AN AFTERNOON SHOOTING CROWS TO PROTECT A BARLEY FIELD.
There’s a farm with a hoodie problem - the grey crows are nicking the cattle feed, so Jason Coyle is out to stop them, and he is using a new Benelli.
In this week’s instalment, Geoff was called up by his friend to help a farmer who's having trouble with crows, rooks and jackdaws eating the cattle feed. Geoff has never specifically targeted corvids before, and he quickly learns it’s not the same as decoying pigeons. Despite a foggy start, and heavy rain forcing an early finish, he still manages to make a respectable bag.
Matt Turley is back - and this time he is shooting crows, rooks and jackdaws over an orchard. He is protecting the apple crop from the birds with decoys. Plus he and his mate Nigel test steel shot at range to see if it's as good as lead.
Fieldsports Nation member Alex Sorisi so liked the look of Matt Turley's crow shooting set-up, he asked if he and his sister would have a go. We asked Matt to move him to the top of the queue and off went Alex, armed with a camera. These are the results.
