    the art of hunting

    Ferrets for Hunting
    Ferrets in the UK are mainly kept for hunting rabbits which do cause severe damage for farmers and crop growers and have to be controlled. Some of the methods used to achieve this leave much to be desired however as they are sometimes gassed underground by the ministry of agriculture using cyanide but this is not always effective, can be dangerous to use and quite indiscriminate in that other creatures sheltering in the warrens are also gassed. Snaring is another very common method used but when you think about the anguish and suffering caused, you realise it can inflict a slow lingering death, and I for one stopped using them a long time ago and now oppose their use. The introduction by man of myxomatosis into the wild UK rabbit population in 1953 was another method tried but although it decimated the population, it inflicted an even slower and painful looking death on the rabbit. The use of ferrets to control rabbits in the following manner is one of the most humane and environment friendly methods there is. When using ferrets the rabbit holes are covered with small purse nets fixed to the ground with a small wooden peg. They are so called because they act like a simple purse in that a nylon drawcord is fed around the outer edge of the net, passing through a metal ring fixed at each end, then both ends of the cord are tied to the peg. This has the effect of closing the net behind the rabbit. The ferret is introduced into one of the holes and although a completely domesticated animal they have retained the instinct of their ancestor and will hunt through every nook and crannie within that warren, using their highly developed senses of hearing and scent to locate any rabbits present. Good eyesight is not required in this underground environment and albino ferrets are often used and even preferred by many who claim they are more easily spotted after emerging from underground and less likely to wander away. The rabbit, with the ferret behind it, will bolt out of the nearest exit hole and be caught in the purse net. They are then despatched quickly by the ferret owner. Unlike shot rabbits these ones are ideal for the pot and are delicious done in a casserole with carrots and shallots, much more tasty that those bland large Dutch rabbits that are now being sold in supermarkets and even in some butchers shops.

    Purse nets can be dispersed with and the rabbits despatched with a shotgun and this is sometimes the only way to clear some warrens that are overgrown with brambles and other dense undergrowth. These shot rabbits are not really suitable for eating as the lead shot often punctures the gut and bladder, contaminating the meat. They are ideal for feeding to the ferrets after they have been paunched, that is the stomach and gut removed. Some of the fur is also eaten with the meat, providing a good source of roughage and, like the ingestion of feathers when dead poultry or other birds are fed, is what the ferret's intestines are designed to cope with. The bones also keep their teeth in good condition and provide a valuable source of calcium. Despite my mention elsewhere of the new proprietory complete ferret dry foods, this natural diet cannot be improved on. Nowhere will this be more obvious than when cleaning out the dung corner. The ferret stools on this diet are non sticky, thin and black and contain some fur and feather. While not going as far as to say they are a pleasure to clean out, they are when compared to the soft sticky mess that is produced by artificial foods.

    Lurcher or other running type dogs are used by some to chase and catch the bolting rabbits but this practice looks likely to be outlawed in the UK under the proposed ban on hunting with dogs. A more recent development is the use of a bird of prey to chase and swoop on the bolting rabbits and looks like becoming even more popular, with large professional bodies now offering package type hunting weekends to interested parties.

    i went hunting once. i shot at a deer with a .22, but i hit it in the leg and crippled it. then i had to finish it off point blank to the head, execution style. venison is really good..especially the way us hawaiians do it--bbq with terriyaki sauce.

    niiiiiccceee...

    not the ResDogs version but the Terriaki part..
    How'd you hit it in the leg?
    front leg, like in the shoulder? or like knee-cap style?

    My dog brought home a deer leg once, all whole..from knee to hoof...
    then Nails and I got a little hammered and went looking for the "3 Legged Deer".....never did find that bastard..hmm....
