Book Description

22 Oct 2008
During the last twenty years there has been a dramatic increase in the rabbit population and this development has, in turn, been accompanied by a renaissance in ferreting. The appearance of an up-to-date, informative and instructional guide to this traditional form of rabbit control is therefore timely, and will be welcomed by those with an interest in country pursuits.

Great book especially if you are new to ferreting. It contains just about everything you would need to know to get started including how to use Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 ferret finders, equipment needed and information about keeping and entering ferrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on the subject. 14 Dec 2012
By Rico
Brilliant covers working with dogs longnets and purse nets. Has a section explaining how to use the MK3 locater which was the big selling point for me.
If youre new to ferreting get this book. If like me you have been ferreting for a while you wont learn a huge ammount from this book buts its still an enjoyable read and was worth the price just for the pointers on the mk3 which I was struggling with.
