Black Friday, where did this craziness come from?

Image
well it's that time of year again when we all get a little bit crazy over grabbing a bargain. In this weeks blog we thought we'd try to delve in to where Black Friday came from.
There are lots of different stories about how Black Friday began, some say it began in the late 1800's when a two greedy business men tried to buy up all the gold eventually causing a crash that was referred to as Black Friday. Another suggestion was that it came from a business term for coming out of the red. It was thought that companies struggled for most of the year, until the Thanksgiving holiday when people had the time off to take advantage of the low prices, which would push businesses back into the red.
It's also been claimed that it was the large department store, Macy's that in 1924 began their famous Thanksgiving Day parade, and noticed a large jump in sales the day after.
The truth however is the term 'Black Friday' was first used by the  Philadelphia police, who in th…

Just because the nights are getting darker, doesn't mean the shooting has to stop!

Here at Reid Outdoors we're so passionate about shooting that we don't let the dark nights stop us getting out there. In this weeks blog we're going to discuss hunting at night.
Tips & Tactics Hunting at night can bring an abundance of rewards, as more animals make their way out into the open under the cover of darkness. This is a great time to see Rabbits and Rats moving further away from their nests and warrens. 
We suggest moving along the sides of the fields near where the nests/warrens are to block their escape. Move out from here scanning the field with a lamp. If you see anything you could take a free shoot, but we fins it's better to get into a kneeling stance , this way you're on their level and more hidden. One thing to keep in mind at night is that the dim light can make the targets seem further away than they are, so you'll need to take this into account before firing.
Although you're going to see more rabbits in fields, if you're inter…

Even in the cold you can still get a nibble!

Just because the days are getting shorter and colder it doesn't mean that you have to back away your bait and rods, there is still fish to catch. We're so passionate about fishing that we like to get out there every season, so in this weeks blog we're going to talk about what's still swimming in our seas.
As the weather hasn't gotten to cold yet, there will still be some of the summer fish to be had, especially on the southern coast. You may still be lucky enough to hook some mackerel, thornback ray and large bass and pollock. As autumn moves closer to winter you are more likely to see whiting and flatfish such as flounder and dab.
Thornback Ray

As we move into the new year and the water gets colder then the cod fishing becomes more abundant, although be wary of the smaller cod as they have a habit of  stealing the bait and becoming a nuisance. If you're brave enough to venture out on the coldest of days then it could be extremely rewarding, with a chance of ca…
