New Permission

Friday night in my local, chatting to two friends who have a Goat farm two villages over from us & asked them if they had a bonfire on the go still as I knew they had cleared some trees & bushes last week & we were cutting down our Lylandii this weekend so wanted to shift the trunks & debris pronto.

No problem they said so Saturday after dumping 5 trailer loads on the bonfire & having a coffee or two with them they mentioned they wanted me to sit out for a Fox that had taken one of their geese & a couple of ducks in the last few weeks.

No problem I said & then the conversation turned to Deer & they said we are overrun at the moment do you think you can help with them as well! :eek: Didn't think they had that many up there as its quite open ground/grass fields with no wooded areas to speak of for a mile or so.

After biting their arm off at the shoulder I reluctantly agreed :D

So I've got 250 acres of stalking subject to police confirmation that the land is cleared for centerfire rifle which we think historically it is.

Happy days :D

Good news! The local FEO called just now & he's confirmed land is cleared & even if it wasn't he knows the farm well & I would have been cleared by return phone call, top bloke.

I`ve got to do some homework first but i`m contemplating asking if i can put a few ducks and geese on the pond though it`s not very big. If the owner says yes then i`ll do some clearing to find out the size of it. There`s a few foxes that need sorting also.
It`s a very quiet place to be.
