The prolific rabbit is a listed pest species whose numbers are increasing to levels that have not been seen since pre-myxomatosis days. Rabbit numbers need to be reduced and long netting is both a high effective method of pest control and an exciting and enjoyable sport. This detailed book tells you everything you need to know about long netting including: the quarry and where to find it; the types of nets and equipment that are available; the different, and correct, ways of setting nets both during day and night; the use of dogs; how to use traps; how to craft long nets and purse nets by hand; and advantages of hand-made nets over manufactured nets.
