Rat Hunting
« on: November 26, 2013, 11:25:17 AM »
Hello guys it's good to see that there is other air gun fans in IL. I have been looking for a spot to rat hunt for some time now. I'm trying to find a garbage dump in Indiana or Michigan somewhere. This summer I'm going to do some serious looking there has to be somewhere like this. I would even consider bringing the R.V. and making a weekend of it. I will let you guys know if I find something, with several of us looking we should be able to find something. Also there is an air gun show in Kalamazoo Mi. this August 17. I plan on attending.

Hi Kevin,
 Rat hunting sounds like a blast, but the only ones I've seen are in Chicago (not just politicians). I have no idea where a dump even is anywhere near here. If you do find one and need help exterminating them I'd love to do it.

I know I  have been looking for a while now, I was actually considering taking the boat on the cal sag river at night or baiting them in a certain spot and shoot them from the boat. I will be looking in the spring in Indiana or Michigan also. Where are you located.

I'm in Algonquin. You'd probably get a ton of 'em along the Cal Sag.
