    Liking the ruru pic. Didn't think they would do carrion.

    Welcome to the forum kukuwai - I love your pictures - so much to learn from game cameras - I am just guessing without one - hope you can post more of your activities
    The Ruru is very special - but sadly they eat poisoned rats and mice - I think I have wiped them out on my place
    I went up the Park last evening and pulled out a tree hanger and some rats - the Doc250 makes a mess of them and seven days later they are on the move again - yuk
    I must be desperate for the Swamp Comp entry @Dundee - I sent Cruz down the bank to find the lost stoat - no problem - be brought it back - tail and all - also got a hog, a couple of rats and a few mice

    Cheers for the welcome time out, however truth be told I should be thanking you for much more than that. I have learnt a whole lot from your writings in this and the other H&F forum re trapping, so cheers.

    Regarding the ruru photo, I actually got 7 pictures of him over a 2 hour period that day some just of his back while he tried to get the rat free from the trap -amazing really. I checked the trap line the same day the pictures were taken and that rat was very fresh, I would think it was caught that night!!

    On the subject of game cameras - if you or anyone else is interested keep an eye on the cabelas USA website, they come on sale often. Wait for one that has good reviews and even with the postage (aprox 1 week) they work out considerably cheaper than in nz.

    With respect to my project : My partner and I own a property with a 7 ha wetland on it and this year we set up a line with 40 traps - fenns, victors, snap e, PCR 200s and a couple of cages which are not always set. We just cracked 50 kills so happy with that. Mostly rats, a couple of possums, 3 hedgepigs, 4 cats and 1 weasel. Still waiting for the first stoat.

    I do have a question for you if you don't mind...I noticed a spot of blue Connovation paste on the fence stay below the snap e with the stoat in it (gota love the scratches on the stay) was that the bait that got the stoat?? I have been using it recently on my victors seems to be quite effective on the rats.

    Cheers and good luck out there!

    Went for a walk in the rain around the wetland today, 4 rats and 4 mice. That added up to 12 rats, 9 mice and 1 possum for the week. Seems like the smoked fish wing bones were good bait in the boxes at this rate 100 kills fast approaching. here's a couple of the highlights
