    you ever seen kits during the winter when the snow is on the bottom? i only seen it once up brampton cumbria. i think if the sets are deep enough they will still bread.

    those are some canny bags from both of you, no doubt those pics will make my son lee jealous, he only gets two's or three's then comes home cos they are just for the pot.. hopefully this fourth coming year some bigger more rabbit infested permission will be gained..

    we all started off with 1s& 2s paul ,its great to see the yougsters keeping the tradition ,its getting more & more difficult to get & keep permission ,sometimes i drive 150 mile round trip for 12 rabbits but you have to be there when the farmer wants you ,good luck to the young fella cheers pete

    yeah we have to travel toget bags of bunnys to. Paul i have permission of the hurst farm near trimdon and fishburn for ferreting and i not seen a rabbit yet. Its rather crazy round our parts peter if you dont drive through a village and dont see a kid with his camo gear on with dog or ferret box it means the schools are on.ha ha

    aye.. ya right there mick.... kids in camo gear with a carrybox and dog.... sounds just like my kid and his mates !!!and if your driving through coxhoe or kelloe it probably is my son and his mates.....

    peter.... got permission on a couple of small farms locally but the rabbit population is very small but it fills 1/2 a day if they are bolting..

    cheers
    Paul

    rabbits are so hard to find round trimdon its unreal some times it makes you think if your ferrets are working. Then you go to a place were you gettin 5s and 6s out off a 10holer. Paul i got a dvd with ferrets 200yards of long nets 3or 4 shotguns filmed in wales. You wanna lend it? Any1 no where i could get a couple of wild polecats from?

    lol while the kids are out with the ferrets & dogs they arnt on the streets causing trouble its good to see the youngsters out ,as for the rabbits they are getting in short supply all over cos the night vision lads & lampers get a very lot early on after the first cuts of grass , im lucky cos my main farm is surrounded by national trust woods & theres plenty of warrens in there which keeps my warrens topped up ,but if i ws to rifle it at night there wouldnt be many left ,i usually allways keep my main ferreting untill after xmas cheers lads
