    @Derek yea man, first time out and came home with some food. Well chuffed

  • Derek's avatar

    @David doesn't get any better than that. Hopefully you'll be able to keep hunting with this fella.

    @Derek yea for sure, it’s my friends dad and he’s happy to take me out whenever. I knew he done it but didn’t know him well enough to ask lol. Went to see him a few weeks ago n had a chat n were golden. Just waiting on my shotgun license now but I’m still legal if I’m with someone with a license and on private land with permission m. Happy daze man, happy daze. Finally harvested an animal haha

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Adam haha wood pigeon is delicious man. Last time I had it was on a survival course. Great meat

  • Dan's avatar

    Awesome brother! Congrats! Quite a trophy and accomplishment indeed! I have heard it is a tough to hunt out there with no legal bow hunting among other laws so well done! 👊🏼🍻

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Dan Yea it’s been tough man. Have had to pick away at it for years to find access man. Thanks amigo 💪🏻👊🏻

    My favorite wrapped in bacon

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Andrew yea it’s rare I get to go after them but I do love me. Gonna try pigeon poppers next time

  • Andrew's avatar

    I’ve been to Scotland golfing many times shot some grouse there on the glorious 12th

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Andrew I do love the grouse too man, very under rated meat

  • Ferg's avatar

    Can be difficult to get access to private land to shoot them but great when u do

  • Andrew's avatar

    I managed to find a friend to hunt dove with this year and they’ve been awesome! Definitely a trophy!

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Andrew yea it was my first time out with the shotgun not shooting at clays. Unfortunately I don’t have access to that piece of land anymore but it was a great day. Good way to get started out

  • Andrew's avatar

    @Ferg it’s so different than shooting at clays. Hopefully you can get access to another place!

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Andrew am sure I will. I’m moving again pretty soon and there’s loads of farms about that are keen to let some one they know in for pest control. Fingers crossed man

  • Zachary's avatar

    @Ferg shotgun license? Do you have to get a license for any weapons you decide to hunt with?

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Zachary yea Scotland is very different from America. You need a license for an air pistol and rifle never mind a shotgun

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Zachary are you related to @Osborn their the only other Osborn”s i k ow of on here

  • Zachary's avatar

    No I am not. My dad is on here though. @Steve
