Haven't been putting much in the blog lately even though I've been out and about quite a lot, had a mooch around some hedgerows with nobby, the ferrets killed more than us, just didn't want to bolt, a stoat fell to the gun, the farmer keeps chickens and this little mustelid bitch was just down the hedgeline from them, she was carrying a few ticks mind... Last week I've had a few nights ratting around some farms, and some nights out lamping, so all in all not too bad.. I'll get the NV out this we

Nobby had a bit of ferreting with a farmer and his son using shotguns, managed 20 but if they all ended up in the bag , should of had about 35, but its all part of the game.... Some area's were heavily wooded with limited view on the bolting rabbits... Good day by all accounts..

I was out today setting a few snares with nobby.... Later On I decided to have a few hours out lamping, Martin met up with me (dixyhmr) and we checked a few farms, conditions weren't ideal the land was sodden, and rabbits weren't out in great numbers although we managed a few and a nice dog fox...

Me and butler had a look out today, checked an earth for fox activity, nothing in at the moment, but dropped another buck this afternoon, this one had just lost his head gear as the stumps were very fresh... Had a look around lamping later on, and called a fox in using the hare distress call, then shot a few rabbits/hares for butlers dog grub...

Had a look out on one of my farms last light with Nobby to see if I could drop a buck before the season ends, got an average buck down with a kneck shot...   Stayed out later...to lamp a few fields, rabbits were few and far between and the ones that were out, were gone sharpish, wind was non existant, cloudless night, the temperatures are dropping now.... Shot a nice big dog fox also, went down with a 58grainer to the head...
