    I got one once and it was big and heavy so i weighed it, it came in at 1.5 kg. I was listening to a talk by Cam Speedy and he was talking about 2kg ferrets in i think it was Tongariro Nat Park .. that is just enormous.

    I shot one or two in the Twizel area that were the size of a small cat, even the first load of no.4 didn’t kill them.

    Some of the ferrets you see out on the nearby Awhitu Peninsula are the size of dogs.

    I have been catching a few ferrets around the street but mostly they get shot and tailed for the swamp comp – I don’t catch any stoats or weasels round here
    Although I always have a cage out and a couple of Fenn6 traps – things have gone quiet at present
    So who better to find us a few mustilids is @BillyXmas546 up at North Head on the Manakau Harbour – he gets them frequently – but he is up there and we want them down here in Tauranga
    I had a trip planned to Long Bay and Billy was heading into Auckland – so we met in Silverdale for lunch and a transfer of iced bodies in chilly bins – just one ferret and a couple of weasels
    Poor bloody ferret never reckoned on traveling so far and ending up in so many freezers and chilly bins
    From what I could see – he looks like a nice ferret – weasels are in the plastic bag - it will be interesting to see how he comes out when stuffed - thanks for all the effort BillyXmas546
    So if anyone has a spare stoat or ferret in the freezer in the Tauranga area – we are still looking for some bodies – they need to still have a tail

    From that to this –
    This is how the ferret from @BillyXmas546 turned out – I fetched it back from up North for PFBOP – they got a local tax man to do it – understand it has now gone back to PF Waitakere Ranges for educational purposes
    Very nice Bill – thanks for your effort

    They do such a great job with those faces! Really tempted to learn first hand how to do proper taxidermy like that. Are the noses and lips some sort of rubbery artsy material? Epoxy?

    When I first saw that pic I thought "who the fuck would keep a ferret as a pet, that one's mad as a cut snake!"...

    Then I see its stuffed.

    So yeah, thats a pretty bloody good job done there
