I don't know exactly what do you mean by "mix", it means to bite ? If it means to bite, they are more barkers than mixers. Betty, the left one on the pic, is my best jack (10 badgers in 5 hunts this

Some pics from my digging class

It would be a dammed shame if this thread came to an end due to perceived un-constructive criticism or advice. I can see the point regarding none use of locator kits but as has been said, not relevant because of French law. A more prudent question would be how many, if any, terriers are lost to ground during a season? Looking at the posted pictures of these French badger digging terriers there does appear to be differences in the way some on this side of the Channel did it. In the latter years of badger digging in England, to some, a digging dog could be recognised by the fact that it was missing half of it's face. If a terrier was in full possession of it's nose or lips then it hadn't been properly grafted. Cracker jacks in possession of dogs that they were not worthy of owning. To me, it seems like the French are doing it properly. Respecting their terriers, the badger and themselves.

That’s all well and good if your culling everything you hunt, but if your releasing game like people did this side of the channel, the stand off dogs will leave you with plenty of holes and not one of them successful. I respect a dog which doesn’t take any punishment but I also have respect for a dog that won’t move no matter what is thrown at them. I have even more respect for an animal that outsmarts the dog. Talking about those injuries on this thread is a bit careless as they can be sustained with legal fox hunting and doesn’t indicate that the dog has worked Badger.

Ok. I have fell into the trap of commenting on comments made on a THL thread in trying to help save it. This thread, which I find interesting. And as a result have ended up adding to the very sort of thing that the person who started the thread, and keeps it going, is getting tired of. How ironic.

If anyone speak about one more time of locator on this thread, just one time, this will be the end.


I'm convinced that diversity is interesting, different ways of hunting is wonderful, that we have a lot of pleasure to discover who is hunting an other way. I'm very involved in hunting in France and this my life. I'm haven't any time to spend to somebodies who never hunted with me, who speak about my art by ignorance.

One more time, the end.

So does that mean you won’t be taking a collar ?or does that mean you will drop 6 holes then after failing to find use a collar 

funny how your using British dogs tho

Shame to see this thread has been ruined, possibility of any moderator doing their job? didnt think so.

There’s nothing to moderate really it’s an open forum and everyone has there own opinions unfortunately when there not the same as other people’s then people have a bit of a tiff.if every bit of a tiff was moderated nothing would get posted

I here what your saying and I agree that some threads an be ruins by people but I suppose that part and parcel of posting on an open forum realy  so when postjngbyou have to accept that some people won’t agree if they Wright something you( not you personally) don’t like you can either just leave it or start debate about it but sooner or later someone loses there dummy
