    They will always need you, before you need them!

    They being the landowner,...... about eight months ago , Mike & I were requested out of the blue to cease & desist the fox & rabbit control on a farm that lies about a mile from my home, no explanations, no reasons, ..... a few rumours , all groundless,... C'est la Vie..., anyways, phone goes at 08.30 Monday morning, I'm around gate 38, M6 Northbound, this same farmer wails he's had two lambs go missing without trace, & a further one badly mauled around the cheek, so I say I'll be on the ground as soon as I get home,(now I'm in the shower 04.50, five days a week, & often not home till 22.00), but Lady Luck smiles on me, & I get in the house at a decent enough time to be at the farm & in the oft used position on top of a container by 17.30, farmer comes out for a chat , & says the problem is at the front of the house, I say it's OK!,they always come through here ,............ I figured this dog is going to be out early to feed his dens, sure enough, 19.15, boiler room shot @ 160 yards with one of these new Nosler shotz soft points, (Roo bullets) perfect for Roe I think.... Early bath, back in good books! Result.

    Excellent stuff! I'm on the trail of a lamb-killer too. I nearly got it last night, but the bleddy wind was wrong and it scented me before I could shoot it. Looks like I'll be back up there tonight...

    Turns out he'd had a bit of pressure applied from some local unsavoury, must have seen us lamping a while back, funny how these types are willing to mither an old farmer, but don't have the backbone for an out of hours talk with the people concerned.
