1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Sound's like you doing all the right things mate, maybe put the points across of the damage each animal will do e.g Rabbits making the holes in the paddocks is very dangerous for horses and cattle. Things like this may help fight you case!?

    I've seen a couple of fields that people sometimes keep horses in and there are a lot of rabbits, the holes they have made are shocking just not met the land owner yet to put that point across

    Try catching up with them in the local village pubs, worked for me, just popped in a couple of times a week for a quiet pint and started chatting to some of the old boys. It didn't take long for a permission after I dropped in I like hunting for wabbits. Country folk all know each other or know of someone who knows someone. Some of the guys in a local near me have been drinking there for yonks and know everyone and everything locally.

    Hi mate. Don't give up is the advice i can give! I've been shooting on and off for 3 years and had hardly any land for the last year. Within the last month i've gained probably a minimum of 300 acres.

    Chin up and carry on!

    As everyone has said keep your chin up and if possible get some cards printed up, it cost very little at vista print and give you something to leave them if they say no. They may change there mind one day!

    just dont give up,keep plugging away,it will happen,it just takes time thats all,everyone who knocks on the first door wants them to say yes,but its not that easy or simple.you will get plenty of knock backs,this might sound wrong,but getting a few knock back will help you be more determined for the next farm and so on,i only knocked on a few doors and got sick of knock backs,so i sent out letters instead and worked for me.good luck mate,keep at it

    Thats ok, but its like telling the farmer to suck eggs, and the farmer may take offence, although your right in what you say.
