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.

  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.

    Alright all. Got myself a trail camera. The idea being that I fancy doing some foxing but dont know which farm to start on. I won't have a .17 for a few months, so in that time I plan to place the trail camera in a few choice locations on each farm and see which ones charlie visits most often or most predictably.

    I baited with a dead rabbit opened up and pinned to the ground with a peg. The below pics are what was captured this week. Something managed to take the rabbit in between photos. Think I need to play with the settings a bit or maybe just set it to video mode next time.

    This first one seems to be someones dog, just before he nicked the bait i think.

    PICT0007.jpg
    A random squirrel.

    This is the money shot! By this time the bait had gone. As this was the only pic of him all week, I am guessing that this isnt a normal roaming trail. I can only assume that it was the smell of the rabbit guts on the ground which brought him in.

    Mine has been out on another permission all week. Ive got it covering a warren which seems to have what looks like a fox trail going straight over it in to the next field. I will go and collect it on Saturday and see whats been going on. With a bit of luck it will have captured another fox but if nothing else it will tell me how populated the warren is.

    I may have to get one of these when I've sold a few bits and pieces. I'm very impressed with the quality of the pictures, I have to say. Do they come with their own IR illuminators / are they genuine NV?

    Yes mate they come with IR built in. Good for 20 yards I would say. The camera I got for £160 is 6 mega pixel. You can get them at 10 or 12 mega pixel but they are alot more expensive. I figured that 6mp is more than clear enough to see and identify the quarry so why spend more?

    Mine is just a £ 49 marlin job. No ir just a normal flash. Worth considering if you think someone may steal or damage it. Cheers Andy

    Cracking bits of kit. Love the pictures and videos you've all caught! Really considering one now just for general interest other than anything else. I thought they were something only BBC film crews could get hold of tbh!
