  1. I mentioned in a previous thread that Muncher (Jules) was to take me out on a drilled field today. He passed the field yesterday after collecting some cartridges. It turned out to be spring wheat that had attracted hundreds of pigeons and corvids. We arrived at our destination this morning with the sun shining brightly and a gentle breeze blowing. Crows circled the whole time we were setting up. We laid out a pattern to attract both the pigeons and the blacks, and we were confident of killing a few. The sky early on was devoid of pigeons, but the crows certainly kept us entertained. They just kept coming, and decoyed as well as I have ever known them to. I thought that they might be wary or get spooked - especially as I kept popping my head up to do some filming - but they didn't. The pigeons eventually made their appearance, and kept coming in dribs and drabs. On reflection, we probably missed out on getting a proper bag of pigeons, by being a day late. We kept taking on anything that came into range and had some very fine and highly enjoyable sport. Any doubters of steel shot cartridges capabilities would have been surprised at some of the long range kills we had. Thanks again, Jules, for a good day out - well worth the day off work! The final bag was 40 pigeons, 46 rooks, 18 crows and 14 jackdaws.
  2. So I went out this morning with the over and under for a very quick mooch about before the GF wanted to head off to town I popped out the back door and took the first rook out of a nice high beech tree, the other couple took to the air and the next was soon to hit the ground, 2 shots, 2 rooks. The thud of one hitting the shed roof was welcoming as some parts are covered with Perspex sheets, the rest of the day would've been spent fixing it!! I walked off into the field to try and get a better position on the rooks flightline next door, but enroute i saw and took a nice chunky hen pheasant. (This years are still a wee bit too small for my liking). As time was now moving along it was probably best that I made my way back; about to walk around the side of the house, mr rook No3 came in high and straight. Missed with the first, led a tad with the second and yet another thud of a different shed!! A "hair cut, brisket joint and some bones for the dog" later, I tried my luck again, took the next crow from the same high tree as the first. With no sight of any more corvid friends nearby I had to broaden my search and walk to another permission I have, just a 300m walk down the road to a farm shed where they usually sit about. For reference, these roads are in the middle of no where, very rural and rarely and cars use it, single track etc. About 30m before the farm lane i hear a car pull out of the turning behind and stops, reverses and then drives my way. I turn around and it's the blues and twos. I'm the most straight up kinda guy but it put the fear of god into me when your looking at a police officer holding a 12ga!!!! He asked to see my licence and checked it over thoroughly before asking what I was shooting, I said that I was shooting rooks as they were causing damage to the farmers crops where I was heading and they effect the lambs. He said that it needs to be classed as significant crop damage etc to be allowed. He checked the ammo I was using making sure it was modified into slugs or anything suspicious. Turns out he's working closely with the Environment Agency in a current join operation to catch poachers in the area. I tried to help as much as I could and pointed him in the right direction of where they usually operate and we ended on a good note. He did say i really should put it in a sling whilst carrying it on the road, which im definately going to do now!! Just a tad scary when he pulled up at first, having never been stopped before, for anything by a police officer!!! I returned home after a fruitless session at the farm shed and walked up through the small wood next door. A few squirrels later and as darkness approached it was time to call it a day. 4 rooks, 3 squirrels, 1 pheasant, and a police interrogation later it's been a good mixed bag!! Happy hunting

  6. Fenboy met me last evening at about 7pm and we set off down to a resevoir which has been having geese come in on the evening. For a while we thought they were not coming in and we saw a barn owl above us watching this we did not see 4 geese until late but managed to drop 1 then for ten minutes it went mad with about 300 geese coming in we eventually shot 6 greylag and finished up it was a fantastic flight.After we had a drive around for rabbitt but that was hard work only shooting 5 in the wind. Today I dropped the kids off at school and shoot pigeon for a few hours on wheat stubble with Fenboy we ended up with 20 .woodies overall a good last 24 hours have really enjoyed Fenboys company so pleased he had a great flight last night cheers Fenny
