Definetely less hassle pre-fecking ignorant ban,but there was enough hassle about then to keep lads in fines and strife,you just never risked the loss of vehicle,licence and mutt,a fine was a minor inconvenience,after a few of them the risk of imprisonment was miniscule,at a £5 spot a week it took me over 3 years to pay off my early poaching fines,what a detterent,now with the chance of losing dog,licence or vehicle,i ve nothing but admiration for the more testing of lads/lasses in the game now.

Exchange and mart,now some lads are showing their age,every ferret came via a train from Norfolk,i saved months for one,it arrived at the local station and the station master knocked on my parents door informing us of its arrival,i rushed up put it in the required hessian sack,the required mode of transport for ferrets then,straight into the fields and down the first hole I encountered,hours later I gave up on its emergence from its lair,pater returned and weaved his magic and retrieved my prized mustelid,I probably spent more hours waiting for that useless weasel than accounting for the required protein we needed then,fecking Norfolk ferret traders and youthfull ignorance.
