    Took the young fellas out for a quick evening shoot and got a swan. They were pretty happy.

    No bugger is shooting in our district to keep the birds moving.I don't get home from work till 1730hrs sometimes later.Last two nights hooned to a couple local ponds and no birds seen or heard at each pond. Shot a couple pigeons while at the river during the day but couldn't retreive them as they fell in and it was bloody swift.Got 4 weeks left in the Wellington region.

    @Dundee same for us opening. We had a cracker but there wasn't really that many out going by the shooting.
    Just as well I had a good one-doubt I'll get out again in Canterbury.

    Cheers. It's on our place and been 40 yrs in the making. Always produces something, but has been attracting some attention lately by trespassers.

    And I still haven't pulled the trigger yet. To slow and the boy is beating me to the bird. Next week.....

    Summer looks to be finally here in the UK had a spare afternoon yesterday so took my next door neighbour out for a crack at the local Pegion population. Haven’t been out all year due to work load
    Bill doesn’t get out much either as his wife Has Alzheimer’s so he’s her full time carer. But his kids were visiting so he got a free pass
    Started around 2pm and finished up at 7pm.
    I set us up in a beech hedge standing back to back so we could call the out what was in coming to each other.
    If you cocked the shot up our the bird went just out of range put was vectoring into Bills position then he could have a crack and vice versa. Some of the language was a bit ripe as we missed a few sitters, but good fun all round.
    I even managed to get two left right crosses and one really long range crossing screamer that was paced out at 51strides.
    41 picked and a few in the hedges that we could not get.
    Best laugh of the day was Bills call of “Incomer straight going over you”! Bang! Im looking up for the bird and it hits me clean in the back of the head
