    They keep on coming - only little and similar to mother cat I got recently - so there will be more - always another hog looking for a Pheasant or Quail nest
    Starting to see some juvenile Pheasants - leggy birds that look a bit untidy

    Trying to get back into my community work at the Quarry Park - nice quiet walk through the pines this morning to check ten sentinels and about fifteen snap traps
    Three rats and one possum after a week

    I told him it was already dead


    They seem to like the blue stuff - momentarily

    Good work @time out. Just saw a stoat in the garden run as fast as i could got the 20 gauge but he buggered off. Do stoats live in trees or on the ground?

    I have never had much luck on mustilids FatLabrador despite operating a DOC250 continuously for a couple of years at the farm and five of them continuously for a couple of years at the Park - just not many around this area
    I am not a religious person - but my trapping bible is always close by - check out from Page 9
    http://www.landcare.org.nz/files/file/1110/pest
    Best bait will be fresh rabbit and maybe some eggs in your DOC200 - if you get one - keep setting it to clean out the family - my Mate got five recently - maybe get them used to the box before you set it

    Swamp Comp Prize
    @Dundee - great you can now see in the dark with your lantern - I got a Roman one man bivy tent from the Swamp Comp - but I donít plan on sleeping out by myself so it may not be useful to me
    I really appreciate Hunting & Fishing running the Swamp Comp each year - it encourages hunters to get out and kill bird predators - which is one of my interests
    The tent has turned up and I am going to send it down to @Sean - I hope he can use it - he deserves something for all the work he does on predator control
    I wish I had one for @FatLabrador - maybe next year young fella - you are doing a great job
    I have got my first tail in the freezer for this year - a ferret - hope to get a few more
    I am still getting a few rats around the traps - checked a line of 10 possum and 15 rat traps on Friday between downpours - just a couple of rats - bastards must stay under a log on wet nights - this silly buggar looked like your drowned rat @Dundee - but he has steel around his neck

    Good to see you only check those traps once the tide goes out

    Fuck, can't hold my tongue The doc (spithere) traps are a ripoff, and a bad one at that. If you like made in china crap that doesn't do the job go buy them, cause doc are fuckers that should never be trusted. EVER!!! And those traps are fucking shit, and that was from their own trapper.
    If you want to poison, best you don't leave the poison in those traps for weeks, never mind months. Read the doc bullshit, and that is all it is, you will FAIL.

    Dicks kill ferrets, ferrets live on rabbits.... If you want me to spell it out I will, but I shouldn't have to. By all means get into it, but don't believe everything you read.

    Round the Park this morning and got a couple of tree hangers and a rat - three hours work - pleased with the possums but the Snap-E traps are being tripped without the culprit being snapped





    Off up the farm this afternoon - quad is at home waiting for a service so had to check thirty traps on foot - three hours work for two rats - my wife serviced them all on Sunday while I was away hunting - she got five rats - will soon be a qualified trapper and I can leave her to it, and go hunting
