  1. They’re a cracking bunch of pups, the two pups posted there are very much like the father, he’s an impressive looking dog and a good temperament, suprised they haven’t been snatched up by now!
  2. Anywhere without eleccy fences
  3. Nice bitch, is she a pure or is she saluki grey bred?
  4. Is it not a hotspot? Just with the long coat it has.
  5. Buzzards everywhere, they’re bold too, used to be wary of people now they’ve no bother being above you.
  6. He’s just a sour man and it comes across in the posts. I’ve no problem with lads out shooting for enjoyment but it’s a bit unreasonable for the lad to be slating dog lads especially when he effects their sport more than they effect his.
  7. You and the likes are bad news for everyone who’s into hunting. Bitter. I’ve never understood why a hunting lad can feel so pissed by others out hunting with their dogs, they usually want everything to themselves. Fact is the population is down like you say. a rifle man can take a lot of foxes, one man with one gun, which is very common place. Now a fox pack can take good numbers up to 100 a season but there’s not many fox packs doing the job and doing it well, so there’s no comparison when it comes to who’s causing the damage to the population. The cover lads have been at that craic for many more years than the night vision lads as you said, and like everyone was saying foxes where more abundant back then, so that tells you once the rifle boys came it had a big impact on numbers.
  8. Fox numbers are down here too, still there but not many. rabbits seem on the rise though.
  9. I’ve found some places the shake works well, others it makes no difference, suppose it depends on if they’re lamped before
  10. A dog will have 20 generations at least! of dilution in a century, humans might possibly only have 3. Worth a thought.
  11. I have done but I wouldn’t do it anymore either, but there’s some sport you walk past if you don’t. Few rock spots at home and the lads who braved them would be getting many more foxes than the lads checking earths. Respect to the lads who do it!
  12. Instant nothing great about it, Maybe that’s where your coming unstuck, hence relying on antibiotics. I wouldn’t leave anything in a wound after a dig, that’s why they don’t get infected. One day they may do and I’ll be the first to use them, but I’d never use them as a preventative measure because that is misusing them, eventually rendering them useless.
  13. I think some lads assume that antibiotics aid in recovery time of a wound. If there’s no infection present they’re not doing anything but harm. And I’d be the first to say, if I see infection I will get the dogs antibiotics but I’d rather prevent with cleaning than rely on them.
