A little group work in the field now that it’s cooled down a little. Young Paris on the lead to stop her moving about. Of course as soon as you get the phone out the dogs know they can slightly mess about. Amber trying to pick up two to save her self another journey. Forgot my whistle as well... #rivergginsgundogs #rivergginsphotography #fieldsportsphotography #labradors #labradorsofinstagram #labphotooftheday #labradoroftheday #yellowlabsquad #yellowlab #yellowlaboftheday #birddog #birddogoftheday #blacklab #blacklabrador #foxredlab #foxredlabrador #countrysidealliance

Should cartridge colour denote bore? Q: Why don’t cartridge makers stick 
to an internationally agreed colour code for different bore sizes as used to be the case (12-bore were red, 16-bore blue and 20-bore yellow)? Surely this would stop all of these dreadful accidents where people who mix cartridges double-load a 12-bore on top of a 20-bore that is stuck up the barrel. It’s a shooting myth A: It is one of those shooting myths that different bores of cartridge were always colour-coded to distinguish them. Eley used to load some of its 12-bores with cherry-red cases, its 16-bores with blue and its 20-bores in yellow, for example, and this has fuelled the myth that such 
a code existed in the first place. The problem caused by a double load was recognised in the 1920s. I have an original Eley catalogue that mentions this problem along with a specially coloured cartridge case made to alert people to double loading. Its colour? Not yellow as you might think, but amethyst with black 
lines along the axis and the words “Eley 20 gauge” on it. The fact is that makers use, and have used, many colours of card or plastic to market their cartridges. It boils down 
to marketing and being able to make 
their product stand out from others to boost sales. The solution to the 12/20-bore double load lies not in case colouring but in vigilance. If you glance up the bore of your gun before every shot to check it is clear before loading another round, this can never happen. . . . #shooting #jakt #jaktforlivet #waidmannsheil #jagare #hunting #fieldsports #drivengame #drivenpheasant #pewpew #pewpewlife #shotgun #gunmaking #countrylife #huntinglife #gameshooting #fieldsportsphotography #drivenshooting #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #chasse #thehuntinglife #shotguns #shootingphotography #browningeurope
Itching to get back out there for buck season. I have to wait a little longer yet however. Hope you’re all having a good season, anyone out this weekend? . . . . . . . . #shooting #hunting #outdoors #fieldsports #fieldsportsphotography #countrylife #countryman #countrysports #deerstalking #deerhunter #deermanagement #rws #remington #ogdens #gear #huntepic #themonocular #latergram
sporting shooting to continue to be acceptable we must practise it in ways that are both wise and sustainable. This means it must also be humane. The sportsman’s aim is to achieve the instantaneous kill of each bird or animal that he or she shoots at, and then its speedy retrieval so that it is put to good use and not wasted. Every bird and animal (including so-called ‘pest’ species) is a sentient creature and should not suffer unnecessarily as a result of our sporting shooting or pest control activities. These principles are not new – they are embodied in long-established practice among responsible shooters, including: using appropriate pellet sizes for different quarry types ‘patterning’ the gun plus cartridge to ensure cartridge effectiveness using practical aids to range judging shooting ‘within range’ using gundogs for picking up shot quarry care with dead quarry so it can be enjoyed as food. . . . . #pigeonshooting #gamekeeping #huntingdaily #woodpigeonshooting #crowhunting #browningeurope #hunting #fieldsports #fieldcraft #rabbitshooting #theshootingway #roostshooting #pigeonflighting #pigeondecoying #countrylife #huntinglife #ferreting #fieldsportsphotography #decoying #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #wildfowling #thehuntinglife #berettapride #pestcontrol #shootingphotography
An amazing day for the @jack_pyke open today at the fantastic @sportingt shooting ground. Why would anyone want to shoot anywhere else? #clayshooting #fieldsportsphotography #shooting #shootingrange #shootingcompetition #dowhatmakesyoufeelgood #sunshine #hotshots #lifestyle #altrlifestylephotography
Quick walk around after work for a pigeon or two. I don’t have the privilege of owning a pair of @aimcam_official glasses yet .😎 So one handed shooting with a phone in the other has to do for you guys. This clip shows how hardy pigeon can be, hit with both barrels of number 5.5 shot (slide left to the freeze frames ) the bird was dead on retrieval but took some killing none the less. Ok so the first shot might of been a bit sloppy due to the one handed shooting. Anyway i hear of People shooting them with 7.5 clay loads all the time, and this I disagree with, I’m great believer in using appropriate shot size and trying to find a good patterning cartridge, I would never use anything less than 6 shot unless they were literally throwing them selfs at you over a very close decoy pattern say under 25 yards . We should always try our best to despatch our quarry in the best possible manor and always search for pricked birds as soon as possible. . . #pigeonshooting #gamekeeping #huntingdaily #woodpigeonshooting #crowhunting #browningeurope #hunting #fieldsports #fieldcraft #rabbitshooting #theshootingway #roostshooting #pigeonflighting #pigeondecoying #countrylife #huntinglife #ferreting #fieldsportsphotography #decoying #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #wildfowling #thehuntinglife #berettapride #pestcontrol #shootingphotography
#ThrowBackThursday A great memory and walk about on the local shoot with @tweedle_do_ and the little one. Fantastic company, fresh air, a trusty gun over your arm, a faithful dog and the chance of a bird or two is all the average hunter needs to be happy. And I’m a very happy hunter! 😁 . . . . . . . . . . #shooting #hunting #outdoors #fieldsports #fieldsportsphotography #countrylife #countryman #countrysports #countrywear #shotgun #miroku #12bore #countrygirl #countrycouple #alanpaine #huntepic #themonocular #tbt #latergram #happiness
With a lot going on about ticks recently, I thought I’d share a photograph of the last buck I took. A very small button buck on a plantation causing damage. On inspection, the poor little thing was riddled with ticks which must have been causing discomfort. I watched him along with 3 doe for the best part of 2 hours before taking the shot. He scratched a lot and displayed signs of irritation all through this time. In another situation I would have let this one be. But through my choice his time was up, and I’m happy with my decision. And here’s to a full and fast recovery for @the_country_mans_diary Take it easy mate . . . . . . . . . . . . #shooting #hunting #outdoors #fieldsports #fieldsportsphotography #deerstalking #deerhunter #countrylife #countryman #countrysports #sunset #cullbuck #deermanagement #venison #huntepic #themonocular #latergram

