well on a cold night and after a visit from the 'professional' pest controler things picked up a little.
the owner did give the 'pro' a mouthfull asking him why when he is paying him i have managed to shoot 100 plus rats in the last fortnight. :)

So things aint picking up for you then?

When you said "Picked up....a little" I didn't realize you were talking about the baby on the top row :11:

Its a crying shame we are not allowed into the actual pens or climb up onto the roofs of the pig sheds :thumbdown:
Our recovery rate would skyrocket :boogie:

As most of mine are shot at the far end of the pens that we are not allowed to enter or along the (what I affectionately name the R1 Highway) guttering between the Fattening sheds and the Farrowing Shed, its very low :(

Going by the number of pellets left in my jacket (I always start with 40 for the PCP) after last night, I had 30 shots, I deffinately missed 6 of them :icon_redface:

Recovery was very poor :icon_redface:
Dillan; (after we sorted out a problem with his 100 began to bag up again), I don't know how may he shot, but he had a fair few judging by the multiple blood splatter marks around a couple of the open drains :thumbs:
The Farm manager is well chuffed with our efforts :boogie:
He's the one who goes round with the propper PPE collecting the bodies we leave in the pens.

I can't be assed to do a seperate thread, so heres the pix of the few recoveries for you. You will notice the smallest is a little 'flat' looking, that is the one that went under my right size 10

Group shot (poor 6 recovered)

Posted Image

Close up of the deflated one

Posted Image

Second Largest of the night
(biggest fell down a drain after being shot in the chest)
Posted Image

Close up so you can see the size against the measure
Just under 18.5 inch
Posted Image
The other two medium/largeish measured a tad over the 18 inch

Now can I have the 2nd SP back please as I hit the "+" by accident

i personaly find shot rats that aren't picked up promptly in pig pens don't need picking up next day as the pigs eat them.

I find these rat posts really cool.

I'm not very experienced when it comes to rat shooting, its been a quick and steep learning curve this Summer just gone for me.

Only normally done a bit here and there but not loads, but I'm with Tony here.

Out of the ones I shot Summer just gone and that was lots I only probably managed to collect maybe 50 to 70 percent of them due to different reasons.

Some may say that if I didn't collect the bodies then it doesn't count, well that's fair enough but I know that when I put 16 grains of lead in a rats KZ it's dead body collected or not.

Anyway just got to say rats are now my favourite air gun quarry, it's addictive shooting.

Half your a funny chap buddy :laugh: .

You make me smile :) .

We need hunters like you in the section to give us some moral :notworthy: .

I'd love to go out shooting with you buddy one day, from how you are I'm sure that I'd learn so much from you bud :thumbs: .

Maybe if you get the invite to the next meet we can shoot together pal, would be fun.

Who knows I might even surprise myself and teach you something new :o .
