Wheat drillings.

Recommended Posts

Had an afternoon on newly drilled wheat field today with mate Terry.I didnt know what would happen as fields have rapidly gone fron stubbles to sown over the last week,although birds had been there on the stubbles.We were set up by 1pm,2 hides 70 yds apart with a hedge behind us & the wind and sun from behind us.We had a great afternoon with some good sporty birds which decoyed pretty well despite having been harrassed locally since the beginning of harvest ! Picked 51 for a 3:1 ratio between us but both talked of the ones that got away when we finished!!!

Probably our last day on drillings but most enjoyable .Sorry no pics ,as I'm having to use a tablet atm!

Drillings must be less attractive if put in with up to date eqpt,the field we were shooting had very little seed left uncovered which has to narrow the window for pigeons!

Forgot to include...we started with 6 full bodied and 2 shells on DenysDippas which worked just fine,then added shot birds in  a dozen cradles as things progressed!

Dippas are great. Do a brilliant job.😁 I've got drillings now, a new crop under wheat stubble. A good number of birds about but I think they are eating the uncovered wheat grains and not what has been sewn.

Most of ours seem to have returned to wheat stubbles now as there is very little seed left uncovered this year ,due to perfect drilling conditions!