What sort of waste are spent shotgun cartridges? According to guidance from the Environment Agency (EA), spent shotgun cartridges are classed as a ‘Directive Waste’. The phrase “Directive Waste” refers to European legislation called the Waste Framework Directive. Directive wastes include nearly all household, commercial and industrial wastes. Directive wastes have to be assessed as to whether they are classed as ‘Hazardous Waste’ or ‘Non-hazardous Waste’ according to a set of criteria under the Waste Framework Directive. Even though spent shotgun cartridges contain lead (hazardous substance) residues, lead is not present in the quantities required for it to be classed as a ‘Hazardous Waste’. Spent shotgun cartridges are therefore classed as a ‘Non-hazardous’ waste and are subject to the regulations governing non-hazardous waste. Domestic quantities: Local authorities are responsible for the removal and management of domestic household waste. Based on guidance from the EA, small quantities of cartridges can be deposited in normal domestic household waste*. No official policy exists to define the limits of ‘small quantities’, however the EA suggests anything up to 100 cartridges is reasonable. Local authorities have a duty of care to remove non-hazardous, directive waste, which spent cartridges are. Any problems encountered by the removal of spent shotgun cartridges in your domestic waste needs to be addressed with the local authority responsible. Commercial quantities: Disposal of large quantities of spent shotgun cartridges are subject to the new agricultural waste regulations (further details on the EA website). Under these regulations disposal of large quantities of spent shotgun cartridges by burning or burial is illegal. The EA recommends contacting a local waste recycling company to arrange removal. . . . #shooting #jakt #jaktforlivet #waidmannsheil #jagare #hunting #fieldsports #drivengame #drivenpheasant #pewpew #pewpewlife #shotgun #gunmaking #countrylife #huntinglife #gameshooting #fieldsportsphotography #drivenshooting #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #chasse #thehuntinglife #shotguns #shootingphotography #browning

