    good luck with finding decent homes, I've always fancied another deer hound cross but I don't have the work for another lurcher at the moment
  2. Gate Net For Hares

    I am planning to make a few hare stop/gate nets. What size mesh boards do most people use?
  3. Gate Net For Hares

    Once the hare is in the net do they struggle like feck or do they usually go still? Ive found some spun polyester in my net making stuff and I reckon it could be the stuff to use, since it seems best to not over gun the nets too much?
  4. Gate Net For Hares

    I have some stuff that a mate gave me. He reckons its what they make trawler nets with. It holds foxes pretty good, could be the same stuff?
  5. Gate Net For Hares

    Probably use the same stuff I make fox nets from. Whats recommended?
  6. Observation

    Going by some of the things I've read I think this is the wrong place for literature lessons
  7. Collie/herding Crosses

    Ok I know this has probably been done to death, but I'm just wondering which type of collies people have experience with and what they like/don't like? I prefer welsh collies as they are a bit more independent than a border but a bit more part of a team than bearded and kelpies.
  8. Lurchers And Birds...

    If by corn you mean wheat try maize. If you already mean maize then theres not much they prefer
  9. Doubling Up Dogs

    MixedGrill, Is it an old bloke from North Wales that doubles them up?
  10. On our place we shoot vermin on the rearing field and in and around the release pens with shotguns and centrefires. If anything it seems to help on a shoot day as the pheasants don't take it personally.
  11. .243 Reloaders

    I have about 150 .243 cases if anybody wants them? in North wales
  12. Ir Lenses

    Alright folks. Bought a second hand Archer a couple of months back. I have found it works well, but when I turn the IR on its abit like looking at the moon..... Any tips on how to clean the lense please?
  13. Ir Lenses

    I sussed they are dirty, that's why I asked how to clean them
  14. Changed My Mind About The Hutch

    I was told that when rearing young ferrets, keep them in a low cage so that they get used to you towering over them.... but I find they get used to you when you let em play on the lawn... any thoughts?
  15. Archer Nv

    I use a hawke frontier
  16. Passing Dogs On

    I took a young lurcher bitch on last summer, for a lad who had no kennel space and wasn't really looking after her. And after spending ages bonding and training with her I unfortunately came to the realisation that come the rearing season I wont have time for her. Luckily I found a lad who was keen to give her a go. He came to collect her this morning and I had a hell of a job keeping back the tears as I loaded her into his truck! The point i'm getting at is how can so many so called 'dog lads' keep a never ending supply of adult dogs for sale! I admit to being a softy with the dogs but it makes me wonder whats wrong with the lads who sell them like second hand cars.
  17. Is There Any Need?

    I think the 3rd is something to do with a new strain of lepto.
  18. Passing Dogs On

    The lad who took her has been vouched for by a couple of mates and anyway, I know where he lives so I can keep an eye on things.... I have put a few to sleep when I've deemed it best, and I would have done it again if a better option hadn't come up
  19. I'm After A Couple Of Bushing Dogs

    I agree with bird. A dog which hunts silently is nearly always on terms with its quarry when it breaks cover, also guns/lurchers will kill game that's not actually being hunted by the flushers so when the hunted quarry breaks cover your guns/lurchers are often uprepared. But Its is good fun to a have a miniature hunt underway!
  20. Facebook

    I had a quick look, I am not interested in slagging they off apart from to say his books are worse than darcy's... but I do like the cover picture of him on the moon!
  21. Trail Cam At Lidi

    I bought one today, seems ok
  22. Grey Knocker Box Or Mk3?

    Ive used both with the ferrets, and once or twice taped a mark 3 collar to the terriers collar. And then forked out for a b+f....
  23. Strange Things Happen

    Checked an earth, bolted a fox..... WTF!
  24. Cheers Folks..

    Life is (unfortunately) change.... I have enjoyed reading your posts. I hope you keep writing them.
  25. Am looking to get a spare locator box.... I already have the pieps type, but I am wondering if the red box is better or should I stick with what I know? Thanks for reading
