    You could have blown me over with a feather tonight lads. My Dragon said, you might be right and build some raised beds and grow your own again but in the garden this time, rather than a plot again, as she wants to try and avoid the supermarkets for now. I am tempted as the home grown fruit and veg` is in a different world for flavour, coupled with the wild meat we often cook.

    Went down the on the ribble again today but only stayed a couple of hours because my waders sprang a bad leak when I went waist deep . Don’t know what was worse , the cold water when I was in there or looking like I’d pissed myself when I took them off back at the car in the farm yard

    We’ve been shooting a dairy farm for best part of two months now on the rats .Weve had 543 to date plus this evenings 41 so 584 .Some big uns here too Farmer had asked if I’d look round for a fox that had taken a few ducks recently so stuck the .223 in as well .While I was looking for the fox ,mate stayed back and carried on ratting . Wasnt long before a fox came up a fence line to the duck enclosure and I shoot it about 160 paces .Small vixen which fitted with farmers description . Took it to the dairy for the farmer to see in the morning .Put the .223 away and got the air gun back out to join my mate .Let him know where I was and set off reverse route to him . Out the back of one of the sheds I saw a fast moving creature running towards the barns in and out tractor ruts in the thermal . Didnt twig at first ,thought it was a ferret but looking through the pard I saw it was a big old mink . Have to say,the excitement level was up a bit and I felt the gun wobble as I followed it closer and closer . Got this under control ,gave it a soft mouth squeak and it immediately changed course for me .They are bloody fast when your trying to follow then in the nv and I had to keep checking with the thermal where it was .When it was about 20 yards away on the concrete yard ,I scuffed my foot a bit and it stopped long enough for a shot .Hit it in one eye and out the other ,stone dead where it fell .Hw 100 first Showed my mate and we both agreed how lucky was it it had stopped for just long enough to shoot it .

    Horses for courses again. I've had, and wouldn't want again, dogs that smash themselves to bits for the sake of a rabbit. I'd much sooner they pull up on the odd one entering cover than put themselves out of action for months by trying to be a dare devil. Other people obviously see it differently but that's my take on it.

    Woman on t.v. jist said there's different forms of it (strains) and 3 weeks intensive care for the worst strain. If that's the case and people can get thay intensive care.there will be civil unrest. 1 thing I would say is that all the healthcare workers and nhs staff who are stepping upto the plate.should have there wages upped big time after this. They are the real heroes in all this. I take my hat off to them all..

    A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there was sex after death.Their biggest fear was that there was no after-life at all.After a long life together, the husband was the first to die.True to his word, he made the first contact: "Sue..........Sue" "Is that you, George?" " Yes, I've come back like we agreed. ""That's wonderful !? What's it like? "" Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again.Then it's more sex until late at night.I catch some much-needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again" " Oh, George, are you in Heaven?...... "No, I'm a rabbit in Hampshire."

    It's a fair bit deadlier than flu mate .... some stats around 83 of 10,000 over 65s die from influenza this corona is around 1 in to 100 or 1% ish, Italy has lost 350+ just today so far...personally I think we need to take this one serious.... at the moment your chances of getting it are still slim but that can change very quickly.

    well to be honest and looking back 30 odd year and just breeding workers I wasnt really in control you're often end up breeding worker to worker sometimes because breeding what you had left alive to breed that summer, I've bred stuff for blood and it's worked often it's based on faith

    This season I haven't done alot of hunting but over christmas I managed a night out lamping followed by a days ferreting. I invited a friend along who's bringing on his bedlington. I took bud, the pup I bred who's now 5 year old. We had a decent night catching 7 rabbits and missed a few aswell. Bud was rushing his chances and the rabbits where giving him a good run. All in all it was a good night and the ferreting was a good day aswell. I'm editing that and it will be ready next week. I hope you enjoy the video. Thankyou

    I've found just the opposite! In the twenty years I've used them only had to chase them up once. Always found them very helpful and my area rep is great, will help In any way he can. I have tried the other companies but found their baits lacking in quality. Out of interest who are you going to use?

    The reason Rambo is in most pedigrees is he was thought of as something special by people desperate to have that elusive, exceptional animal a "genuine earth dog Bedlington". The fact the dog was shit didn't seem to matter, dreamers and fools are common in all walks of the dog world, the Bedlington crew seem to attract them like flies to shit though.

    I've carried medium sized munty bucks in a large game back over my shoulder: helps if you gut them first as that makes up a lot of their weight. But as has been said, they do vary a lot in size, and the biggest I ever saw must have stood a good 24" at the shoulder, but that was a one off and it was very old and skinny. My old Deer/Grey caught them for fun in the open (big striding dog of 28") but they aren't that fast in the open. It's the way they can streak through apparently solid brambles without trying that really keeps them safe. Their speed in cover makes them almost uncatchable unless you have a similar sized and very fast dog that has no rules of self-preservation round cover. Lost a very good little bitch when she broke her back hitting a tree, and numerous other injuries from branches etc. Thick woodland, brambles, anywhere where there is plenty of ground cover and can hide them. Friend of mine has a 21" Beddy/Whippet/Grey and that has taken too many to count and never had a bad injury: she has the knack: acts like a bigger dog on roe: trips and goes straight on the throat. Clever little dog she is.

    I have had every type of deer that Britain has to offer right from chinkys to a red stag tell the truth I got most of them with my old coursing dog Rio... he drop a 186 in one season but I never had a red stag with him ..I have had everything but more roe deer than any thing else ...he did 8 Chinese water deer in one night we got 5 sika stags one night with him and beddy greyhound av done fallow bucks with them a done 7 that season with him and my old beddy cross but day time roe and fallow were my favourite thought sika easy were like catching sheep to tell the truth easy the just rolled over .... I was deer mad for a few years to tell the truth and ran them everywhere I could the best fallow I ever seen were in Portsmouth relly big rackets on them and the sika a done were down Dorset and done red up the lakes but that was with bull cross dog half cross

    A MONTANA COWBOY, A NATIVE AMERICAN AND A MUSLIM ARE WAITING FOR THEIR PLANE IN A SMALL MONTANA AIRPORT. THE MONTANA COWBOY LEANS BACK IN HIS CHAIR, CROSSES HIS BOOTS ON A MAGAZINE TABLE AND TIPS HIS BIG SWEAT-STAINED HAT FORWARD OVER HIS FACE. THE WIND OUTSIDE IS BLOWING TUMBLEWEEDS AROUND AND THE OLD WINDSOCK IS FLAPPING, BUT STILL NO PLANE COMES. THE AMERICAN INDIAN CLEARS HIS THROAT AND SOFTLY SPEAKS. "AT ONE TIME HERE, MY PEOPLE WERE MANY, BUT SADLY, NOW WE ARE FEW." THE MUSLIM STUDENT RAISES AN EYEBROW AND LEANS FORWARD, "ONCE MY PEOPLE WERE FEW," HE SNEERS, AND NOW WE ARE MANY. WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT IS?" THE MONTANA COWBOY SHIFTS HIS TOOTHPICK TO ONE SIDE OF HIS MOUTH, AND FROM THE DARKNESS BENEATH HIS STETSON SAYS IN A DRAWL : "THAT'S CAUSE WE AIN'T PLAYED COWBOYS & MUSLIMS YET, BUT I DO BELIEVE IT'S A-COMIN".
