  1. We are lucky enough to have thousands of acres of permissions from big shooting estates to cricket grounds horse liverys and a lot of national trust land but it didn't happen over night it took years of gaining land owners trust and by word of mouth. I also have few mates that are gamekeepers on big estates that give me all the rabbiting I'll ever need but as said it's about doing a good job and more importantly trust. You get a lot of people that get a bit of permission and are asked not to do a certain thing i.e. Leave the hares alone etc but as soon as the landowners back is turned they are letting their dogs chase hares then they wonder why they get told to sod off. News of bad ferreters travels round the country far quicker than you think and you're never get anywhere decent to hunt if your one of these band of clowns. So get knocking some doors and when you get your first bit of permission other permissions will happen if you do as you are asked and don't take the piss out the landowner
  2. I normally keep about 10 to 12 ferrets in a big court they are all reasonably good workers some better than others but 5 of them are exceptionaly good workers these Kitts mum a silver and my gamekeeper mates sandy hob are 2 great workers. We Always breed best to best and try and keep a good bloodline but as anyone knows it's not always a guarantee. Have had some good uns over the 40yrs ferreting but had my fair share of not so good uns as well. If I could bring some of my best ever workers back from that big rabbit warren in the sky I'd be a very happy man. I'm sure we all have certain ferrets that stick in our minds forever!! HAPPY HUNTING TO ALL
  3. Forgot to mention I'm from Brighton East Sussex
  4. I have one polecat hob and one silver hob nearly 9 weeks old handled from birth very friendly and from good working stock free to good home only

  7. Been looking for a small cartridge bag for my grandson to use with his o/u 410 Iv got loads decent good quality biggish bags but they are far to big and look a bit daft on the grandson with a couple of boxes of 410 cartridges in. Iv hunted everywhere to find a small bag with no success I would rather a bag than a cartridge belt and I don't really want him carrying cartridges in his pockets. Anyone any ideas where I can but a small bag??? Thanks
  8. Jesus You got this LITTLE fella a couple of weeks ago how big is one of the BIG fellas then?? Great pics on the ferreting by the way mate!!
  9. As people have said any ferret will work but when you come across them hard to find excellent working strains they are like gold dust. Iv had hundreds of ferrets over many years and proberbly 10 stick in my mind as exceptional these have long gone to that big warren in the sky of old age. Would I pay £50 each to have these workers back?? Bloody sure I would with no hesitation.
  10. As said Iv got a quite a big ferret court with loads of various colour pipes and never paid a penny for it. Got most of it from asking at building sites and looking in skips etc. The colour varies but black yellow and orange seem to be the most common
  11. I have now taken the grandson to the local club and the kid has given the kofs 410 a good go at clays used 3" no 8s. I had a few shots myself and Iv got to admit I'm very impressed by the handling and quality of this budget priced kofs it shoots lovely. Iv got a 20 bore Beretta silver pigeon and I hate to admit it but this kofs handled and came up to eye equally as good. We will have to see how a few winters in the field has any effect on the build quality of the kofs. But as it stands I like the little kofs 410 a lot
  12. Iv got fixed and multi choke guns and always use 1/4 and 1/2 choke in all the multi choke ones and my fixed choke ones are as above. I think the single webley bolt action 410 is fixed full choke. Use 6 and 5 shot for most quarry this combo has done me ok for 40 odd years of shooting
