A few bags over rape


Recommended Posts

I’ve had a cracking winter this year over winter rape, I’ve had big flocks from very early on hitting the crop giving me some great shooting. We usually get good amounts of pigeon every year but this year has seen us with more than I’ve known for a long time.

They are some very big bags of Pigeons B B and you have certainly had a good Winter , down this way we might manage the odd three figure bag but that would be a one off , up until the end of January we saw well below the numbers we would normally expect to see , then from the second week in February they arrived in good numbers more or less overnight , we have got a lot of Rape fields in the area with seven fields on the estate where I shoot and several on the surrounding farms so getting a big bag is always going to be hard .

Glad you are getting plenty of sport and are you managing to offload them now that things are picking up a bit ?

Yes all my birds get moved on generally the same day I shoot

Very impressive BB - some cracking bags and you have enjoyed some great sport while doing crop protection for your farmer friends.

I have a theory that the lockdown of March 2022 gave the pigeons an opportunity to boast their population and we are seeing many more in certain areas.

I hope your success continues.
