Unless you are thinking of poaching you will need to get some permission first start knocking some landowners doors and see if you can get some permission
and as mick1212 said its a waste of time at the moment far to many young around wait till about end of august good luck with finding some ground mate

Its places like that where the in-expierienced can get into trouble. Yep, vast area of sand dunes honeycombed with rabbits but a nature reserve and a death trap for ferrets. ;)

Always thought poaching with ferrets isn't very effective and asking for trouble. If you've 20 purse nets set and a couple of ferrets to ground you can hardly slip away if you see a gamekeeper coming and looking unconspicious ain't easy either. Best get persmission.
