    Default Hunting

    IS there anywhere up here you can go hunting? By hunting i mean anything from a walkabout in the countryside shooting rabbits and birds to camoing up and waiting. Anything remotely close to hunting give me some numbers, websites, name.

    Always had a keen intererst so would like to give it a shot, see how i like it.

    Also need to know all details such as age etc if you give me names etc.

    Default Hunting

    I may be able to help you there...

    Currently got a bad vermin problem, i lost all of my chickens a couple of weeks ago to either a fox, mink or poll cat. Some were taken completely others were dead on scene but with heads ripped off.

    Would actually appreciate if you came up to my bit, baited the area then got rid of my chicken eating pests!! The chicken coop (which is a now empty) would make a rather good hide out...

    I really want to get chooks again but obviously cant until this problem is sorted.

    Fore info this happened in daylight hours, the chooks were let out at 9am I went to Inverness for the day and came back at about quarter to four in the afternoon where i found a feild full of feathers.

    PM me if you are interested. Like i say you would be doing me a great favour...

    Wrong, you will comment on this thread, and sooner or later your going to blow.
    I'd like to hear your view, cant say I've met anyone who feels strongly about animal rights before. Most people agree to animal cruelty as a way to assert human dominance.

    If we leave it any longer animals will evolve the ability to carry and use guns, that is why we should all wipe out animals for the good of us all. And who can knock a great tasting high protein bunny burger?

    Your post is further proof of the mentality and stupidity of "hunting" folk.
    On the one hand you state that "hunting with dogs is band (sic)", and then in the next sentence you state you can hunt with "only 2 dogs"

    It is exactly because of your type of thinking why Tony Blair blew it with his so called "hunting" ban.
    All forms of killing animals for sport should have been abolished, period.

    Also is there any particular reason why you "exercise" your dogs whilst you are on horseback? and heaven forbid you carry a firearm whilst out on your horse.
    Do you and your friends re-enact cowboys and indian games?

    What about those who hunt and fish and only kill what they intend to eat themselves or pass on to others to eat?

    Took your advice and googled "veil (sic) of clettwr" and could not find anything, I then looked up "Burkha of Clettwr" & "Hijab of Clettwr" thinking you had made a mistake, but again no joy.

    In exasperation, I then googled "Vale of Clettwr", and found the hunt that you referred to. Seems that this hunt has a history of both badger baiting and violence against people. which supports the argument that people who like hurting animals, also like hurting their fellow man.
    In case you have "forgotten" about the heroic exploits of your former "hunt" I enclose details for you

    Vale Of Clettwr Foxhounds"..Vale Of Clettwr Foxhounds Hunt master David Lyn Lloyd (47) of Blaenpant Farm, Pencader and terriermen John Geraint Owen Thomas (48) of Gwarbistgwynwydd, Maesycrugiau, and Gethin Jones (46) of Gardde, Cwmdwyfran and foot follower John Gareth Jones (64) of Golygfa, Heol Gilfachwen, Llandysul had encroached without permission on to forestry land. Gethin Jones who said he had 30 years' experience as a terrierman, dismissed a prosecution suggestion that he had disturbed an active badger's sett and said he had walked around the area and had not seen any signs of setts. John Geraint Thomas said, "I have been a terrierman for over 30 years and there is no doubt in my mind that this was not a badger's sett. I know there are active setts in the area but we couldn't see these from where we were."

    In addition there is also the following:

    Three supporters of the Vale Of Clettwr Foxhounds bound over to the keep the peace for a year after an incident when a sab van was surrounded and the driver dragged out and held upside down. Terrierman Emyr Davies and supporters John Galmore Jones and John Geraint Owens denied violent disorder and the theft of 6 items of sab equipment.."

    Finally, could you indicate in the Hunting Act 2004 the relevant section which states that "you must carry a gun with you at all times.."

    I trust that this will be forthcoming because you do state in your very lucid post that you know this Act "im only saying this because i know more bout hunting than you probably do"

    Default The kill

    I would only kill animals, Birds etc for food not for so called sport or some sick enjoyment, too many folk in Caithness just blast creatures away for the sake of it. I'm a survialist I respect all creatures they provide me with food.

    Default rabbit shooting

    A farmer told me 7 rabbits eat as much as one sheep - if you go and knock on a few doors you should be able to shoot rabbits quite easily. Anything else usually has a price tag attched.

    I know that there is a huge problem with stray cats in the atomic site so you could perhaps send some of these pests to kitty heaven and save a few hundred birds in the process. I think cats without bells are classed as wild animals and you should be okay.
