For the majority of pigeon shooters, consistent winter sport means tackling the challenges of the winter crops and if there is one crop that counts it is oil seed rape. Widely grown across the UK, it sustains the pigeon population when little else is available. This programme tackles a range of situations presented by oil seed rape when huge flocks of pigeon can decimate a field as the short days force them to feed voraciously. With a truly comprehensive and illustrated range of tips and techniques to tackle oil seed rape, the video also covers the opportunities that early drilled cereals present as winter turns to spring.
