Since bl**dy 5am he's been shooting go knows what in the field opposite my house!
It's just boom, boom then sounds like the OK corral..whizzing shot!
How can anyone be so selfish?
He must have a huge pile of dead animals by now!
If he does it again tomorrow i'll scream!
Can he be reported for firing guns early in the morning, i mean we can't beep horns on the car before 7am?

And he must be using so much ammo. He is still at it now over 5hours later.
The shots come every 2-4 mins but it's only one person.

It's anti-social behaviour at least - 5 solid hours starting at 5 am??? shock

Do you live in a residential area? I can't imagine playing with shotguns is even legal!

(is he clay-pigeon shooting?)

Are you sure it's him and not bird-scarers put out by farmers?

If there is an actual visible person there with a gun I think you could ring the local police & ask if it's legal or not.

And if it turns out to be a birdscarer you can complain to Environmental Protection at your council.

Where've you gone, Ripeberry? Have you stormed over & sorted him out? grin

don't you have to be x number of yards from a public road before you can use a gun? shop him!

Maybe something (rabbits, birds, etc) is having a massive go at his crops and dawn is the best time to catch them at it? Would be worth finding out more about his situation before going over on the defensive? He may only have to do it one morning.

Sounds more like a crow scarer. Is there a local farmer whose field it belongs to you can talk to? They shouldn't be so close to houses that it causes a disturbance. Of course it's not illegal to own a shotgun if you have a licence.

It will be a bird scarer. They are set to come on when it comes light.

It's a man with a gun, the field he is in has just been harvested (wheat), so what's the point of scaring the birds?
Have spoken to my neighbour who happens to be a policewoman and she will be on duty this afternoon and will ask the local farmer whose land it belongs to whats going on.
It just unusual, normally if there is a shoot by the lake it's on a weekend and that gets VERY noisy, but it's never early in the morning.
Oh damn, there he goes again, must have stopped for lunch!
