    Great pics and just fantastic to see the wee fella out netting - brings back great memories.

    Just one thing on your last pic I was taught to pin below the burrow and put the net up over the hole whereas you pin on top and drop the net down over the hole.

    The reason we pinned below was the rabbit was well into the purse before if tightened,and it cleared the hole allowing you to immeaditly put another net in to cover the hole as you dealt with the netted bunny.

    Well done and thanks you for sharing

    Aye, watched a program about him getting new teeth Aled, must say his partner has some set of teeth, they can't be her own surely.

    Been at this for over 30 year and ferreted with a lot of folk over the years and I can honestly say not one of them has pegged the net below the hole. Was taught by an old warrener years ago to peg above the hole and to tuck the bottom ring of the net into the hole, this way the rabbit is already well into the net as it exits the hole, a foot outside the hole it will be pursed in the net.

    Seen a lot of rabbits bolting out, hitting the net only to stop and turn before the net has pulled tight, that's why I like them pursing as soon as possible.

    Well done Brodie and your no to bad either Tam Looks like some nice easy ground to do .I will have to get back out too
    I have always put the peg in above so as the net purses a lot quicker .But every one to there own If it works hey ho
