  1. Our head keeper does a fab job and does all kinds of infusions and just guesses that amounts of fruit/sugar. . . . I would say make a simple batch and keep adding/tasting until perfect!!
  2. OK guys it looks like the room is split between Macs and Seals. . . . Above is mentioned the Macs have to fit correctly-but what is the trick-slightly large or small? Sealskins website offer a few options-but which model is preferred? Cheers
  3. Some interesting replies so far, I have a golf glove I'll try tomorrow at least one hand may prove to be warm! Has anyone tried sailing gloves? Cheers
  4. Hi all, I was out yesterday and it was bitter and my hands were very cold so put a pair of borrowed gloves on and then lost feeling in my hands, which I guess was because they were already too cold. . . . . has anyone had the same and what brand of gloves do you now wear and has anyone found something like deep heat to work? Cheers lads
  5. Hi all, I'm in North Lancs with a budget between £2k to £5k Not a hammer gun but cheers
  6. Hi all, can anyone educate me on a lockable gun case to take on holiday so it can be chained to something either in my car or a hotel room, don't mind if the barrels/stock have to be broken? Cheers
  7. Hi, I'm after an English shotgun medium to high end preferred even if it needs serviced/repaired then I'd still be interested. Cheers
  8. I'm personally open minded but realise others have commitments and financials to consider so it's open for debate if we can gather enough interest, maybe a budget and another high end syndicate maybe feasible if enough people want it I know a good few beaters and pickers but they either are already committed or skint so I can't strum up enough people locally to shoot so thought I'd try on here Are you showing an interest, if so send me a message?
  9. Hi all, just looking to see if we have enough interest to put a syndicate together based out of North Lancs? We can work out details over the summer, but just getting a feel of who would be potentially up for it. . . send me a message Cheers
  10. Would love to help as not too far away but don't have night scopes. . . I've had good results with poison inside small fish heads. I have air rifle/shotgun if I can be of any help in the future. Cheers
  11. Just been down this road mate and not easy but you have already worked that out but this is what I did. . . . . Firstly like many of us, I'm not adverse to some risk but want value for money yet want a policy fit for purpose #1 Find the 3 most common medical issues of your breed #2 Ask your vet practice manager ( not the vet nor front desk ) As you deal with insurance companies on a daily basis, who is the easiest you have found to deal with #3 Check the comparison sites that meet answer #1 and if your vets choice is there then bingo if not pick one on price/risk #4 Finally check BASC members offers, your bank offers, saga if your over 50 etc Good luck
  12. Hi all, just a question to put out there. . . . I understand to starve a dog for 24hrs with a twitchy bottom but what does everyone use as a basic diet to get them back on track to their normal daily food? Cheers
  13. I saw old Xmas trees ( free very shortly ) meshed together to make a warm border around a felled/exposed wood that brought all birds back
  14. There is also the humane side of things. . . . Like probably everyone I prefer a clean kill, yet some are winged/pricked and there need to be dispatched asap and I hate it if delayed or worse; can't be found after the drive...…I understand laws can't be made with peoples feelings in mind and can only be based on facts but it would be nice if the law allowed a trained dog to enter and retrieve a bird without causing an almighty fuss
