well the wife came home early today so i thought id take the opportunity to take a quick trip to a few local farms and enquire about the possibility of obtaining a bit of rabbit shooting.
the first 2 farmers where really nice friendly old timers, the first fella has someone already shooting his land but he would give him a call and see what he says about sharing, told him not to worry it's ok (don't like standing on peoples toes), so he pointed me in the direction of the neighbouring farm and told me to tell him that he had sent me. Again hell of a nice fella invited me in and offered me a cup of Tea, started talking and he said he has someone shooting also but the guy was due to go abroad for a while in the summer, So he took my number and said he would give me a phone when it becomes available. So happy as a pig in P##h i headed off.
On my route home i noticed a farm a bit further back from the road surrounded by fields of livestock cows, sheep usual, so i thought id give it a shot, i mean what's the worst that could happen right? he could say no, fair enough. Well holy s##t balls, did he no just rant about how he's fed up with us southern boys coming up here for free shooting and taking work away from locals (just to clarify i do have a slight southern accent) he then started ranting about the referendum and how peace will be returned. at this point i just interrupted him and said "that will be a no then, look really sorry to have bothered you, have a good day". i started walking to my van i could still hear him ranting. so i jumped in and drove away.
just goes to show how different some people can be from the nicest 2 fellas you could ever meet to well whatever that was. kind of put a dampener on the 2 previous farms but hey ho..
