The integral relationship between the pug (ferret) and the drummer (rabbit) is the epitome of the hunter-gatherer philosophy and lifestyle.
Shooting Times rabbiting expert Simon Whitehead of Pakefield Ferrets is again hosting this very popular attraction as well as offering the chance to win a fantastic handmade knife worth over £200 from Danum Blades.
Simon, who is a well-known author, professional rabbit controller, filmmaker and journalist will be running the Pugs & Drummers stand on Row L for the 13th consecutive year, showcasing these skills.
Whether you are a rabbiting enthusiast or a complete beginner, the stand to enter a free competition to win the knife.
Simon said, “It is a fantastic prize for anyone who loves the outside. Along with this prize, Simon will also be promoting his Ferreting Experience Days. Each experience is completely tailored to the needs of those on the day. It could be an introduction to ferreting, a full day’s ferreting or a catch and cook day where you harvest, butcher, cook and eat the results. My experience days are so much more than just learning about my world of ferreting but the ability to be able to personally tap into my knowledge, hear my tales and see first-hand the passion I hold for ferreting.”
While on this unique stand, you can also find out about allied areas such as night vision, long netting and photographs while a TV screen will explain the history of harvesting and cooking wild rabbit.
Simon’s ferreting demonstrations will be held twice a day (at 11am & 1pm in the arena next to the stand and he’ll be assisted over the three days by some of the UK’s finest net makers, including Ian ‘Torchie’ Clayton, demonstrating net making, offering visitors the chance to have-a-go themselves or simply sharing their encyclopaedic knowledge.
