Within the terms of the Hunting Act I hunt deer, foxes, hares, badgers, otters, mink,squirrels, voles, moles, shrews, polecats, ferrel cats, wild cats, big cats, dormice and mice.

Apologies if I've left any one out.

I've considered going for chimera and various other mythical beasts, but that would just be silly.


The only animals I refuse to hunt are rats and rabbits. I only ever kill them by accident.

I think a good days rat hunting is hard to beat, bl**dy good fun and so BASIC! What else do you get to whack with a shovel when the terrier misses??

I have to say I have moral objections to rat hunting. Not on the basis of cruelty or anything, just because it's so damned LEGAL. I can tear rats to pices with dogs, yet I can't even look for deer with them, even if my intentions are nothing more than that. Sorry but I don;t agree with that particular law so I break it all the time. Please let me off. After all the law is ridiculous.

We shouldn't have to obey laws thatr make no sense.

There has to be a limit.

3000 new crimes under New Labour. 2999 and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But not the Hunting Act 2004.

I have never taken my dogs out without breaking that particular law and I never will until the Hunting Act is rrepealed.

In fact, it's a beautiful evening so I am off to hunt Stags in the woods with four dogs.

Wish me luck everyone!
