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
