Personally I don't like an East Wind. A old saying " when the wind is in the East the rabbits bolt the least, when the wind is in the West the rabbits bolt the best".

Cheers Arry

How does a rabbit know which way the wind is blowing when it’s down a hole :D

I don't know mate but alway seem to get more lay ups when its in the East. I can't understand why they would not bolt just because its blowing in a particular direction. Was alway quoted to me by my father and other old boys.

I dont know about the weather affecting ferreting but when you have arranged a day out on your days off you got to give it a go 

Does weather matter if ferrets up a rabbits arse coming out the burrow ?.

One thing i do more now is put another change of clothes in the back of the truck so its a dry clean drive home LOL

The best weather that we have found to be is on a calm day not to hot as it is unfair on the ferrets and the dogs. On a hot day we never seem to get any good results and the same on a windy day. When it’s wet and cold forget it I don’t like getting wet and freezing my but of.
