RAT HUNTING CHRONICLES
by Ron Stephen
As the sun is about to set over the Chicken buildings/Ratting grounds. Time to gear up and get ready for the nightly invasion of fury terrorists…
The silo’s are full of chicken feed that is automatically mechanically distributed through-out the chicken cages containing 25,000 to 50,000 chickens…
Row, after row, after row, of mechanical driven automatic feeders, providing a “Free-for-All-Feeding”. When the lights go out,… the rats COME out, (in DROVES !)
Rows, and rows, and more rows of chickens with open troughs of feed available 24/7. with this much grain spread through-out the building, it’s easy to see why there are thousands of rats each night
Yes, several times I have considered taping up my pant legs so they don’t go crawling up my leg! EWWwwwww!
OK, So,… moving on.
A Red Headlight, and/or Handheld light can be very helpful in spotting and chasing them too…
If you miss, do you end up putting a hole in the roof? (.177 or .22)?
