i bet if you put the same post in the airgun section and was asking for someone to shoot with you would have people quing up.!!

Whats the matter with them? All the stupid adverts people put on here asking for permission, after a couple of posts you would have thought they would be breaking their necks to get out, if you were closer I would join you mate and likewise, good luck sure you will find a decent ferreter soon.

Some of these people wanting shooting permission don't realise that it's far easier to get ferreting permission than shooting permission.

 

A land owner who doesn't know you from Adam is far more likely to let you ferret on his/her land than let someone on with a rifle. Once you've been ferreting and they get to know you and build up a trust then you can lead into shooting permission.

 

That's what I have found anyway. Did some ferreting for a farmer last year and kept in contact now got permission to shoot the land.

Hunting is an elite sport. Even fishing some struggle to find others to fish with. falconry is so elitest its next to impossible to get to fly with somebody however most don't prefering just to fly and not worry about others birds. And to get the land to fly on an almost impossible simply due to space and the mount you need. Many falconers and ferreters team up now as free flying a bird needs so much more land.

 

Anyway as said again ferreting is elitist and land and other ferreters are hard to come by and land is ruddy scarce. I am on the Kent/Sussex borders and there are few ferreters down here than in say Yorkshire where the land is atleast more plentiful although i am sure its not easy either.

 

Can i suggest to the powers that be on here maybe to set up areas in the country on here and those who are chosen for each area perhaps atleast talk about this and if a PM for a meet ( kept secret because of the 'where's wally brigade'. its just a though that can be thrown into the ring to discuss :)

      Duck hunting is available over particular seasons during their annual migrations through Egypt.  We hunt Summer ducks from mid-August to mid-October and the winter migration from early November through the middle of February. Ducks are a challenging bird to call and shoot and success is also obviously related to a hunter's shooting prowess. We have access to many private lakes in the oasis and these areas also often prove productive during our seasons. Duck shooting is specifically undertaken in the morning and evening as the ducks come in to feed near our blinds. In between these shoots you will also have the opportunity to relax at our hotel, swim in the pool, or enjoy a game of billiards. Another option for our duck hunters is to walk up doves in the middle of the day as they are roosting in nearby date palm trees. This is actually a very challenging process as the doves must actually be stalked in their roosts. We sincerely invite you to come and enjoy legendary Fayoumi hospitality as you hunt on the lake where King Farouk would routinely hunt ducks with visiting dignitaries and other heads of state.
