Airgun Rat shooting with Verminhunters TV

Hi all, In this 20min episode I meet up with Simon Pittaway and Davy Thomas from Vermin Hunters TV. The lads very kindly invited me down to their rat permission in Oxfordshire for some mental rat shooting chaos. Sadly when we arrived at the permission the site manager informed us that they had just poisoned the site heavily. We were all a little concerned that we would only get a couple of rats on this evening. We were wrong! Once night fell the resident population (although thinned out considerably) made an appearance. This place has rats everywhere you look, up down left right they are everywhere! Unfortunately the layout of the farm means that some of the rats shot could not be retrieved. You see in this video Si, Davy and I take another chunk out of the population with in excess of 60-70 rats being shot. We collected 41 rats in total at the end of the session. Not a bad night really with Davy Thomas accounting for most of the kills using his trusty HW97k and a simple lamp set up. Great job guys and thank you very much for the invite.
