  3. Well done on the Mink Eddie but i cannot make anything out of those pictures.
  4. Manson dead.

    He ordered it , They should of all got the Chair , it was awful .
  5. No one noticed. ?

    I always thought that the Fenn Fenn Jaws Struck too big an area on Rabbits , the Rounded Jaws would deliver more of a wollop and greater compression
  6. Rabbit trapping/snaring

    He can only fence it then , for every one that is caught another will replace it , the house holder will have to approach the land owners to see if they can be killed at source

    how much land is there and what is it like , Terrain ,Footpaths etc.
  8. When i put these pictures up yesterday i wondered if anyone would notice that the trap was placed the wrong way round , the reason i did this was back in the 60/70s i went out a few times with three old lads who done nothing except Rabbit Trapping and Long Netting, they lived in Norfolk and they had massive areas to work on , they used mainly IMBRA and FENN traps ,the jaws on the FENN were rounded i think they may have been an early model and the IMBRA was of a type that i had not seen before. The first place i ever went was called Wolferton not far from Sandringham and it was a Railway track , the traps had been set the day before and it seemed that every one had a catch and there were not many that had missed, the chap i was with lifted the trap and rabbit then gave it to me to remove and leg whilst he reset the hole ,i watched him like a hawk , he did it so quick but without hurrying i had seen my Grandpa set hundreds of traps but nothing like this though the sandy soil helped , when were nearly at the end there was a lole that went two ways and both tubes had a fired trap in he took both out and reset them then placed them back the other way round i asked why had he done that and he said a Stoat was at work and thats how to catch em . Ever since then if i have a fired trap and reset it i turn it around i have never caught a Stoat by doing this and nor would i want to it is just something i picked up along the way.
  9. TRAPS AGAIN

    I can usually drive to where i am going but i have fell out with the fellah who has taken the grass keeping on this place he cannot stop me but he keeps the gate locked so i have to carry them up in a ruck sack, the same ruck sack that one of his f***ing lambs is going into next April. Back up the hill this morning it was 7am really nice out and the red sky was a picture there were seven traps still out and nothing in six of them , the last one held a rabbit and that was that and i never saw one rabbit running about, there are a few Rabbits here but not many and i think i played it wrong i had put my traps in what looked very well used holes well spaced out in hindsight i might have been better setting them in one cluster, better still would be a lot more traps but it is very hard to carry more the eight at a time up this hill and if you do this once in a day it is enough, any way i enjoyed it here these last few days and you can't win em all.
  10. anybody work on the railways

    Get the first eight or nine inches in then wank the rest off , it sends a woman crazy.

  12. TRAPS AGAIN

    Yes it is the same trap and you are right it has not moved at all , it had a rabbit in it but the only sign of it being there is the scrap of fur at the top of the Jaws, ihave had Rabbits taken from traps before and it takes a big animal to move one and they do leave a mess, Rats will eat them in a trap but i have never seen a trap that clean, one other thing is the marker pin that i put above every trap was flat on the ground , i think one off the sheep may have knocked it over but who knows.
  13. TRAPS AGAIN

    Back up the hill and still no luck two traps fired and one of them had a Rabbit taken from it i have not got a clue to what may have had it as it is almost impossible to get one out without depressing the lever, one more go to-night then up they come , when i was leaving the farmer next door came over and told me that his two dogs had gone missing one is a fully trained sheep dog and the other is a Terrier and they went during the night.
  14. TRAPS AGAIN

    This type of Pan to Jaws system works brilliantly on Rabbits coming out or going in but you will get foul catches on Rats and very small Rabbits going in .
  15. TRAPS AGAIN

    Nothing doing this morning though one trap was fired , i think this could have been a Rat going in , i have had this before in this type of trap it will throw them off and catch them by the tail which they will bite off if they have time . The traps will stay down for a while as the holes are being worked and i have seen rabbits near bye. Ihave a mind to break the lock off of the gate so i can drive up i used to have a key but a new chap now has the Grass Keeping and he don't want me on there , Spiteful b*****d .
