  1. I play cricket for a club in the summers. We just received a call from our ground's man that they are having a lot of issues with pigeons as thousands of them coming and feeding on the seeds they put out.. The ground itself is a private land and surrounded by railway track and some houses behind tall popular trees on one side. I want to know what permission we need to help the ground's man.
  2. This gives me a bit more confidence. Thank you for the post.
  3. Thank you all. Thanks for the confidence 🙂
  4. Hi All, We are planning to go on Rape tomorrow. Has anyone had a good day on Rape yet in late December or this week in Jan? The weather looks good tomorrow in Northampton where we shoot, gentle breeze and sunny/clearer day . The farmer has reported that a big flock is around and sits on the rape. But I'm not sure a big flock is a good sign as they will drift away after a couple of shots. Any expert advice will be highly appreciated. I will indeed report back on how it goes tomorrow.
  5. You are very lucky, I am struggling to find a Farm near where I live around Warwickshire area. Really enjoyed reading your blog 🙂
  6. Well done.. I take we don't have any licencing restrictions now on the woodies?
  7. Hello Everyone, We are going to try our luck at our usual place in Northamptonshire tomorrow. The farmers have reported a lot of movement over the last 2 days after strong winds have calmed down. I shall keep you all posted with all the details 🙂 Wish us good luck !
  8. Oops I meant January it was actually on 31st Jan, last day of the season during a rough shoot 🙂
  9. I have a Bretta and it has never let me down. Specially with long and difficult shots. Downed a very difficult wood cock in February January and that will stay with me for a long time 🙂
  10. Thank you both. I am hearing similar news from others around the country. A friend didn't get much up in wales either
  11. Thank you.. Partridges in those hills and Wood Pigeons here are real fun and bring different types of enjoyable challenges. We did rough shoot at the end of the season this year and that was good fun as well. Had a good bag of Wood cocks and pheasants with few hairs 🙂 Well the game watcher said due to warm weather birds were not staying at one place and then there was hardly any wind to do the setup and usually they say blue skies are not ideal for pigeon shooting. As I am still new (1 year experience of woodies) at this so I am learning but glad all the theories were proven wrong
  12. Thanks March Man. Good luck fort the next time 🙂
  13. Thank you 🙂 This was at our usual place near Northampton. Sorry should have mentioned that in my post. 1st day as we just couldn't get time out due to work commitments. Planing another day in a week or so. Thank you and yes will be more around 🙂 Thank you all. Yes I was new to Pigeon shooting last year but been doing shooting for sometime. Mainly Partridges and Quails in the Northern hills of Pakistan 🙂
  14. 1st day of the winter shoot over rape. What a day we had with 5 guns, the total birds in hand 180 with at least 20 to 25 birds lost in the wood. The expectations were not high when we planned the day as it was blue sky and hardly any wind. But we were surprised with the number of birds came our way. The guns never stayed silent for more than 10 mins across 4 fields of rape. Hopefully more such days to come and I shall keep you all posted. This was near Northampton 🙂
