A day on the rape

Recommended Posts

Hi all set up yesterday morning for 1030 on some well hammered oil seed rape .10 dead birds out of the freezer 2 on the whirly and one on the bouncer wind blowing a huley west to east .Pigeons started to take interest after been in the hide about 10 minutes first one down and a steady flow of birds kept comeing from the woods just below where I was set up  no big flocks small groups and singles got my first ever 2with one shot and sadly missed the 3rd a couple of left and right and also a few easy bird misses the wind was a big factor driving the birds low but fast but a great day packed up 430 with 38 picked and 4 lost down in the woods pigeons and 1 crow rape starting to jump now with a bit of warm weather so not many more trips until the harvest

Great effort, a shame it was spoilt but I guess that’s shooting and no doubt they where just trying to enjoy their day too. The osr is starting to show yellow heads in Essex too.

Good report and glad you got a nice lot of shooting , well worth keeping an eye on the growing rape for areas that were waterlogged in the Winter months , these poor growing plots can produce some good sport as the pigeons tend to leave the tall plants and head towards the backward plants. MM .
