Hessian bags compared to carry box

Recommended Posts

Anyone use a hessian bag rather than a ferret box I do a lot of walking for miles between warrens and lumpren all the kit round turns into me regretting wearing anything more than shorts and a vest just wondered if anyone else using the bags as was gonna get one and save the box for easier trips

Eh up Cushty. Nice to hear from you. Been a while. How's the Corby Candle? I remember when we used bank bags which were not hessian but did the job ok. Fit nicely in the pocket. Jok.

Make yourself a smallish box to go in the bottom of a rucksack be alright for a single bitch ferret. Hope your keeping alright mush 👍🏻

There's no protection for the ferret in a bag and you can sit on a box and keep your bottom off the wet ground

Used a pillow case tied piece string to it and tied it inside my coat befor now...I don’t go ferreting pissed up so not going fall face first and forget to put my hands down....

 

to to be honest I don’t think I’ve ever in my life fell face first and not put my hands down to stop me 

If going somewhere you have permission tho just use a light weight plastic wheelbarrow. You’d be surprised how light it makes a job

You put ferrets in  a big burrow I've time to sit on the box  and have a coffee before they work deep enough to bolt rabbits  lol

Can't see the hardship of carrying a small ferret box,a sack would be more annoying with them clambering around inside,and as said if you slip over on steep ground which often happens.
