Putanges - The Movie!

Recommended Posts

Great video Nicepix, could quite place you by your strong French accent but I'll take a stab at North of Paris.

 

Really interesting and great point at the end about trapping them in their environment. Will definitely give them a go and report back.

 

Many thanks for making such a video and many thanks to Smithie for working through the frustration to get it uploaded, top work.

OK I will leave it for now.

 

But I have been known to delete things pictures,videos and accounts so anybody that wants it should save the video to the computer

Spare setter - guess the tool

 

Opens them a bit wider - perfect for the wider triggers

It's had me already mate..!!!

 

Can't say you've handled a trap unless you've had "Hands-in" experience :D :D :D

 

I was putting a non-triggered dufus in my bag so I thought "Best trigger it before I reach in catch my fingers". Set one side off and then flipped it round thinking "Safety first Hutch" instead of watching where my fingers were that were holding the trap and as i pinged the other side i quickly realised by the sharp streak of pain that shot through my index finger I was holding it with my index finger right between where the the two loops sit at the top so it got sandwiched. That was a lesson learned for life as I watched my fingernail turn black over the next few hours. learnt a few new choice phrases as well for that matter at the same time.

Ponte that looks like a mini grinder wheel tool ? more you use the Putanes more you learn the setting and catch rate goes up. I doubted them at first but success rate is much higher now.

I must of missed a trick is everyone using wider triggers for their putanges now? Ive found the one's i got with the sets are fine. I set them alittle closer to the prongs is all.

Are we going to see garden proud folk on Lorraine talking about how they had "big boned" moles but got them on a weight loss programme as they were making the place look slobbish?

 

"I had the whole place re-landscaped so they were always digging up hill and limited them to four worms a day for three weeks. The results were amazing and I am so proud of my new slender moles. Harrington loves it too as he no longer has to sweat and strain to get the large arbour triggers in the Putanges. I have had people comment on how it's not right to hear a man sweating and straining behind the begonias and Rose almost spilled her afternoon Earl Grey when under such a strain Harrington demanded the larger trigger 'good grief it's so tight but I can't get your legs open any further'. Well, that just wont do as I had to spend the next thirty minutes explaining what was happening and things got even worse when I explained it was because my Putange needed a smaller trigger. Caroline said she needed a bigger trigger as Harold struggled to find it in the first place. It all got too much frankly and so something had to be done."

Thats some imagination you got there. Was a straight forward question, nevermind.

Sorry chief. I don't know what everyone is doing with regards to wider triggers, I just read your post and thought "Why would you need wider triggers?" And came to the conclusion it must be due to fat moles and then it went from there. Didn't know you could buy wider triggers for them anyway.

i made some wider triggers as i found the traps didnt always sit tight to the walls of the tunnel and on these tunnels could be rattled from side to side. i compared the set trap to the width of the ring on a duffus trap (made that size for a reason) and seen a big difference and went from there...

 

some liked them some dont, but i prefer them and wont go back to the standard trigger.. a little more awkward to set as some tunnels need a quick rake out to get the trap in but i dont find it a problem, as much i as i really like the trap i prefer the duffus as they are faster/easier to check..
