    Great double Sparrow - which is the worst predator - I would go for the ferret which is an indiscriminate killer - but both are ugly
    I have been operating 5 Doc250s around the Park for nearly four years and never tripped up a mustilid - just hogs and rats - but yesterday was payback for our efforts
    I always thought it was a good set - alongside a farm fence, bush on one side and nice grass on the other, plenty of rats, rabbits, Quail and Pheasants to eat - what more could a ferret want - well maybe some very manky “Chef” salmon and chicken cat tucker - or was she heading for the plastic eggs - when I am desperate - I will try anything - ironically I was ready to buy some chicken necks for a change
    Also got three rats and a couple of Mates got five rats each - 215 pests so far this year

    Love your guys work,i see that ritchie is trying those Victor traps. Victor with the white shroud are pretty good i reckon,they get that bar across the ears and lights out.

    Nice one Time out, not sure which does the most damage but the ferret wins on smell how they hunt anything is a mystery.

    I'm not getting any rats at work at all from a combination of cage traps, doc 200's and A24's( which don't seem to get anything) would like to think because they are not there but unlikely, any info on where is the cheapest place to get victors from would like to put a few on fence stays around the place, saw em in H&F for $15 at the weekend though that was a bit rich.

    Theres alot of useful stuff on this sight @Sparrow.

    www.traps.co.nz

    I have quite a few of their PCR copies of the doc200 and they are going well.

    Victors for $7.55 +gst. Also modified ones or even can just buy the white shroud and bait trigger and fit yourself.

    Hi Sparrow - this site is lowest cost I know - but looks like out of stock - https://www.deadrat.co.nz/shop-%26-o...olsFocus=false
    MS Woodcraft is pretty good - VICTOR TRAPS NZ
    Should be around $6 to $7
    Give them a good soaking in boiled linseed oil for a few days before you put them out - should protect the wood for a while
    Change the A24 lure over to possum paste with a bit of olive oil mixed in to help it dribble down the barrel

    Got this big Norway today - one of 5 - they donít come any bigger than this - must have weighed half a kilo - he had choices - a timms or a Doc250 a couple of metres away - apple and possum paste was more attractive than manky cat tucker

    Well I had a day off today and hadn't been round the trap line for a while so me and the young fella (school holidays) loaded up with fresh eggs and smoked fish skin from the freezer and were off.

    It turned out to be a bonanza

    First was a small cat that had managed to get its leg caught in a doc 200 while going for a rabbit leg
    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...990577d018.jpg

    Then a ferret in a fenn mk6. The first one we have ever caught.

    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...316ed56629.jpg

    There were 6 rats in total all varying stages of decay. One of them was bloody massive.

    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...cb91c692fa.jpg

    There was also another weasel, i have now caught 7 of them since starting trapping so there is obviously a breeding population of them present in the area




    And just when you think the A24s arnt working.....boom !!
    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...cca4a0e470.jpg


    Great results, the young fella loved it

    I now keep all the bones and skin off our smoked fish, it goes in bags in the freezer.

    It has proven a very successful bait for me on all manner of critters. I gave some to the trapping fella at the local golf course the other day. He caught 3 rats the first night using it so was very happy.

    I think sometimes its just the change of bait that works. However looking back at my records smoked fish has been the most successful.

    @time out

    Here's a picture for you.

    That garden technology of yours works equally well on these south island hogs.

    This is #5 in this trap since setting it up and I've never put any bait in it

    9 rats today.

    7 of which fell victim to the smoked fish skin.
    2 under GN traps.

    You know there must be a few about when your catching them like this !
