  1. Cull Fees

    I had a 72 MGB sitting on my drive for a year. Wouldn't drive, rotten right through, had to get rid of it before the council told me to. The scrappy still gave me £100 for it. Same principle - even if somthing has to be done it doesn't mean it has no value. Most things are worth something to...
  2. Timed out etc.

    I run a forum, the software and server cost no more than £60 a year and that's the full blown business version with tons of storage and bandwidth. This sites always been like this, at least since I've been hanging around. I don't get problems on other forums, it's more likely a set up problem...
  3. Scone the DCS, FC, SACS, APDMG, BASC

    The people who came up with these proposals will have known from the start that it would upset stalkers. It is a side issue to them and will not deflect them one iota from their intentions. However, their objective is just that - to regulate stalkers, so while they will have anticipated...
  4. DCS Bill - YOUR HELP NEEDED

    David BASC, I think you have the patience of a Saint. I admire your professionalism in the face of some of the attacks you are subjected to. Ian Clark is to be commended for coming into the debate with a professional response. You have both avoided the confrontion between the two...
  5. Large Roe Liver

    It would! I know that in humans the liver can be part removed, e.g. for a live donor translpant, and it can grow back. It's a very interesting organ, only one type of cell but it does a thousand different jobs. This was hefty, but I've never shot a buck that old and wanted to know if it was...
  6. Large Roe Liver

    I shot a Roe Buck last night, I have been after him for a while as he's getting past his best to be honest and there are a few younger and better looking animals around. His anter points were worn, so he's been having a good go at the trees. The shot as 70 yards with a 243, the bullet took...
  7. Good news and bad

    If you dont mind me asking GH, where roughly are you in the borders and are there many Sika there?
  8. went to the doctors today...........

    Next tick I get I'll be off to my GP as well to give him a heads up on Lymes in case it turns into anyhthing - I'll be leaving him with a copy of Morena's article.

    I'm afraid you'll need to suck the remaining head parts out - can you reach? Do you have and stlker friends local to you who can help out ? :)
  10. Mincers

    Well, I'd love a £140 electric all singing all dancing mincer for my birthday, but my wife says that's not going to happen. I'll need to earn the right to buy one of those with some high quality burgers and sausages. But I do still want one. What are the £23-£30 hand powered metal ones...
  11. Scottish Shooting Bill

    The official stance of the BASC is that they are against it. David has said as much on here. However, I think Colin Sheddon (?) head of BASC Scotland was involved in the think tank that produced this, but I have heard nothing about any attempts to stop this from BASC at the early stages...
  12. Scottish Shooting Bill

    This has been awaited for some time. I'm going to read this in detail and put in a detailed response, because I am a stalker and a land owner in Scotland. Hidden in all the window dressing is the most insidious and repulsive apsect of proposals - that the government will have the final say on...
  13. Ticks and Lymes disease.

    Pleased they caught it quickly, I hope you have a speedy recovery.
  14. Ticks and Lymes disease.

    If you don't mind me asking Sikamalc, how quickly was it diagnosed and has that impacted on how treatment is going? Hope it goes well for you.
  15. Wild boar and effects on vegetation and other fauna

    In truth, I wouldn't mind one or two on my patch.
