On our small walk stand shoot yesterday we were shooting a wood about 250yds from a road when one of the lads noticed a blue pickup stop to watch on the road during the drive two pheasents hard hit glided down to drop 80yds from the road.
man in pickup let out a black lab two quick retrieves and drives off before anyone could go retieve our own birds
Later in the pub lads from next shoot along same road came in and we all were having a chat and they had lost some birds out of a landy about the same time
Pity some feel the need to steal birds when theyre only worth 90p
daft part of it is if he (man in pickup) came and introduced himself he may have been paid to pick up on either shoot enjoyed a day working his dog and been given a brace anyway
