its only going to get worse lads, ive just been banned from the full east riding of Yorkshire for 12 months not even allowed to be in a car with dogs. theres only so long you can keep it up when your

 

 

Can't you use the lurchers for day mooching?

I'm at work through the week and been beating over the weekends so I just lamp them
Well why dont you forget about the beating, and take some responsibility for YOUR dogs

i wouldn't call it a day mate and move them on as this game is very hard to leave. yeah times get hard but its very rare they dont improve and you will regret it mate. then you've lost all you've worked so hard for. give it till at least end of season and see where your at then. things change. just don't make the mistake of making rash decisions you most probably will regret

I know what you mean if they don't get the work,been there when I had mine, I still miss that bitch now and reason I never got another is I would been comparing the two all time and wouldn't be fair ,

Unfortunately I don't have space or time for one as would been tempted by your pup,

Just make sure they go to most suitable homes not the one waving the readies around.

Those gsd lurchers are not suitable for everyone are they.

And I also agree it's easier to go out with couple scruffy mongrelly looking bushing dogs and a nets or catty than couple big lurchers and high powered torch. Just draws attention from all sorts.

No game to me, more a way of life, and i could'nt part with dogs that i consider part of my family, maybe that's just my old fashioned geordie loyalty, but i'd rather that than peeling grapes for toffs

Sad to hear your closing the curtains with regards to your hunting atleast with the lurchers but i do know how tough things are these days..if you've thought it through long & hard & then decided you still want to close shop then best of luck matey..you don't need anyone to tell you how you should run your life..the games become a nightmare,ive had the quietest season ive had by a long way in over 35 years of hunting.. Jobs about f****d & for those saying go and get permission well ive tried for all those 35 years and never EVER got any..without invites i would give up the game too,i know what it's like to lose dogs,big fines,motors confiscated,banned out of counties,banned from keeping hunting dogs,electronic tag,probation,unable to even talk to anyone with a dog or go more than a mile from my house all because of having a run or two..enjoy your stress free life buddy,hope you have some great memories to take with you from the game,the b*****ds can't ever take them away 👍
