  1. just been looking at all the recent posts so nobody must be getting out on the woodies (must be too cold for summer shooters) all old pics from a while back even frozen ferrals small bags or large on rape take some getting but showing willing more important to farmers

    out again nice day

    Three of us went ferreting today as we are still trying to get plenty done while we still can.The first hedge we ferreted was hard to net as it was on a bank side and had not been done by us before.We got that done by 1300 and had 5 rabbits peter and ian spooked a fox from up a tree covered in ivy which just walked off ..We then had a dinner break and went a few miles away to finish a hedgerow we never got finished last week.On entering the field we saw where the farmer said some poachers had been stuck in a 4x4 while riding round.They were probably after the deer and hares thats why he wont give anyone permission (no trust) genuine hunters tarred with the same brush.We netted all the easy holes we could on this hedge and put in the ferrets and the first bit we did nothing bolted. So we moved to the far end and the rabbits started to bolt and some back netting.There were only three digs off this hedge and we had a total of 9 rabbits from it.So ended the day with 14 rabbits. 3rd pic is were the fox was laid up

    out again

    well i went for a look out this afternoon the skys were clear not a bird in sight so set up with the magnet and a few shells. the damage as been done on the edge of the field and i have seen the birds feeding here i got everything in place and realised no battery's so i put the dead birds on two canes with wing spreaders very little breeze ended up picking 16 .I packed in early to miss the traffic and as i was leaving the birds were dropping in for the last feed so a longer stay is reqired

    have you got permission where the wood is .if the field is small should be easy to see the flight line cut them off on the way in to feed they will still decoy to a magnet on a adjacent field hope this helps
