  1. Do you think the ticks had something to do with its condition or was there another obvious reason? Novice
  2. Thanks for the reply Beast. Not something I've come across before.
  3. Surely the reduced size is a strong indicator of inbreeding, rather then evidence of any specific strain? I know of a captive herd in Cumbria that are similar, weedy little things, mainly as nutrition and culling has been historically neglected. I believe things have improved more recently though. Novice
  4. What species if tuna? Interesting to hear there's a few about. Would have thought they'd have been scooped up by the commercial lit, intentionally or otherwise. Novice
  5. Any history to it? Whereabouts in the country is it from? Novice
  6. Did they just let the crop grow round it? Looked like a fresh stubble field as I drove past at 69mph Novice
  7. Anyone owning up to the green and silver Subaru legacy stuck up to its axles on a stubble field right up against the M40 just south of the Chiltern gap... Novice
  8. Pretty sure I've seen similar pics on another forum recently which were taken abroad following a driven hunt specifically for fox. I presume those numbers are achievable if enough forestry is pushed out, especially where the fox are controlled otherwise. He's certainly got the right response if he was on the windup. Novice
  9. Recently borrowed a copy of his mink trapping DVD. A cracking piece of work, really useful information. Novice
  10. Possums. Released as a feral and built up to plague proportions. Got a couple of interesting books by fellas who used to make good money trapping them for the fur trade back in the day. Novice
  11. Just weighed it. 2lb9oz, which I understand is about average for an adult male mink. Very surprised as it's a very big animal. I'd love to see and handle something a lb or more bigger, must be very impressive. Although it's possible this one would have been a fair bit heavier in the autumn after a good summer's feeding. Thankfully he won't get that opportunity anymore. Novice
  12. I caught a thumper myself this week but I'm afraid posting pictures is a bit beyond me. Out of interest, could anyone give some weights of the largest dog mink they've caught? I intend to make a point of weighing this one as I can't imagine they get much bigger, although time of year will obviously see a bit of variance in weight of an individual animal. Novice
  13. I'm pretty sure the springer trap is specifically names in the relevant legislation alongside the fenn version as being approved. Should be no real difference in performance. Novice
