    ratting with three brothers

    it was this afternoon but cheers mate.id guess it took as long to get there as it did to catch the rats.i wish i had that sort of hunting every week. total was 55.i think there could have been a couple more buried as we moved stuff about.either way i dont think ive ever killed as many rats in such a short time.
  2. i went ratting with a couple of mates and their terriers.the dogs are all litter brothers.it took about an hour to take this lot.

    OUT WITH REED

    it was wild longslip,we caught a few more rabbits than in the pic but i lost them off the game carriers.it was hard just to keep walking. ill try and answer a few of your questions luke. i like the cross for the ground i run dogs on.they have good feet and stamina as a rule.i like to go ratting and pre ban did a bit with the terriers and the gwp crosses ive seen have done ok at those sports aswell. i had trouble bringing up my bitch but i think she was a one-off,i dont forsee any problems training/stockbreaking these pups and people i know who also have the cross have had no problems like i did with my bitch. they can get their heads down and start to hunt far away from you,like a pure gwp can.i guess then it comes down to recall................my bitch is hard to stop sometimes on a good scent and can go deaf.at times she has had to be put on a leash and nigh on dragged away from an occupied fox earth. whilst they are tough mutts out hunting the pointer crosses can be sensitive and can be easily upset by even just being shouted at.perhaps they are slow to mature in some areas but from what ive seen they start hunting from an early age. mind im not any kind of expert on the pointer cross,there are people who look on this forum who are far more experienced on them than i am.

    i saw my first munty two weeks ago in county durham whilst travelling to my permission which is a bit further north.it was standing at the side of the road beside a plantation. it was a pleasant suprise before we started lamping.
