Thread: Foxes where do I stand

    Foxes where do I stand

    Hi gents I have permission in some ground and it's unsuitable for rifle but there's a few earths there I'm toying with the idea of getting another terrier where do I stand if I have written permission for Vermin control of foxes using terriers to protect game birds even though I'm not officially the keeper?

    You wouldn't need to be the gamekeeper as such as long as you have permission but I think you might be better off either
    a) shooting fox with a shotgun or
    b)getting in someone who already has a decent terrier, you can't dig foxes to terriers anymore you can only dig the dog out if he's stuck. you can only use 1 dog at a time and foxes must be flushed to waiting guns anyway so you might as well just shoot the fox with a shotgun as in (a)

    My mate is a pro terrierman he said if he left the hunt there would be at least a que 100 deep outside the kennels in the morning after his job so there must be plenty of guys out there who would assist .

    TanksThanks for the replies gents ive done a fair bit of terrier work before and I've fancied getting another terrier for a while now as I miss not having one , getting him sine work would just be a bonus , that's fine I can have somebody ready with a shotgun for the fox to bolt I just wondered about the legalities if using the dog to bolt foxes, seems odd you're not allowed to use nets anymore though,

    We still make and sell lots of fox nets. As far as I'm aware the legality s come with the dispatch of the fox? Although I may be wrong

    That's what I was thinking, I was thinking of using the nets then dispatching with a .22? But if it's not legal I'll just as easily use the shotgun

    If you want any nets give me a shout mate, a lot of people I speak to use a .410 pistol or a shotgun

    It's still ok to use nets over the entrances to the earth, but nothing other than nets. Fox must be shot immediately.

    Ah I see thanks , yeah they would be dispatched with the .22 immediately so no problems there
