  1. My first deer with 6mm Yew Tree 80.5gr non-toxic/copper

    I normally use (Marmite) 95gr SST homeloads in my 243Win, though I've previously had satisfactory results with 100gr Prohunter, Gameking and Speer BTSP. These latter bullets often didn't exit on larger fallow bucks, with separation of cup and core being common, though they did kill well enough...
  2. Young fox killed duck and fought my cats

    It's a steep learning curve being a juvenile fox. This one turned-up in our garden, with one of the farmer's lovely Harlequin ducks. It then fought with both our cats! Luckily the cats seem unharmed, though both are wired! I had to shoot it- I was convinced one of the cats was going...

  4. Farewell to my Dog

    Ianto died quite suddenly yesterday. He's been so fit over the 12years we were privileged to share with him. I'm glad his last moments were at home, with us by his side.
  5. Be aware: Lever-release v Lever-action!

    Lever-release v Lever-action I had a call from an FEO (S Wales Police) today. He explained that they had realised their database did not distinguish between lever-action (legal) and lever-release (imminently "illegal"). He wanted to check if any of my three lever-action rifles were actually...

  8. Tangled bucks in a garden

    [Edit: hot links for images seem to be broken at present. Hopefully the hosting server will recover.] Yesterday I got a call to deal with two fallow bucks tangled together in someone’s garden. One turned out to be dead already but the other was thrashing about intermittently and was able to...

  11. Relax: Government has downgraded Covid-19

    Covid-19 is no longer a "High Consequence Infectious Disease", according to the Government. Is this downgrading of COVID-19 the government manoeuvring to avoid litigation by health-workers (and their families) who contract it as a result of inadequate PPE and other precautions? Those of us...
  12. My first experience of Vortex Warranty

    I recently bought a secondhand Vortex scope on UKV. It had a problem so I contacted Vortex UK distributor and sent it in. (The private seller on UKV was entirely helpful, BTW, but it seemed sensible to go to Vortex) A brand new scope arrived by return of post. Refreshingly simple, no...
  13. “Be afraid, be very afraid” (but then do something helpful about it)

    “Be afraid, be very afraid" (The Fly?!) Fear is often thought of as a negative thing, particularly in a national crisis event, however, if the response to fear is appropriate, it can be beneficial. Watch the video below (it might seem technical but most viewers will understand the...

    I have a family friend who wants to buy her son a deer Stalking outing (or a few?) for his 18th birthday. He's a very level-headed young man and has some shotgun experience but I don't think he has much/any rifle shooting experience. They live near Derby, so something in that region (or...
