Ferrets have proven to be great hunting companions over the years. Not only are they preferred because of their stamina but they are also blessed with astute instincts and speed that is needed for hunting. Ferreting or ferret hunting has been around for centuries and hunters all over the world have been using ferrets to rid the surrounding habitat of rodents and rabbits.

They are the perfect choice when it comes to tracking down rabbits and rodents as these creatures mainly hide in small burrows and holes in the ground which makes it difficult for dogs to follow them in there. However ferrets are tiny and can easily chase rabbits and rodents out of the holes and lead them into a trap.

Most hunters prefer to hunt with female ferrets as opposed to male ferrets. Male ferrets are infamous for devouring the prey after they have chased them into the hole. They are also known to fall asleep after their delectable meal. The process of digging out the ferret from the hole to recover the prey and the ferret can be pretty tedious and hence hunters prefer using the skills and discipline of female ferrets for hunting.

When one goes hunting with a ferret one must understand that they are used for hunting rodents and rabbits because of their speed and one has to ensure that it is well fed before a day of hunting. If the ferret is famished, it will not be able to do its task and may end up getting eaten as well.

Ferrets maybe blessed with natural hunting instincts however it is ideal that a ferret is well trained in hunting rabbits and rodents to avoid the ‘lay up’ which is when the ferret falls a asleep after hunting its prey. Often to avoid the situation, hunters block all the exits in the ground and keep open just one, which the ferret can use to drive out its prey. Make sure you have necessary traps like the purse net hooked up to the open exit for the prey to get caught in.

Ferrets are amazing creatures and are widely known for their raw ferret hunting instincts. You too can use your ferret to track down annoying rodents and rabbits. All you have to do is ensure your ferret enjoys good stamina and speed by feeding it well and training it to polish its hunting skills.
