This practical and informative book cover all aspects of ferreting and the techniques that are used. The author explains why people use ferrets to hunt rabbits and, in order to help the ferreter understand his quarry, he also discusses rabbit behaviour. In addition, he considers how to get started in the sport and provides advice on the choice and acquisition of a working ferret and the selection of the most useful pieces of equipment.
