I've done that quite alot. The issue i'm finding with Edinburgh is that it's tied down. There is almost a queue for permissions or the farmers can't give it. I went to about 6/7 farms and none of them Could give the permission as they didn't have the shooting rights as the land was all rented off one person. I've had pleanty pf permissions before, i just seem to be struggling with Edinburgh.
I've had this exact scenario. I didn't really "pull the birds off" i sat near the flight line that they were going onto the field on; and put out decoys 30 yds or so away from the boundry with my back against the fence. Alot of birds showed interest and came in low on their way into the fielf which presented a shot, but i was suprised at how many decoyed in. Good luck
I often use sticks on bags to great affect. They are light and portable. The last time put out ten sticks on bags and 3 full body decoys i ended up with a mixed bag in the 90's. But i agree; if available nothing beats the real thing. Corvids are crafty *******.
Good afternoon all. I'm new(ish) to pigeon watch; I have had the account a while, but never really used it.
I'm looking forward to meeting as many people as i can on here for a few reasons, and they are:
1 - Expand my horizons and own opportunity.
2 - Learn from all of your experiance.
3 - To gain shooting permission in and around Edinburgh.
I hope everyone had a good chrimbo.
I look forward to chatting to you in due course.
Good afternoon all. I'm looking for pest control opportunities in the Edinburgh area. I'm looking to use a shotgun to control Corvids, Pigeons and Rabbits on a regular/irregular basis based on the farmers needs. If you have a permission available please get in touch. Thank you, Rich
Hello all. I live in Edinburgh and i am currently seeking shooting permission within about 30 mins of Edinburgh ski slope. I'm not new to this and welcome anyone with a pest issue to contact me with their details. Thank you, Rich.
