You're a bit far from me otherwise I'd have loved to take you up on the offer. But I'm interested to know more about how they fly when you're doing hedgerows. I've been ferreting with Harris's a long time ago, but that was in fairly open country. If you're doing hedgerows I'm assuming a large percentage of the rabbits just run down the hedge. Can the birds strike at a rabbit in cover? Or will they only make a bid for any that break into the open?

if the bunnies don't break cover ,the birds will try and ambush them in the hedge ,there really turned on if they miss a few as you will know,but its not about catching every rabbit that bolts we like to watch the chase just as much , but flying them in cast makes it a bit easier for the birds striking in the cover ,1 strikes 1 waits its great to watch . that's why we need a bit of help ferreting lol cheers bri

      I have achallenging permission in North Essex near Sudbury . The owner wants rabbits cleared off it and I don't have the time to have a serious crack at it due to other commitments. I've tried live catch cage traps to no avail. Are there any snare/trap men or serious shootists that want a go? The owner will pay for good results.

      If any youngster, newcomer to ferreting would like to come out and join me and my team of pugs,lurchers in the field for hands on experience then pm me telling me a bit about yourself, as we all know permission is hard to get, especially for those just getting into our kind of pest control, bring your own pugs if you like. As above this is for folk starting ferreting in my area, atb j
