Apparently on this shoot where the came from there is a £70 find for shooting them so somebody out of pocket I asked owner who gave them me did the gun/guns pay up he walked of saying no body owned up who shot them.

I have the tails for tying daddy long legs as much longer to handle

Skin them and freez them, you can keep going back for feathers them.

Nice to see a bit of variety on a shoot, reeves, them golden ones or white pheasants. Also flying turkey's and guinea fowl.

Puts some guns right off there game looking at this strange bird 😂

Awful birds, the cocks will command a pen and drive every other bird away.... I know from experience and I gave all my guns full permission to shoot every one  even if it was 'ground game'.

The tails do make excellent legs both both Daddies and Mayflies, in partiular those semi submerged with the legs dragging behind a bit, when an occasional twicth will result in a crashing take.  Whilst on the subject anyone wanting squirrel tails speak up. I have some very nice ones at the moment.   I have never found a use for any of the other feathers.
