Im not having any probs here in yorkshire got a call from one of my permissions yesterday the farmer said there were thousands hitting his only rape field all week .so grabbed my gear now the farmers tend to exagerate at times thousands mean hundreds in the past so i arrived with the image of maybe two hundred in my head. I couldnt believe how many they were they were cramned into every tree around the field the wood was full to bursting.then another five hundred or so got up out from the rape as i aproached.i was like a big kid.the birds didnt decoy at all tho but they kept using the same flight line to the field so packed the decoys away and got hid under the flight path it was non stop from 10 oclock till 4 pm total bag 187 birds and didnt even make a dint in the flock its gonna be a buissy month for me lol.

Are only a select few allowed to shoot decent bags on here then? Why lie about it because the only person your really cheating is yourself. Not everyone feels the need to photograph their days shooting. If he said he shot them around this area i might be a bit dubious because i don't think i have seen even a 100 in one place for at least a couple of months. But he's in Yorkshire and i haven't a clue what's up there so who am i to judge.

I take it we have a jelous person on here motty ah ah never mind youll get one or two maybe this year.ah ah

Not one bit jealous. The reason I don't believe you shot the bag is simple. A fortnight ago you posted that you couldn't get anything to decoy , but maybe you'd shoot quite a few in your roost wood. You later posted elsewhere that you'd already shot about 300 this month (?) . Sounds a bit odd doesn't it? You didn't mention on what crops you shot those 300 pigeons.

So if what you say is true, then you have shot around 500 pigeons already this year, when most people are struggling to make a half decent bag.

If you have shot all those birds then I doth my cap to you, but I seriously doubt it.

You also posted that I exaggerate, but failed to explain what you meant. Care to explain now?

Saw the first lot on rape yesterday on one of my fields. About 40-50. Clapped my hands. They lifted and went straight to the woods not to be seen again.

 

Freezer is empty and my pup is just ready to start picking up feather and nothing to shoot.

Would anyone be kind enough to invite me on my first pigeon shoot? I live in Lewes, East Sussex. I have shot clays and done some rough shooting this year I would love to get in to shooting pigeon and hope also to join Chichester wildfowlers.

 

Thanks

 

Joe

take a look on shooting available you may find some there
