Don’t rush to set up

Sporting Gun - - Letters -

I have a young fam­ily and don’t have much time to do re­con. Do you have any tips on how I can in­crease my bag in terms of where to set up when the odd spare hour oc­curs?

Tom says: This can be tricky. I live 30 min­utes from the bulk of my per­mis­sion so a re­con trip can take up a lot of my day. I will still try to get there as fre­quently as I can, but I will of­ten rely on knowl­edge from pre­vi­ous years and peo­ple on the ground.

If you don’t get the chance to have a look be­fore­hand, don’t rush into set­ting up when you do get there. You will of­ten see pat­terns and flight­lines start­ing up if you just sit with a pair of binoculars. You can then make a de­ci­sion based on what you see.
