1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I bobbed out late tonight around 7 ish, I grabbed the Regal and some FTT trophys, and off I went on a patch I haven't been on for around a year as its overlooked by some houses, so shotgun is out off the question.

    Thing is with all these gardens full of bird feeders its usually a really good field for woodies and crows but they just were not on it tonight they kept their distance but It was a lovely night and I just relaxed in a little copse of trees in the middle of the field, nothing serious didn't expect much to be honest, just enjoy a bit of a plink sometimes and if anything appears then, you know.

    Anyway I watched a sparrow hawk mobbing a squirrel at the other side of the field through the scope when something caught my eye, two foxes appeared in a corner and came straight towards me so I just layed low, and got some snaps.

    I watched them for a while as they played in the sunshine and sniffed around, so after I got the pics I squeaked them, and they both instantly came up the field edge towards me and stopped 10ft from my hide both staring straight into my eyes, obviously I had no intention of shooting them.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Shortly after a pigeon landed about 40 yrds and with a dead steady aim I took a head shot and it did the characteristic backwards cartwheels, just nerves.[​IMG]

    A few followed the Daystate proving its worth to me, with these pellets its a real performer, and as the sun dropped so did the wind so I pushed the boundaries right out to 100 yrds, and with a full mag I connect with a lump of mud no bigger than a couple of inches, not that I would do anything but plink at this range but it sure inspires the confidence up to around 50 yrds or so, it really isn't a big ask In the right conditions.

    So as the sun dropped I snapped another pic of the rifle in my little patch of paradise once again.:up:[​IMG]

    Great write up mate.

    I'm lucky that a golf course I shoot on has some interesting visitors that I can watch whilst sat waiting for the bunnies. Many an early morning or evening I've seen buzzards and other hawks, herons, foxes and even a couple of badgers (frighteningly big b*****s!).

    Nice write up, proves once again that bag size isn't important, it's all about just being out there.
    Some days I don't even take a shot, just sit and let the mad world go by.
    Regards
    Tim
