THE LUNATIC

Recommended Posts


Dropped my grandson off at a little bit that we have permission on the borders a small shooting estate with 2 25yds preset nets a dozen purse nets and 2 ferrets and a little lurcher bitch, around 2pm I received a txt from him asking to be picked up, on arrival to pick him up and asking what he'd caught I was told 8 pheasant and 1 rabbit, he'd seen the birds feeding and set the 2 nets across 2 rides and had preceded to walk the birds into the net along with the aid of the little bitch

micky touched on fighting with other netters in his post. a couple of Derbyshire towns well known for netting years ago. lots of tales were they would get on set & find someone else's nets already set they would then cut both lines & mesh. fxck knows if they could see state of things today what they would make of rabbit population & the fxxking nanny state.

We. Never. Did. That. In my day. When I wax a young. En. We all. Wanted meat. Thatcher. Days. Life was. Cut short. To the ground. So we was all mates. Unlike. Today it seems.

I think the only Thatcher you seen or knew  worked on a roof buddy  as micky said all the best places were guarded and fisty cuffs weren't uncommon

Remember listening to tales of pegging on the Wentworth Estate by the late Bush Mangam and some of the run ins they had and old Bush was no stranger to violence remember him getting 18 months jail at the age of 72 for poaching birds and actual bodily harm. I had some shifts out with a team of peggers around me in the 80s 4 drops we did on one windy night think we ended up with about 70 odd rabbits it was hard graft I know that and even though they were mates they used to moan like feck about lamping with lurchers witch was beginning to get popular around s.yorks in the late 70s early 80s.
