The way i have said to do this the net shoots out no problem the next time you use it, it should end up looking like this.

Thats the way i like to pick me long nets up, but when I lay them, I just put one end pin in the ground, run all the net off the put the other end pin in the ground so the net is tight, then peg it up.

An uncle of mine, who used to catch a lot of rabbits up until WW2, told me not to try longnetting in bright moonlight because the rabbits scream like hell. Perhaps it was because he was nearly allways somewhere that he shouldn't have been.

Rabbit hunter the way you do it is fine, but,when there is a lot of sticks and leaves on the ground the net can become tangled before you have finnished setting it.but as i say if it works dont knock it .

I have a rabbit problem on a local farm. Namely the rabbits live on an embankment of slip road to a dual carriageway. This embankment is lit up with street lighting. I can't shoot it as there are other roads near by. I've snared a few rabbits in the past. As well as shooting some rabbits that wonder out into the middle of the field.

I've heard of a set net. Basically, a net that is placed out during the day time, but the bottom string is raised so that rabbits can walk underneath the net. Thus allowing rabbits out into the field to feed. Allegedly all a person has to do is pull a string at one end the net and the net sets itself.

Is this true, or is someone talking the ****.

Thanks Elma

Elma, what you heard is sort of true but there is a lot more to it than putting the net up,and waiting for the rabbits to pass under it. You have to leave the net there untill the rabbits get used to passing under it. Of course that is asking for your net to go walkabouts! If you do want to try it, i would place the net as close to the fence as possible that way they would take it as part of the fence. The mechanics of dropping the net vary. The most popular way seems to be have the net suspended on poles with pins attached to a string, so when you pull the string the pins come out and the net drops into position. Try a few ideas out your self you'll be supprised what you will come up with.

Tiercel.

the method where your longnet is suspended above ground is there an easy way to make the poles yourself because at the moment im broke and cant afford to buy anything
