  1. Hello again - I have an FF6 flapper - however I have problems with the wings of the birds coming off the flapper arms - meaning I have to go out and reset it all the time. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it? I was thinking of bending the point of the flapper arm back, but I am not sure this would work, and it would make mounting the wings more difficult? Thanks in advance, again!
  2. Hi Old'un - the rotary and spreaders are illustrated in the photo below - the spreaders are on the top right corner:
  3. My spreaders dont have that middle bar - where did you get spreaders like that?
  4. Thanks for the response. Now that you explain it like that - the setup makes much more sense. I take it you put the wing spreaders on then position the bird on the magnet arm as you suggest, then bring the wing spreader back up to get the right final position of the birds - right? I guess it is easy when you know how... 🤪
  5. Hi Guys, I am looking for a set of cradles for dead birds that will fit to my pigeon magnet. I have the cradles that came with the magnet, which are basically a V shape - which holds our the wings, however I am looking for a cradle that has a spike in the middle to keep the bird's head up. Any recommendations? Thanks Trent

    Beretta 695

    HI PPP - how are you finding your Beretta 695? I am thinking of buying one - but it is a lot of money so just want to get your opinion.
  7. Hey HP, I just stumbled across your post - I am also from New Zealand (Piha Originally) but have been living in the UK for the past 19 years. I have been really getting into the shooting scene here and have had some amazing days out. My gear consists mainly of Hunting and Fishing apparel that I have bought back from NZ. I try to get back to NZ at least once a year - my parents live in Matakana, so great fishing around there as well. I have a boat back in NZ, but the last time I was back I found it better (and cheaper) to just fish around the rocks - Scandretts bay etc. I got some nice snapper within 5 mins drive! I try to take my boy who is 6 out every weekend here - either shooting for pigeons or crows, fishing or pheasant beating - love the outdoor lifestyle. Not the same as NZ, but it is what you make of it. Enjoy the Spring fising back home! Cheers Trenta
  8. Cheers Steve - are these for full bodied (I guess??) or shell decoys, or is there a specific decoy to use with them?
  9. Hi Guys, I know we are in the wrong season, but can someone tell me (or post a picture) how pigeon lofting hooks work? I know they are supposed to hang from the trees, but how is the decoy (or dead bird) attached? Thanks in advance Trenta
  10. Hi guys, I keep seeing videos on you tube referring to gun auctions and being able to pick up second hand shotguns there. I have done a search online, but not had much joy in finding them - can anyone point me in the right direction for these? I am based in Surrey, but I guess they would have online options as well? Thanks in advance Trent
  11. He is 5 - that photo was somewhat staged. We dont have a gun dog, but my nipper is a crack retriever!
  12. Hello team, Just wanted to post about my first success on the pigeons, and also to thank the contributors on here for their helpful tips and advice. I had been blanking with minimal results up until Saturday when me and my boy finally had some luck. The luck coincided with purchasing and deploying a new rotary with hyperflaps silosocks (after good advice from Old Boggy from this forum). The rotary and decoys worked a treat, and the added movement proved to be the missing element from my pattern, with numerous birds decoying in from long distances. We had a great day on the OSR, and I restored mine and my boys faith in pigeon shooting. We finished with a dozen in the end, but could have had more if we stayed for longer - what a fantastic day, and we will be out again soon for sure!
  13. Thanks OB, what a great reply, and an enjoyable read.
  14. Hello team, Can you advise on what the best pigeon magnets or whirlys and where to buy them? I think my patterns need more movement! Also, can you use a decoy on there rather than a dead bird, as I am having trouble shooting the first birds to start with Thanks in advance Trent
