    It’s all ways the good uns

    thats a shame, always enjoyed your posts showing the dogs at work. sad news , such is the life of a working dog. if its any consolation, at least you gave them a good life mate. Atb

    well i enjoyed the article, good read that, many thanks. Nice to see or in this case read about any working dog actually doing the job it was bred for. ATB
  3. I can understand your frustration mate. There used to be plenty of game around me locally. Now it's almost devoid. I look at the land and wish it were the same as it used to be. I was working for a local farmer last wk,he has been farming there around 20 years on that particular farm. We used to hunt that land 30 years ago and it had reasonable numbers of hares,partridge and rabbits on it then. In Feb you could often see 5 or 6 hares boxing regular. I have not seen a hare on there for the last 15 years. He says his farming methods haven't changed, he puts it down to predators.i.e. badges,foxes buzzards. I remember walking that land when I was younger and stepping over leverates in there forms.

    VHD set to decimate our rabbit population!

    if it carries on like this , it makes you wonder if it will be worth owning a lurcher and ferrets. There has been a massive decline over the last 2 seasons locally, where i was counting 50 plus on some fields of an evening i am now seeing one and twos. it reminds me of the seventys , used to walk for miles with the dog, only thing we run then was the hares, now that jobs buggered as well, Reckon they will see a big decline in raptor numbers now up there, its happened here with the buzzards already.

    Rabbit decline

    I was chatting to simon whitehead recently at a local show about rabbit numbers. He gets about a bit and said that there are areas that still have a good few. He is working in conjunction with a university ,i.e. cutting out livers etc of rabbits he gets from various areas and sending them for analysis. He reckons that rabbits in some of the areas are showing signs of building up antibodies to fight vhd?!
