What use would a bushing dog be for ferreting ?

Is that a serious question?

One of the best ferreting dogs I ever seen was a JRT. Same stamp as the bitch in this thread. If you are ferreting hedges then they are worth having. 

This litter looks just the job for bushing. ATB with the pups whoever has them.

Can they catch bolters like a whippet? Is a whippet or lurcher not as good as marking or holding netted rabbits in or out of cover?

No they can't catch bolters like a whippet though they can nab them if in the right place. But if you use nets does it matter
Lurchers and whippets can mark fine. I have one my self. 
But the simple fact is a lurcher no matter how good at cover it is can't get where a busher can get like the terrier types.

Hows a lurcher meant to get in there.

or a big old bramble bank. Lots of times around here you will find a nice little 2 holer on the edge of bank empty because the rabbit is sat in the cover but nine times out of ten if you flush it it will end up in the little easy two holer

Don't get me wrong my lurcher can do a good job from out side as well

Only reason I got a lurcher for ferreting was because it opens up the lamping scene so I work the dog during the week.
Just my findings around here.
But for ferreting this dog would trump the lurcher every time.

Lad I used ferret with had a terrier ,he would put purse nets on the ones he could get too and then would put nets draped over runs in and out of the hedge , the terrier would work loose in the hedge row she would catch some in the hedge from holes that were unable to be netted , around 3 she develed the nack of sitting back just of the hole entrance and nab them as they bolted , if they managed to bolt and miss the nets placed on the runs then the lurcher would mop up , he used her a lot on pheasant shoots were he wasn’t aloud to take a lurcher , unfortunatly she is a Barron bitch so he could never take a litter from her
