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.

    '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.

    This chaps only gone and done it :D after many weeks of calling around local land owners & farms to which are all either taken already or anti air gun fans "due to irresponsible previous shooters" I got lucky :D me and a bud of mine had a trip out this morning but adventured further a field only to be getting all the same old responses as previous perm hunts did :(
    after an hour or so of back roads scouting for farms we stumbled upon a little chicken farm "the day had not been good so far so I didn't hold my hopes up on getting a result from this one..." Any way after a polite knock on the door a woman come out to which I introduced my self and explained to her why I was there she says Oh my fella will be free in a min if you would like to wait? he's just on the phone I said sure am happy to wait :) any ways he comes to the door I introduce my self again and tell him my intentions whilst asking about any pest/vermin issues & that I would love to help him out with them! well i'll be damned this guy was a perm hunters wet dream! right away he's telling me they have rats, woodies, crows, magpies, rabbits & pheasants! followed by can you start tonight? "well at this point I am smiling from ear to ear! haha" it was an amazing feeling/buzz getting this kind of response after all the previous knock backs from other farms.. Damn chuffed!!!

    After further chatting about his terms and conditions it turns out he had 2 chaps that used to keep check on the pests for him but they lived in Newcastle so with it being so far they lost interest and hardly showed up... well thanks to them I am now one happy hunter with a my own perm! it will also give me a chance to test out my new R8 properly :) :) ;) roll on 5pm for my first trip!

    If the farmer will give out a permission slip or letter. Many would rather not as they can be faked.
    If everyone knows the farmer never gives permission slips people won't accept a slip at face value but instead will ring the farmer if they are suspicious.

    Well done on the permission if the farmer wants to give out a slip then fine, if not don't push it.
    Cheers Andy

    I always phrase it as 'if you don't mind...' then its their decision and you're not pushing as Andy says.

    I couldn't see him not given me a slip considering the happy response I got when I asked him if he would allow me to shoot vermin on his land, to be honest he was as happy as I was! as I said above he had 2 guys that used to shoot for him but they haven't shown up in a whilst due to them travelling from Newcastle to his property.

    Just got back in after a run up the new perm, when we arrived there was arond 200 geese flying over us squarking nice and loud! Turned out there is a huge pond not to far which they all nest/settle at... Farmer said there is a 1000 or more! And judging by the amount that flew over all the time we was there he's not wrong!! Haha.
    So any ways we had a good walk around the land with the guns checking out the good hide spots with good vantage points, also got some good info from the land owner on where the rabbits like to come out and feed so that's noted down for the next trip :) as for the woodies/crows we did spot the odd few but with all the geese passing over they just didn't seem to settle long enough to take a shot... Has any one else had this happen or noticed the flocking geese flying over head with the noisey squarks causing the pigeons or crows to b****r off as quick as they land or is it just me?
    After a further scout around it started to come in dark and with nothing in sight we ended up having a competitive plink before setting off back past the chicken huts back to the car only to stumble upon 2 rabbits sat near the 4x4 haha! All the time us 2 sat around other side of field these 2 rabbits had been feeding near the 4x4... Typical any how its was kinda dark with poor visibility through scope so I didn't feel like taking the shot but next time I will be taking the torch ;) and I will be taking the shot :D

    I bet you could have kissed him :eek: when he said yes.Don't forget to show your appreciation this christmas( a bottle of something may be) and if you intend on taking someone with you on one of your shooting days just get the okay from him first.

    Its hard to describe it! After a morning of driven around back roads getting knock backs from already claimed perms and owners that didn't welcome air guns on their lands to hear a yes you are welcome followed by a list of vermin he wants controlling gave me a right buzz/adrenaline rush! And ofc a bottle of JD as a thank you will be headed his way soon :)
