  1. Only if we run with that attitude. It would be completely different. They've learned the loopholes and closed every one of them in this proposal. English and Scottish MPs have already come out to say they're watching with interest because if this is passed it would make it easier to bring the rest of the UK in line.
  2. As some will know we're up against it again in Northern Ireland with an Alliance minister putting forward a proposal for banning the hunting of mammals with dogs. Essentially they've taken the principles of the Blair ban and closed every loophole in it. If it goes through it will be illegal to even hunt a rabbit with a spaniel. No terrier work, no lurcher work, not even trail hunting. There is a public consultation currently running that needs 60% vote in favour for the bill to be considered. The usual antis have been casting it wide and far for support. Please take a moment to complete it to

  6. Thank you I do have a picture of the sire but he's not mine so wouldn't share without the man's permission.
  7. Thanks Yeah, I kept a dog pup back for myself. Hoping he will continue in the footsteps of his mother.
  8. My old lass. She's getting on now and has been a real hard working and reliable sort. A pleasure to own. I've just had a litter out of her before it was too late and hopefully her son will graft as much as she has. The ad for the last three pups is in the classifieds if anyone is looking for a decent pup.
  9. View Advert Lurcher pups. Three bitch pups left from litter of seven. Out of well bred, hard working and seasoned parents. Sire- Wheaten Bull Greyhound. Dam- Collie Bull Greyhound (in photos). Will make roughly 25-27 inches. Ready to go now. Located in Northern Ireland. £200 Advertiser Digga123 Date 13/06/20 Price £200.00 Category Working Lurchers &
  10. Hit or miss with rifle... That's laughable. My whole point was, that is not the case with modern technology available. Even with only a lamp and a retard behind the trigger, you've another few rounds in the magazine and a couple of hundred meters to follow up. That chap that took 501 evidenced every single fox so gave no reason not to believe it. I wouldn't have posted it otherwise. Sitting round cover with shotguns on every viable exit is as bad as rifling them in my opinion. There's a 50/50 chance with a lurcher and if the terriers are as shite as your saying, sure the fox will never be dug.
  11. I'd love to meet the cover man and his dog that took 501 foxes in a year like the individual and his rifle I posted before. You are saying the rifle men are only trying to stay legal. Running foxes with a lurcher is legal in Ireland, shooting less than 60 feet from the centre of a public highway is not. Neither is it legal to discharge a firearm on ground you do not have permission to do so. A big number of rifle men are operating on the wrong side of the law so don't try and preach that.
  12. This is just the tip of the iceberg lads. There are few on that site that took under 100 last year. Here's one from the UK to give an idea of what I'm on about. They're keeping skulls and having them measured for medals... just to add to the boasting rights.
  13. Saying there will be breeding stock where these lads can't reach is foolish. There is nowhere they can't reach now. They drive for hours in country they know nobody, never have to put a lamp on and shoot anything they see. All thermal spotters and night vision scopes. If there's anywhere they can't see into, they turn on their call boxes that have every call possible from squealing rabbit to vixen in heat. The latest trend is to set up feeding stations and just sit and wait for the foxes to roll in for an handy dinner. With prey numbers down it's an easy gig. There's a few who have genuine rea
  14. That's just one Irish lads post from either side of Christmas.
