Ratting, Bedford

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in a small bit of ratting on the Bedford outskirts ? Moved a chicken shed today and approx 30 rats came out, I only managed one with my size 10's.

 

I have another shed to move tomorrow that was almost next to it and expect the same if not a few more as this shed has holes all around it and a few bales and feeder inside.

 

The fun won't last very long am sure, but if anyone local wants a crack at it then let me know Asap.

I have one more to move in the next few days, not sure what will be under this one, I would guess to see a few but probably not hundreds !

Cant believe no-ones took you up on that , maybe try putting it in another section , (the earth dogs and working terriers), sounds like it could be great fun...

If i still had an air rifle i'd be over tomorrow as your not far away, think a shotty might be overkill for some rats...

I think you would struggle with an air rifle mate, I have plenty of those, and mates with them, just doubt you would do much good, a shotty on the other hand would be just fine and dandy as plenty of open area around the sheds, I was thinking I needed a multishot 410 for the job.

      I may have a little opportunity for someone on my pheasant shoot in North Yorkshire, around the farm is a few rabbit sets and they are eating everything in the garden, I’ve been shooting a few but not really getting on top of them, I was thinking of taking someone to have a go ferreting it for me, I would want whoever came to be experienced and know what they are doing, I can’t say you will come away with a bag full but there is a few about and nobody else gets to go on this land, you would need your own gear as this is something I don’t do and I wouldn’t take more than two people with me, it would be in a couple of weeks and maybe on an evening. As I’m taking someone up to have a go shooting next week, if anyone is interested please get in touch and tell me a bit about yourself, please don’t be offended if you don’t get an invite, I would want to meet you before we had an outing 
      all the best
