Depends what area your in I got a few good pockets in my area. But you got to run about fair not to loose them in dips in the fields 👍🏻

That's where my dog normally catches just out the lamp where the land drops off. I know places on the moor where bunnys are plenty but not that you can catch um sat right along the edge just outside there holes. Other places that had plenty start of the season seem to have zero on the ground now

I haven’t got anywhere on the moors. But a few on the edge still holding and a good number. Nice place by the sea holds a good number but can only go there daytime for a dog walk 😉

My bull x was hanging upside down 1 night.back leg trapped in 2 strands of barb wire proper stuck. 

That was hard work trying to get him free from it..

You are right it's horrible stuff.

Over here that accounts for a lot of dead roos,around me you won't go 100m without seeing a chewed off roo leg still in the fence.No getting out of that.

Brutal, seen a fair few deer over the years hung up in fences. What’s chewing the Roos legs off? Dingos?

There’s no perfect land only a perfect place an that’s layed on the sofa because you can ensure no dog got damaged asleep on the sofa 👍🏼 It’s one of them things if you work em they will pick up injuries no matter how careful you are I’ve had dogs that are mainly greyhound bred that have served well with minimal injury throughout there career and I’ve had dogs with a fair bit of base blood that have picked up injury’s more readily on the same land that racey dogs never picked up none it all swings in roundabouts

Looks good socks, is that your perfect dog or hopefully your perfect dog. My point was the diversity of different land , what dog can do it all, i had a saluki whippet that was brilliant on woodland work, i wont say coursing because its intermittent short dangerous runs, that gave me near bloody heart attacks watching her she was 23tts weighing in at 32lbs could turn on a six pence, but she was no hare dog only ever caught a couple.But to get a dog to run all types of land requires a variation in size and weight in my opinion.

Mainly barbed but sometimes highly strung plain wire.The roos bounce down on the top wire,push it past the second wire and that's it,probably the same for your dog.After you saying that I'm going to take a small pair of bolt cutters in my bag.your dog was lucky you were there.

Yeah,I've seen them do it,I've tried to save rarer type wallabies from it but they usually have bone sticking out so it's kinder to put down.Horrible death for them,they could be stuck for days.

Occasionally but the foxes,feral dogs usually chew them down,just see the bottom part of the leg left in the wire.
