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
Hi all, Currently trying to look for a permission, tried door knocking, letters etc but no luck. In the mean time I thought I would offer my help on here: holding lamps, beating, extra gun on trip out, Perfect would be if someone replied and said that "yeah I need help sorting out my woodies!" but know that's unlikely to happen. I'm a 33 year old, responsible guy, I shoot with an air rifle. I will of course make sure I sort insurance out if anyone invites me out shooting with them. I work shifts so can be available at all sorts of different times...though I am going to be in north wales for the next 2 weeks but can arrange after that. I live in Nottingham but can travel within the E. Midlands Jacob
