  1. Despite being born deaf,...my dear Honey made old bones, and defied all the odds in doing so. Sadly, today her time was up, and at the amazing age of fifteen, the Grim Reaper came to call.. We had some good walks out together and although things were often traumatic,...I do believe that she made the most of a difficult situation. Another one bites the dust , eh.. Part and parcel of the hunting life I suppose... RIP Honey..

  2. Hello All, Had a short chat with Snoop earlier and unfortunately Razor left us last week. This special dog was born on 4th Sept 2008. Provided one man with 6 long hard seasons performing at the highest level. He has sired some great dogs and his name lives on through them. I know there are a lot of you on here running dogs with his blood so thought it was right thing to do and share the sad news. Rest in peace this most special of dogs. RIP Razor

  3. Had the old deer/grey cross Lima put down today. 12 1/2 year old, retired her at 10. She had mammary tumours for a while, which didn't seem to bother her, but it spread to her lungs and I didn't want to see her suffer so the deed was done. First cross deer/greys seem to have gone well out of fashion these days, and are derided by some, but were the go to dogs back before the Saluki crosses came along, up here at least ! Lima was a decent bitch, all round, considering she was 29" and around 75 lb. She lamped and took daytime hare, fox and roe; had her first go on the wh

  4. I've been busy the last few months with work.but just before I started back in work SheepChaser travelled an 8hr journey to bring me a young bull x bitch for my lad.. And today I met up with Mc Hull who also travelled to meet me halfway to gift me a young bitch pup from a litter he bred.. Can't fault them both.and neither would accept a single £ from me and considering today's inflated price for dogs the pair of them are into working the dogs and not making money from them.. Thank you very much SheepChaser and Mchull I hope to repay the favour one day to both of you.. Chee

  6. Went out tonight with just the pup, not the best conditions, warm still and ambient light from a nearby industrial estate but the rabbits obliged lol. First rabbit, jumped about 10 yards away, he never saw it , second one, good run and put 3 turns into and unlucky. Third one, a squatter, took it out the seat two laps of the field later and he dropped it at my feet, well crunched Fourth one, he ran it into the hedge and it popped back out and he had it, couple of small circles and he brought it back, almost to hand. Had a few more handy ones but he wasn't looking d

  8. Today I officially retired my dog Brian from the foxing World. First of all I would like to thank busher for gifting me this fantastic animal all them moons ago .for that I am forever grateful and he knows anything I breed he is welcome to one . Quick story on Brian. Brian started hunting at around 4 months old ,and seem to take to everything in his stride. Not really taking much training in anything he was shown .I initially never got him for earth work ,as we had other terriers for that job.but again he took to bolting Charlie's for fun .he bolted his first fox aged 11 months .,self en

  9. I had a lovely walk up along the river bank this morning, around 6.30 am this morning, and I was thinking about my first post I typed on Mother &son, I apologised, to the fellow who originally posted, for going off topic, it was my first post on here for at least two and half years, and there was a sarcastic remark made by a guy who goes by the name of BIG RON, I would bet he is a member who has a couple of subscriptions, and I have my suspicions who it came from, One bitch dog came to mind, Her name was Tinker a red fawn only 23" this was back in the day late 60s early 70s grey

I know many of you on here will have seen my sidekick Ruby the Pomeranian alongside my running dog's on many of my post's over the year's,sadly I had to have her put to sleep back on August 17th of this year at 15 year's of age,even 2 weeks before she died we were up hiking in the Highlands of Scotland in the Arrochar Alps..sadly the old girl went downhill quite rapidly & it was a very hard day for me when I took her to the vet's as she was my shadow,where I went,she went that's just how it was,they said she hadn't been in the vets since 2006 when she had her jabs for parvo/distemper so sh

  13. I,m still here when I can borrow my daughters internet, but my life worry’s have somewhat changed, it’s all about having enough water, wood and gas to keep us warm and fed, woke up to this today ( the roof is red ) which was even more beautiful as I got the central heating on the boat working yesterday after 8/9 years since it last worked, was quoted 2k to fix it, so done it myself for £10 of parts and a couple of days of my time, also taking the dogs out for 2/3 good walks a day as I don’t have a garden now, so life is full and busy but still loving it

  14. Me and Ella decided to have a 3 night hunting trip up north. It worked out we would come back on my birthday, ideal for me to go and see my kids. We took three lurchers (Bud, Pip and Trudy) and my two young ferrets (Big rich and Titch). We started by lamping saturday night, conditions were decent but we struggled getting close enough for slips. We struggled on and caught 7. It was getting on for 4am when we had finished lamping and we had a late start the following day. Anyway we pitched up the van on the first day and then headed off out ferreting for a few hours. We caught anoth

  18. Ger was an absolute gentlemen. We were digging buddies up until he got sick and sadly he had to hand over the working dog as he wouldn't be able to manage him. That broke his heart. We used to have some craic out with the dogs and also when involved with IWTF business. Ger had a great sense of humour and also insight and wisdom of the dog game and every day life. He would study things down to the fine detail and always had a different angle on things. Always making you rethink what you thought you knew. A proud Corkman and of the White Dogs we worked, he invested huge effort into protecting Te

Wasn't sure where exactly to post this but figured this would be as good as any place lol.Was chatting with someone about this and they said next time I do some fence work I should make a post on it. Apparently y'all don't use barbed wire or have to work in a border line jungle with half feral cattle so guess it's interesting. Idk it's every spring for me Anyhow cows managed to find a break last week and since most of these fences are 40+ years old and over grown in most places breakers can be anywhere so only way to find them is walk.

