Game fair highlights traditional countryside skills and techniques
The rabbit population in the UK has been estimated at 45 million and rising, causing upwards of £150 million worth of damage to the environment each year.
Simon Whitehead from Pakefield Ferrets specialises in traditional rabbit management and control such as trapping, netting, ferreting and lamping. These tried-and-tested methods run no risk of non-target or secondary poisoning to pets, livestock or wildlife.
It is these skills that Simon will be demonstrating at this year's Westcountry Game Fair. The event will take place at the Bath & West Showground this Saturday and Sunday. He will take an in-depth look at the equipment needed and how to use it to successfully go ferreting, plus look at the ferret itself and why many working ferreters are struggling to keep their lines going.
The Westcountry Game Fair is now in its 17th year and provides a platform for countryside traditions and issues to be promoted and supported. Excellent arena demonstrations include the art of wildfowling with Chris Green, falconry and a fantastic hunt parade (Sunday) with the Mendip Farmers Hunt, Wiltshire & Infantry Beagles and the Purbeck & Bovington Beagles, plus much more.
