Excellent Kiwi.

It seems you have some great Dog work going on there. Some fine looking Pheasants too.

Are they all in a Wild state out there or are they reared to some extent?

Regards
SS :thumbs:

I believe ferrets were introduced into the wild there to control the rabbits, (which were also introduced) but ended up decimating the native fauna instead, and became a pest in their own right. :thumbs:

the ferret,stoat and weasel are all wild as you say bought here to control the rabbit.
stoats are more common than ferrets but ferrets are common up in the tussock country, they don't look much like a tame ferret and are pretty fast.
season starts in may ends in august. with a few extra seasons on swan,geese and shelduck.
