dont you just love starting a saturday morning with a ruck !
i went out this morning to check my rifle zero this morning on one of my local permissions , and after phoning the owner last night for clearance , i proceeded with harrygrey off here to get on with the job in hand .
after harry produced a cracking group with his 243 (at last !) the wanna be game keeper of the chase THE pheasant shoot , turned up ranting and raving and he right stuck the f$Łks into me about his pheasants all 15 of them in the pen and saying i shouldnt be up there shooting my rifle !
considering the first word he said to me was the F word , i thought thats it the gloves are off , and i didnt mince my p's and q's and gave the jumped up fat tosser 2 barrels of my best queens english and he didnt rate the fact i have written permission for every acre to shoot fox , deer and vermin and that really grates on him because im beyond his control because i answer to the land owner and only him !
i also told him the next time i see any foxes up there ill leave them be (shot 2 while stalking last week !) , considering neither the land owner of myself knew there birds in the pen (serious lack of communication), if i had had known i would have steered clear .
any way i called the owner to explain what had happened , he was fine so as far as im concearned as long as he's happy im happy !
im just now waiting for the next phone call to come and clear up the foxes !
this was completely avoidable if he had come over politly and voiced his concearn , then there would have been no problem .
this has put me in a ***** mood for the rest of the day now !
