Overview

During the last 20 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. Based on the author's experience ferreting both professionally and for sport, this guide contains all the vital information required to work ferrets at catching rabbits using tried and tested traditional methods. It outlines how to acquire, care for, and manage ferrets; examines how to effectively work a team of ferrets; discusses in detail netting, digging, and the role of the ferreter's dog; analyzes the behavior and characteristics of rabbits, their feeding habits, and how their warrens are constructed and laid out; considers essential equipment; and analyzes the latest electronic ferret finder sets.
