  1. not good that, i am looking at retiring and doing moles a lot more, to be honest a jimny commercial would be best for me but no way i am paying 25k for one. have a octavia scout at present, great motor, pulls trailer and quad great but although it can be all wheel drive and is pretty good on grass it hasnt the height clearance for getting in and out of some fields with the trailer. will keep the octavia whatever and my mrs can sell her fiesta and use the octavia.
  2. what you reckon of Amaroc, seem expensive like
  3. i have been doing great trapping travel runs on the dyke kests with the fields being saturated, putange in that situation for me, been getting loads of doubles
  4. i do great with the pipe traps, make them in aluminium and plastic pipe.
  5. rabbit numbers been poor local to me for years, im out trapping moles and never hardly see a rabbit, bits we ferreted as kids in the 70's are barren and have been so for a few years.
  6. i knew a fella in the 80's put his border dog on a whippet, fella rated the pups highly. They got plenty of work. I never saw them myself.
  7. got some doing £5 a mole round my way. Be doing it on the fly though.
  8. did a few more flatpack trigger loops, this time i made some stainless rings and soldered them on, stops them going through the loops
  9. My flatpacks are about 4 yrs old, still like new being stainless, I have other cheaper duffus that are rusted to hell after the same time. Flatpack are well worth the extra money to me. Had a few going through the triggers, closed them up a bit and pushed them forward but not 100% successful, I then put the stainless washers on one to try, I thought the weight might spook the mole, but it works brilliantly, I believe the weight actually helps, you can get them set very kittle, and something important to me the moles are caught around the ribs so as humane as possible. I have about 150 flatpack
  10. I like flatpack, I tried a tweak on a one a few months ago, tacking a stainless steel washer on, what a difference to catch rate, I am doing all my flatpacks now, can’t fail with them. Since I can’t use a welder no more I silver solder them on now.
  11. All you need do is pick up a mesh when putting first clove hitch on then cut back surplus running line and melt end with a lighter
  12. Just tried that with a wide grommet, put on one clove hitch then other on top. I always secure my end pole running lines with a nail knot to lock it in, just do same with this, will go nowhere, wide grommet and 3mm running line. Excellent idea that tomo, everyday is a school day
  13. Yes thinking about that Tomo you could easily change one section of running line by just putting 2 grommets on each pole (top or bottom line). If you used a wide grommet you could probable get 2 glove hitch knots in the same grommet.
