Not many

Recommended Posts

Went out today to a field where there was a lot of birds about so set up where I thought was best at a about  1030 ( 12 half shells 3 home made crows a floater and a magnet with two dead birds) nothing seemed to be interested so a shuffle about with the pattern and In came 2 boom first one down second was off  as quick as I could move missed.. over the next 40  mins lots of bird on a flight line that where off to feed somewhere would not decoy and they was well out of range for my talent they where way too high as there was not much wind .. the wind picked up a little for the next hour and half had a dozen decoy in  mainly in pairs managed to get 4 more  and a crow by no means a great day but a good few hours out in the fresh air learning  out on the clay tomorrow for some practice

Thanks for posting. Time out in the field is never wasted. Last Sunday I was out as the sun rose and got exactly the same bag as you. It was one of the most pleasurable couple of hours out I have had and to cap it off I spotted another line that I plan to look at this morning.

keep the m coming.

No time out in the countryside is ever wasted , although we do say when we come home cold and wet with an empty bag . that was a waste of time :lol:.

You can only learn so much out of books or watching d v ds , every day is different out in the field and the old saying that you learn by your mistakes is bang on .

It don't matter how long you or I, and everyone else who go pigeon shooting never stop learning  , maybe the ones who have been doing it a bit longer can spot mistakes a bit sooner than yourself , but then again , they did make them in the first place:good:

At least you were out shooting, on those sort of days when I first started I would try all sorts of things and remember what worked. Well done and thanks for posting.

It's that feeling of when you try something for the first time, and you start to put together the things that work and it all starts to click into place. 

So satisfying even when you only get a couple birds.

experience is the teacher, log it in your memory banks for the future , and then you can put some of it to use, it might just turn the day to your favour.
