  1. My point is that running dogs on badgers is bad for dogs , and ultimately bad for the image of running dogs . But we don’t need to worry about it do we , because it’s banned anyway. I’m someone who has been involved with dogs a long time and I find it , if I’m honest , barbaric . I’ve got no problem killing thing’s. I do it daily. But I think I am humane . I use the right tools for the job . If you think it’s fine , crack on , you’ve got your moral compass, I’ve got mine . I apologise if I’ve come across as judgemental , I also realise that it might be a case of th

  2. This is only my opinion, but a badger is not a running dogs quarry... a dog does not need to have running dog attributes to catch and dispatch a badger... I have no care for what other people hunt or do, but we all know the type of dog required for that type of work...and it ain't a dog meant for running down game... I personally love watching a dog run, I.like the whole getting to grips with an animal which can be its equal when running... once that animal is caught it needs to be dispatched quickly.... if that animal is too good and escapes, then all credit to it and that is what

  3. I agree with JDhunting about the upside down justice system that gives more punishment for this than peados or burglary. But there is an underlying sentiment on this thread that the only crime they committed was getting caught. I’ve been involved with terriers and running dogs my whole life , I was one of the first in my area to have bull crosses back in the mid 80s .So I know a bit about it . There is cruelty involved with running dogs and badgers. You can’t eat a badger and it’s a powerful animal that takes some killing . A pig is not going to outrun your dog s

  5. Jmho, and as we have been harping on about in the other thread, blood matters and you don’t get decent blood unless lads throw stuff at dogs. Its alright have your nice sensible, steady old thing but keep breeding that to other nice sensible, steady old things and pretty soon there’s f**k all dog left imho......now some folks may not like what other lads do or even their methods but you need them because without them there wouldn’t be a dog left in the world worth feeding. We would all be down the pet shop buying them dog Elvis outfits and parading them round the park ! Lon

  6. Its not difficult to see that the government are leaning on huge corporations to preach diversity and tell people they dont have a right to their own opinion but unlike the Premier League this Sainsburys mob are actually coming out and saying it as opposed to sliding it through while nobody is in the building like the Premier League are doing....being threatened and told how we should think by a jumped up shopkeeper will undoubtedly see a reduction in footfall for them but im not really against the sentiment of racial segregation....im happy for black people to have a space of their own away f

  8. I think these comments, copied and pasted from the comments section of the video clip, sums the current situation up nicely: I never cared: -I never cared if you were “gay“ until you started shoving it in my face, and the faces of our children. -I never cared what colour you were, until you started blaming my race for your problems. -I never cared about your political affiliation until you started to condemn me for mine. -I never cared where you were born until you wanted to erase my history and blame my ancestors for your current problems. -I never cared if you were well-off or

  9. We lurcher lads can be a hypocritical, judgmental lot, can't we ? LOL ! Ive allways had dogs for sport and enjoyment, with the added bonus of putting some very nice food in the freezer. Ive never had any time for badgers; you can't eat them, they can't run very fast, they tear up your dogs and lead to big vet bills, and in the case of these lads, result in some very serious, and, in my mind, over the top punishment. BUT, what others do for THEIR sport, is THEIR business, not mine ! As for "bringing our sport into disrepute ", give me a break, I've been in the sport well ove

  10. Yesterday ,after doing a few chores l set out with a dozen nets ,a ferret and the dog. I had no thoughts or even a chance of a big bag but lt's October ; the time of year when a Gentleman's thoughts turn to rabbits. I could say that the dog tracked along the hedgerow and eventually gave a mark under a bramble patch but l won't. That would be a hackneyed old clichè! Anyway we found some holes ,one of which interested the dog immensely. Stealthily l set the nets, taking care not to alarm the inhabitants of the bury. No, that is not only another ferreting clichè, it's a lie.

  12. with the conditions being near enough perfect tonight except for the fact it was like daylight because of the big old moon hiding behind the cloud i decided to try me luck with the lamp. Got to my spot I had in mind only to find a lead and fresh dog shit at the first gateway and no rabbits in the field I decided to go somewhere else. My new destination i know holds a few rabbits but they are not the easiest to catch on the best of nights, so I just walked the boundaries and mopped a few up. Done a little better than I expected and finished on 23 with a mix of between no retrieve and

Daft or not it's more than some nonces get more than practically every house burglar could ever imagine getting, more than what you'd get for jumping someone and stamping them half to death, more than what you'd get for most crimes for basically doing something humans are programmed to do. Sick of this country and its upside down "justice" system.

