I would like to warn shooters that some land owners are cashing on shooting. A very good friend of mine has been helping a farmer and shot loads of rabbits to save his corn. Then caught all his moles to save the damage to his silage.
The Farmer said that the guy that used to have the shooting has not been for over a year. So if he keeped the vermin under control he can have the deer stalkng and the bird shooting on his own. One day he had seen pigeons on the corn so called the farmer to say i will be shooting them tomorrow.Well the farmer says there is some boys coming saturday to shoot them. He now finds that this farmer gets work done by plumers, sparkies. carpenters all come do some work for the shooting then find out someone else is also shooting there. I now get the shooting rights signed up so we know where we stand. The barter system is ok but be warned .
Please let us know if you have any stories about land owners taking us for a ride.
