1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I recently got the nod to shoot at a farm nearby which has a big rat problem in the yard and in the farmer’s wife’s garden (of all places). She was keen to let me have a go at them but the farmer just wants me to thin out the rabbits in a nearby field. This is fine by me, but my passion was to have a go at the rats. Hopefully his mind will change in the future.

    Then out of the blue, I’ve just got the go ahead for a new ratting perm, quite by chance after speaking to a mate at work who’s daughter has a small holding. Going for a reccy tonight before dusk with the NV for a look about and to suss some shooting points. Apparently they have a big problem with rats, especially in the winter.
    The perm is approx. 5 acres in size set in the back of beyond, a couple of ditches run adjacent to the land. The surrounding area is all fields. They keep pigs in one pen which has a couple of out buildings/sheds and chickens/geese in another with a similar building. He keeps all feed in another building. She has told me on the phone that rat runs are visible, and that vermin is regularly seen / trapped. Her husband shoots now and again but doesn’t really have the time so happy days. I’ll post an update once I’ve sussed the place and hopefully some vids of my exploits (inspired by others on here and ‘Squirril Hunter’ on Youtube. LOL)
    Oh happy day :D:up:

    I think its a good year for rats. Does everyone agree? My perm is swarming. After yesterdays rain they were out in force and a good dozen went down in only half an hour. I also shot a few dew drops hanging on the nettles. I could have sworn they were blinking ;-)

    Just got back after a look see. Needless to say, I will be back on Thursday. The place is alive with them.
