    Possum Payday For Boys

    Every Friday and Saturday night the Dundee bros head out to set traps,Dan Dundee aged 13 and Sean Dundee 9.

    Sean D uses his Grandads cage trap and has caught two possums and the neighbours cat and has also plucked two possums after a spotlight.

    Dan D uses these new leg hold traps as the ole faithful gins are banned.

    Anyone got a rough idea how much the fur is worth of a single possum if you pluck it?

    I've got a few bags of it but I've been a bit slack at doing it the last couple of times. The 17 makes a bit of a mess of them sometimes.

    The fur is so light that even 20 doesn't seem like it'd make a kilo. That's a liter of water.
    I'll have to pop it on the scales and find out how much the fur I've got so far weighs.
