If I was stating out now then I would use nothing other than a Trammel nets for either day or night time , any man watching them for an hour  would have to say the same .

I refused to use a quick set for a long time but after me nets were pinched the guy I ferret with got a quick set, used it few times an must admit for the ferreting job it’s great, I still like the traditional net tho an the fact it’s so versatile, but likes been said if you ain’t willing to listen  an learn then ye won’t get better, it’s thay simple an no matter. How good ye think ye are with the webs, somebody somewhere will teach ye summat 😁

Iwatched a film on you tube on some blokes long netting up North  they were lamping the rabbits in and though caught a few  their netting up was crap Rabbits were bouncing off one after the other if the had double the Bagging they would have doubled the bag if they had used Trammel nets they would have nabbed the lot

The lights were on to show what was happening but the Rabbits still hit the net and bounced off time and time again , more bagging would have stopped a lot of that , I think that now days  people do not expect to catch a lot so their nets are rigged accordingly  but back in the day the old timers rigged their nets  for a lot more and even with  a lad killing at the back of the net  things could get out off hand .

what are you saying micky? 100% bagging not enough? ie 50yd net = 100yd of netting. would you prefer more than this?

I  don't  know about % but every time I see a net put up I think  that is not enough for me , most nets can deal with one rabbit in a section but could they deal with 4 or 5 , each to their own but I have seen many times that the more bagging a net has the better it catches . In the 50s I was only a kid and just caught the end of it and heard the tales of the old uns and they were fantastic but every one of them wanted more bagging,...…… can you have to much ?

I’ve never used a trammel , I have seen pics and they look well balled up, I must admit I wouldn’t like to kill off and empty a trammel in the dark, as for 100% bagging (kill) in a net, you would be foolish to use any less imo and any more would take a little extra practice to hank up ( properly) .

They can be a pain to get out  but they get in quick enough,  which is what I prefer
