have you considered putting some birds down yourself.
How many acres is your ground, cover, woods etc.
Iam in south wales my self (closer than you think) but dogless at the moment.
what dogs have you got at the moment,
mike shefford (Housty) kennels is in swansea he might put you in touch with clubs or english springer club of wales.
you will get local club numbers from the kennel club web site.
Elvin will also help as per cockermadblonde post.
best of luck?
Cheers mate, taken me about 3 years to get the places I got
and it wasnt as simple as knocking the door and asking to go out with the gun.
I have wondered about putting down some birds but know there are several others who shoot the land I go on so they would prob mostly be shot by others
also never done anything like that before, I wouldn't mind giving it a go mind you but prob not for a few years yet.
At the moment mate I have a Labrador I use for my duck shooting and general mooching about, she is 2 and does ok.
Have a 1 year old Springer who is a nice wee bitch but very timid so have done very little with her, hoping to do alot this summer and really bring her along for some rough shooting
She retrieved a big mallard duck last season and brought it to me
Just need to teach her to be steady
