    I used a manual one recently to mine a Roe deer with some belly fat and it was a tight bother. The meat came out more like mush than mince. Id never get one. Maybe an electronic one be better.
  2. Youd have more luck / better chance buying a Euromillions ticket... at least then if you win you can buy the land. They don’t want to do any actual work, and looking into the insurance details etc etc of letting someone run about their land with a firearm will be the last thing they want to do.
  3. I’d stick an auto feeder, or even two on it considering it looks a decent size. Get the feeder to spray food out about an hour before dark, as duck (I believe) will flight in as it gets dark and feed overnight. If you can push them off in the morning. I’d leave it until October to establish, if you can get there regular to push them off in morning you should see how many are about. Come October shoot it once a fortnight, don’t over shoot it as they’ll just leave. Stick some wooden pallets up if you can to make a nice hide .
  4. He’s not overweight or really unfit but I don’t walk or run him on ground with nothing for hours on end, as I want him to run in trials ideally and he has to come out running. If you run them too long or on ground with no game they can start to pace themselves and just plod about. My mates done it with his two cockers, he takes them on big walks and walking holidays they might be out for 3-4 hours at times, when he brings his dog out to hunt now it just walks from cover to cover don’t run at all, so I am trying to avoid that. In the season I imagine hunting on game for periods will add fitness but I would like to condition the dog before that to try and give him the best chances.
  5. It’s finding the spot with plenty of rabbits that’s the hard part.
  6. They need to be running alongside a bike or similar then really?
  7. Just at walking speed? thanks for replying
  8. Does walking the dog for a long time on the lead say along the roads/pavements build fitness? I am wanting to build fitness in my spaniel, however I don't want to hunt him endlessly as I know this can create a dog that just plods along when set off to hunt (my mates does it as it's used to being taken on 3-4 hours walks regularly). I want to maintain that hunting intensity but also need the dog to be fit enough to run flat out for a good period of time without being knackered. I imagine when the season comes real hunting will help put that peak performance in, but until then I need something to get him conditioned to be ready for that. thanks
  9. My mate;s from Mayo over the South, he said they still tar and feather folk who are too much bother, they soon learn to behave or f**k off!
  10. A couple decent bloke with a few spades and a bit of land in the corner of their bog and the c**t be sorted and society would owe them lads a debt.
  11. "Part trained" ... means they probably taught it to sit for a treat. I wouldn't buy anything off the internet etc. If I wanted an older dog I'd only buy it off trainers I know personally as I woudn't trust any f****r. Hence easier to get a pup.
  12. They reckon rabbit fed whole (skin and all) is great for dogs and reduces the need for wormer.

    Cooked or raw?

    Lamb hearts are offal and I think can make the dog stools looser. A variety of meats needs to be given, as well as roughly 10% bone, and 10% offal (5% liver and 5% other organ/secreting organs). This combo should ensure the dog has everything it needs. I found heart makes mine loose. Adding more bone will firm them up and more offal makes them looser if needed.

  15. I thought the raw bones, as well as egg shells add calcium... perhaps others feeding raw are giving meat only and not bones as well? Liver I believe is full of iron which is added to the food I will try and get some of that keepers mix, what is it and is it any good?
