    Looks fantastic! Amazing how well they keep once preserved
  3. @oldypigeonpopper I jumped straight on fenny’s offers and I have a duck /pigeon/duck day booked up with him and also a day decoying, I’ll likely book another day too 😁I’m also booked on to do some beating this season and have a partridge day later in the year, I’ll keep plugging away in the search for a local permission too. Thank you for the advice though 👍🏻 Apologies on the slight hijack @Ultrastu
  4. Sounds like you both had a brilliant time! And a happy farmer is always a good thing 👌🏻 plenty of crops round Essex ready to be harvested and being hit by the pigeons and corvids, wheat, barley, oats and rape all being smashed but it seems everyone I ask already has shooters, the closest I’ve come to a lucky break was being asked to send over copies of my licence/ insurance etc and never heard back, chased up and no response 🤦‍♂️ I don’t think my face fits
  5. What a fantastic account of the evening! And to take the last shot together and seal the deal is awesome 👌🏻 Well done chaps 👏🏻
  6. Hi fenny, I have pm’d you regarding the other thread you posted and shall await a response to that but this would also interest me.
  7. 3 down tonight all young dogs .223 +nv total 135
  8. Absolutely fantastic work scully! And the story touched a nerve with me too.
  9. Great post scully, I really do enjoy reading about others outings. it’s even better when you realise just how much of a good day they’ve had 😁
  10. My usual carts for clay shooting have gone up by £10 per thousand at one supplier and £17 per thousand at another. I’m sure this price hike was mentioned on the forum. Couple of months back.
  11. Great post! round my way (Essex) I’ve noticed a lot of movement with farm machinery over the last week or so, barley fields have had a dramatic change in colour (mainly just the ears with the stems still very green) huge flat spots clearly visible with pigeon dripping into them, fields being cut for hay and covered with corvids and a sprinkling of pigeon, a field of osr that disappeared over night (I’m assuming for silage?) and a field of wheat again disappeared over night and ploughed/turned over the following day. I love seeing it all happening around this time of year 👌🏻
  12. It sounds like an excellent couple of hours was had! Well done and a good report.
  13. Obviously goes against the grain, but I love mine. I’ve not had to put it up/down with cold hands but can see where it may be fiddly with cold/numb hands.
  14. Great to see people getting out with the youngsters, I’m hoping to have my two out in the hide at some point this year, not sure if I’m worried or looking forward to it 🤣
  15. I was working on a job near Chelmsford in Essex last week and heard a cuckoo on the neighbouring property, I’d not heard one since I was a youngster
