You wait for the end of season - we are ferreting flat out, purse nets, long nets etc and just can’t get round all of the permo and catch all of the rabbits we have to go at. But woe betide anyone who poaches a few...... we shall tell the keepers and burn out their van ........ type posts 😂

Couple places I've been to are holding acouple rabbits but nothing much , I recon by time season comes mixy and natural predation would of wiped most of them out, unless I'm willing to travel 2 or 3 hours then am not getting any decent numbers this season same as the last 4 season befor it , rabbit number in most the places are low to none existing, won't be long till I'm packing in and getting an allotment lol

Farmer said no, not because he didnt want to, but there is a syndicate who pay to shoot on his land and apparently they are going to sort it. I did get the horse field on the opposite side, which i think is part of same warrens 🤣

They probably don't want 2 sort it but said that as they felt obliged, most syndicate members just want 2 pay the money and turn up on shoot days ,find out who the are bet they let u if u offer 2 beat 

Failing that it gets dark 😁
