Ferreting Jacket

Recommended Posts

Looks a useful sort of garment that, out of curiosity what is the perfect ferreting coat/smock in your experience? I've been trying to find one for 30year and still looking!

I use a goretex dpm jacket; but then I carry a daysack so pockets aren't an issue...

I put nets in my jacket and trouser pocket's pick up ten and dump them in a pile then pick them all up with the game bag checking ive all my nets off a burrow . even with the nets being in your pocket such a short while its surprising how much muck collects in your pockets

Could take the bag to every hole and have 3 of my mates following me around to gets nets from it?

Or we could all carry nets in our coats, less the bag to carry rabbits?

Whatever you choose to wear for ferreting ,.it has to be 'cheap 'n cheerful',.cos its a down and dirty old game.. So,.I purchased,.at great expense,.a Genuine Dutch Army Surplus Helly Hanson Fleece. Warm as toast, at around £15.00 a pop from Ebay...

I have a gun dog trainers waistcoat, loads of pockets, and a must is an old wax jacket for crawling under thorn hedges to set nets., can be picked up cheap from ebay used with maybe a small tear, doesnt matter for ferreting.

and lastly cheap wax leggings, dont go for the big names.

Again can be bought cheap in ebay.

and a hat or cap which ever takes your fancy.
