  1. I have seen a previous post about this from way back in 2017, but was hoping to get some more up to date thoughts on the topic Has/ does anyone loft a flapper in the trees when they go roost shooting. Seems like it would be a brilliant way to focus the incoming birds on a specific location of the wood. Only issue in my head would be the weight of the flapper and dead bird at 30ft ! (would run a cable extension down from flapper to battery on floor)
  2. Hi after yesterdays success I decided to roost another wood, the wind direction was the same. I had a good afternoon and ended up with 25 pigeons picked, 1 crow, 2 squirrels and 2 pheasants picture attached.
  3. Had an early finish at work yesterday and with it being windy decided to go roost shooting. On arriving plenty of birds were showing and so went straight in the wood . A couple of hours of fun was had and I finished with 20 pigeon picked 1 crow 1 rabbit and a pheasant .
  4. Hi my name is Matt I am new to shooting, I have had my licence for about six months now. I have managed to get myself two pieces of land to shoot on. I have a few questions I would like answering, I have tryed searching the Internet but the adviceis either contradicting from one person to another or nonexistent. My first question is what kind of land should i be shooting on? And what can I expect to find in the Midlands? (The first pieces of land I have is two fields which I think the farmer is growing corn. The crop is about 4 inch high. The second is some feilds surrounding a farm which I think the farmer is also growing crops but also has cattle so there is some grass and recently one of his feilds he scraped one of his feild with these chains I did see pigeons there.) Should I be using callers? Flight lines I no what they are but what do they look like? Should I expect one pigeon every minute or five an hour or coming flying in groups. I find researching this one particularly hard to research everybody seems just to explain what they mean to the pigeons and how they use them. Where can I find roosts? Is it in big woods, small woods, small groups of tree's, can I expect 10s or just a couple of pigeons? Should I buy flappers and other equipment? I have a hide net and 12 FUD decoys so far was also thinking of buying some crows as well to add a bit of variety to my pattern as I see this as I first get to the feilds. Also I would like to ask if there is any experienced shoots who would like some help out in the field in exchange for some advice, not only on where to find them but how to shoot them its just not the same as clays. Thanks to everyone who reads this or replies. I know I have woffled on abit. Matt
