I set up twice this weekend on rape  and carried  all my kit 24 half shells 3 dead birds 2 batteries flapper and magnet plus net n poles etc  but was thinking is it worth just taking the magnet and 2  dead birds as That all they can really see as it’s quite high

cheers

Rotary plus two dead birds is all that is needed. No flapper with battery and no static decoys.

hello, you could try 2 bouncers, less shells, couple whole body all on longer sticks, shoot first 2 to go on bouncer, i have to wait until barley is turning this year so cannot see much shooting until July

If the rape is that high, your next problem is finding your shot birds, but as JDog said, travel light.

I was selective of what I shot At   but had a couple I couldn’t find

This is often all that is required.

Jacko, if I have any kind of walk with the kit, this is the tactic I adopt. I have had many 100+ and 200+ days starting with only 2 dead birds on the magnet. This is not just on tall crops, either.

Yes, **** law says that the birds are normally feeding on bare patches that are at the farthest point away from your motor, it pays to travel light, static decoys are just extra deadweight to carry.
