    Scully Forgot to say, after you have tripped over them a couple of times you remember that they are there.

    My nets like to tangle me on the buttons on my cuffs and shoulders, are those shoulder straps to keep caps in ?, When you go in and out of hide. I fix guide ropes around the hide poles and pull them taught with tent pegs pulling the poles outwards. Gives you a little bit of extra space. My satisfying shot is a departing quartering bird, where you don't swing through but just a static aim snap shot in front and down it goes.
  3. I have read, I think it was Peter Theobald, shooting pigeons coming to water. I would imagine this would be during unusually hot weather.
  4. Not over thinking, just like trying different baits. Have caught rats on all the usual baits, plus jelly babies, marshmallows and nougat bars to name a few.
  5. One of the best tunnel trap locations using fenn 4's I have for rats unbaited in a farmyard is on a water trough. Other locations sometimes need a baited trap , which I like to try different baits. Has anyone tried water as bait ? I was thinking a cap off a coffee jar or similar in a blind tunnel set up, so rat has to cross the trigger plate. I imagine they can smell / sense water. Food, water and shelter, rat heaven. Any thoughts ?
  6. Hi, sorry for late answering. I can see you might be sorted now so if not needed no problems. Crosman Premier about 400, H+N Field Target Trophy about 400, H+N Silhouette about 150, Crow Magnum ( which is the American name for Bisley Pest Control ) about 600, and mixed trial pack about 100. Above quantity's stated are estimates. About 1500 plus total. I have tried to get on Pellpax to work out a fair price but the site is down at the moment. But it's the postage for you because of the weight I am concerned for you. Anyway, if you're sorted no worries.
  7. I should have a couple of tins left over from my Theoben Fenman. If you are willing to pay postage and something for them. Give me a couple of days and I'll get back to you. I'm sure I have a box of Crosman Premiers and Pest Control.
  8. I am not a complainer usually, but felt obliged to view my opinions on Natural Resources Wales ludicrous thoughts on upcoming General Licence changes. We all now who is behind this, and they are supposed to be animal / countryside lovers. I wonder if they witnessed a magpie taking a robin chick from a nest in their garden would they think ' fill your boots buddy ' , or would they scare it away to cause a problem for somebody else. It was a polite and to the point piece of correspondence, stating facts and my dismay to the proposed changes in Wales. Let's hope someone sensible reads it.

    New York

    My friend is flying out to New York today for a wedding. Him, his girlfriend and his son, they are staying in the Central Park area. They have pre bought some passes to visit attractions, but is there any gun / fishing stores he could visit ?
  10. When the crow was walking, I was pulling the trigger for you. Then I expected a chunk to come out of the fence post.
  11. I sometimes use an umbrella when hide building, and have pondered one of these. But am concerned about the sides coming into contact with brambles etc and tearing.

    Bank accounts.

    Haven't opened a bank account for years, so don't know if this would count. Would he yet have some sort of student uni card that he could use ? It must go in his favour that he is heading in a responsible way, and taking life seriously and wanting to do things correctly. I wish him all the best.
  13. I only catch moles as a hobby / exercise / to help my friend out and have a play on his quad. I am not a professional but do OK. Everything I've read or watched on trapping says to never set traps in the mole hills themselves. Yet I've just watched a professional on you tube, and he does just that, and he catches. Anybody do this ?
  14. Well I've tried gravy granules and cinnamon powder with no takers. But saying that I've caught 5 half grown from this location recently so will have to try somewhere else to see if powders and granules work.
  15. Could it be the suggestion that Dave-G offered above ? If so there are going to be a lot of vehicles in for attention.