Grabbed the rifle, rod and pup and headed south to my adoptive county and home of another very good mate and his family. The mackerel were well and truly ‘in’. The water was fizzing with them and bait fish, the bait fish lining the shingle for miles! I had an evening and morning stalking too. A lot of rutting with grunts resonating through the downs. Took a sorrel (probably) that evening and then got on something a bit bigger in the morning. Nothin

  25. Can the mods set a rule here that ANYBODY that uses another members wife or kids as a form of insult gets a weeks ban and if they do it again they get banned for life ... also the post is immediately removed. There are people on here that have lost wives and children and I know of other members who’s children have gone through horrendous times. abusing somebodies wife or kids is fukcing bang out of order and if this was a pub they would be sparked clean out. As that can’t happen I believe the above is the only other option.

  27. Just took the boy for a quick shine around just the 1 field. He's only 4 and a half and since last summer started showing a bit of a interest in hunting. He likes to go moleing generally but today asked if he could go lamping. As its half term we ventured out. One happy lad. He started off holding my hand, once we caught the bunny he was happy to carry that and no longer hold my hand lol.

The young man holding up the hare with the striped trousers on is my best mate Gary,during our teens we were inseparable. Always out rabbiting,ferreting,lamping,shooting,fishing you get the picture,and if not in the field..in the pub. Gary found god and became a minister and did tremendous charity work. Sadly Gary was an anti vaxer,and was hospitalised with pneumonia covid and put in an induced coma and placed on

Just went over backpacking originally, but after drinking all me cash in the first month ended up with a job on this cattle property in Queensland. idea was to just save abit of cash to go off partying again. Ended up loving it so much I stayed for nearly 2 year and met my now wife. Along side the station work we were hunting and shooting pretty much daily, the place was lifting with Roos and pigs an I bloody loved it. Anyway there was a local lad that worked on the property next door who had a pac

  33. Been out for an hour tonight, after 2 blanks I’ve waited for the right conditions and I chose tonight, slight drizzle and wind blowing and now we’re up and running, 3rd time lucky. I know any Lurcher should catch a rabbit but I’m proud of my dog he bought them back alive, near enough straight back to me (little bit of showing off from him) Praised him to high heaven, I must admit after I took them he wanted to get at them again before they went in me ruck sack I told him a stern leave it but he tried it, I suppose to be expected at first? The dogs 11 months old next week so very early days

  35. Morning all, I don’t come on here as often as I used to but thought I’d drop on and share some images from my current trip to Spain. I am out here hunting and photographing various working dogs for a fortnight all over the country. On Thursday I hunted with various Rehalas on one of the most important monteria in the country. Throughout the day we were always in full view of the sanctuary de la Virgen de la Cabeza, patron saint of hunting and as such the area was sacred and meant a lot to the hunters present. We took around 25 red deer, 20 fallow deer, 15 boar, 3 foxes and 2 mouf

  36. Unfortunately true... Facts are,.. whether a man and his running dawg are ultra polite and show the utmost respect,.. the Farming community (and the UK Law itself),.. will not allow the pursuit of Hares with gazehounds, to flourish... So, as a one time rural rebel myself, I can understand hunting men who say, 'feck you' and continue to indulge in their passion. Such characters feel as though they have nothing to lose,.so they behave in the manner that they suppose they are expected to behave in.. In truth, they work darn hard at playing the part... Personally, I will alw

  39. One of the lads that works for me has been asked by the farmer he rents his cottage from to make use of a wood and lake that he has that is going to waste. So we have been down getting it sorted and ready to use. I will probably spend more time down there than in my house. Lake has got some real nice carp in it and there’s a chalk stream that runs along the back of the lake. Apart from running water it’s got everything you need. A place for eating a place for a fire pit a pizza oven and a compost toilet.

  45. Had an invite up to the Scottish hills from Northernlite to bolt a few rabbits with the ferrets to his young ACD cross. Couple of hours travel and we met up around 7 am and were on the hills by 7:30. I took my 5 1/2 month old deer/grey along just for the education and experience, those hill are no place to be running a leggy, heavy young pup, but she had a good walk, seen some sheep, no drama, and got a bit fur in her mouth. The ACD x is a joy to watch, only young herself, but very sharp around the holes, marks well, catches more than she misses, and retrieves well. A
