............,so like i said what happens if that bird flys say 120/130 yards across a field and then drops into the road


We all run that risk? I once received a piccie on my mobile from the farmer when a shot pigeon dropped in to his yard well away from where I was sitting.
But that is not the point of the discussion which was problems of sitting in a hedge with a road immediately behind that hedge not 100's of yds away.

If a pigeon flies on for a few hundred yards, it is most certainly not dead in the air.


Quite, perforated air sacs

so you`ve never hit pigeon/crow and watch that bird fly on for a distance before dropping,  the word FLIES on doesn`t mean it`s flapping it`s wings it`s taken a lung shot or head shot where the birds dead or die in and just floats on the wing before coming to ground,  last summer i shot a pigeon knew i hit him hard and watched him float across a 130 plus yards long field with out flapping his wings one before falling straight into a garden behind me, my point being not all birds drop where shoot

If a pigeon is gliding, it isn't dead.

you can shoot a min of 15 yards from a road, in theory you can actually shoot on someones boundary, away from their property, but it wouldn't be worth the hassle. I had a situation a few years ago, when someone approached me and made out they were off duty police telling me that I had to be a minimum of 50 yards from the road, I argued it for a bit, but gave up, as although I was in the right regarding legality, I could see they were agitated so decided to give it a wide berth.

 

sometimes its best just to get miles away from any possible conflict if you can. :good:

You can legally shoot next to a road.

We could argue this thread out till the cows come home , its really down to common sense and avoiding any conflict with anyone who it might annoy or endanger , or are you prepared to risk your S G C because according to the law you are in the right .

If they are not in, I would sit outside the boundary if best spot,

 

if in the house, 50 yards if they are warned, 100 yards if not.

I go for a 100 yards just in case, like I mentioned I'm using 410 hushpower and there house is sat back a good 20 from the boundary, its the only spot available under a very strong flightline on to some rape, fingers crossed for tommorow, thanks for all comments

Just be good neighbours keep a good lookout around you and don't scare people sunday walking along the other side of the fence, cars more likely to crash watching a person with a gun rather than having a bird fall on them

no, I dident ask, I was 99 per cent certain they were impersonating, because of their total lack of knowledge, I was fairly new to the permission, like everybody else, you try not to let things get silly, it was easy for me to move somewhere else and diffuse it totally, at the end of the day, a shotgun is bloody loud when you are near someones property, legal or not.
