yes mate definitely feels like ferreting weather. nettles did not feel quite so sharp and cover go back well now. some very sticky ground though dug a few 3 feet plus and were still wet. i think that was why they were reluctant to bolt

had a good morning today in a small orchard/garden . took my 3 year old son for his first trip as he is getting on a bit now lol along with his 70 year old grandad. my terrier did some nice marks and we accounted for 6 nice clean rabbits. dug 3 and had the others in the long net. not the biggest bag but very enjoyable watching my dogs and ferrets work so well. just need to get my little lad on the spade now

You done well not always about the numbers just good to get out and have a go, we are going on our first trip tomorrow now that we are getting frosts hopefuly vegetation will die down nettles are still up but we have so much ground to cover,will let you no how i get on..

Good effort wizard!!

Yes we worked 2 jacks along a hedgeline which worked well, had some cracking 30 yard plus shots with the 28, having just looked on just cartridges site have you ever used viri fob cartridges i see they do one but no nothing about them.

Dan and i were out today for a couple of hours testing out  his new ferrets, they worked well on what was an ultra long hedge warren. We were out smarted by a couple of rabbit who slipped past us, that said i'm not surprised we missed a few holes as the warren was so big, i'm sure both dan, myself & the dog will sharpen up as the season progresses and we hope to see an increase in bag size! All in all a good day out in lovely countryside in beautiful weather....just a shame its monday tomorrow.

Yep a great morning and perfect weather for it. New ferrets worked well and didn't get tired. 3 good size rabbits so it was a good result. Looking forward to our next outing.
