Worcestershire

    Recommended Posts

    Hi guys and girls 

     

    bit of a long shot I know but thought I’d ask anyway. 
    After now having more free evening and weekends I’m looking for permission to shoot pigeons in the Worcestershire area. this is my first port of call so not expecting much but I have nothing to loose. 
    I have insurance and always a safety aware shot. 
     

    fingers crossed.

    Might help if you pin it down as Worcestershire covers a big area, maybe the first two letters and number, like WR6, WR10 or 9.

    Yeah fair point I’m ideally looking as close to Wr2 as possible but willing to travel with 30-45 mins if necessary.

    Have you done the usual knocking on doors in the area?

    I haven’t not yet. I was thinking of holding off until I see some fields being attack before hand and try and use that as an advantage.

    I know most of the surrounding countryside around that post code, you have got some good opportunities within  15-20 mile radius, although the further west you go there seems less pigeons, have some friends who live near Leominster, they are surrounded by farmland and lots of rape but you don’t see many pigeons on it, plenty of blacks out that way and game shoots.

    Yeah I was thinking there must be plenty opportunity fairly close by. The only problem I’m finding is actually finding the individual farms. I’m not originally from round here so google maps will becoming my best friend I feel.

    I see from your other posts you are training a lab, that could lead you into some picking up when she is trained, try and find a shoot near you and approach the keeper, tell him your intentions with the dog and offer to do some picking up when the dog is trained, also offer to do some beating for him, you near know if you become friendly with him he may just offer some help to bring the dog on, its surprising what can happen once you put yourself out there and get talking to the right people.

    Get some cards printed up and get knocking on doors. It’s a little awkward at first but you’ll get used to the rejections.......I certainly have 😂. My latest rejection was less than 6 hours ago. It’s a long road.
