    Geez guys, you're hammering those things!  

    I have yet to see a rat, but then I'm probably not in the right spots at night.

    Yeah for sure.

    I've been thinking about stopping at the local landfill to see if they have a pest problem.  😉

    Hoping they do and that I can go there at night with the SL and X-Sight.  🙂

    Yes now your thinking, my friend Andy in Puerto Rico says his Aquadilla landfill is full of rats but he has not secured a permission as of late. I am securing my house and air fare down at present for the green iguana hunt  but will remind him of that idea.

    Do it Bob,  we need more rat mayhem in this thread.  These motherf$#kers spread the black plague,  think of the children.

    The children….LOL!!!!

    There are actually two landfills local to me, both within 10 miles, one to the south and the other to the west.   The large one is the one I'll be going for.  🙂

    I'm pretty sure that the farms you visit have rats.  I shoot a farm and there are thousands of rats, ya just never see them during the day, only at night do they come out.  Best night for my buddy was 62 confirmed, with at least another 10 possibles.  It's a LOT of fun, just need the right gear.

    Man o man what a disappointment,  I was sitting a full hour before I saw my first one come galloping in from the property line coming straight towards me.  I'm sitting in the dark with the nitesite lighting him up like its noon.  He's totally unaware,  line him up and SMACK.  He does the chicken dance and from the very start I could tell he was big,  at least 9 inch body maybe more.  I usually don't go up and check them right away in case there's another about to pop out so I bide my time.

    I keep panning and scanning and I see fur,  ALOT of fur.  NOOOO a raccoon has set in for his late night snack before I can even check how big it was.  I run inside to grab a flashlight because I'm not gonna get up in this things grill if I can't see him.  I get close trying to shoo him away,  wasnt moving,  just keeps eating.  I run back and grab a broom and start wacking it on the ground to get him to leave it alone for a minute so I can see how big the damn thing is.  He grabs it and runs off,  ahh f^$k it. 

    A little while later his offspring I think came along for a visit,  no dead rats for him so it sauntered off.  At least I got a picture of the second one I got,  all in all a fun evening and I did see another that looked like a megarat hopefully I can get him soon.  And I learned my lesson if I think it's big im gonna go check it out right away haha.
