I’ve never been lamping before and know much about it but when you go lamping should you put the red filter on or not.Because it’s hardest to see with the red filter but isn’t that invisible to animals? And then the normal light isn’t that good because it blinds the rabbits or makes them confused? I pointed my lamp up a field from my house so there was no other way of me scarring the rabbit but when I put the lamp on the rabbit it ran away but how is lamping possible if the rabbits run away as soon as they see the light? I don’t know anything about lamping and I’m  just trying to find out a bit

If uv got a lamp, air rifle and ferrets best way to learn is to just get yourself out after em as much as possible. Every escaped rabbit and unsuccessful trip out will be a learning curve ( nowt wrong

Sorry I can't talk 2 u again 😔 

Why would you think the lad at it? He may well be, but I don’t see anything stupid? Anything dodgy? Or any sort of fishing going on in the lads posts, seems quite genuine, could be wrong tho.

Rabbits don’t get confused or blinded by the light,  they might squat the first time they ever get Lamped or in high winds, but usually they are up an running as soon as they see the light, just like you noticed

the idea of lamping rabbits is to try an use the weather, no moon means it’s dark, an wind or rain mask the sound, if you trying to get to the rabbits holes, whilst it’s still out feeding in the field, once you get between the rabbits, an it’s safety( the burrows) then you can shine the lamp on rabbit, let the dog see it an then slip the dog, it depends on you being able to get between the rabbits whilst out feeding an where it wants to be when it realises danger is coming 👍

I can't see nothing with a red filter , must be the colour blindness, but prior to the last year I've had perfect vision, could spot eyes miles off , but red filter couldn't tell if it was a sheep or a pug tbh

Have you got a rifle? Do you use Facebook? There’s a few very good air rifle shooters near you that have a group on Facebook 😉

I’ve got an air rifle and I don’t use Facebook but I’ve got it. What’s the group called?
