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.

I have one more to move in the next few days, not sure what will be under this one, I would guess to see a few but probably not hundreds !

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.

      I have achallenging permission in North Essex near Sudbury . The owner wants rabbits cleared off it and I don't have the time to have a serious crack at it due to other commitments. I've tried live catch cage traps to no avail. Are there any snare/trap men or serious shootists that want a go? The owner will pay for good results.
