  1. I don’t under stand why people steal ferrets as from time to time I see it mentioned on a lot of posts when I see a lot of you guys are more than happy to gift them. My only concern when you here about the theft of any animal is on how it’s getting looked after. May be one day someone might end up catching some one stealing another persons ferrets or any other pet. If you do let’s go and steal their children and see how they like it. My ferrets are not just for hunting but are almost like family. It’s great to see when people do gift not just only ferrets but other animals as well as you now they are going to a good home.

  2. I have a hob with a stumpy tail the bloke that sold it to me believed the mother had bitten it of which I find hard to believe but a great ferret on the rabbits. I will pop some photos up later of him.

  3. It’s great to see you are starting to Handel them at a young age. Some of the people down here where I live don’t believe you should Handel them till around 8 weeks which I believe is to long. But l also believe it depends on the mother as well. She must also be a well handled ferret. Well done and good luck with them.

  4. My main concern using ferrets on rats is what diseases do the rats carry and can they pass them on to the ferrets. And my other concern would on what damage can they do to a ferret as in biting them or is a ferret tougher than a rat. 

  5. Well COVID has come back and we are back in lockdown. All shops are closed unable to keep going on it at this time being on a 5 KM travel from home. Well I have enough timber maybe I will build another ferret carrying box. 

  6. I have to say I have never heard of the Jill jab we just seam to bread our ferrets each year.  I did once speak with a lady that was telling me you can put your Jill out of season with a cotton bud. Has anyone out their ever heard of that or is she taking the micky out of me. 

  7. And I thought I was the only one that done long netting around a sheds , wood sheds and junk piles and under houses well done love it. Just out of interest where did you get your quick net set ups from and not being rude but what kind of dollars would I be looking at and the length.  Also a mate of mine has 4 whippet pups for sale just on 4 months old if you know of anyone looking for one WHO will be good to them send me a pm. Love it I would love to come out with you some time and maybe learn a few good tips.

  9. I remember when I was around 12 years old I would have my air rifle tied on to the Handel bars of my bike and was able to buy slugs for it and go down to the creak and shoot birds. If my kids done it to day they wouldn’t make it to the end of the street with out someone complaining and the police turning up.  It’s amazing how times have changed. But my daughter still rides the bike that I rode and loves it and I am on 50 years old. Even when I was a kid going ferreting with my dad we would just pull up ons go through the fence and ferret and catch a few bunnies but today if you done that you would probably end up dodging bullets.

  10. Nothing wrong with the cage if the ferret can’t break out you done a nice job.  Nothing like getting satisfaction on building something from scratch.  I have built quite a few over the years and carry boxes as well. Well done.

    No idea if its right but does me

     

    Elchapo I will take that on board I think that is a great idea and wouldn’t be hard at all the only reason I used the net as I had one in the shed and used it as a starting point. Terryd thanks for the video that is the knot that I have being using but people have being talking about Gromits and bands to attach the net to the poles. I have being looking on YouTube and on the internet on how they are tied together but unable to find a clear photo of it. And to everyone else thank you for all your advice. I will keep you posted on how I go. 

  12. Well I have use a net for the bag which seems to work. The total length of the net is a 100 meters or 109 yards. But 55 yards long after the bagging this net is used for going around shipping containers which we do quite often.  What would be a comfortable size net for a quick set as the netting is quite heavy in its set up and I have not yet added the poles. What is the most common length you guys use. This question is probably a personal preference I just thought I would put it out their.

  13. G day tomo thanks for your advise with the clove hitch knot on the poles are you able to put up a few photos on how it’s done as I have being using purse nets for years and new to the long netting. And also what do you use to hold up your nets. 

  14. Well I have made start I will see how I go. So far  I think I have done okay. A few touch ups on the welding and then put strap and bag on the bottom. For the bag I am thinking of using a fine mesh fishing net that they use on the scoop net. It’s all trial an error I am opened up to any ideas or changers.
