    Got some new nets

    Just a quick post I got some new purse nets from a very good good chap on this site netmaker Paul much appreciated bud and couldn’t resist to take them out so took the day off work today and done some tricky burrows under a couple of willow trees no long nets just testing out the new purse nets great day missed a heap hidden pop holes in the long grass so lost a lot but very impressed with the new kit.cheers again bud definitely recommend your nets and I’ll have a few boys wanting some in the near future so here’s the results

    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

    I’d be Keen

    Hi lads and ladies I was having a few brews with some like minded hunters tonight and this topic came up? I know there can’t be any ”graffic content” so I don’t expect people to post unless were allowed to on how most of you clean”gut” and process your rabbits.
  22. garbs

    I’d be Keen

    Yep.If I’m far from my car it works well to stop them from being fly blown but for most part I gut them and than straight in the cooler just was wondering how you boys go about it
  23. garbs

    I’d be Keen

    we were just curious I do process a fair few rabbits every week and I have my ways which by most part I learnt from some very knowledgeable and very helpful Airgun hunters wayyyy back in the day especially on warm days”push gut “works for me .hate to say it they were from the barmy army at the time still friendly lads just keen to see what you fellas do?
