How bad was that?  About 7 minutes of shooting, 10 seconds of dog work.... 12 minutes of drinking piss and eating food and 12 mintues of shooting clays....  Undecided

disgusting what he did how can they breed birds just to be let go at hunters, in my books its not sport. sport hunting is another term used for killing an animal to feed ones self or family.
but when they host drives like they did with fox hunting is not sport but a killing fest for the snobs and lazy arses sorry but thats how i feel.. if i wanted some one to biff a bird at me and shoot it i would buy a chicken from pac n save and get my mate to biff it at me and shoot it that way.. in essence thats what happens.. they breed them and then let them go at hunters sad man thats  so sad and they call it sport.. i laugh at that term... game bird hunting is useing dogs to flush your quarry out then move on to the next one and so on and so on thats how i see it thats my 2 cents worth ok Smiley.

Hat off to Guy and co., looks like they've done some good things there. Even better, I've known some of the shooters for years and its not like they are the rich pricks that some people would have us all believe.

Hairy, Lab trials there tomorrow, why don't you come up for a look at the dogs?

actually it's alot easier to shoot a pheasant over a pointing dog than 90% of the ones put over the guns, they are not sitting ducks trust me.
think of a pheasant preserve the same way as that property you where going to pay to shoot a deer with alan, you wouldn't pay good money to see f**k all deer would you or too work as hard as you would by hunting on the public reserve, all birds shot were picked up and eaten and it was hardly a turkey shoot as the shooting wasn't exactly A grade Grin

Hunting should never be easy or you would pack it in and do other things.
i still would pay 400 bucks just to get out on some land just to get the chance to get a fellow deer even if it took me a week. i like to work for my $$ and i like to work harder for my meat. i did phesant hunting and it was a lot more fun over dog's is all. Smiley

I agree with you pickled_sausage, as far as im concerned thats wasn't hunting nothing beats getting amongst it and using your dog to the best of its ability, they could have had kids picking those birds up it was that easy.

Geoff never did ask Guy Ralph why he wasn't allowed to shoot more than 3 birds or operate as a preserve. was a blatant PR programme like all Geoffs seem to be lately, you let me and my mates in and we will give you heaps of advertising. His programmes have turned to crap in a big way
  

The kill is not the bottom line reason for the hunt, but it cannot be removed from the equation
