    Late sixties, we all nested, had catapults, built dens, ratted along the river, dug out wasp or bee nests for grubs to go fishing, out from first light ‘til dark. I could go on, there was never a better time to be a kid
  2. Do any of you lads think this mole is anything to worry about?
  3. Another five last night to the rimmy, with the Pard 07sp lrf on top. Great bit of kit. Definitely made some inroad into the rat numbers
  4. I noticed a few rats with the thermal, running round the chicken pen last Tuesday night as I waited for a fox to show. Anyway, popped on last night for an hour with the rimmy and managed 16. Picked ten this morning with six disappearing over night to either an owl, farm cats or other rats.
  5. Lofting poles with a bit of DIY added. Also had a hook welded on the end to drag the dreys out
  6. Not been but it’s a place I’ll visit when I retire. I’ve a mate who farms on there and I keep getting invites. You must visit the Highland Park distillery
  7. Yep, went last august and took English dosh to change once over there. Better rate
  8. Had a couple of hours drey poking to shift some tree rats and give newly planted trees and the birds a chance this spring. Ended with sixteen, finding two that must have dropped after we finished
  9. I have one. It has a screen in the back for viewing any footage. A lad I know has one that pings a text when it’s tripped. He’s turned up many times after getting a text to shoot a fox
  10. Bought a gen 1 recently. Setting up was a doddle, LRF is spot on and good distance was obtained with the on board IR, even on its lowest setting. Zeroing was simple, one shot, and an hour later I shot a fox with it on top of my 243

    Close up it is. I think the artist used a fine single bristle on most of it

    I’ve an original watercolour of a cock fight somewhere by C R Stock after Alken. Close up the artwork is amazing
  14. I had a rat in a fenn the other week and minutes after resetting it, I had a weasel in it. I actually heard it go off
  15. If it’s the Arse-pb then no and I’m a big bird watching fella. I’m a member of BTO and prefer their way of doing things.
  16. I’m 65 and still working. Could have taken my pension but I enjoy my job. I’ve been asked when I’m due to retire in a years time to stay on. When I think about it, I’ll have worked 50 years. That’s long enough isn’t it? There’s a guy working with me who’s 70. I can still get about on a fell after hounds
