  1. Ferreting newbie as stated I am more than willing to read and learn from books I am in no hurry at all. But I also know I could learn more in a morning out with a bloke with 10 or more seasons under his belt than I will reading a book about a wonder dog. It's all about respect for me mate how the f**k can I enter a dog into something that I have a lack of knowledge and tools to deal with the situation that's not how I role. And I wouldn't dream of entering a dog until I had ability and knowledge to get the job done quickly, safely and humanly. As I said in my first post I am only thinking about this as a worst case scenario.
  2. It strikes me as a lot of talk about helping the sport out and bringing lad's into different aspects of working dogs but no one is willing to show any f****r the ropes but as soon as someone post's "first dig" all the expert's come out the woodwork. You shouldn't do that do it this way that's wrong or dangerous etc. It isn't a massive problem as I am more than willing to go by trail and error and research. People willing to slate people rather than educate them and pass on knowledge sad sad times.
  3. I was wondering if anyone could help me out I am 25 I have been working lurchers since I was 16 but never really been into terriers until I brought a pup today. I intend to use the pup in time for a bit of bushing for the lurcher. How ever if the dog ever decides to go to ground I would like to have an adequate amount of knowledge tobe able to deal with the situation and who knows maybe get a passion for digging like I have my lurcher work. I live in the west midlands (bewdley) and are really looking for some experienced chaps who could possibly take me out and show me the ropes and the do's and don'ts. I only drive a motorbike but can get any were within reason or the missis can drop me off and pick me up. I understand it is a long shot but if you don't ask you don't get. I am fully aware that people have offered to help people only to find people have gone back to there land after and poached it I am in no way shape or form a c**t like that. As I said I know it's a big ask but I would be grateful for any help cheers.
  4. I will have the pup if it's still needing a home I have dropped you a pm will collect tomorrow. please get back to me ASAP cheers and all the best
  5. accident waiting to happen a brittle 6 month old pup running alongside a fully grown dog it only takes one sharp turn for them to come together and it could be the end before it even began.
  6. whoever started there pup at 6 months old needs to give there head a wobble. the dog is still a pup its 6 months old LET IT BE A PUP. you say your trying to teach it to sit,stay,retrive, and he does this when he wants.... and on top of learning how to do this your taking him out and slipping him on rabbits? its a bit much for a 6 month old dog if he only retrives when he wants whats going to happen when he catches his first rabbit?. that's when bad habbits start get the basics nailed before you even think about slipping him. hold the pup back let it mature there isn't a rush the summer would be an ideal chance to get a few easy bunnies when the ground allows. next winter is when I would start throwing the graft his way.
  7. worst thing that happened to this country was Hitler not winning the war

  14. Alright lads I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am new to catapults only started a month or two back I have on my current setup double therabands and I cant get along with them at all. A freind I go out with let me have a go with his milbro with some 6mm square bands and I was 10 times better and it suited me perfect. But will these bands be powerfull enough to kill game with 12mm lead? I have no idea how much fps they are putting out. I are buying these ready made from http://www.milbropro...ts/accessories. They are called "traditional bands" on that page. If anybody can recommend any more ready tied band sets please feel free. The only reason they need to be ready tied with the pouch is beause i am cack handed and just dont have the time Also would it be fine just to attach it to the fork by doubling it up and using a pin in the loop? Sorry for all the questions lads thanks in advance
  15. THEY ALL ROB YOU depends on how much you value your lifstyle, if you dont get one and they decide to throw the book at you it could be anything from a fine, banned from driving, banned from keeping dogs. could end up losing your job because of it that ends up in bills being unpaid and up shit creek quicker then you knew what hit you. cant you get insured these days fo something like 30 quid?? and that cover if your ever taken to court etc.
  16. :laugh: you walk about with a rabbit tied to your dogs collar
  17. i sold up and joined the army and what a mistake it was. i did 3 years without a dog then ended up based in germany were me and a mate ended up getting a few dogs and doing abit over there. thats when i thought f**k the army i cant live like this anymore and i come out 3 months later. but i hadnt got a family to support or anyone depending on me. its alright everyone sitting here here saying dont do it, it only takes once to get caught to be out of a job, out of money, in debt, and the list goes on mate but once your in its hard to get out no matter what the punishment is belive me.
