Our little rough shoot

Recommended Posts

Evening all, I put an add out at the end of last season looking for some new recruits on our little rough shoot. The response was overwhelming, and after taking the first 3 guys out to scope our land, they took the plunge and decided to join us.

 

Fast forward a few months, past the hard work with the poults, and we're finally reaping some of the benefits. Although it's clear there is still some improvements to make!!

 

Here's a few shots from the first 2 days. Until Janraury, there's a bag limit of a brace a head. So I think we're doing ok so far.

 

'victorismyhero' and the first bag...

'shoot and be safe' and today's birds...

Me and the mut, waiting for the nod to push some more rushes through...

The wife was off work today, so she joined in the fun too!

Only managed a few pictures of today's shoot.

 

The fog rolled in as we made our way through the turnip field.

This is where I connected with a nice cock bird 40+yards out crossing left to right. 1 for 1. :yahoo:

 

As we made our way back to the cars we had one last area to push through. A small valley with steep banks either side. On approaching this area we flushed a small group of pheasants and this is where I connected with my second. 2 for 2 :yahoo: :yahoo:

 

This was my view from the bottom of the valley.

As already mentioned, a good day and the little dog even got to ride back in the cab on a heated seat.

Well done Todd and Co.

I'm glad to learn that the feeder drums and words of wisdom helped to produce the goods.

Looks a great little shoot and the woodland looks terrific very picturesque. Good to see all the hard work pays off in the end. You should be proud of yourself.

Really nice photos and write up I am trying to set up a mini shoot for me and a couple of friends on my permission I have had the go ahead from the farmer so it's all good.

So hopefully with lots of hard work I would hope to end up with a small version of your shoot

That's how pheasant shooting should be . You know that the birds will be eaten by the syndicate members . Birds shot for the pot . Super.

Any pic's of the rope swing in use :whistling:

 

 

That first bird was a belter, and a 100% kill ratio for you to! The Crown will never believe that :lol:

 

did he have a double discharge twice again :ninja:

 

Well done on what looks like a great small friendly shoot :good:

That probably explains his range-y bird, twice as much lead in the air, thus twice as likely to connect :whistling: Edited by Wildfowler12
