Nearly take. Out by a goose.

Up at 0300 for early fighting on geese. First birds in and my semi started to miss fire. Swapped to a lovely S Pigeon. Set up for a pair and the first one dropped on me. I had to dive for cover as it ploughed into my bag, chair and ammo in the standing corn. It was a close call.

Managed my first pair of spur wings (with a o/u a few minutes later.

Not the nicest looking geese in the first photo , but looks are only skin deep as they used to say , did you manage to try one for taste ?

The Egyptian are prettty nut Amy Co.ing down on .engine at that speed needs to be avoided. Apparently they fly at over 100kph.

Yeah! Egyptians are like teal geese compared to big, lumbering Spur-wings.

I knew a gamekeeper who was knocked out cold by a falling pink foot. He was found when he failed to return home for his breakfast, still unconscious !

Lucky to only be knocked out. Thus thing fell from 40m up and weighs a few kilo it would be like a punch from Tyson.

Looks like you're getting some cracking shooting grant .

It's been a great tour. Even though I lost my hog. Shot just under 3000 carts for tge week, just shy of 500 yesterday on the doves. Waterfowl could have been better as the peanut farms were a good trek in the mornings but no complaints.

Pic below is a hog we collected. The one I lost was even bigger but I tell myself that's hunting.

That's some cracking going grant.

Do the hogs get eaten ?. I'll eat pretty much anything, but those hogs always look like they'll taste like mud .

Warthog is actually very good eating.

They just look a bit uurrgggh. Mind you , I happily eat squirrels and snails , and probably plenty of other things that most people wouldn't fancy.

I'm feeling the need to try warthog now .
