I like your script fellah....👏 If you need a chat,...call me,... and I'll try to offer a wee bit of advice.....👍

Possibly not, unfortunately I don't have it all figured out yet. She's still with me now and even if she doesn't get going and only fulfils her potential as a pot licker and not a pot filler she will

Cheers.

I've heard and also read about the rabbit of the North being easier to catch, my guess would be the the type of ground it calls home, how true it all is I couldn't say, I've also seen a few dogs around here that would catch decent numbers on a night, but not since late 90's early 2000's when I was out and about as a boy with my old man. Personally for me, if we caught 2 or 20 it was something I absolutely loved doing. They may not have been "the best" or seen by others as "top rabbiting dogs" but they certainly gave me some great memories.

🤔 The easiest rabbits, are the ones hanging on your carrying straps,...nothing is ever certain, until its captured...

The catching of rabbits is a varied old subject, and is not quite as cut and dry as some folk imagine...😉

I envy lads who harbour definitive opinions and who are not hampered by the realities of constantly playing away from home...A well known terrier man once said to me, 'that a rabbit is a rabbit',...no matter whereabouts it runs, in the UK... 🤔

I have hunted throughout the land, and I have not found this to be the case...far more variables than one might think..

Hopefully we shall all have plenty of conies to pursue this Winter,..it would be a crying shame, to say goodbye...🙏

Got one place I go. One side the hedge grass is always long and rabbits seem abit slower. Go the other side the fields are grazed tight by sheep and horses all year around. They seem to have a rocket up there arse and there is far more slipping from the dog on turning. Makes you realise how types of land play a difference

Just had a couple hours out with a member off here and the bushers, probably saw 15 -20 rabbits, as it’s a nice little spot. But would have seen half a dozen roe. If I go lamping tonight I’d see five deer faster than ten rabbits. 
 

Tend to just enjoy hunting the bunnies now with the little dogs and don’t put a lot of effort into trying to kill them.
