Catching rabbits with nets and ferrets.

A lots of people ask me how rabbiting is done…. well this video is a great example of how we catch rabbits using the purse nets and ferrets. The nets are placed over all the holes, then the ferrets are released into the holes. The ferrets naturally know what to do… get the rabbits. But rabbits aren’t silly, they’re not going to stick around to be eaten! At full speed they “bolt” from the holes into the nets. The nets collapse around the rabbit catching them. I’m not sure if you picked it up from the video, but you can see I cover the hole with my foot, then knee. The reason I do this is to stop other rabbits from making their escape!
