I know there are several members here who are pretty hot on all things fungi, so hoping they can confirm identification of the following:
No idea about these!
I’ve had an Eka Swingblade pretty much since they first came out. To be honest, though, I’ve never really liked it. The concept is very clever, but rotating the blade means that you get blood and other detritus inside the handle. Not a problem if you only have one beast to gralloch, but a bit...
This story popped up on my Facebook feed.
Not overly familiar with moose, but to me it looks like it may be badly tick-infested, so not sure I’d have wanted to go for a dip in the pool afterwards.
I have a worrying urge to buy one for boning out haunches.
I normally just using a regular boning knife, but having seen their Ham Boner I can feel the "proper tool for the job" excuse rearing its ugly head!
Apologies if this has been posted before, but I find this guys work on YouTube amazing.
I know there are others here who appreciate the skills of machining:
Following on from my post on bTB in muntjac, I thought the photos here might be of interest.
This is a young muntjac buck shot in early 2018. It showed no signs of discomfort and appeared to be grazing normally, however on inspection it was clear that there was a significant abscess...
In the course of my absence from the site I encountered my first case of bTB in a muntjac, so I thought it might be interesting for others to read about.
The buck was shot on a September evening from a high seat in an area of woodland in Berkshire. The buck was observed for approximately 10...
The great jacket clear out continues!

I have had this for 10 years or so, but have...
Whilst I was watching the roe in the other thread, these two muntjac bucks appeared. Anyone who has seen my earlier photos might well recognise this path, as clearly it's a favourite for roe, muntjac and foxes alike!
Caught up with this buck and doe early this morning.
They didn't seem overly excited but there was some half-hearted following of the doe by the buck.
I moved round the field to try to get to a better position, only to find another buck come through the hedgeline. He was clearly...
I bought this new some years ago but other than an occasional plinking session in the garden it hasn't been used, so time for it to go.
It is the regular model CP88, with the 4" barrel, as seen here: https://www.sportsmanguncentre.co.uk/umarex-walther-cp88-black-177
It comes in the original...
I saw this muntjac buck coming from the cover crop and then crossing the track:
As he moved into the hay field I and browsed his way along the hedge I managed to stalk into him and capture a few shots:
After the last one my young cocker appeared through the hedge from where...
