You're a bit far from me otherwise I'd have loved to take you up on the offer. But I'm interested to know more about how they fly when you're doing hedgerows. I've been ferreting with Harris's a long time ago, but that was in fairly open country. If you're doing hedgerows I'm assuming a large percentage of the rabbits just run down the hedge. Can the birds strike at a rabbit in cover? Or will they only make a bid for any that break into the open?

if the bunnies don't break cover ,the birds will try and ambush them in the hedge ,there really turned on if they miss a few as you will know,but its not about catching every rabbit that bolts we like to watch the chase just as much , but flying them in cast makes it a bit easier for the birds striking in the cover ,1 strikes 1 waits its great to watch . that's why we need a bit of help ferreting lol cheers bri

      Pigeon shooting on a small farm between Darlington and Richmond, must be able to go mid week not just weekends, this could be a nice little pigeon shooting permission for the right person, I’ve had some good days here but just can’t get there as often as the owner would like

      Hi all,
       My Dad  and I have rented a land in Spain. 30 min from Gibraltar airport. We are looking for 5 hunters to share the expenses. Currently i live in Bristol so what i do is to take weekend flights almost every month so im happy that you to join me.
      The land has:
      3 ibex license sep-january
      8 red deers sep-feb
      12red  deer does  
      5 roe deers May- September
      Wildboar all the year
      The land also includes house and my father is happy to pick up you at the airport.
      The price is £2000 per season/hunter
      if you know someone who might be interested give me a ring.
      The idea is to share the expenses not to sell a hunt as we are not professional outfitters so we are just looking for fellow hunters who are interested in big game shooting to share the experience.
