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.

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.

    Not had much experience on lamping other than for 10/15 minutes tonight as I was leaving. Do u switch ur light on when u see movement or leave lamp on as ur walking/stalking the area:confused: ( surely this will empty ur battery quicker ).
    Going again tomorrow night so any advise would be appreciated.

    Hi, I find the best thing to do is scan the immediate area ahead to see if you can detect any rabbits/foxes etc and plan on how to get there. Turn the torch off and stalk upto where your ideal shooting position would be, scanning every so often to make sure its still there (depending on how far it is, I usually have a check scan every 30 yards or so but I've not really perfected this yet) Then once in position locate the animal, judge if you are in range etc and take the shot.

    I've found the less I have the torch on the better in general.

    As above scan, switch off, stalk, scan, untill within range.

    May I suggest that as a novice with the lamp put out some targets around a field before dark. Then go back to them with the lamp and rifle when dark. Using the lamp do as above to see if you can hit them. I know it sounds daft but unless the lamp lights up the a large area you loose the perception of depth and distance. It's difficult to range at night and a little practice will increases your bag.

    Definatley as above! When I first started lamping I found that rabbits looked further away then they are.resulting in a couple of rabbits with pierced ears! So I done the above with targets.it took a while but once you get it you'll be right on!another tip is to buy some wooden kebab sticks and put reflective tape on them(quite long strips else they look like eyes shining back at you)and peg them out at 25 or 30yds also use any trees etc as range markers atb jw
