    Ferret disorientated ?

    I can’t say I’ve seen it as bad as you described but a few years ago I was living on a property which had a lot of wasps on it and being attracted to meat one of mine coped a sting sent him a bit loopy for a few days but recovered fully with no side effects.maybe an insect bite???

    How to tell a good ferret

    Just my opinion but I can’t have ferrets that kill and sit on a dead rabbit I mostly hunt with gills cause most off my properties are either hard as rock or sandy warrens and I find my gills work better than my bucks and much like most Aus properties there’s little to no chance of digging them out unless you have a excavator near by as long as there bolting rabbits and not staying down to long seems to me like you’ve got some sound ferrets mate

    Good Day Out

    I had planned to head out and run some off my young ferrets on a property near by but the owner didn’t get a chance to remove some problem black berries and ink weed where some of the the bigger burrows are in so plan B grabbed a few youngsters and headed to a property an hour from my place that I hadn’t done for so time a mixture of open cattle paddocks and some Ferny grassy areas around the homestead upon arrival there were bunnies everywhere and can honestly say I have never seen them that thick in there for a few years so headed out and did 2 large burrows and a few smallish ones with the long nets and a scattering of purse nets.i was really happy as was the owner with the haul and my young guns worked really good and ended up being a really great day out.

    Ferret problem

    Agree with the above I’m in Aus my Gills have had kits this past 6months and most have battle scars from mating some males are nastier than others when it comes to doing the deed but that’s the way it is in the ferret world but the gills recover quick
