    Hare courser caught and charged in Norfolk

    Just found this on a local newspaper site, glad Norfolk police caught them, if only they would catch the deer poachers

    Got a call from the farm manager where I shoot recently to keep eyes peeled after a couple of 'interesting' characters pulled into the yard and actually asked for permission to 'excercise' their dags, lol!! Not long after they were seen driving around the farm buildings so everthing towable has been moved or locked away for a while!

    "They are: Albert Ayres, 48, of Rudge Road, Standerwick, Somerset; Mark Loveridge, 33, of Milton Close, Slough, Berks; Samuel Beldom, 48, of Broadwater close, Wraysbury, Berks; Michael John Cole, 48 of Wigbeth, Horton, Dorset; Shane Chapman, 23 of Juniper Close, Wimborne, Dorset; Peter Barney, 27 of Juniper Close, Wimborne, Dorset and Denny Loveridge, 33, of Datchet, Slough, Berks"

    ​Hell of a long way to go for a hare.....

    Maybe their dags have a lot of stamina and that's where they caught up with em to see who had won?!

    The dogmen we used to deal with were as a rule local scroates but occasionally we would catch a few on their way home from Licolnshire/Cambridgeshire to Lancs.
    Somerset to Norfolk is,however, a hell of a trek!

    They have to go to where the right land is, not a lot of Fenland in Somerset..!
    Lincs/Cambs/Norfolk has the best and most suitable coursing land in the country hence the journey.
    No different to travelling the length of the country to Scotland and the Highlands for a stalk or France for a spot of fishing.

    Maybe more than you think though.

    Good hare numbers in some areas as well.

    Years ago when it was legal I attended hare coursing near Yeovil, lovely country and good days.

    I feel for some of these boys. While I never condone illegal activities, a legal fieldsport was wrongly taken away from them.
