  • I knew someone on here would know! That rather ruins my planned career as a ptarmigan startler.

  • Ha, sorry. I'm a dream smasher.

    I can't find a source for this so no idea if it's actually true, but a Swiss twitcher I know told me that Ptarmigans can be so low on energy on their winter snow holes that being startled is enough to kill them! Murderer!

  • I’ll keep an eye out for them whilst I’m here, wouldn’t want to startle one as I roll through the undergrowth with my bike bouncing along behind me.

  • Ptarmigan are legal to shoot between August 12th and December the 10th however I doubt anyone actually does.
    My comment was based around the absurdity of naming a product "Ptarmigan Pro" when the number of professional ptarmigan shooters in the world is almost certainly zero.

    I associate with a lot of Shooters and a lot of Golfers and the overlap is zero btw maybe we need a country sports thread to discuss Barbours etc.

  • 'sports'

    lol

  • Probably best not, it would give some dazzling urbanite an excuse to get REALLY angry. Around here, if I didn't associate with shooters I would have nobody to talk to.

  • I came for the discussion of "pt" stayed a bit too long for the "discussion around shooting".

  • Ban shooting, requisition the grouse moors and rewild them. And then I guess guillotine the landowners whilst you're at it. You know, for sport.

  • requisition the grouse moors and rewild them

    That's basically what Anders and Anne Holch Povlsen are doing. 80,000 hectares and counting.

    If I were a billionaire, I'd be doing the same.

  • guillotine

    Sounds a bit foreign and not very sporting.

  • I'm sure you could make it a sport

  • A bit like the hurdles, except you have to stop every 10 metres to lop some pointless aristo's head off.

  • requisition the grouse moors and rewild them

    That's basically what Anders and Anne Holch Povlsen are doing. 80,000 hectares and counting.

    Careful now... We're getting dangerously close to a debate on the highland clearances with this type of talk.

  • News just in:

    **LFGSS.COM Backs the Death Penalty **

    Metropolitan elite lifestyle website lfgss.com's Overton window has taken a surprise shift to the right....

  • When you go left enough, you end up going right.

  • See for e.g. Spiked/Living Marxism and that bloke with the massive forehead, Miss Mirza etc.

  • Deep.

    And a nice nod to the forum's fixed gear origins.

  • guillotine

    guilloptine, shirley?

  • What's he ever done to you?

  • excellent callback, 10/10

  • no it's p10/p10

  • Now we're fucking talking.

  • In the birding community, twitcher is a derogatory term. Check your privilege.

  • The equivalent of 'shit fixie skidder'?

  • More that I think "twitcher" implies an unreasonable degree of obsession. I've been corrected by birding friends more than once.
