  2. Hello all. I'm new to pigeon Watch and just trying to navigate through the site on this phone... 🤦🏼‍♂️ Here's a little about me. My name is Adam, 33, married, I have a dog, no kids, I work in the a Dementia specialist care home. I love the country, dogs, camping, shooting, motorcycles, metal detecting, photography & my truck! I have been shooting for about a year, and would really like to get into Decoying! I have had the idea of starting decoying since just after I started shooting, but finding my own permissions have been challenging, as I'm sure your all aware.
  3. Hello all. I'm hoping to be able to find someone I can go decoying with. I'll start with a short'ish intro as I'm new here.

  5. For the 1st time, sugar beet is going to be grown on one of my permissions. Should I become excited? If so, at what stage of the growing cycle? Will they go for it when drilled. sprouting, harvested or not at all?? I have no idea on what to hope for, except there was some last year on the next farm, as I see chunks of beet on the surface after harvest, with no interest being shown. I hadn't spotted it at drilling time so don't know if it was attacked then. Should I buy a few flats of ammo??? Cheers, Kitchrat

  11. This was last Sunday, my shooting was still off but we got a pretty good bag. In Hindsight we definitely should have had the decoys and magnet ten yards closer.
  12. It poured down with rain as we were about to set-up, and then after that it was quiet for an hour or so. Towards lunchtime the Crows started coming in. Hope you enjoy the footage

  14. Tried out the fresh pea drilling this weekend found the birds were not keen to decoy and shot most flying over the pattern. Not sure why the birds won't decoy as they usually will this time of year ? Picked up 20 and pricked a few more Hope to get a few more when they start to sprout..... Not a big bag but nice to get out and be in the fresh spring air ! Had a few Deer creep up on me too.....
  15. Caveat: new to pigeon shooting so please bear in mind - no advice will be too basic My permission is a smallish cattle farm with some woods and mainly pasture. I have identified a flightline across the fields and set a hide and decoys as per the general advice (pattern, wind direction etc) but nothing. I assume that this is because of two possible reasons: 1) They would not generally feed on these fields so it would be unnatural for them to come down irrespective of the decoys. I have read that some people have had some success decoying on pasture......?? 2) The flightline seem
  16. Hi, Myself and a friend are looking for some pigeon shooting in the Surrey and surrounding areas. We are both very experienced shots and have been shooting for 10+ years. We hold shotgun and firearms licenses along with BASC insurance. We also have trained gun dogs for pickups and we always leave land as it was before we arrived. We are happy enough to pay for this privilege so if you have any suitable land please get in touch. Many thanks, Simon

  20. I have done a bit of decoying before but only ever with static decoys. Now the opportunity has come up that i will be able to do some more especially over winter on oil seed rape etc. I am looking to buy either a flapper or a rotary decoy as with so much 'food' around for the pigeon, I expect I will need movement to bring them in. Could you please help me with this decision. Giving reasons for each and where you can buy good ones that don't cost an arm and a leg....... Any other advice on shooting pigeons over oil seed rape in winter would also be very helpful!!! Many than

  23. Hello all, I have a friendly family farm on the outskirts of Leicester, for the last year or so I have been renting out our shepherds hut to pigeon shooters. If anyone is interested then let me know. The concept is flexible, but what works well is for the shooters to arrive in the afternoon before the shoot day, so I can show you around the farm and point out some good spots. We can then use the quad to stash the decoying equipment into the hedge next to the chosen spot. Then after a couple of pints in the dog and gun you get a good nights sleep in the shepherds hut, get up ridicul
