They've been trying to stop people hunting with dogs since the Norman conquest, it's not happened yet and isn't likely to. It's brazen idiots that make it hard, keep your head down, mouth shut and keep off fb and life would be a lot easier.

It’s not as easy as that I’m afraid 

I’ve known and fraternised with lads who do very little to publicise what they do and have been approached by the police on one occasion and stopped numerous times since. 

This is in areas that don’t have designated task forces to combat “rural crime”

if rabbits are removed from the menu , so to speak , we are basically f****d. You can justify your reasons being there with the rabbitting cover , i know at least 3 very serious groups of terrier lads who have packed in due to  it not being worth’s the hassle anymore 

shocking

On the other hand the general public will  never see a genuine poacher.

Don't talk wet

Aren't early episodes of Heartbeat aired on the drama channel anymore ?

Big difference being in the public eye razzing around on someone’s land threatening every fooker .to sneaking around using a lurcher for what it was originally bred for.. supp ? Got ya 4x4 stuck ?.

It is not quite a police state yet that we live in, its not yet illegal to just go out for a drive! rabbits can not be used as an excuse if you have no permission to be on land in the area, you admit to chasing rabbits you can be reported for poaching and that opens up a complete new can of worms gear confiscated etc this has always been the case even before the ban. Anyone out with me is told to say nothing other than " we are out for a drive " I  do all the talking and all they get out of me is " out for a drive and I am now going home NOW " I've had them asking why are you in this area half a dozen times they get my answer twice then nothing other than silence and a vacant look. IF IN DOUBT SAY NOWT!!!!!!!!

Rabbits are only a legal quarry with permission.

Absolute disgrace to jail a man for hunting rabbits permission or not, especially when you think of some of the crimes people get off with or get a slap in the wrist about. That judge is obviously an anti wanker if he thinks that is barbaric. The world is away mad, The way things are going this game hasn't long left. 

Mate if everyone has that out look on it then they mayaswell pack in and turn vegan along with the rest of this shit hole of a country now, drugs are banned but people still do them, if running with lurchers gets banned people will still do it so it's never going to die just keep a positive attitude and keep doing what u enjoy and f**k everyone else u only live once 👌

when you have never had permission it changes nothing. you carry on doing what you have always done.

A judge will be rushing through that many cases on court day that they won't give you a second thought if you can't prove your case and all they want is their lunch break.They will generally take the coppers word unless they have reason to believe different so  If the copper or landowner is lying make sure you can catch them out in court as unreliable evidence and it will be struck out. If you can afford it get a barrister and try get off on a technicality like charged under the wrong section, etc but if you walk in there and plead guilty then don't be whinging and do your whack.👍

If it was just rabbits surely he can’t get done for that ? 

You still can if you're poaching and his previous is what put the brass hat on it.

I'm not saying it's easy, just that it's easier if you apply some common sense. 

Getting caught is no doubt easier, more people about, more technology, cameras, phones etc. But on the upside the punishments have scaled down from cutting off hands or transportation so it's swings and roundabouts.

People have always hunted and I believe they always will, it's instinct.

Tips;

Be smart where you park, preferably walk, but beware injuries happen so have a plan if your a distance from vehicle eg first aid, phone a friend.

Don't set patterns, change times and locations.

Don't be frivolous with light when lamping.

If in doubt drop.

Collect game later, but beware a cache can turn into an easy ambush.

Loose lips and pics sink ships.

Be respectful to land to give a low profile and allowing for future endeavours (it just makes sense, if a farmer sees your lamp at night and it's damage free the next day it might keep him bed as apposed to damaged property)

Get permission and stick to rabbits, there a great quarry.

Failing that be legal and don't give others a bad rep.

A good way to be joe and very similar to how I was told how  a properly mannered man should act  in those circumstances

Was caught early eighties on a keepered estate ferreting no dog involved keeper took nets and tried to take ferts cops arrived let me keep ferrets as apparently they couldn't seize livestock only equipment went to local district court and they tried to do me with taking ground game without a licence slash permission that covers all ground game hares rabbits pheasant partridge my lawyer argued that rabbits weren't classed as game long story short got £20 quid fine and done for in pursuit of coneys apparently rabbits change their name to coney when they live on a private estate £20 was a lot of money back then had to pay it £2 a week thank Christ I had a paper round😁

rabbits only classed, as game if poached or taken on a sunday ,it was just another petty law made by the gentry to keep the working class in there place as per usual ?

It's a disgrace what happend to that man and I hope he has appealed against a sentence straightaway  even if he was caught with a load rabbits still doesn't  deserve  that shit . He might of been on land with his dog  but I am sure if asked to leave .it would of been  so so simple   this country  is a f***ing joke
