  1. has any one fished the Sanna bay area of Scotland fresh water or sea i am hopefully having a week there in June many thanks
  2. once again had one of my larsen traps kicked in and the call bird released it was well of public land if the miss guided fools had watched the lapwings that are nesting because of me controlling corvid numbers they may have had second thoughts how ever on a brighter note the ladder trap is set up for crows and catching well baited with eggs which just shows what thet are up to this time of year
  3. ive got a pair of shelducks turned up on the farm itts 3miles from the river wear near chester le street so its a fair way to the sea does any one know if they would nest in such a place if anyone had said such a thing 50 years ago i would not believe it as it was all pit heaps but now its arable land surounded by woods
  4. i shot branchers as a lad first with catapults then air rifles slug guns we called them then would still do it now if needed to how ever rooks in my area have had a massive decline in the 50 years ive been shooting so i for one will leave them alone
  5. forgive me if i am wrong but i thought i could use my 22 rf on land that was approved for that calibre and an open certificate was were you could decide if it was suitable obviously wre you have permission also there are loads of threads on here saying you cant do this or that cause your fac dont state it all mine says is any legal quarry provided the calibre is suitable
  6. just shows ignorance is no excuse going to get some non leady stuff tomorrow
  7. i thought it was to be used on wetland were shot could fall into water and farm land was ok to use lead

  18. i have never seen a harrier decompose but i have seen loads of crows rabbits pheasants etc they melt into the ground pretty sharpish they dont hang around for a detailed examination for a year or so also its always strange how these things are found after grass nettles and sutch have grown over them
