Which methods of catching a rabbit for the pot assuming that you had the skills would you find acceptable and following on from that, which methods if any wouldn't you find acceptable ?

I would like to see someone show me legal snaring and a lurcher catch a few before making up my mind.

It can be arranged TD.
I have seen a Panda with a piece of wire stretched strategically across the front of it for bunny knobbling.

I know and when I get some spare time I'll sort something out. It was great to watch and help with ferreting thanks to Pricey and chums and I'd love to learn some more. Anything that keeps suffering down to a minimum is fine by me and it's good to learn what to do if you don't have your super-dooper rifle.

"Fancy" Smith

Keep this thread going! According to Hon. Sec of nearby allotment site I've got another 18 months to wait. N.B. this site has a serious bunny problem. What I have leant from you lot is that some of you see this "problem" as an opportunity! I would like to find out how you convert problem to opportunity without guns, lurchers or WMD.

Snaring would probably suit your situation best Oldish Chris but it is a very emotive subject and would probably cause an understandable uproar on site.

Lurcher for preference . I have no experience/knowledge of snares so would not comment on that until I knew more.

That said, they're a cunning lot round here, and I wouldn't have a problem with WMD, machine gun towers etc.

Think I'm turning into Wiley Coyote....
