Yes - in two pieces it fits nicely into an average sized rucksack. A full length shovel (in two pieces) was a little too long for concealed carry.

Concealed carry 🤣😂🤣😂 you make it sound like it's a gun

Everything lols good but with experience with screw thread it will turn 

better off with. Connection similar but where slips in 

and you have screw with wing nut drilled through 

not that much methier to put together 

and won’t turn with wear

Agreed. That’s why the nut is included on the shaft’s thread - it can be tightened down onto the ferrule to prevent turn.

It’d be very straight forward to drill through and insert a bolt with a wingnut.

It’s all good what I can see 

just adding comment  through experience using such tool 

they tend to wear and turn off set or turn as your digging with thread 

I’ve got couple and still use 

but best I’ve had even though it’s bit and only bit of pain is with the pin going through 

“small screw and wing but that low down you won’t catch your hand 

let’s face it 

realistically if you’ve got to conceal it in a bag youl put up with any thing 

but that’s the nature of the game 

thanks to mo Ike phones etc 🙈

looks smart any how 👍

Like this? Just modified my own two piece shovel. 8mm stainless bolt with washer and wingnut. 👍

      Good afternoon Chaps,
      Been working a new bitch this season, who’s incredibly game. Had two successful digs to her, she worked the both Charlie’s very well with no encouragement from me and held up well until I got through. 
      However, on the last two occasions she’s rocketed in and bayed straight away with pure excitement. After locating her in a short time I’ve dug down to find her baying at fresh bedding /or a tight spot. I’m embarrassed to say on one occasion a rabbit has bolted in the far end of the earth (which is something I don’t want to encourage at all). Although she’s wasn’t or anywhere near that particular hole I don’t want to encourage behaviour that results in a buggered dog. 
       
      can someone cast some experience/insight into this and let me know what they think.
       
      also there’s a second part to this question, as country becomes more and more tight I find myself going out on fewer occasions - has anyone found this a negative impact on their dogs? I’m worried I can’t keep they’re head in the game if I fail to provide the correct volume of work.
       
      Go steady,

      We’re keen to introduce our 2 year old Jack Russell to ratting.
      We’re based in East Devon. Are there any local groups or anyone that can teach us / her the ropes?

      I’ve just finished reading Nick Stevens book called “An obsession” and found it a really good read with a great insight into the life of a professional terrier man (Pre-ban). 

      It got me wondering what made a great terrier man for the hunt, I know there are the obvious answers but Nick went into great depths discussing the success in fox population from good cover-laying in comparison to building artificials and went into great detail about the country and we’ll know earths. 
      are there any well weathered terrier men  that could cast their opinions into the past world of hunting and what made a great terrier man that boosted the odds for the hounds. 
       
      Go steady

      Letting off the lead - 
      Hello chaps, I was given a Powell bread bitch from a close friend who didn’t have the space nor time to accommodate. She came to my kennels at seven months, very game and unfortunately doesn’t always mix well with other dogs. 
       
      I like to be able to walk mine off the lead, have them stock broken and have some recall! But this bitch is the most pig headed thing, off the lead, her head goes down and she’s off. I’ve tried and tried to improve things but she will not listen. 
       
      Since having her I’ve accommodated for her ways and brought her on slowly, she went to work for the first time and was superb. I kept quiet, allowed her to mark on her own,  go in and locate the quarry. She’s a fierce bitch that shows great hart with a good voice on her. Sadly since then she still is a sod if there’s nothing to keep her interest she’ll get her head down and bugger off, I’m finding myself paranoid she’ll vacate a spot and f#ck off across country. My biggest concern if she does it and disappears on me It could really spoil a day out. I know it’s still early days to cast judgements but I wanted to see if anyone had been in a similar place?
       
      Many thanks
