  1. Yesterday while letting the dogs empty themselves and have run about over the back field, my youngest dog pulled up with a Yelp after a short burst. There was no limping or holding his leg up his head just went down and went really quiet. Since then he’s still not limping but doesn’t seem to b putting full weight down on back foot and when he’s waking he seems to be kicking it out to the side. Anybody any idea what it could be? Doesn’t seem to b bothering him that much but definitely something not right
  2. He’s taken it down, he said on Facebook that the video he put up of making the pheasant feeders, somebody must have knew the area where they were and went and stole them. It’s a pity as it was one of the YouTube channels that was actually decent,a bit of everything on there.
  3. Not sure mate think it was called under the lamp or under the beam something similar to that
  4. Heard through a couple of lads there’s a new fox lamping dvd out from Ireland just now but can’t seem to find it. Anybody know anything about it or got a link. Cheers
  5. Ah right thought that, used to have a website called sporting-videos aswell. He made some good dvds with plenty good footage
  6. Anybody know if it’s still on the go? Used to see the guy that had it at the game fairs in the summer but not for a few years. Always used to think his leather collars were good quality and reasonably priced.
  7. If you get a game 3/4 there’s not a better dog for lamping Charlie’s. They can have a lot of bother with injuries though with there speed and reckless running style but on the flip side that’s why they will catch things that others won’t. Not seen any litters for years, best way bred are from a game tested proper first cross not any scatter bred shit that’s half bull. Pity there’s not much about these days. Seeing a good one go would be an eye opener for some folk
  8. A lot of lads seem to think when the fields get cut that’s the season started but in reality the ground is still rock solid, weather is boiling hot and all quarry is about half grown. On the flip side of the argument the rifle lads will be out wiping out litters of Cubs ect that the dog men have left alone all spring/ summer, all for some trigger happy prick to wipe everything out within a couple of nights. Ideally it would b September crops were getting cut but we can’t have it all
  9. Won’t be much being bred now I don’t think but was quite popular at one time
  10. Anybody still run these? Or seen them back in the day? There was a good line about in Scotland for years nothing left now though
  11. Seeing increased numbers this year where I am, still only in pockets though but more that the last few years. Things usually start to look good throughout the summer then the myxi raises its head around august September time and it’s back to square one
  12. Good stuff, think I will give it a try, especially start Of the season when it can b a bit warm
  13. Anybody use it? when do people use it? was thinking on getting it as I’ve a dog that is terrible in any form of heat and Is constantly panting. Does it improve recovery time ect? Just interested to see people’s opinions on it
  14. Fair play to keepers doing it or doing it for farmers that are getting bother with them, have to keep permission ect but there are plenty that look forward to this time of year and use the previous as an excuse. Terrier work is definitely the way to do it though, plenty shooters will happily shoot a vixen that’s feeding Cubs and not a thought spared for the Cubs that will b left to starve
  15. Just make sure it’s kept clean mate, when people say purple spray, the majority of it is just shite, if you can get it teramycin is the stuff you want it’s what they use for foot rot in sheep. Great for cuts and wounds. Used manuka honey recently on a deep wound and that sped up the healing process a lot, great stuff
  16. Dog hit something the other night, got a fair cut around the inside of his knee, was around a week ago today. After a few days could feel air under the skin around the wound, now it seems to be going up his side/back. I’ve had it before but not as much and it’s always just went away on its own.this seems to be getting more rather than going away just wondering if anybody had similar?
  17. Ebay your best bet mate, that’s where I got mine
  18. I’ve found The best thing for pups is variety, you won’t make a small type dog big but you can definitely get more out of it if given the right ingredients. Where I’ve noticed most people go wrong with pups is giving them a diet of pretty much all raw meat because they think protein is all they need, that’s when legs start to bend go soft because there is no calcium going in. Raw protein is important but certainly not just that, I always add bone builder/ calcium powder in with all raw. A mix of good puppy kibble, tripe, fish, cooked chicken(no bones) full fat milk even a mix of tinned dog mea
  19. Looking forward to them, it’s been a while since anything for dog lads has been out, the last being his lamping book. It’s clear to see there has been many days/nights and miles out in to get those pics.
  20. Red mills racer 20% protein along with raw beef and tripe,I think if feeding them a lot of raw meat ect then there’s not really a need for high protein kibble.
  21. 240 blitz or tracer 210 without a doubt, heard they are really hard to get now though. I’ve a tracer 170 aswell not quite as bright as the above but a great alround lamp
  22. Hard going trying to get a pup from proper breeding now, most of what you see being advertised is scatter bred shite that’s never seen a decent shift in there life’s
  23. What’s the fox populations like in everybody’s areas this year, seems to get less and less every year around here, the thermal/night vision combination with rife is definitely the culprit.
  24. For running dog injury’s that don’t require X-rays/operations ect I wouldn’t bother going a vet either as they will just take money from you for what they can and most don’t know the first thing abt running dogs. I’ve a good one by me that’s retired that was into greyhound racing so he knows the script but otherwise would go to a recommended boneman all day long
  25. Most broken toes heal well enough themselves unless they are proper twisted ect. Give dog plenty rest more than anything, you will then see it starting to Callus up going hard round the break. Would only get it taken off if it doesn’t set properly and is effecting the dogs running.