The Clear Pigeon cartridge from Gamebore in 32g no.6. I've used it a lot over the years for pigeons that don't easily commit to the decoy pattern. It seems to maintain a pretty good pattern at distance. The design used to include a black plastic casing, but the newer transparent design is pretty cool and lives up to the name. From bottom to top, you can see the gunpowder, fibre wad and lead shot. . . . . #fieldsports #gameshooting #shotgun #caza #tweed #gameseason #gundog #countrysports #lovehunting #deerstalking #pigeonshooting #builtforthewild #gundogs #ruralengland #fieldsportsphotography #whatgetsyououtdoors #huntingseason #rifleshooting #deerhunting #gamekeeping #gamebirds #crowshooting #huntingislife #jagd #jakt #shooting #villmarksliv #vildmarken #sidebyside #hunting

Shooting safely is paramount and you should always abide by the following statements: Never point a gun, loaded or unloaded, in an unsafe direction. • Never shoot unless you are sure it is safe to do so. • Always have the safety catch on ‘safe’ until the moment before you fire. • Always bear in mind the possibility of a ricochet particularly across water or off branches and vegetation. • Never fire blindly into dense vegetation. • Never take chance low shots without a clear fall out zone for your shot. • Never travel with a loaded shotgun. • Never put down a loaded shotgun or leave it unattended. • Keep your fingers away from the trigger until you want to fire. • Always be steady on your feet before you shoot. Never keep a dog attached to you while shooting; it may pull you off balance. • Never shoot unless you are certain of your target and can see it clearly. • Never shoot at, or near, overhead obstructions e.g. power lines or other installations. • Be extra careful shooting near buildings or concrete structures; ricochets are a real danger. • At all times guard against shot carrying beyond the boundary of your permitted shooting area. . . . . #pigeonshooting #gamekeeping #huntingdaily #woodpigeonshooting #crowhunting #browningeurope #hunting #fieldsports #fieldcraft #rabbitshooting #theshootingway #roostshooting #pigeonflighting #pigeondecoying #countrylife #huntinglife #ferreting #fieldsportsphotography #decoying #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #wildfowling #thehuntinglife #berettapride #pestcontrol #shootingphotography
Happy Fathers Day! My dad has taught me so much over the years. Beating, shooting, fly fishing, sea fishing, car maintenance and so much more. He still teaches me things now and I’m sure he will continue to teach me in the future. Dad, I can’t thank you enough. You’re truly someone special. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fathersday #outdoors #fieldsports #fieldsportsphotography #shooting #hunting #huntepic #themonocular #springer #spaniel #cocker #cockerspaniel #springerspaniel #workingdog #countrylife #countryman #countrysports #dad
Soon be time....the glorious twelfth is approaching! If you’re looking to have your day on the grouse documented, do let me know, as after having a look through my diary this morning I only have limited dates in August and September available. #grouseshooting #grousemoor #shootingphotography #fieldsportsphotography #purdeyandsons #purdey #grousebutt
Can’t wait to get back on the pigeons properly, pretty quite round here at the moment, there’s a few on the clover but they’ll be back in bigger numbers though once they’ve finish nesting. We will see what the baby boom brings. Just waiting for the little barley there is to blow over and for the rape to get cut and we’ll be back in business. Still out watching flight lines, recognisance is key . . . . . #pigeonshooting #gamekeeping #huntingdaily #woodpigeonshooting #crowhunting #browningeurope #hunting #fieldsports #fieldcraft #rabbitshooting #theshootingway #roostshooting #pigeonflighting #pigeondecoying #countrylife #huntinglife #ferreting #fieldsportsphotography #decoying #12bore #12gauge #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #wildfowling #thehuntinglife #berettapride #pestcontrol #shootingphotography

Some times I wonder why I carry a 8lb 3 oz trap gun as a walk about gun. It’s not that bad when it’s just the gun and a few shells....it’s more when your hiking miles with all the other paraphernalia across ploughed fields pigeon shooting. 💪😂 Anyone else use a heavy trap gun for game shooting ? . . . . #pigeonshooting #gamekeeping #huntingdaily #woodpigeonshooting #crowhunting #browningeurope #hunting #fieldsports #fieldcraft #rabbitshooting #theshootingway #roostshooting #pigeonflighting #pigeondecoying #countrylife #huntinglife #ferreting #fieldsportsphotography #decoying #12bore #gamekeeper #wingshooting #countryman #farmlife #wildfowling #thehuntinglife #berettapride #pestcontrol #shootingphotography

