    Views from't Norf

    Not my ground but I stalk as a guest regularly wonderful place.

    Another view

    This is one of my favourite places at sunrise

    Another favourite place

    Something different - I enter a few "specialist shooting" competitions abroad on a fairly frequent basis, this is a view from two years ago of the range area

    That beautiful, Redmist. A lovely patch. Whereabouts is it? Southern uplands?

    Photgraph 3 shows a small "hillock" called Ingleborough in the background quite famous for the Pendle Witches or the Three Peaks (depending on what floats the boat)

    Photos 1, 2 and 4 are from the south Cumbria area.

    Last pic is from a place called Strelana just inside Slovakia - absolutely stunning scenery there.

    Yes that is a real MIG jet fighter to the right of the targetry.

    I was thinking it would change the point of impact.

    it was a particually sunny afternoon and you know how shiny barrels glint in reflected light - hence the cover material.

    I was in that spot for a few hours.


    no it does not affect impact point over stalking distances.

    Andrew i know of late you have had plenty of experience of talking out of your arse but it wont wash with me.
    In Fact if i were the guide/Ghillie on that outing you`d of had a slap on the back of the head and sent back to the car for that silly prat performance.
    I can just imagine the like`s of Mr Snowden over looking the action`s of clients such as yourself..
    Very suspect in my opinion but speaks volumes for your personal attitude towards hunting in general..

    Merry Christmas..

    Merry Christmas to you too Vim. If you're the same Vim as used to post on UKV I expect your posts to decline in quality from hereon in. If you're not then you do a good impression. If I may make a suggestion to the moderators:

    Ban this guy right now. Don't wait for the slanging matches that his posts will generate among the moderate and respectful forum that this site generally is.

    If I've got you wrong and this post was a temporary abberration then please accept my apologies. I doubt it though.

    If you were or (god forbid) are a gillie or a guide then I pity your clients.

    This sport can do without the likes of you.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    I applaud your wishes to have a smooth running site. However if you wish to make suggestions or offer advice to the admin team then may I suggest that you do it via a pm. I think you will agree that for a post that is meant to foster good relations then yours itself is a little inflammatory.

    I'm sure you meant it with good intent but I think your reaction is a bit kneejerk. As you know we have in the past and no doubt in the future will ban people from the site, for whatever reason. The thing is though they have to have done something to earn this ban.
