    My one is pack and save royal oak. You'd think with so many Indians running around they'd have some.

    @Marty Henry the fencing on that property is some of the best youíll see. Tight as. You canít see it well in the photo, but thereís a very hot wire running around the level of the third wire, roughtly knee and upper front leg height on a goat. Strongest zap the Gallagher systems can deliver (its a 100j system). If the goats try to push through they get an almighty whack. They only do it a couple of times then decide to kick back in the paddock and await their fate.

    I often hear cockies say electric doesnít work with goats, but a staunch one with no leakages anywhere on the circuit, combined with tight fencing, certainly does.

    This is exactly what Iíve been doing these past couple of days, except I wasnít allowed to take photos unfortunately (long story)...

    iíve never owned an AR15 but after a couple of goat sessions with a Windham / Timney trigger / Leupold D-EVO / Tassie Research 30s... I bloody well want one!

    every now and again i do a quick check with my rifle before i start walking . . . its 2 shots at 200, 2 at 300, no dialing for elevation, i let the bullets drift with the wind to see if my estimate and Streloks are close, i measure the drops . . . then 1 shot dailing elevation and windage hopefully landing in a 2 inch square . . the only problem i have is because i shoot close to the trees i have no idea usually what the wind is doing on the way to the target, but not today, bless his heart the farmer had a cracker smokey fire going which was a great help in seeing the wind not just feeling it . . . life is good.

    Managed to get this hare on the run (mostly heading away from me) standing about ~50m shot was a bit low and went clean through the leg without hitting the bone, i knew it was hit but couldn't tell if it was down or hiding in the long grass. Dog was a great help finding it but before i realized she found it, off it went, darting and dashing everywhere. She chased it all the way down the end of the paddock and managed to catch it. I was partially surprised as she had eaten most of a large home kill beef roast that was defrosting on the table i forgot about in my hurry to work this morning.

    Good on ya! Good luck and keep it up. I wish I’d known about swamp comp, have caught quite a few ferret polecat hybrids here plus the odd stoat. What trap are you using?

    @Flyblown, i am using several types of trap. The Ferret was caught in a cage trap baited with rabbit.

    The stoat and weasels were caught in either DOC 200's or Victor traps (the proper ones with the yellow treadle plate) All in homemade wooden boxes.

    Chicken eggs, smoked fish bones or rabbit meat have all proven to be successful baits for these mustilids.

    Thanks for that. The whole family is sitting here having dinner, formulating our 2019 anti-mustelid strategy! Need to get some more traps.

    Do you have any pictures of a Ferret polecat hybrid?
    Overkill is still dead.
