Thread: Time for the Ditch Seat

    Time for the Ditch Seat

    The heavy rain this morning was not very inviting, however it did finally stop....
    A quick trip along the headland track showed me there was enough for a shoot...
    As it is just drilled ground I let the dog rest until a pick up later, where I wanted to shot was the opposite side I set up but a nest of 3 new houses made me pick the spot it did. The distance was safe but perceived distance on a Sunday and new people who have moved to the country side is never a guarantee for complaints..

    I set up to shoot across the wind as not to rattle a small holding wood near by, the ditch was dry so I took my

    " Ditch Seat" this one is my proto type from a very shot run a made up some time ago, short legs at the back long legs at the front with a little adjustment as well. works a treat for this situation.

    The shooting started right away with 22 straight falling all over the place, I got to 40 then had pulled in all my plastic decoys and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon...

    A good shot ratio 92 for 112 shots! After I cleared up I drove the short trip home to pick up the dog, Chip found 12 in the ditches which this year have not been flailed.

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    The more times you go, there is always a chance of going home with one

    Thank you, as a shot gun user you know how important feet position is, that seat leaves you enough room so when you get off it then your lead foot is not half way up the bank...
