    FERRETING, LAMPING, LONGNETTING, WRITING ARTICLES FOR 'THE COUNTRYMAN'S WEEKLY', MAKING VARIOUS TYPES OF NETS, AND SHORE FISHING!
  1. I remember my first ferret mate, here she is= PRETTY 'EH? :blink: ferret.bmp :blink:
  2. On one of my permissions the farmer has ten thousand chickens in big sheds, they are allowed outside access if they want it, but only a small percentage bother to go outdoors! These seem slightly different in their attitudes to the majority although they are all the same breed. I was leaning on the fence post watching them on Sunday afternoon and they were in little cliques of half a dozen or so, suddenly a rabbit hopped under the fence, and then another joined it! The nearest bunch of chickens ran at them and seemed to mob the two bunnies and soon saw them off! Is there a chicken fancier on here who could tell me if this is a common occurrence? I will certainly think twice in future before calling someone a 'chicken' these chickens were hard enough to get in to the SAS I reckon!
  3. REMOVED DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST.
  4. MATE, TRY jamesb30463@aol.com he's good with prices, quick delivery and reliable in selling good gear. I buy lots of gear off him, he lives in Scotland but is quick to post off the goods. Hope this helps, Merry Christmas Mate, Longnetter.
  5. Dungeness eh', do those coneys glow in the dark mate? I can get you more ground out at CHERNOBYL if you want it! NICE ONE MATE, GOOD CATCH THERE!
  6. 'THE ART OF LONGNETTING' Glenn Waters. I sent NNPULSE an email telling him that there is a bloke from the Midlands selling a copy on Ebay, he never put in a bid, so I think it's still up for grabs. midnightjake selling on HUNTING= OTHER HUNTING. P/S it ain't me, I live in Brighton, just trying to be helpful, it's £6.50 at present with 20 hours left, item 7183276962. Hope it helps.
  7. best I can do mate, the man in the picture is one simon whitehead, a legend in his own lunchtime and also a nice bloke, he sometimes contributes to this and other forums! :yp:
  8. THE LAW CLEARLY STATES THAT IF THE PRODUCERS OR THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS SAY THAT NO MORE WILL BE RUN OFF IT GOES OUT OF COPYRIGHT. NOW THEN, PHIL LLOYD WHO WAS IN WITH TRAPLINE VIDEOS SAYS IN CONEY CATCHER {'GET YOURSELF A COPY OF THE ART OF LONGNETTING BY GLENN WATERS PRODUCED BY TRAPLINE VIDEOS, THERE ARE NO MORE BEING RUN OFF, SO IF YOU HAVE TO BEG, BORROW OR STEAL ONE, THEY ARE WELL WORTH IT, HONESTLY!' ] SO ALL THINGS BEING EQUAL, THE COPYRIGHT HAS RUN OUT AND IT IS NOW A FREE FOR ALL SITUATION IN REGARDS TO WHO CAN SELL THE MOST, GOOD LUCK TO MY LUCKY BUYER, YOU GOT THAT VIDEO CHEAP, now make yourself a few bob whilst spreading the video around and giving that special knowledge to our hunting fraternity! p/s LET ME HAVE A COPY MATE, JUST FOR OLD TIMES SAKE!
  9. Taking the moral high ground are you mate? the same man who asked, in this very thread for 'a copy of a copy, if you can get it?' No mate, the original goes on ebay, a copy stays with me, WELL THAT WAS THE PLAN, but one of the members of this forum has now purchased the original, but I've not lost out and still have my copy to watch! All's well that ends well, and if this member see's fit, he will no doubt have a copy available to anyone with the shekels to pay for it!
  10. Well done mate, it takes a lot of perseverance to keep something going that long, there are loads of genuine people in the ferret world, you are obviously one, good on you mate, keep the faith!
  11. I had trouble getting to see this farmer about permission to rabbit his land, he was never about when I called around, but eventually agreed to let me go. The rabbit buries are massive, with steps leading down into them, loads of bunks and even cooking facilities, they even have their own armoury!
  12. The best way in the world as far as I'm concerned, been doing it for a very long time and STILL learning! Caught this the other night, it tried to bite me, but not for long! Anybody know how to skin and tan the bloody thing! Joking apart though mate, it's a real learning curve, I'm off for a couple of hours tonight, solo, because my longnetting mate is on a promise tonight and doesn't want to be disturbed! I use my own system now, a cross between Glenn Waters, Brian Brinded and a few innovations of my own. Everybody has to find their own way, there is no such thing as right or wrong, if it works for you, fair play, go out and enjoy it! The area I'm at tonight has late feeding rabbits, I'm not joking now, some areas seem to feed late at night others earlier in the evening. This area has walkers and motorcycles around until dark and then it settles down a bit, where on the other hand, one of the farms that I do has late afternoon rabbits, I think this is because there are no public footpaths and apart from the farmer and one tractor driver it is relatively human free. I won't tell you I catch hundreds at a time, that's the realms of fantasy, but I do alright and that suits me! Sorry mate, got carried away there, yes it can be effective in daylight hours, but don't expect miracles on the first attempt!
  13. How about this for a good catch of moles? notice the white one near the middle? how rare is that then?, No, I didn't catch them, it was an old rustic back in Worcestershire. I asked him to show me how but he wouldn't 'my tricks is my tricks, no ****** else's!' was his reply. Dad you can be a real miserable *** sometimes! :unsure:
  14. What about a drop trap, or two? if you're in a situation where you more or less have to oblige them to keep your permission, maybe they might just be the answer?
  15. Re petrol debate, I've got a vehicle that doesn't need petrol, it runs on water, I've decided to call it a CANOE! :unsure:
