Well, my old dog caught many on the lamp, and only ever caught a few in the daytimes with snow on the ground.

No snow, and he just got straight lined lol.

 

So, yes, a lot easier on the lamp ;-)

:hmm: By and large, it was always, more productive, taking the hares after dark with a determined dog and a dazzler...and a few, well placed gate/gap nets, also helped fill the bag....

 

Daytime coursing was always great fun,..but, frequently,.emotional... :laugh:

Lamping Hares?.Best left to the daytime in my opinion.True test of a Lurcher

 

your correct there about daytime hares being the best test of a dog but what about us lot who do not keep saluki crosses and walk feilds for them during the daytime what about lamping dogs should you not slip your dog on a hare on the lamp because its not a true test for your dog. i bet you have slipped your dog on a hare on a plough feild were the hare cannot run its best but somehow it is ok because its "daytime"

 

it all depends on the dogs you run if you had a pure whippet or a half cross collie are they going to catch a daytime hare with any consistance? i think lamping hares would be spot for that. just because there lamped dont mean they just roll over and die i have seen quite a few 5 min courses on the lamp and some that of ended quicker than other just like daytime. they are mostly going to be a fractionly easier because its dark and the fact there is a dazzler in there face but as a said they dont just roll over and die...

Only ever had one on the lamp but it gave the dog a dam good run. Up and down back and forward around and around felt like it went on for ever. The dog was getting slower and slower through exhaustion but kept going then eventually nailed it. Few times it nearly went out of range of the beam but all ways turned and came back so luck was on our side that night

Was very proud of the dog
