Ratting, Bedford

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in a small bit of ratting on the Bedford outskirts ? Moved a chicken shed today and approx 30 rats came out, I only managed one with my size 10's.

 

I have another shed to move tomorrow that was almost next to it and expect the same if not a few more as this shed has holes all around it and a few bales and feeder inside.

 

The fun won't last very long am sure, but if anyone local wants a crack at it then let me know Asap.

Cant believe no-ones took you up on that , maybe try putting it in another section , (the earth dogs and working terriers), sounds like it could be great fun...

If i still had an air rifle i'd be over tomorrow as your not far away, think a shotty might be overkill for some rats...

I think you would struggle with an air rifle mate, I have plenty of those, and mates with them, just doubt you would do much good, a shotty on the other hand would be just fine and dandy as plenty of open area around the sheds, I was thinking I needed a multishot 410 for the job.

      Heveningham Hall, Suffolk 
       
      The Heveningham Hall Shoot is run over the three Estates of Heveningham Hall, Sibton Park and Cockfield Hall.
       
      Under the direction of the 3rd Lord Huntingfield, Heveningham was one of the first Partridge shoots, recording some of the astonishing bags of the 19th Century. Frequent guests included the best shots of the day including Lord Walsingham, Lord de Grey and the Maharajah Duleep Singh, who along with Lord Huntingfield still hold some of the record bags for both driven and walked up game. 
       
      Set in Capability Brown parkland and surrounded by over 5500 acres of rolling Suffolk countryside. Heveningham Hall is in the ideal location for an outstanding shoot providing exceptional sport, with driven game capable of testing the most accomplished gun. 
       
      The day starts in the Courtyard at Heveningham Hall with coffee and bacon rolls, prior to leaving at 9 am for our first drive, on our gun bus, which will transport you throughout the day. After the first two drives we hold a mid morning break at the Temple or The Bridge with hot sausages, sausage rolls and minced pies washed down with coffee and slow gin. A two course lunch is held after a further two drives in the Tea Room after which we return to the field for a further two drives. At the end of the day we have tea and cake back at the Tea Room where you will meet The Game Keeper and receive a brace of oven ready birds.

      You can Shoot up to 10 Guns in the field. 
       
      Transportation and full hospitality provided. 
       
      We can make arrangements for Guns, Cartridges and Loaders if needs be.
       
      Heveningham offers days from 250 to 400 birds priced at £35.00 + VAT per bird.

      Back to back days available.
       
      Furthermore we can also offer our Guns overnight accommodation at Wilderness a unique collection of manors, farmhouses and country cottages surrounding Sibton Park.

      Full teams only.

      Please get in touch for availability,
