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.

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.

Manny Shinwell the labour minister for power authorised open cast mining after the war and turned the estate into a big slag heap for a wile just out of spite and vindictiveness for the landed gentry the miners union never bought Wentworth Woodhouse which now belongs to a trust after having a few private owners.
