couple days ferreting

Recommended Posts

Had a good start on monday with ferrets and glen( white dog), always good when you see rabbits bolt early. First stop was Hawick in the Scottish borders for the first bit of rabbit control. The land owner had rabbits in the garden and asked if I could help out. An hour later was finished and 2 rabbits up. Glen was on the ball and the hob worked well.

After that headed over to coldingham for the next bit of rabbit control. It didn't look like there was much about, the land owner had said hed been shooting rabbits in the summer and numbers down. Netted alot of holes without any rabbits bolting. Can only catch whats there 

Out in fife yesterday with ferrets and kelt(brindle bitch). Rabbits were destroying the winter barley so i was asked to help out. Ferrets worked hard, bloody hob wouldnt let any rabbits bolt, had a few digs. Kelts marking was spot on.

Excellent pal, better than sat in ye house, I sure that’s the dog I really liked a few years ago when you posted a bit more?(white one I mean?)

 

was out for few hours ourselves today but worked real hard for what we got an looks like we had been beaten to the punch by somebody as I found a nice new net laid over a hole😁 

 

it’s new land my boss has not long bought so it’s prob somebody that’s been doing it for a while, have to get it done earlier next year 🤣🤣 but I wouldn’t deny anybody anbot sport an as I only one with permission I’ll turn a blind eye unless it becomes a pain in hole 😁

Thought that was the dog, turned out nice,

 

I find when walking about a ferret box am quick set on shoulders an spade in hand as a walking stick 😂 ye shouldn’t need much else mate, once ye get used to it then it’s easier then bag a purse nets an stuff imo, ain’t anybody up your way to show ye the ropes pal? If ye ever doon this way drop me a message mate an we get a walk out😉

With hedges pal try using stop nets throo the hedges an a few purse nets, to stop the hole hoppers. That’s how I approach em anyways where possible 😉
