Thread: Wldfowl season

  1. #1

    Wldfowl season

    Are any of you guys out tomorrow after a quacker or a honker?....If so don't forget they've had a poor breeding season (round here anyway) and those young flappers will be as green as grass, give them a chance and in a couple of months they will be good sporting birds you will remember shooting not easy bag fillers you don't!!.....good hunting!!.

    I'm going to leave them alone until October I think. It only really kicks off when the migratory wildfowl arrive anyway.

    Just had a call from my mate to remind me to be at his for 5.30am for the first ducks of the season. Bring it on!
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    I always loved the 1st!!!! Never shot though just watched I prefered my geese a bit more wiser and alot less like powder puffs.

    seen my first skien of pinks yesterday! they are about a week earlyer then last year just a small bunch of a dozen.
    dont like shooting ducks untill oct as a few frost help push full winter plumage through so as when dressing the ducks they pluck easier and dont look like hedgehogs with all the pen feathers+ they have a nice little bit of fat on them and makes them that little bit tastier.
    got over 150 feeding on one pond been feeding it for a month get them really keen on it then have a decent night when the weather and moon is right!

    Im just waiting on my shotgun license coming through, hopefully won't be too much longer as its been away just over a month. Are there any people on here near Edinburgh who wouldn't mind showing a newbie the ropes of fowling? I've got experience with other shooting just not this.

    great photos
    used to love the first day of duck shooting that was when I was in a syndicate and had a long stretch of the chelmer to walk them up and if we were lucky the geese would come through.

    I have seen more duck this year than for decades. In the Borders 50+ on a pond in a middle of what should have been a barley field. Double figures on my flight pond (still as yet unfed) as its a marsh getting close to it will need waders. Saw lots flighting over the last week. Even saw a couple on a tiny puddle in the middle of a combined wheat field on Sunday.
