This isnt the elusive one, this is the scout. The phantom one was watching you taking this one out.   8)

If ranchibi has been on vigil at that kill zone for a while, he is breeding phantoms, because they are the only ones left to breed!

Tommy, Thank you so much! Boy, I thought I posted this in the Hunting Gate right after...nope! LOL! How did I manage to shoot that rattus!? :)

Randall, you did post this in the Hunting Gate, and we are getting reports that this doesn't belong in the Airgun gate.  I am going to try to merge the 2 topics.

#12!!!!!! I'm glad to see you have all the rats going to your feeder...... just kidding, but I haven't had a rat since I forget when...... Squirrels at the feeder now, but they are very skittish.......they take off as soon as I go in the patio..... I'll get them, just need to put up some Camo net Bug screens in the window......

Nice shooting there Randall

Kevin, thank you very much! Boy, Id rather be shooting a ground squirrel in daylight than these rattus at night..the lighting has been really bad since this big tree has grown its leaves blocking the streetlights light that usually helps illuminate the bait station! Maybe you made the rattus extinct in your neck of the woods! :)...or theyre scared out of their wits and are keeping a very wide berth around your property!

You can setup one of these for your rats and a feeder for the squirrels

This is really effective



Not as fun as shooting but effective

It would surely allow you more time to sleep and pee, Randall!

Dinh, true true! Been so hot and muggy here....I usually sleep thru the night but, with weather like this I dont mind getting up and ratting for a spell! Although this rat rig is darn cool :).

I've got the Walk the plank bucket trap (same thing), it works, but it has killed more birds than Rodents, not that I mind, but it's not as fun, I like being interactive with my pesting, thus the need for accurate pellet guns, the bucket trap is mainly for the ones that won't go to the feeder, but still need removal.

Kevin, I too like to interact with my pests and offer them a JSB sleeping pill :).
