Hi I'm close to gretna and always on the lookout for some more rabbit control, usually with ferrets or with a silenced rifle, have to keep expanding as I have got most of the farm well under control with the rabbits.

iv only ever seen since 2 wild rabbits on our farm in 6 years, and that was when a pet one got loose and they teamed up together til we got him again. we do have hares though but theyre no trouble to us.

we have a burn and river all round our boundary and quite alot of foxes so i think maybe they were hunted out or dont jump the river. apparently hares and rabbits dont share same ground, same for rats and mice - dont know if thats true tho  :bunny:
