    Nightforce nxs

    Its encouraging that you got a good conclusion eventually.Could i ask whether you sent it back via a distributer or on your own? If you sent it back yourself,did you contact nightforce first? Paul

    Nightforce nxs

    It wont track reliably.If you put on 4 clicks at 100 yards it may move 6 inch up and 2 inch right.It will hold a group though.However if i then move 4 clicks down it will move randomly.Almost like each click has a random value.

    I swapped scopes with a chap and it soon became obvious why he wanted to swap.Anyhow the scope ive been lumbered with,an nxs,needs to go back for warranty work.Anyone had any experience doing this bearing in mind i have no receipt.Thanks in advance. Paul

    Sounds like theyre doing a good job of conserveing grouse numbers which is their job i.e. what theyre being paid to do.You are now fortunate enough to have obtained a new peice of ground to shoot over on the strength of this.well done.

    If youre returning 70% on released birds you need to carry on doing whatever it is your doing .70% return is pretty special.

    Look,there are commercial pheasant shoots that make a good profit,usually the bigger shoots,shooting big bags.Theres a lot of smaller commercial shoots which do run on tight margins.Without farm payments/subsidies etc they would not exist.Im lucky in that for the last 22 years my employer had no financial worries,as long as the estate didnt run in the red he was happy.I know plenty of owners who run their estate on the same basis.In effect they shoot their personal/family days at no cost,paid for by the let days.

    Perhaps you need to factor in keepers wages,housing,4x4s ,corn prices,diesel prices,rent if applicable,cover crops,beaters wages ,well im sure you get the idea.There really isnt a huge profit margin you know.For most shoot owners its a labour of love.They do it because they enjoy it.Theres nothing wrong with doing something because you enjoy it.

    Most commercial pheasant shoots are run on a shoestring.Making any profit is considered good.That is a fact.

    Are you now saying that packham isnt trying to disrupt the game shooting industry? Priceless.

    Very few prosecutions in fairness.Do you think your friend packham should be prosecuted for his persecution of kestrels?
