How much have you other shooters been charged by your Doctor?


Nothing - in Wiltshire, the Police assume if they haven't received the form back from the GP, that there's nothing to be reported. This follows the guidance from the government, which some counties' forces adopted but others decided otherwise.

Sadly sounds like yours is an "otherwise" county: -

When I had my FAC & SGC last renewed I wasn’t charged anything by the GP. They’re up for renewal again next year so I’m guessing I’ll have to pay their admin fee. I needed some form filling out for work last year and they charged me £28 for the pleasure of signing and stamping it. 2002 Td5 90 (SOLD)

Yep, the freezer was bare. Have been out on the roe bucks all summer and shot a grand total of 0! Seen plenty just no shots presented. This guy came in just as the sun was going down last night. A real bruiser of a melonistic buck. Instagram @richmond_custom

Slidey- no charge in Worcestershire, I renewed both of mine about 3 months ago.

Had a first day out last Saturday and it appears my middle dog, the three year old lab has started to settle into the job of peg dog / picker up. She didn’t put a foot wrong all day and was a joy to have with me. It certainly isn’t always the case! I let my son shoot on the last drive and stood back with all 3 dogs- the 8 month old cocker was interested but not concerned at all. We all went to look for a lightly touched partridge in heavily scented ground and I think that blew her mind a bit, but she didn’t do anything daft.

She is still tiny but can pick up a partridge and both of my daughters slippers. Handy.

in one go?

i have a problem in that my older lab will try to pick too many birds in one go.

She rotates them with her nose then lifts a wing, then carries three all by the wing. Its annoying as she rotates the birds on the floor and it never looks great. she just looses focus a bit. That's picking up after a drive in something like a clump of laurel or brambles which has several birds in it.

no way am a getting a picture of her with 3! Cheers

Definitely not in one go! She just manages to pick up the partridge. Training this little one is so different to the labs, she isn't mad on retrieves and it takes a lot to rev her up - not something I expected to have to do with a spanner!

My cocker does the same on 2 birds. He will try to get both in his mouth for 30s before admitting defeat and bringing one back. It’s not ideal but there are way worse habits he could have developed! Instagram @richmond_custom

Likewise my conclusion, there are far worse habits. Cheers

Labs are born half trained as well which helps, just got the other half to sort now. Cheers

There was a certain sense of smug satisfaction seeing the 3 best trained dogs on the shoot all run in at various times today!!

My dogs? Well, they managed their usual behaviour, but they also managed to hide it well!

Good boys.

Hiding it is key. Having two dogs helps too. Cheers

Took my lab working on Saturday, i was first one on the drive to reach my position so i had a nice 30 minute wait with a view. sat there with a brew and the dog.
She's a belting dog with the patience that only a labrador can have.

Caught a good picture of sundays tea too!
