Its early October of 2013, and I have had a long summer season, running Pass It On Young Sports. I was feeling stale, and although I have some fantastic hunting/fishing and shooting on my doorstep, I don’t really have any of what I call a proper countrymen of the old school to hunt with.

As I sit here on a damp miserable mid-October evening, thinking about a recent days and nights sport, with the smell of a homemade pizza cooking in the oven, and a glass of fine French red wine I can’t help but smile. You see for this old country boy remembering recent or long forgotten days and nights, out in the field with a young sport a mucker or family really fills my heart, as full as my belly is soon to be.

I have been blessed with a set of skills that some have to work hard for, but the lord has blessed me with the skill of handling well all firearms, whether it be rifle or pistol (when they were legal) or indeed in this case the air rifle. A local conservation group called me in to deal with corvid problem that was getting beyond a joke and was literally affecting the entire area of song birds and beyond. Read More....
