Thread: Supportive wife (not) shooting partridge.

  1. #1

    Supportive wife (not) shooting partridge.

    Its a day I take off myself on the shoot i manage/keeper.
    So all the guns are my mates and the wives and kids come along.
    There is no bag limit on us and they are all very selective.
    As you could see very bright and no wind so the pheasants didn't perform very well.
    We had a wild duck drive which was mixed in with a partridge drive, excellent the ducks came from behind the pegs and the partridge from the front.
    Very exciting I had over a box of shells on that drive alone (where i'm stood in the rape).
    The craik is always great and as some of the guns are made up from some of the usual beaters, the beaters try extra hard for us.
    And the best part is because i'm shooting my son steps in and runs the beating line for me, he does a great job and enjoys it.
    My son, daughter, nephew and wife (when not filming) were beating for me.
    Does'nt get any better.
    Except for the wife's banter. LOL

    Very much enjoyed the video and glad you had a good day.
    I take my 12 year old son shooting with me, he gives a running commentary if I'm shooting badly which he reports to the other guns at the end of the drive but says little if I've shot well.
    Incidentally, when I suggested to the wife that she might like to share the cost of the brace of partridges that I took home she had the audacity to say that at 250 per bird she could get them cheaper at the butchers. How mean is that!
