OK fergie here goes :thumbs: a stop net used as it says to stop fleeing rabbits,usually passed through a hedge and beyond,can be put in a clearing or anywhere to stop them escaping, length can be from 3yds up to 25yds or more
Gate nets usually the width of a farm gate,they are draped over the bottom of the gate and can held by stones (on the gate) which will be dislodged when a hare or rabbit hits the netand gets entangled
Poke nets are generally large purse nets with pegs at both ends or sides depending how you set the net
This basically is the simplest description of the 3 nets :thumbs: you asked about

Stop net is just a short long net, the sort of thing you might set up through a hedgerow.....gate net is traditionally a square meshed net set up on a gate(not being funny)for netting hares....poke net is a purse net with two drawstrings so you've got a peg at each end.......selvedge mesh is basically a double knitted mesh on the edges of a net where it takes most wear :thumbs:

Thats the way I'd do a poke net :thumbs: Longnetter mentioned 2drawcords IMHO 1 drawcord with a peg at each end is the way to go

Could you please tell me, what advantage two draw cords would give over a net with one draw cord?

I've never used them myself but seen them placed on bigger awkward holes.I've also seen fox nets made this way.I really can't see the advantage.P1

With sliders on it and closing from each end its supposed to close faster but with a properly set net there would only be miliseconds in it .And setting two pegs for every net ?

A poke net has a drawcord just like a pursenet,but instead of beinng tied to the ring at the top of the net it passes through it and then is attached to another peg.Having two pegs allows a bigger net to close quicker than if it had a peg at one end.Poke nets can be used to cover large holes,around tree roots at the base of trees etc.poke nets can also be used propped on a couple of small poles to cover runs through hedges or at the bottom of ditches.It is always handy to have a couple in the bottom of your net bag.

None taken :laugh: Balancing stones has never been a problem in the lime stone land, as for noise, what can I say ' keep the wind in your face' that way the game is running down wind :thumbs:
These Pictures have more stones then I would normally use, just to show You.
