Yes, also depending on what you do is expensive too. I forget about cheap shooting from time to time, but then when I rediscover rabbit shooting with the 22 or a bit of pigeon shooting it reminds me that I get just as much enjoyment from the shooting which is virtually free, close to home, and much less work... not to mention many more chances to pull the trigger.
I do agree that we are very lucky here with our long seasons. I was lamenting to a US friend a while back about how they can have pistols, semi auto rifles and what not and he pointed out to me that whilst they can have pretty much what they want gun wise it is limited mainly to range use for all but 2-3 weeks of the year because their hunting seasons are so short.You're spoilt in the UK that you have deer in season all year. Here in Norway, roebucks kick off the year 10 th august, after that it's reindeer, all roedeer, red deer and elk until 23rd December, and then that 's it for another year.
I like winter foxing and there is beaver hunting in springtime.
A few years ago when I was trying to get into stalking this would really of wound me up! Im sure you can find some help if its that much of a chore.
Getting Fed Up ?? Not I ! Happily retired with lots of opportunities and never had it so good .The chaps on you tube bait an area with peanut feeders before having a stint with air gun and get very good bags .
I’m into most field sports ,fishing ,BOP,terriers and all the shooting disciplines so getting fed up doesn’t come into it .
Luckily I’m at the stage in my life where others are earning me money and I can do all these things plus it’s done for free on permissions earned over the years .
If your getting fed up mate then maybe golf is for you lol.
When I was a young man I loved a bit of Beaver hunting. Used to go foxing with a certain young lady and also used to stop earths with her during the hunting season. Alas I am too old now to hunt Beaver anymore but memories are great, and we still have a good laugh about it 45 years on. when I see her.I like winter foxing and there is beaver hunting in springtime.
I find that inviting people out (assuming you have the relevant permissions) can add enjoyment. Especially if they are a keen novice. Some of that enthusiasm may rub off on you>
I must admit I get a greater amount of enjoyment out of watching a friend stalk on the estate, [especially a relative novice] than stalking myself. I did however favour more experienced companions when beaver hunting.I find that inviting people out (assuming you have the relevant permissions) can add enjoyment.