  15. Just a wild throw at stuff . I don’t know if any of you follow gallelio closely. But it’s the death knell of Dog based field sports imho. lincs is quite easily the worst place for coursing , always has been and it seem they have their shit together . They have quietly grown this brand of policing it with forces using anpr cameras , patrols , drones , helis , quads and a massive drive in the local community , going to schools , having the lacs , the wildlife trusts , the nfu, neighbourhood watch etc all working in the same page . Look how the fen lads are portrayed in the media now

  16. Wilf , it’s not genetic engineering , they import a pit bull from Eastern Europe, it does the rounds , they sling it over greyhounds or any other bitch in season , they are not working dog Messiahs . Most of the pups will do the business to one level or another. The trick is to get a dog that can work with other dogs , most are a bloody liability the owners family, to other dogs and livestock . Why we actually need dogs like this is a good question, but hey , each of us to their own sport .

  17. A badger isn't a running dogs job it's a terriers and just like it's not a lurchers job to sort end of a dig out that part comes down to you the amount of damage footage showing the above as done will make sure that terrier work as we once knew it will never return

  18. There has always been that “thing” with the young dog lads . Parading dogs at shows with half a jaw . Putting dogs in situations where they wouldn’t put themselves. Who’s dogs the hardest. It’s nonsense. They are nonsense.

  19. What ever your chosen sport it needs to be humane for dog and quarry and like sl when I was an 18 year old lad I had a different outlook but even then the dogs welfare was all ways put first because they were my pride and joy. Plenty of other ways to control badgers if it was ever allowed not that it will ever happen. But there numbers are now getting to nuisance levels around here so eventually some thing will happen

I’m looking at the birds and they are well tailed up and they have lost their juvenile feathers on there heads . Got to get pegs put out soon . Already got the drives planned . Someone asked me if I was nervous ? I said “ask me in December “.

  22. It's been interesting reading the amount of interest in American politics on THL especially considering that only 5, or so, contributors could actually vote on it but I get what you're saying, and agree to a point. The Atlantic lens which either side are viewing each other has put some entertaining perspectives on some serious issues. We're just trying to figure out how to get the guns over to you so you can do Brexit properly!

  28. I've always believed that the matching of dogs is more humane than hunting certain quarry with teeth. At least the former has two willing combatants of equal size. Now I know some will think I'm sadistic thinking like that but to me I'm speaking perfect sense.

  29. Well, it’s an interesting conversation lads. As I said in the other thread I had a dog I liked and I knew what he was.......but most importantly I also knew what he wasn’t and I never once said “well, you don’t need those things anyway so he is a proper thing” He was a dog with limits ! ........and I didn’t decry other lads who’s dogs never had those limits to make my dog out to be something he wasn’t. C.Green summed it up perfectly the other night when he wrote “I start wondering about the dog if it takes stuff into the next field.......” People with that attitude will be

  30. If you want to put your runner on brock, by all means fill your boots. For me imo it's not hunting, it's more akin to fighting. If a dog fights a boar instead of holding or baying, it's gonna be a dead dog sooner rather than later. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean and you're just being pedantic

Lets face it.Its been illegal for the best part of 40years now and will remain so so going on about it on here is pointless and doing what they did is just plain f***ing stupid.Any lads that want to keep busy and fly under the radar wont be filming shit to stroke their pathetic egos and wont feel the need to discuss the right and wrongs of it on here either

  33. I've only owned one dog in 30 years that I was 100% sure had no quit in him, just keep throwing work at him and his tail would be up over his back wagging away he fcukin lived for it and was good at it, some dogs you ask yourself maybe I'm pushing it a bit to far but with that dog it never crossed my mind. Some dogs just have that something special about them and are definitely a rarity.

  34. I’d keep them away from shows for start off . Proper terrier men don’t need to show off . They keep to themselves, they don’t post shit on social media and get on with it by themselves in a low key way .

Maybe its just the terminology i cant get to grips with its like the fat kid at school trying to stop you from stealing his dinner money.....its not " a fight " just because you are swapping punches he just wants you to go away and leave him alone. I agree with Wilf if the dog kills quickly and efficiently its a good dog if it doesnt its not....anything else is simply down to choosing the right tools for the job.

  41. Telegram set auto destruct on, totally encrypted and nothing is stored after it deletes the msgs Anyone daft enough to film themselves taking brock on with dogs and then posting it online, deserves what comes. Harsh sentences, agreed however they knew the risks and thought they were smart.... well they weren't! Badgers are basically huge, mean, very angry ferrets. Putting a dog against them is a fight, not hunting imo.
