Hard Dogs How Many.


Recommended Posts

We're fked and that's that , the French will be ok unless they let us get involved in there terrier control of species ? We should have licences ourselves long ago, our game is a magnet for the gangster boys and to many dickheads take them in because they are week and in need of some kind of notoriety themselves ? Govshites! I know many unfortunately . At least if we could single them out , we wouldn't be possible classed as the same as them .... If u know what I mean . Hunting with terriers done properly is not cruel... No crueler than catching a fish! Hope these French guys get off this site , it ain't gonna do them no gud :( I i brought no shame in this game ... HAVE YOU

I think everyone has a different opinion on what is called a hard terrier.Some will call a terrier that can kill fox to ground on a regular basis hard where others will say the dog just has a nack for

Mute dog would not keep it I like the sound of sounding under my feet to much most of what I come across is educated stuff and I dig them with bayer mixer types I have no need for hard dog just my opi

If it wasnt for them hard dogs being bred off there would be barely any decent dogs about today. Them that drift away from hard dogs altogether do so at their own peril,il use nick stevens as an examp

Well said Jiggy..

 

Neil just a thought you say the nwtf is doing a lot to eradicate wannabes and trouble makers are you not in the south and the iwtf would cover your area these men in my opinion have saved us from a full hunting ban like the UK and have been outstanding in our fight for justice by bringing in a code of conduct and lobbying various groups. I think we are light years ahead of where we were with some great leaders pushing the cause those men deserve a mention.

It all depends on depth, time to ground and also whether the quarry is playing ball. Numbers can be very mis-leading IMO. Would you rather have 5 2hr plus digs to a dog or 15 that are a spades depth etc?

easy one for me 15 at spades depth lol I'm getting older mate 😄

Ime going for 15 out of my young dog for first season he's on 8 digs up to now and a bolt and has just recovers from his last dig so I be looking for dig number 9 this week his last 3 outings add up to 14 hour to ground and in my honest opinion I don't think numbers mean much at all you chuld have a 30 minute dig every day and it won't tell you much about your dog as it's not even got out of first gere I got a bitch here and when I lived in a different country the digging was 99% shallow 45 minute affairs the bitch started abit slow then had a cuple seasons digging with her then started digging in new country were the earths are always around 2 meter this bitch chuldent hack it and walked 2 x after a few hours she been out on rest since end of last season and will try again this year point being if I whuld of been digging in my old place I never whuld of new the bitch was due to walk and whuld of been filed with false hope about the bitch So for me a good stiff dig anyway of the week rather than a hand full of 30 minute digs imo ther for puppy's and not a seasons worker but I do understand pest control is pest control and the quarry needs accounting for regardless of what dog is used in what earth

I agree Jiggy, it's great that we have someone promoting us in this day and age. I do think the other fieldsports organisations do defend terrierwork but the IWTF is probably the only one promoting terrierwork.

I've also noticed that they're one of the only organisations to address the fools on FaceBook.

true its organizations like this that show our sport in a professional organized manner in the pursuit of humane pest control with respect for terrier and quarry. Without that the media will continue to show us in poor light. Hopefully groups like this can continue to educate the media if they get enough support from geniune hunting people. Edited by jiggy
