Rabbit management

I’m about to purchase a property that has a paddock with a bit of a rabbit problem. Lots of warrens and entry/exit holes. Any tips for local hunters/controllers to help me rid the problem? I’ll be doing a bit of groundwork to level the area so also be interested to hear any experiences of anything similar!

Will you be using this field for crops? As in the long run it might well be cheaper (and more humane) just to erect rabbit proof fencing. If you clear your field of rabbits there are bound to be more nearby that will slowly move in.
