ANOTHER DALES TRIP, watership down
Posted 06 October 2011 - 02:13 pm
by seeing both together that night it was plain to see wich was suited to that land.
i bred the poachers lamping bred dog to my old coursing bred bitch,, to get some duel purpose dogs,, well that was the idea,, not all of them have turned out what i hoped for,, mine certainly isnt . but thats breeding.
Just about sums things up does that Tomo? I have Venus's sister Swift and she is an absolute cracking bitch,steady as a rock,retrieves like a gundog,pace a plenty,day or night she ain't bad at all BUT i have ran her on similar terrain to this although not quite as bad and she done ok but the collie x Don just totally outgunned her,she ran as though she was on high heels lol..if the bunnies were in paddocks then she looked the bees knees..i'm sure we all strive for the ONE dog capable of doing it all and running on all types of land?..i've been in this game a long time and hand on heart i'm yet to see that one dog let alone own one ..it's no good being an electrician and going to work with a saw is it?...tools for the job in hand is the way to succeed imo?

i havent kept a dairy for 2 years,,, so cant give you any new numbers........last time i kept a dairy i took about 2000 rabbits that season, but i couldnt tell you how many came from the dales, or how many each individual dog cought,, also some of that 2000 came from ferreting
Thats alright mate, I was only looking for a rough figure. Thats good going, especially at £2.20 each! lol.
Something to aspire to.

At least you're covering your expenses pal! Locally you just wouldnt get half the numbers you do in the dales, need a fast dog round this way. Do or die merchants are what make catches on this land as you know. Keep up the posts of the dales and your more local lamping (might make the rest of us feel a bit less inferior http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... )..
You can't catch what ain't there matey..just keep on doing what your doing and enjoy your mutts.ATB Andy.
