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.

    '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.

    Went out a bit late this morning to see if i could bag a couple of bunnies for the pot, never even saw one (very rare on my permission) but I saw two Green Woodpeckers, two Buzzards, three Jays and best of all a Kingfisher! there were lots of the usual Goldfinches, Blue Tits etc but it just proves that even if we don't take a shot the countryside is bursting with wonderful things, this sport of ours really does take some beating.

    Agreed - It's all about wild life for me, shooting is just the icing on the cake.

    Never see any rabbits on the farm in middle of the day either. Only early morning as daylight breaks or last hour just before dark. At the moment I haven't been out since Sunday because Autumn/Winter has decided to start down here and it's been raining something awful. Rest of week set to be the same according to BBC Weather website, and though they often get it badly wrong, this time I think they're bang on the nail :(. Rain so heavy it would be difficult to see the rabbits even if they were daft enough to come out in it. I may ask my mate if I can shoot indoors in the 40-50 yard barn as I did last time we had bad weather. So nice and dry in there. Hey, targets are better than nothing after days of no shooting right? :)

    There is plenty of rabbits on my shoot but not enough to be panicking about unless we have a really mild winter, i spend most of my time with my binoculars just enjoying the birds and stuff going about thier day to day bussiness.I get as much enjoyment from just being a part of it as i do shooting.
