'A bit of this n that'

Recommended Posts

Firstly i would just like to say to all the pompus, self righteous, stuck up their own arse moaners.

I do not give a rats arse, if in your opinions, protocol, procedure and perfection have not been adhered too.

I have had an absolutely FANTASTIC day out doing 'a bit of this an that' with friends, i am not forcing anyone else to do what i do or claiming i do it right.

So if anyone feels .....A waste of a bull cross, their sport is being shown in a bad light, illegal use of dogs, not proper ferreting dogs, heaven forbid more than one dog on a rabbit, or any of the other crap i hear......click the back button now and go and read something else. :D

 

 

It has been one of the best days, our first gradual start for the season. Out with my pal Woodga, his brother John and Ray.

A new place we have not been to before, Woodga had seen loads of rabbits sat out when passing and thought it would be a good place to ferret. Unfortunately he did not go and look up close. This place was literally covered in holes, i would say approx one every 5ft. :icon_eek:

Meant we did not have enough nets or ferrets, but it was fun watching the bolter's being chased..

Woodga's "Oooo he just missed that" face :D

My two don't get to go ferreting very often, and are a bit like kids in a sweet shop for a while till they calm down. So a bit of restraint is required till they get some wind out of their sails and settle into it.

Not Blaze though, he is an old pro at this game!

Shovel restraint did not always work though. :icon_redface::laugh:

They did calm down admirably later as you will see.

 

 

 

It sometimes worries me to know there are men like these in charge of powerfull guns :laugh:

Snooping around old buildings. I love to imagine what it must have been like, and how hard it must have been in a one up one down in the middle of no-where.
