good stuff. get into it guys. lots of us hunt the same area regularly, check trail cams etc. how about carrying in a stoat trap, add another aspect to your time in the bush?
its pretty good fun, sort of like setting a net or long line, you never know what you might catch.
bloody rewarding when you catch one of the vile little bastard things! plus you are helping your game bird, rabbit and native fauna and your doing your bit for the bush we all love Smiley

Agree with Chris, get stuck into it!!!

Some more DoC 250 traps for the Northern Whangamarino Wetland Assoc predator control program.


And some Fenn traps and Timms (for cats) for a local wetland / pond. All courtesy of the Waterfowl Enhancement Trust.

We have upped our kill rate significantly by using gloves for handling baits and setting traps. Fish oil with canola for lure. Use best and freshest meat. Had an unbelievable kill rate ...wait for it using venison backsteak.Cats are not being caught by paw but by neck.i.e. Possum Master traps.

irony=a thread bitching about lack of ducks can go 20 pages any day of the week. a thread about actually getting off your arse and helping to create more ducks for YOUR enjoyment gets six replies mainly from people who already trap Roll Eyes

Trapping stoats significantly improved two spots I shoot in the Waikato and up the Coromandel  Cool Would amaze you what it does for the pheasant numbers too. Get into it, look after your sport and enhance the environment!
