  1. Thanks very much delboy. As I said I'm more comfortable using snares, rifle and terrier never used a fox cage before but needs must I suppose.
  2. Hi lads got a loan of a fox trap from a mate for as long as I need it running a large line of snares around my shoots at the moment but having a problem with 2 really lamp shy foxes on one of my shoot which I can't snare as well as I would like to due to public etc... What sort of advice do you have for setting up a fox trap, bait etc. Never used one before always just used snares, rifle or terrier for the foxes. Many thanks for any advice given.
  3. Thanks lads, sorry for the late reply I'm out lamping tonight. There is a public walk way through the middle of the ground and another one at the bottom of the ground along the river basically doubles back on its self. I've got snares along runs at the edge of fields where they can't be seen by the public but I've also got 6 acres of mixed wood and scrub that I was hoping to put a midden in as its hard to find runs in there and it's discreet enough away from prying eyes. Also the old story it's working when I'm not there.
  4. Hi There I'm looking for a bit of advice from you if you don't mind. I run a small shoot for me and a few mates, put down a few pheasants and partridge. The wood has a public walk way along the farm road ( the River Ayr walk ) I've got problems with some poachers just now using lurchers on the Foxes and Deer. As a result I've got a few lamp shy foxes going around I've got snares set on the usual places but wanted to erect a stink pit / midden in the wood. There is a badger set on the neighbouring farm but no signs of badgers on my ground never seen any in the lamp ether and no signs of them cr
  5. Looking to see if anyone has any details of anyone who makes and sells fox snares, I'm looking for around 50 snares to run over the winter. Thanks in advance.
  6. Got a mk4 and a mk6 missing the bit it goes into, and a mk6 missing the dog, any ideas how to get in contact with them to get replacement parts ?
  7. Hi lads, bought a few more mk4 fenn traps from the local farm supply shop for around my shoot for grey squirrels and the odd rat going to my feed hoppers, they are genuine fenn traps. Been catching every day but one of the traps has missing the brass bit attached to the plate for setting the trap ( don't know the name of it ) is there any way to go about getting a replacement part or is the trap for the bin now ? Many thanks.
  8. Hi mate I've got a mk3 locator with 2 collars for sale, only been used twice. Only selling it as I've got a job as a gamekeeper and I'm raising funds to move from Scotland to Sussex. I'm looking for £200 ONO I've got pay pal or bank transfer and can post.
  9. Hi lads, picked up my rifle yesterday it's a how's 1500 heavy barrel .22-250. It's got a 5/8 thread for a moderator I'm just wondering if any of you lads have got one for sale or could recommend and makes to go for. Thanks.
  10. Hi lads I've got a 6 year old patterdale bitch that's a really good worker I'm looking for another terrier now to take out with me, any terriers for sale in Ayrshire, money waiting.
  11. Hi lads im looking to find out where i buy these strings with bangers on them to keep the birds moving around ? Many thanks. Andrew.
  12. I set my snnares high with a big loop 10inches off the ground and a loop of between 8-10 inches catching foxes regularly that way.
  13. Amazing thing that to put on a hunting forum northernlite. Shows the sence your lot has. Only thing your lot hasnt got is cash and your amazing manager is now milking the club for a year being a gardener. WE DONT DO WALKING AWAY ??? looks like super ali is walking away !!!!!
