Good numbers........

..........of rats showing up on our two main farm shoots.

I've missed a good few sessions due to illness but I managed to get out two weeks back. We ended up nailing around a hundred of the horrible little bleeders between the two of us all in one spot!

Fifty nine retrieved for the photo shoot............

Rat pie? I suppose I would if I was proper Hank marvin. :lol:

It was a great couple of hours Raj, weve had around 200+ in the past month or so. There is a stream that runs West to East on the North side of the farm, we sit with our backs to the cattle sheds which is where Roland heads for on exiting the stream. We simply bait the ground in various areas between us and the strea. That stops em long enough to get an easy shot using N/V at distances between ten and twenty five yards.

Its great sport, i love it! :)
