"The Dromia Rule"

Deer Stalking… reliable word of mouth recommendation from someone you know has undertaken such stalking being offered by a specific syndicate is best. Like other walks of life, stalking has its scammers. E.G., make sure there is deer, of the species sought, on the land being made available; that appropriate insurance is in place; that there is recourse for recompense if it all goes wrong. In addition, obtain and understand terms and conditions; consider the implications of allowing a syndicate leader to be a FAC mentor; make sure ‘coaches’ are suitably qualified; consider the quality of deer management, the construction & execution of a shooting plan and safety; determine if the land is over-shot.

If in doubt, contact BASC or similar.

Anyone considered to be a scammer will be banned without warning.

A neighbour was cleaning out his shed and came across these traps. He asked me if I would like them, I said yes..... Goodness knows why, I would never use them. I will probably give them to a country pub as wall hangers.

We have three Gin traps hanging on a wall, they came out of some woods in Bedfordshire maybe 40 years ago and are all still fully functional.

I read somewhere online, that the EU was going to try and ban Fenn traps soon.

It appears that there can be a fair bit of money in the right old trap.

Crikey, wish I'd seen that before I sent 20 or so for scrap a couple of years back. 8-)

Ok,so I suppose that's directed at me then.
Am I allowed to Pm Jenks?
I didn't realise my first post had even been deleted,I have had so much computer trouble lately that I thought a glitch caused it to fail sending or something.
Apologies for any wrong doing and "persistant"

Regards Bryan.
