    Nice paint job FL - good to whack them where they die quick - I have had a few lately in Kness Snap-E traps that confirm it would not pass the NAWAC requirements - I understand that under NAWAC a strike in front of the eyes although it may kill the rat, is not fast enough - a strike behind the eyes or on behind the head or mid thorax is pretty rapid death and is generally NAWAC compliant - but I have seen a few lately caught by the tail, a foot or today one across the back - he was very much alive - for a while - Cruz got to the trap site first and was barking his head off at this poor rat

    Not a lot to report - just a few rats - but a few young ones starting to come out now - couple of pics below of today's 4 rats - and a big Norway rat shit on a log above a trap site - I guess that is telling me something - the bottom rat picture is in a Gorilla trap - it just would not set again - they are all failing - bastard traps - we have got the Park spreadsheet up to 474 predators - 43 possums, 417 rats, 13 hogs and 1 stoat - I had a goal of 500 by Xmas - should get there
    The Goodnature A24s are still a challenge - the best of the eleven in service over six months has 8 strikes - the worst has 1 strike - but rat numbers are low

    Hard to hold your breakfast down sometimes - the possums are a bag of maggots within a couple of days
    i got my five tails into H&F a few days back - staff on the counter had never heard of it - they had trouble with their breakfast when I put my milking gloves on and opened up a yogurt container with three stinky ferret tails, plus a stoat and weasel tail - I counted them on a sheet of their advertising material
    I hope @Dundee has remembered his tails

    Haha I dropped 3 tails off a couple of days ago too and got a similar reaction.... a very blank look from the frontline staff.
    Had to get the boss who was a good bugger and very interested in the trapping, he gave me an entry form to fill out and showed me the prize list which I must say was very impressive.
    Not the main motivation for any of us I'm sure but a good added bonus if you manage to win something.
    Trappings been pretty quite for me lately apart from a few rats, mice and a couple of hoggs but ill take them all

    Good luck fellas in the comp and with the trapping !!

    So the one above was a Tom, got a female on Friday with a Timms around the pond wasn't really in milk but looked like she'd been suckling not long ago, thought here we go....... The kittens were kind enough to pull themselves out in the sun today, cleaned them up with the rough but effective vineyard single shot .22 . Not the nicest but nipped 4 for future problems in the bud! Still rebated my 4 live captures 1 Timms and 2 docs and will keep pulling hogs I expect!

    Four hours and 9000 steps - checked about forty rat traps and 15 possum traps this morning - never saw a single rat - but one less tree climbing nest wrecker on my favorite log - bird predators are getting harder to find

    The door was closed and the smell was awful - very dark in there with the polythene - so I lifted the door a bit to look underneath - he flew at me and hit the door - I got a real fright - I have never seen a cat or a ferret snarl and bark like this bastard - he would leap from one end of the cage to the other to get me - glad the wire was there!
    Out to dinner tonight with a Mate who had one for a pet - I sent him a text and picture and asked if he wanted it - yes please - but I had to turn him down - told him it needed a pacifier and too much stink - very nasty critter
