  7. Propercartridges 12 Bore Shells

    They are good Use his high speeds 32g 4.5 shot on pheasants As good as RC Sipe but £40/k cheaper George Young is based in Durham and is a character
  8. Clumber Spaniels? ?

    Yes they are slower than a springer or cocker but work in a nice methodical way and have a good nose so dont tend to miss much. Life would be boring if we all liked the same thing. Best thing is go and see some work and make your own decision.
  9. Clumber Spaniels? ?

    Your best bet would be to contact the working lumber spaniel society Look on their website it will give you some contact names etc and all will do the best to point you in the right direction. I went to Devon to loom at some over a weekend initially them to Wales to pick my pup up. There are some crackers out there just make sure you get from working lines and are tested Expect pups to be £750-£900 I believe
  10. How Many Packs

    Yes Jim Wing did die of cancer. The hunting at that time was a lot better than it is now, had more country to go at and with easier regulations to work on re stopping up and terrier work. We don't keep terriers now after an incident with the hunt pistol which led to an argument with the huntsman so we packed it in. Pics of my dads 2 terriers are on a thread in the terrier section asking for pictures of your favourite dogs. Does the name Andrew Ralli ring a bell with you Boy did we have some fun with him, he was as mad as a hatter. Now into my game shooting but would like a terrier but where I go the places are riddled with our striped friends with very little true fox earths. Archi
  11. Favourite Terrier Pic

    Not the best of pics probably taken 20 years ago The scruffy Russell (Dougal)on left is out of a Russell bitch from an old terrier an from the West Norfolk and from a dog from the Cottesmore Hunt that supposedly had a bit of Sealyham in him. Anyway he would stay all day and never ever failed and was always the go to dog if the youngsters couldn't make it. Worked from 12 months of age without a mistake although has nipped the odd person when trying to remove him after breaking through Was a good bayer and could be worked every week, hardly took any punishment. Many a brush tip he has pulled off if they were arse end on. The other one came from a private pack via the kennel huntsman from the Monmouthshire who used to be whip at the WNFH and I think had some patterdale in him from what we were told. He was good and I remember him bolting 3 from 1 land drain one after the other. With his legs was good in the bale stacks as well. He was a bayer as well but a bit more forceful than Dougal. Do miss the digging game now

  13. How Many Packs

    lutra lutra Castle acre that could well of been Olsens or Wards land with some marshy ground in the low just off the main road. They would have probably drawn the chalk put at Newton by Castle acre, always held Massingham was probably Brunns land I would have thought. Yes they used to meet in Fakenham market place on Boxing Day and the this moved to the race course or at Raynham hall which is only a stones throw from Yes used to hunt Mileham, was a large square wood that used to hold called The Horsewood which was accessed from a long concrete drive. I remember a time when a terrier was to ground and the old grey box he had didn't work so there he was trying to pick up the signal with his hearing aid. Whether it worked that way or he was able to hear feel anything through the ground who knows. It wasn't a deep one luckily. Litcham Warren was a hunt owned long strip of woodland with foxes often going away towards Mileham it across the road to Stanfield. We used to look after a little shoot at Kempstone which virtually joined up to Litcham Warren and was always a good fox holding ground with regular finds in the Piggeries. 20-30 years ago was around the time when I was following and doing the terriers with dad He used to do the Saturdays, and then later on Wednesdays as well. Monday's were covered by a couple of other people. So I think we must have met along the way
  14. How Many Packs

    Lutra lutra When did you hunt with the west Norfolk as this is my local pack and when I first started to follow Jim Wing used to drive the terriers about We may have met then as my dad did the terriers and countryman work when Ian Higgs, James Taylor etc hunted hounds They are a poor shadow of a pack with a poor huntsman and dwindling country now Archi
