    rabbits in oz

    interesting point there. I wonder if these wonder rabbiters who say this have realised the equipment & technology they take for granted wasn't available at that time.

    I think it could make a very good ferreting dog. would want it off working stock. the thing is how many people actually work Irish terriers?

    Yes a chap at work (not a dreamer or arse hole) stopped the van on way home what he thought was a rabbit sat at roadside. turned out to be a leveret full of myxi.

    very poor rabbit population around here been like it a few years. dog has killed 6 with myxi in last 2 weeks. I don't care what people say about new diseases myxi is still the biggest killer of rabbits.

    you need speed to catch a bolted rabbit anywhere. all this talk of easy rabbits they don't just sit and wait for the dog. I have never ferreted the dales but my money would be on the dogs mentioned the collie would get no where near them.

    look at the chap on here bolting to his whippets & grew. also big lad & his little helper in the dales. do you seriously believe a near on full collie would catch even a small percentage of what there dogs do bolting to the dogs?

    I don't think your missing anything. they are virtually collies and how many collies do you know with speed to catch rabbits. people underestimate how fast short run rabbits are more so in the daytime.

    it's your choice. I only really work rabbits and value hunting up, working cover, hedgerows, brambles and above all marking more than anything. but I do like a dog quick enough to catch rabbits and reverse crosses don't look quick enough for me.
