  1. HI Guys, Does anyone have any recommendaitons on where to by Ely Extra Long 3" Subsonic .410 Magnums - I have tried Just Cartriges, but they are out of stock at the moment.... I am based in Surrey Cheers Trent
  2. Hi guys, just a quick one - what do you prefer and why - wind from behind, or in your face? Looks like tomorrow I might have a stiff breeze in the face - which is going to be cold as well...
  3. Does shooting over OSR get better the as the weather gets colder, or doesnt it matter, and it is just down to when the plants get the growth spurt in late Feb and there are no other food sources around? Looking at my diary of other years on the same perm and crops, it wasnt until end Feb that birds started to show - but also, I seem to remember it was a more mild winter than right now... I am thinking if it is worth trying again this weekend, when it is forecast to be -2 degrees throughout the day...
  4. Hi guys, I managed to get out for the first time in a long time on Saturday to do a bit of crop protection over OSR. There were a few birds flying (away) when I got to the perm around 0800h, but by the time I got in place and set up they were few and far between. The OSR looked like it had been nibbled at some stage, but also looked pretty hammered by the conditions as well I am thinking I am a little to early to get any decent numbers on it at the moment, what is everyone else finding? I blanked, but bloody good to be out. Cheers
  5. Hello guys, Does any one have any reommendations around lightweight seating options for the hide? My son and I currently use a folding garden kneeler (see picture) each, however they are quite heavy and cumbersome to lug across muddy fields. So, any suggests of a lightweight seat alternative would be greatly apprieciated. One consideration would be abilty to use on a slight slope, which might make non adjustable three leg stools tricky. Thanks in advance! Trenta
  6. Me and my boy had a pleasant summer shooting over wheat - was a strange time due to Covid, but great to spend quality time together
  7. Heya Houseplant - where in New Zealand are you from? I am originally from Piha, but have been living in the UK for the past 20 years - the hunting here is pretty good, and the pigeon shooting can be outstanding depending on your location - bit hard to translate that back to NZ quarry as the old kererū would be tasty, but very frowned upon 🙂 I took my Dad out on the pigeons over standing wheat here a couple of years ago and he had a ball - he had never experienced shooting like that before Personally, I cant wait to get back to NZ for a hunting and fishing holiday - I had planned to
  8. Hi there - when driving through Salisbury a couple of weeks ago on my way to Cornwall, I noticed some very interesting prospects - just wanted to know if anyone on here shoots around that area? Thanks Trent
  9. Hello Dave, Fantastic offer - I would be keen to help out if you needed a hand - I have my own gear and happy to bring you lunch as well and shout you a pint after! Please keep me in mind, Thanks, Trenta
  10. Just to back up what Tomto said - as he used live around my way - What we have lost here is St Neot's gain. He is a top lad, loyal friend, great for a pint and a yarn at the pub, oh, and an ok shot as well 😉 I will definately be making the journey up to see the new property when I can. Good luck in your new endeavours mate!
  11. I have tried Rakers, Mole Valley Country stores, TGS, C.& H. Weston and Chichester Armoury (who had some, but not enough)
  12. Hello, I am looking for gun shops in Surrey or surrounds that stock Ely 20 gauge cartridges for pigeons (28 gram 6s) - I am not having much luck - any recommendations?
  13. Looks like the canes from the garden centre will do nicely
  14. Another good point! I use a carp barrow for my gear and that seems to work ok when the ground is dry - bit of a pig when it is muddy!
  15. Yes, I guess that will work - I was thinking something metal, as the ground is like concrete at the moment - a screwdriver with mallet should sort that out though to make a hole for the bamboo
