Thread: Ratting in Dorset - any interest?

  1. #1

    Ratting in Dorset - any interest?

    Is ratting with terriers a popular sport? Are there many folk out there looking for an opportunity?

    I have an increasing rat population on a Dairy Farm that needs thinning out. It has to be a smoke and terriers job as shooting would not make a big enough dent.

    This is not my area of expertise so open to any suggestions but not for shooting.

    Ratting with terriers is probably some of the best fun you can have with your clothes on! I'd be surprised if you couldn't find someone to help out, one of the beaters on a local shoot? If not then probably start an offensive of trapping and poisoning.

    Unfortunately I'm miles away otherwise I would like to help. Always a good day out and the dogs love doing something they were bred for.

    I have a smoker and a terrier, may be able to get a few others if you get stuck. Or contact the ytene mink hounds they have a gang of lads who love ratting.

    These guys were stalking with me a week or so back - Malc knows them well they would maybe up for a trip. Pretty sure we can combine with a bit more Fallow & Sika culling.
