First time on bean stubble.


Recommended Posts

This is a new permission for me obtained only on Wednesday when I saw pigeons on wheat stubble. It extends to 500 acres in a pigeonny area.

My companion picked me up at 12:15, a ten minute drive and we were watching soon after. The line in was obvious but the interesting thing is that very few pigeons landed in the field straight away but circled once or twice before alighting.

The wind was odd, from the east and along the length of the hedge we chose to use. One set of decoys was very close in, the other 50m out.

We had some really great shooting at long birds flitting about. Not many came into the hole in the pattern

We, along with our wives, have been invited to a drinks party this evening so we packed up at 3pm after just less than two hours. We had a market for the birds and within twenty minutes of leaving the field 67 pigeons were in the chiller.

This was some of the best shooting we have had for a while.
