My 6 month old hob bolted his first at the weekend. I had been carrying him around with an old jill waiting for the right spot. Which was a nice little 4 holer 
I have a dog so got a nice a mark so pretty perfect situation

After  a little hesitation in he went then a few seconds later rumble rumble out comes the rabbit with the ferret right behind

The ferret is quite a steady good sized fella so the time just seemed right. Great fun starting the young stock off

Mine are 6 months old and I took them both out on Friday and Sunday. Both bolted and worked the warrens very well. My Hob was over keen (basically wouldn’t come back to me and kept on going to ground when I got anywhere near him). But the Jill was steady as you like. A little hesitant at first but bolted 3 rabbits and was happy to come back to me frequently.

Couldnt be happier with them

I try to let them walk clear of the burrow before picking them up when young, later on they come when called, well  most.
