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.

No worries mate, am often moving the sheds about and always see a few rats, next time I move one your welcome to come.

Let me know when you are planning on doing some more, you are an hour and half from me but if I'm free would be up for it.

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.
