    Guidance required!

    aye we seem to be lucky in the south west ..I metal detect as well as shoot "rough" at present over the years have managed 18 farms for detecting and at the present 10 for shooting all have been acquired by face to face meeting ..tis hard work but you MUST sell yourself but don't be too PUSHY ….Agriculteral contractors are are good source of information as to what farms ,crops are being hit and who owns them ,,as previous comments introduce yourself to keepers offer to beat on shoot days fox drives and roost shoots " beaters day at the season end " my daughter beats but doesn't shoot so she nominates me for her place season end ..farmers and keepers do appreciate an extra pair of eyes around ...choose a quiet time to knock on doors . if a lab or springer dashs out to greet you make it you friend ." do you work your dog?" yes .ok he is a shooting man ..he will have an idea what you want you now have a foot in the door...build on it ..

    Shooting over hemp?

    used to use hemp twine for making purse nets years ago .it was good to know that unlike nylon nets if you lost a hemp net it would rot away ,,,several years ago there were 100s of acres of opium poppies grown in Hampshire..i believe the by product was oil for the paint trade and seed for the baking industry, often wondered if anyone tried to get the latex from them

    A word of warning

    what a waste

    friend of mine was out this morning with his missus dog walking on the stubble fields near where I found the dumped pigeon ..and yes under the hedge bordering the stubble was a large amount of pigeon bodies .his wife was most disgusted ..if they cannot use the birds at least take them to the council tip ,tis only 2 miles from where this is happening .
