  1. I'm in the same boat pal. My area seems very well secured and syndicated. I have not given up yet though. I'm looking into joining the nppc if you want to look at that option. I'm also joining my local wildfowling club this coming season. The wildfowlers seem to be alot more willing to share knowledge and secrets from what I gather so far in my dealings with them.
  2. My post wasnt meant as a complaint about the travel. Quite happy with an hour drive to get some shooting. My only beef is that I cant get any permissions nearer home. Whereas everyone seems to say you'll hit on eventually and to keep at it (which I am) My face must just offend people...
  3. Given that I'm having no luck gaining permissions, I'm considering joining the nppc. I would never have thought I'd have to pay for pigeon shooting, but I'm really at a loss. My face just mustn't fit when I door knock. Just wanted to know if anyone is a nppc member and what can be expected. I'd also have to drive over an hour to get there.
  4. I agree. Always been told not to rock up ready to go. I have referenced other places I've shot at as a guest and gave details of the landowner etc But always get met with, we have someone already, or I'll call you if none of the others cant make it. A polite way of saying no I guess. I've even a farmer say he doesnt have a pest problem when the pigeons were streaming in behind him and the field was grey! Did try but got no response
  5. Probably has been asked a multitude of times in this forum..... But..gaining permissions I have currently been trying for around a year with no success. I have business cards printed out, always take copies of basc insurance with me as well as my SGC incase it is needed to be viewed. Dress appropriately and approach when I see crops being hit. Always at a convenient time (early morning before the work kicks off) .But yet I'm still met with set back after setback. I do have one glimmer on the horizon for next season as I've managed to secure some beating and helping out o
  6. As I have now gained my sgc and purchased my first gun. I'm now looking for perms by door knocking which will hopefully produce me some success.... In the mean time however I'm appealing to anyone in Northumberland area who would be interested in maybe letting me come on a pigeon day to show me the ropes. I have all the gear but feel I would benefit from someone who has good experience to show me a few hints and tips. Kindest regards to all Quote

  8. Hi guys, hopefully I've posted in the correct forum/section here...... ... Im new to the shotgun shooting scene, I'm looking for some new perms as the ones I do with the air rifles will not entertain a 12g. I'm also looking for someone who could possibly show me the ropes for decoying and hides. Or indeed share a perm if help is needed but would prefer someone to show me as you cant beat experience. I'm willing to travel and I'm based in newcastle area. Cheers Sam
  9. Nice to see some positive responses. Quite encouraging, but I guess I'll have to just wait and see. I also feel it may differ from force to force too. I'm in Northumberland so I've no idea what they are like, although I hear Durham force are rather understanding in their approach to grant if an applicant is shown to be taking correct measures to address their issue/illness.
  10. Maybe a touchy subject for some. Or a biased one...who knows Just looking for anyone who has experienced this first hand. I have my application in for a shotgun. I have aspergers but it has never stopped me from anything in life. I've a good job, a mortgage, a wife, 2 kids and all the rest of it. I am on antidepressants to help assist with my condition, and have been since my diagnosis many years ago. I have no record of any kind for incidents etc.....but my worry is the police will have a very limited understanding of what aspergers is. A couple of cautions from my teens wh

    Who owns it?!

    Basically asking how you guys find out who owns land or woodlands? Obviously it looks more professional if you know someones name before knocking on the door or contacting them. Instead of of just "are you the owner of...." Question is how do you find out who owns certain land or indeed woodlands adjoining fields etc? Land registry is a fortune!, does anyone else have any other ways? I'm keen to find out Cheers
  12. I appreciate that. As I say I have some smaller permissions but I dont think they would condone me using the shotgun. Plus nosey neighbours would more than likely make a noise complaint or two.
  13. From prudhoe area mate. Cheers for the advice. I'm just getting to grips with all the forums on here. Which forums are best crack? Cheers
  14. Hi everyone New to the forum. Just after advice for permissions mainly. And how to get a better success rate I have just been using air rifles but am due my visit from FEO for shotgun certificate...my issue now consists of....... The main permission I have is no longer available as the new owners want all the shooting for themselves so I'm struggling to find anywhere I could use a shotgun. My other perms are golf courses and paddocks which I'm sure wouldn't take kindly to a 12 bore. I've tried farms etc to no avail at present. Fully insured and have my own business ca
