New hunting buddy

Post by SPEEDY » Sat Jan 07, 2017 4:35 am

I visited a mate today and he had a few extra kits, so one kind of followed me home :whistle:
I haven't had a Ferret in years and miss the smelly little buggers, I'm looking forward to running him with my whippet in a couple of months.

I've decided to go back to the old method of getting easier access to hunting grounds with a bit of ferreting and then once a little trust is earned then try and get a little fox whistling or spotlighting access as well :pray:

Friendly little bugger too, doesn't spook or try to bite, the whippet has gotten used to him already, but the blue dog still gets pretty worked up.

My whippet got used to the ferrets quick smart. Infact they used to sleep together.

The Heeler might take a bit of settling down, but you know how working dogs can be.

Nice one Speedy l, I used to ferret years ago but haven't since I got married eight years ago, I think I'll have to look into getting one again

Been ten years for me, but it's still fun in my memory.

I'm even thinking of giving snares a go, going right back to my basics that I did as a kid.

Boy does that take me back. Nice one and hope that it leads into some shooting access for you.
