    Big numbers in one night

    I usually work alone unless I’ve invited someone else so he’s never on the lead but never wanders more than 10 yards unless he gets the sent of a hare then he does a little excited dance bounce round in circles around me like his saying please dad can I go get it lol

    Thinned out

    I usually only shoot during summer months sell up the ferreting gear to fund a gun then sell the gun to replace the ferret gear it’s worked well for me over last 5-6 years this year managed to keep everything to do with ferrets now I’m sure I’ll be selling one of my two guns very soon but which one is going I’ve got the hw100 1.77 kt and love this little girl BUT I’ve also got the daystate huntsman mk2 1.77 single shot , out of the two shocked you may be the huntsman is just in a class of its own truthfully a better gun all round before you start saying I don’t know what I’m on about think again I’m sure my good friend jimmy when he’s down at the weekend for a bit rabbit bashing will report back jimmy looking forward to it mate atvb mark