Ethical hunting is something that I'm always keen to promote, especially outside of the hunting community. Today I read that yet another lion has been lured out of an African national park to be hunted by an international businessman with no obvious benefit to local people being reported. Of course the press jumped on this story to vilify all hunters. Of course the press made all hunting very black and white. My only response to this story can be to lead by example for those newly involved in our community, and to educate those outside our community who are willing to listen. Hunting in its many forms is not black and white. I hunt by the principles taught to me by my peers. Like others who hunt around me, I make sure that my rifle is accurate and that I'm using appropriate ammunition for the task at hand. I learn to positively identify my quarry and its behaviour. I do my utmost to make sure my shots are safe and deadly accurate. I look to avoid the suffering of any animal. I eat what I can and use the rest to provide for other animals. If I'm hunting game, I make sure my shots are sporting. Above all, I make sure that the species I hunt are sustainable in that area. I honestly believe that if we want to diffuse the ever growing debate around hunting, we must be seen by those outside of our community to practice these principles to best of our abilities. . . . . #fieldsports #gameshooting #shotgun #caza #tweed #gameseason #gundog #countrysports #lovehunting #deerstalking #pigeonshooting #builtforthewild #gundogs #ruralengland #fieldsportsphotography #whatgetsyououtdoors #huntingseason #rifleshooting #deerhunting #gamekeeping #gamebirds #crowshooting #huntingislife #jagd #jakt #shooting #villmarksliv #vildmarken #sidebyside #hunting

Monday is gun day!! 🙌 I'm an over and under type of guy myself but this semi-auto could definitely change all that!! 👀 Fantastic looking shotgun 👀👀 #hunting #shooting #shotgun #semiauto #browning #wingshooting #ireland #fieldsports Great pic by: #Repost @guns_and_tweed with @get_repost ・・・ Corvid Shooting Video - this is some of the footage of me corvid shooting on a pig farm several weeks ago, which put 73 in the bag. It's a vital part of life on the farm and is done to limit the spread of diseases from one farm to the next, as well as to protect the pig food. These birds arrive in their thousands and steal a huge amount of food. Let's not forget that they also steal the eggs and fledglings of song birds, attack young animals and systematically destroy crops. Like all pest shooting, this isn't done to eradicate the corvid population, just to reduce numbers. They can be eaten but there's no market for them, probably because they tend to eat road kill and other dead animals. In the video I'm using a Browning Maxus semi auto with a 30" barrel and 1/2 choke. On the day, I switched between 32g no.5 fibre wad Gamebore Dark Storm and Hull Pheasant Extreme. To be honest, I don't find much practical difference between these cartridges. I was killing birds cleanly between 20 and 75 yards, so they definitely do the job. I prefer a heavier cartridge for corvids because they're a very tough bird, although it's not essential. . #fieldsports #gameshooting #shotgun #caza #tweed #gameseason #gundog #countrysports #lovehunting #deerstalking #pigeonshooting #builtforthewild #gundogs #ruralengland #fieldsportsphotography #whatgetsyououtdoors #huntingseason #rifleshooting #deerhunting #gamekeeping #gamebirds #crowshooting #huntingislife

I prefer a heavier cartridge for corvids because they're a very tough bird, although it's not essential. I don't spread the shot too much on these birds because you'll want to get 5+ pellets on target, unlike pigeons where you might only need 2+ to bring the bird down. It's worth me saying that you should ask the farmer before shooting over livestock. I use fibre wads only. Pigs are very intelligent and aren't concerned by the noise of shotgun fire. I always make sure that my shots are placed safely (for the pigs and farm workers at least). . . . . #fieldsports #gameshooting #shotgun #caza #tweed #gameseason #gundog #countrysports #lovehunting #deerstalking #pigeonshooting #builtforthewild #gundogs #ruralengland #fieldsportsphotography #whatgetsyououtdoors #huntingseason #rifleshooting #deerhunting #gamekeeping #gamebirds #crowshooting #huntingislife #jagd #jakt #shooting #villmarksliv #vildmarken #sidebyside #hunting
