tree houses for grown men

Post by Maria on Sat 13 Mar 2010 - 17:58

Twiz and I could hardly believe the efforts the hunters go to to build these 'dens' which are all over the woods and they all look so precarious.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Now I would be up there, I loved climbing trees, getting down was another story, but with a ladder hey, fantastic I could spend hours up there just watching the world. Great LO, I like the way you've echoed the ladder with your journalling.

That's such an unusual subject. Great LO.
When you say hunting, what do they hunt, and how do the tree
houses come into play ? I can't read the journalling.

they hunt pigeons from them Steph.... they send a live one up on a high wire to act as a lure, its all a bit barbaric, and then when the unsuspecting pigeons flying overhead spot it they come down where 16 men let loose with a twelve bore.

It seems a bit excessive to me I must say, but they all spend hours doing it, the whole month of October. My aunt who is a twitcher says that the french are the scourge of the bird watching world. Mind you, round here they shoot anything that moves!

do they eat pigeons then maria ?

i thought pigeon pie was just a joke sort of thing .send them all to nottingham market square we have to have pigeon culling at times we have so many and they ruin all the old buildings with their mess and germs.
they have even stopped ppl feeding them here ,to try discourage them .

funnily enough, we've just walked the dog down there and twiz has spotted a cable running down the tree (like a huge extension lead but just a conenctor block where the plug should be, so it looks like they even put electricity up there!
