ones so no issues there. I could have gone over hundred on my own but gave up as I didn't want to waste the birds as we couldn't find many people who would take them. If you know anyone in Birmingham area who would take birds (even free of cost) then let me know please., We will keep them in mind next time we go. The grand total in hand was 142 ! Thanks for reading 🙂
  4. Hi Fellows, We are planning a shoot in Notinghamshire in a couple of weeks time. The Farmers are going to drill Wheat and Barley and have invited us to keep an eye on the woodies. If anyone got any tips over these crops, then that would be much appreciated 🙂

    Tomorrow in Northamptonshire

    Hi Folks, It was a great day for us as we didn't expect many but we ended up with 70 birds in hand and about 5 to 6 were lost in the bushes. To start with it was slow as we got there around 10:30 and it took us about an hour to setup the hide and the decoys. Around 1:30pm we had about 8 and we didn't miss a single bird which came our way. So now now we had just enough for couple on the rotary and few to decoy. All the fun started around 3pm but we were struggling to decoy them as the birds were not droping as they would normally do. Decoy pattern was a bit of a challenge for us as there was hardly any wind so thats where we struggling a bit on how to deploy them for these birds who didn't like our setup. We still managed to shoot 25ish birds in next couple of hours, had they decoyed more we could have scored many more... Around 6pm my friend decided to go on the opposite field and left me here on my own as he thought that we could be better of splitting. It worked ! I changed my decoys as well by breaking the U shape into two lines by leaving good 25 yards between them right infron of my hide for the birds to come in and land. This worked and that's where I started to have fun. It was a very warm day so fluids were needed aplenty. Yet it was a a very enjoyable day as my new 30" Bretta did a great job ? Thanks for reading this and for all the tips as they all helped me a lot. More stories to come... Thank you !
