  1. Didn't exactly give my full name address and nights I'd be out though did I
  2. General area, nothing exactly pinpoint though mate
  3. I live near grantham/Stamford Lincolnshire. Have some permission but that's only for ferreting, round here it's hard to get permission especially for running dogs. I don't mix with any other dog men, I doubt anyone knows that I even go out for a shine at night I certainly don't tell any body. Too much jealousy in this game sometimes, prefer to keep myself to myself, I just want to see my dogs work and some sport. Lads tell everyone there business now that's half the problem.
  4. God's country, new I couldn't be the only east midlander on here
  5. After a shit day at work it's nice to see a decent hunting post, this threads been a inspiration.
  6. My grandad used to eat them, hedgehogs, rooks etc pretty much anything that moved. He was one 9f 9 though and from what I gather they didn't have a pot to piss in most of the time so you ate what was there.
  7. Brilliant Mooreman, your birds a credit to all the work you and shows how much hard work you've done with her
  8. That's what I'm going to do mate to be fair just I'm used to collie crosses so I try to stick with what I know. Other problem I have is being out the game so long a lot I used to know who kept lurchers have got out of it so I'm gonna be buying off a add and some of the prices recently have been eye watering I don't mind paying 300-400 for a pup but sod paying over a grand for a lurcher.
  9. I prefer a natural, probably because I shoot upright I find most manafactured forks too wide for me.
  10. Funny how you can gel with certain dogs and not others, I had a saluki cross and like you couldn't get on with it yet I've had others with saluki which worked faultless.
  11. There's another good cross the bedlington x. Not seen a straight cross for years, one of my other favourites. Might be me that's totally wrong haha hopefully I'll find what I'm looking for at some point
  12. I've had no experience of them so maybe I am speaking out of turn, they do look a handy dog especially the wheaton types but I wouldn't call the collie crosses incapable mate, for a ferreting dog and net guarder I think there one of best.
  13. Was thinking the same, I miss my collie grey x whippet was ideal. Don't get me wrong I have lamped and worked foxes with lurcher but to me a lurcher was a ferreting companion and pot filler mainly, the odd course when it was legal but that was best left to the salukis xs. And let's not mention the price of lurcher pups now.
  14. I'm not into numbers can't say I ever have been, just you used to be able to pick up a little rabbiting cur pretty easy and they were perfect for a brace of rabbits mooching bushing etc few on the lamp and a days ferreting. Can't find anything now without bull in it.
