    First job.

    I now have time on my hands so the long list of " things to do" is getting a look . Satrted with pulling in some traps for a clean up, they were getting a bit manky so hit them with the water blaster.

    These two rats must have been racing for the bait

    I knocked up a pig pen this arvo for a wild piglet I caught on Monday. Iron was kept off an old shed and the timber came off my mill so didn’t need to buy anything.

    Very few rats about, only catching the odd one every couple of weeks but ferrets have defiantly moved into the area.

    Used to use Ferrets to drive bunnys out of the warren back in the day. Now and then, a Ferret would go to ground.
    Best "bait" we found was rabbit liver

    Yip DOC 150s, plenty strong enough for mustelids and rats.

    Got a small feral cat the other day, it managed to push through the small gap in the mesh enough to get its head on the plate.
