Thread: 2 Hours on the Rape

    2 Hours on the Rape

    There is an area of short rape quite close to my house so it is easy to watch for birds flighting in,
    this crop never took well on the headland so quite a long strip is very behind compared to the rest.

    I was also trying out a modified flapper, most come with a 300 rpm motor, I have swapped them out with 400 rpm ones. Quite a lot of the birds headed straight for the very fast set of wings.

    One draw back is the plastic crank pin takes a beating, so 15 mins on the mill cured that!

    My Spaniel saw some action in the 2 hours we stayed...

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Well done, quite often a stunted strip of rape in a field can be a big draw as its the only readily available bit, trouble is this time of the year it grows so quick. Many years ago whilst in Shropshire i had a similar day also on that day I had a buzzard hit a pigeon on my floater, it was lucky it was not skewerd.

    Ta very much Tim, the bigger bags go to the game dealer @ 25p a bird, those are going this afternoon to a mate who will always take 20/30. He shoots a lot of rabbits on small holding etc so drops me off some.
