Ferreting under buildings.

Recommended Posts

Anyone ferret under buildings? I have a bit to do and a few of the warrens are under buildings. Theyre small warrens only 3 or 4 holes but theyre under a concrete slab so Im a bit worried about not being able to retrieve the ferret if something goes wrong.


The landowner wants them out from under the building so I think Ill backfill the holes after Ive ferreted them.

Theres a stable block i do like that never had a problem you can follow the ferret under the concrete with the box and the rabbits still bolt . the second ones at another stables its just a concrete base and the building fell down . If i ever had problems i thought i would just dig in from the side never had to but it was a option . Same place the rabbits are under the main road and ive never even thought about ferreting there

Love doing buildings and such places always gets you thinking out of the box,, like the post above.


Do no end of barns in the dales,, there's about 8 or 9 on some of our permissions ,,, that are always good for a few out of each one sometimes 7 or 8










A mark under the floor





Under a container and building materials






Under this rock pile outside a barn,,, always get a few here ,, think the first time we had 10

I remember when i first started ferreting there where a few rockpiles on my permission never had longnets and my dog wernt much cop. Used to net there nearest warrens and try and backnet em. Like you said gets you thinking outside the box. Even tried propping up purse nets with sticks in the holes in rabbit proof fencing lol.
