I got to page 7 then jumped to the this page did I miss anything?

Treating foxes has sporting animals has been forgotten, that's why it's called hunting and not killing.what pleasure anyone can get out of shooting a fox or rabbit that can't see you is beyond me,shot

when I was a partridge keeper I used to do ten thousand a year and partridges are in and out the pen in about 12 hours, if you not on your game fox wise your stuffed, I am still on the same land with

Never read so much crap in my life,my beddy x has probably put more gear to bed on shoot days than most have had lamping all season 😂😂

my dog lamps 5 nights a week on 2 estates with the keepers,ferret and help on a dig,yes he’s gundog trained but only because people said it couldn’t be done and can be called off deer but will get on when required.
here he is in a class of labs as a pup.

That’s impressive if it can be called off deer. The dogs I’ve had that loved the deer game, would leave a hare to chase a deer. I’ve owned a dog that could be called of, but she never really loved the deer. She was chasing them, rather than trying to kill them.. massive difference.

I broke him to deer to start with which was relatively easy just approached it the same as any stock but I couldn’t help myself old habits die hard so yes he’ll run them but it’s handy on a shoot day to call off and he don’t scream and shout if he sees them, however the first shoot day 2 seasons ago I didn’t see the roe break other side of cover and he retrieved that one in front of the keeper 🤦🏼‍♂️
Any lurcher in a beating line must like a ginger as there’s always a shout up and it’s got me some great nights out on keepers land most wont get on.

You’ve not coursed daytime on the fens recently then? If your on the land for any length of time, the police soon arrive... and if your dog is hunting up for hares, 9/10 the hare only gets 10 or 20 yards law.. that’s not coursing in my eyes. 

Not recently,even In my time we had an habit of interrupting a gallop to dodge plod,it was part and parcel of owning a runner then.The art of coursing was the art of being undetected,impossible then,even more impossible now.If it was easier in my time ive nothing but admiration for the folk that take their chances now.

As we have none in our parts i got not idea , hope there not like hares you can live on them but they taste like shite 😂 

Hares and deer are the two nicest tasting meats though some birds are good too. Almost any game is better than farmed meat IMHO. Broiler chicken and the like have had the flavour bred out over the years.
