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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Having been fortunate enough to be allowed as a guest on Harry Browns 30 acre woodland perm I decided to pop over yesterday for a look around. As soon as I arrived I was greeted to the sight of 2 buzzards gracefully circling the wood and the sound of song birds from within. The margins of the wood were quite thick with brambles so a stealthy entry wasn't on the cards and several birds took flight before i'd made my way more than 10m. I proceded to spend an enjoyable 2 hours wondering through the woods enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, but now to the important part my bag for the day....

    Hi James,

    I missed this thread. I've just been up there myself having a look about. I saw a Muntjac creeping out of the rhododendrons as I approached a big thicket of them. Again squirrels and woodies. There are a couple of largish badger sets and fox dens. There's all sorts in there. A few decent sized Beech trees and of course the gingerbread mans old house! I didn't take a gun as I was supposed to be going elsewhere.

    Once you start getting a few kills in there, I have a nice rabbit perm you can have a go at over my way.

    I'd love a woodland perm, never had the chance to shoot in woodland (not yet anyway!) - Enjoy!

    We're about two hours from yourself, so if you fancy a long day out sometime, you'll be welcome to come have pop.

    a perm I used to shoot had a nice thick woodblock. I prefer it over shooting fields. squirrels don't sit still like rabbits!

    Like I said, just knock up a quick hide using some strawberry netting. I wouldn't move about much if you want to shoot anything in there. Leave the Jays please...I want a pop at those b*****s! ;)

    Part of my mates farm has about 120-150 acres of this stuff. Forestry and wild deciduous woodland. I think I may have walked about 20-25 acres of it so far. It "looks" like there should be lots of goodies hiding in there, and there probably are, but on the day I walked that 20-25 acres, all I saw and heard were either a deafening, (but wonderfully peaceful) silence, or the non-stop noise of very small birds like wrens, tit family, tree creepers, nuthatches etc. So I didn't walk the rest and came back out into rabbit, pigeon, crow and squirrel country instead :D. I will of course be going back for a look at some point and will probably cover it all eventually :).

    Andy :)
