Ratting In Midlands For My Russell Bitch...

Recommended Posts

I've just got this Russell bitch and would like to see what she's like on the rats. She is fiery and wants to kill anything small and furry, cats, ferrets, rabbits, birds etc.

I don't know much about ratting at all, I've just been into running dogs so far and have got this bitch to bush to the lurchers.

 

I can travel.

 

Cheers

have you been out knocking doors ?.................... theres plenty about this time of year and if people start to see them they want them gone. A few ask me to pop around to clear them for them. did one a week before last for two old boys I move an old pallet didn't know what was funnyer me doing a my best dace jig to stamp on them or an 80 year old man hanging on to a barn door for dear life with a nest running every where. my bitch didn't know which one to kill :laugh: .

 

i enjoy a bit of ratting this time of year it gives everything else a chance to thieve and keeps me busy untill the fishing season

I've asked at a few farms and been told they don't have any rats! Lol.

 

To be perfectly honest I could do with someone showing me the ropes anyway as I wouldn't know where to start really.

Did you move some of the bait stations around to where the rats are/were in the garage? They should be working now as its been nearly 2weeks.

 

That hound with his nose will tell you where they are :thumbs:

Yes mate, moved some into the garage. And they are def working, the rats have been emptying them and i've been finding very sleepy looking rats about the place and killed a few. The hound has dug a few nests out and marked a few adults that we've killed! She found them in the quad.

unusual to find rats that have eaten poison, once they start to feel the effects they usually find somewhere dark and quiet to go and die,

Well the one died very 'un-quietly'. . . . my old man spotted it lying in the chicken run, looking stoned. And belted the shit out of it with a bit of 2x4.

 

Couple of others have been spotted wobbling across the garden and been seen to.

      Hi,
      Looking for any farms around the avebury, calne, lockeridge and devizes areas. Who would give me permission to go hunting rabbits on their land with my .22 air rifle.
      Happy to give a share of the rabbits. And/or help with any rats in barns that could do with dealing with.
       
      Thanks
      Ryan

      Any one in the Wigan area willing to give me a day out with some terriers. Completely new to it but have been interested for a while and would like to get into it.
