In my last video, it would appear that I made a mess of net making, according to the “Flat Cap Hunting” community. So they kindly sent me a shaped purse net making kit. So in this tutorial, I follow the net making instructions that are included in the purse net making kit. The purse net kit comprises of two netting needles, a net gauge, a shed load of net making cord, a drawstring, and also a full set of written instructions and a DVD. So watch me as I follow their instructions and make a complete a shaped purse net.
From what I understand, the Purse Net is so called as it looks like an old style purse. The purse net is designed to fit over the hole of a rabbit underground burrow. When the rabbit tries to escape from its hole the rabbit runs into the net. The purse net has a draw string that tightens around the rabbit as it wriggles within the net. The drawstring is usually staked into the ground next to the rabbit hole. OK, that is how I believe it works, but I am sure that someone will put me right.
