Lifting The Ban

Recommended Posts

Imo the ban will never be lifted. There would be uproar from anti's, lots of bad publicity etc. And tbh as controversial as it sounds, it maybe a good thing. those who are committed and serious willl carry on regardless, the ban stops a lot of idiots. The people who need to stay active will, And will keep a low profile and maybe that's for the best the way the world is with Facebook, mobile phones etc!! Just my two pence

I agree with you in that respect but on the other hand I feel hunting is our right not to be taken away and nobody should be allowed to judge and say who can and can't hunt.

I know what your saying, and it's a sad reflection of the way this country treats it's working class. However I do think hunters have a fairly low profile at the moment (in a lot of places, not all) it may not be the worst thing that working dogs doesnt get put under the microscope again. The grass is always greener, and in my opinion perhaps it's better that hunters/ hunting dogs are not the focus of the mainstream media for now. It's not ideal, and I do feel sorry for coursing boys and boys working hounds etc. however things could be a lot worse if hunting is put back in the limelight!! As I said above, unfortunately there are too many idiots who give the papers/anti's ammunition and give the real grafters a bad name.

Better to stay in the shadows than shine the light where you may not want others looking. For now anyway.

Cant see a return to the days before the ban, there is no doubt that some sort of fox control will be needed, but probably by licensed pest controllers, riding to hounds is a pretty innefective way of control, lets face it its just a ritualised way of spending a day out on the horse. The use of lurchers would be a far more effective way of control, but would probably cause a public outcry, and as said could have bad implications further down the line. Unfortunately coursing, probably the fairest of all fieldsports and the most misunderstood took the brunt when the axe fell. I often wonder how many of the fox hunting set would be willing to back up the coursing fraternity, my recollections of a lot of them in pre ban days were that a lot of them viewed the coursing boys as little more than a bunch of oiks. YIS KIC :hmm:

How many lurcher owners have been prosecuted under the hunting ban, as opposed to "trespass in pursuit"?

Most take the easy option and plead guilty to the tresspass option , the hunting with dogs is easily beatable with a good legal representative the first thing they have to prove you deliberately slipped your dog, and then they have to prove that the bird that you were flushing to didnt actually f**k off if you are on permission :laugh:
