Thread Hi Jacked again.

I watched the ferreting piece on the Gordon Ramsay programme and was very suprised to see that they were using bright yellow coloured purse nets. It flys in the face of everything that I've been taught or done but all the same, I'm sure that one of the rabbits actually ran into one of the techni coloured ones.

Is rabbit 'in season' the whole year round? Sometimes they're available to buy, sometimes not.

The answer is yes.
Traditionally, you only went rabbiting in the months with an 'R' in them because the rabbits tend to breed in the warmer months.

In reality, because of global warming, the rabbits are at 'it' for the full 12 months of the year.
Legally you can shoot rabbits all year round and infact, landowners by law, have a responsibility to control the rabbits on their land because they are a pest species. Not a lot of people know that.

Thanks, Bodger. I had wondered whether at certain times of the year the bucks have some sort of musk or something that spoiled the meat. So apparently not. Learned something.
