 I have used  long nets with ferrets for many years in certain locations and have done very well but if the holes are fairly  open I much prefer purse nets no matter how many holes there are . Some years ago on a long gone Forum there was a pro Rabbit catcher who among many methods used a quick set Trammel system , he spoke so highly off this type of net I thought I may get one and find out myself , it turned out that every  thing that the man had written about his trammels was true and all I can say is that if I was starting out again today as a young man I would use NOTHING ELSE . I bought my Nets of off Nels0n  on this site and they are Top Notch  I think there is another chap on here that makes good quality nets but I am not sure of his name , if you choose to carry on with the trad Net always remember that Bagging kills the Rabbits  and when I see nets that are shown on this and other sites I nearly always think that they do not carry enough Bagging, but that is just my opinion.

Thanks for the advice lads much appreciated I will pm nelson to see if he can sort me out Also those baskets look top class I'm assuming they came with the net On the subject of using purse nets I find as I normally hunt with bucks I spend half the day putting the nets back up as they are constantly being knocked by the ferrets I would only use purse nets on ground burrows with a small number of holes I also like a bit of sport for the dogs so there's a better chance of a chase with the longnet I appreciate we all have our own way of doing things but that's what makes it interesting and whatever works for you is all that matters Its all about enjoying the day Thanks again lads

this is Nelsons Trammel  , I had just done the sett then chucked the ferrets in alog pile 50 yards away 4 bolted straight away and were caught in a line ,  when I moved up  north the nets were  dropped and I will have to wait till the summer and my hands work and try to untangle them .

When we moved house I had 700 yds a trad netting an a load purse nets  in a drum an somebody lifted it from outside the van we used to move our stuff🤯 was all sorts in the van with back doors wide open but they stole a big plastic drum full a netting 😞 was only away about 10 mins aswell, talk about gutted tho I’d rather they took the sofa or summat😂
