    nice pics mick.... also just a general thing with ticks....... use tweezers and make sure you remove as close to the skin as possible and make sure you pull the whole tick out.......then dab with a suitable antiseptic.....

    dont be tempted to cover tick with vaseline to suffocate it....although it works sometimes they regurgitate their guts into the host sometimes causing infection....
    check the dogs for them as they are rife o sheep pastures at the moment....

    cheers

    well i tryed abit of back netting the other night. never got nowt but christ the amount of rabbits about is unreal. thinking maybe send the ferret down 1 set just for afew bunnies for food. ( one for tinfoil in the hotbox for few hours) i havent seen any small rabbits like just them mid size bunnies.

    if i took the gun tbe other night i would have getting 20easy n 30 at a push. but whats the point in making the ferreting hard in the next few month.

    i took the little fella with me and he was even chasing the rabbits on the lamp when we were getting 10yards off them. so funny watching 2patterdales and a 7year old running after rabbits.

    its getting cold up in cumbria these last few mornings. think next week be the start for me doing the small sets for afew weeks then start on the big boys sets.

    bamboo on the 37meter long net. cannot wait to get started like.

    me n my little lad went out 3weeks today i think or 2weeks not sure. been meaning to post but keep getting side tracked with work.

    after our sunday dinner we had a look out for hour or so. as we walked to the sets rabbits were running everywhere. 2 went into a 1holer which i slipped the net over n jill in. within moments bang one rabbit out n renetted. the noise was unreal for a while but jill came out so thought i better leave the bunny as it must have been giving her the run about.

    20yards away a few rabbits went to ground. the noise of the rabbits running about was loud but this was agood size set bit to big for the jill on the 1st outing. 1rabbit bolted but got out the net before the numpty ferreter got to it. i put it down to my sunday roast.

    then the rabbit i never bolted from the 1holer came out looked at us ran up the bank sat for a few seconds then rubbed its head n ear with its back leg n jumped in the bush.


    as i was saying to my lad 1 is good enough for me n he was saying but dad there is rabbits over there. pointing to another set.i seen the owner of abit land next to were i was n went n seem him n ended up with more land to work the ferrets n when rats come in the dogs.

    4 rabbits were sat next to a set on the way to the road so when they went to ground i give them 10min the put the jill in. once again the noise was class. bang one hit the net but i was fooking about n it kicked out the net. the next 3 were not that lucky n never lived another day n all that crack.

    well 4 in the bag n 2 missed n more local land it hit. wasnt a bad afternoon on the ferrets.

    came home and sorted rabbits. i kept a skin n made a tanned rabbit fur. looks great now just not sure what to do with it like.

    any ideas?
