    SHOOTING PERMISSION

    I couldn't believe my ears , no matter my luck . I've had several evenings roost shooting there now , Happy days, ( well evenings ).
  4. Tried and trusted mk4 Fenn on rats in a wire cubby , proves itself time and time again.I put 2 inside a small stable yesterday afternoon, i had a text this morning from the lady to say there was a rat in one. Sure enough one very dead rat , never get bored off finding that. Plus one very happy customer.
  5. Too true , i have used Phostoxin for moles but it's not very effective . I now only use it against rabbits if i have no other option, saying that i haven't used any for 2 years . I hate the stuff.

    SHOOTING PERMISSION

    Welcome mate, but you'r one of hundreds who's come on here seeking permission. I don't blame you i must say , i moved last year after 50 years in Norfolk to scotland. I have asked at every farm/ croft i drove past , just before christmas i was asking about beating at a farm and the reply came ," i'd rather have someone shoot my pigeons ". It pays to ask , ask and ask.
  7. Haven't used a gibbet line for years , it used to be the way to prove you where doing your job. If they don't believe me , and they should by looking over the ground, it's the last time i work for them.

    Ticks

    I use needle nose pliers to get em out , wish there was something that kept em away.
  9. Nice one Trappa , i thought i was doing well today , 5 moles for the first 12 traps , ( there was more ! ).
  10. Mine are in and still working for me , i'll find most and loose some , oh well .
  11. I know it's hard not to stress about it , but i've seen it all before and it will go . I know from experience its better to stay off the roads for a wee while . I'm not venturing out to any of the crofts until monday, but my landy and me are still intact.
  12. They'll wait , just stay safe , i once couldn't check the traps for 10 days.

    Moles and roads

    Poor old farmers, they fail to realise we have bills to pay as well.

    Moles and roads

    There's always a farmer wants it done for nothing. I set some traps on two fields on monday , went to tell the farmer how many traps/ when i'd be back etc. He said i've got another 9 acre field that's covered in mole hills , will you throw that one in for nothing? I said no , i agreed a price for two fields . His answer was , well don't bother at all then. Collected my traps and blocked his phone numbers, pratt cost me nearly 3 hours!

    Sub zero ferrets

    Really stuffed their nest box with hay , they've made a hole/ nest in it . I try not to disturb them too much either.
