    I have been using A24s for about eight years – with varying degrees of success – we have eleven in the Quarry just over three years old – I am just in the process of installing new gas bottles – put a test shot through a couple a week or so back to check the counter – one split in half and one cracked. Not great for a high quality device – but GN have been great and replaced the two broken ones. They broke while I was holding them loosely so I could look down the barrel and tweak the trigger with a twig. The third one did not split but I decided to hold the barrel tightly in my left hand to absorb some shock – dumb arse trick – hurt like hell as the shock waves went through all the joints in my hand. I think I know what Mr Rat feels like as it massages his head.
    Rats have become hard to find lately - but hogs still keep finding their way into my doc traps - 250s don't always kill the big ones.

    The ferrets seem to move on from my original cage site on the estuary – seven was good – then just the odd rat and a few hogs. So I brought the cage home. I got a call yesterday morning from a resident down the bottom of the street – they had seen a ferret running across their lawn. I took the cage down last evening and set it up with a nice fresh leg of rabbit – a lovely spot at the top of a walking track up from the water and outside the owner’s bedroom window. Nice big section of about two acres on the edge of the estuary – plenty of young rabbits running around – perfect place for ferrets.
    Phone rang this morning to say we had caught a ferret – took the .22 down and dispatched the cute little buggar – large nuts but no smell. Left a leg attached to the rabbit leg – so hope for another one tomorrow.
