Kick 'Em Up - Knock 'Em Down

« on: October 01, 2013, 06:24:04 AM »

May have my first ground predator problem, been quite a year of firsts.  Had 8 dead birds two days ago with a couple of them having their back halves eaten and a couple with heads popped off, then 5 again yesterday.  I could not find any holes in the perimeter of the pen but last night I found a tunnel out in the middle of the pen, 40' from the closest edge.  It comes up in a brushy area where I have one of the feeders and is near 3 of the dead birds I found.  Does this sound like a weasel?

Anyways, I put a live trap at the tunnel exit but I doubt if they are dumb enough to go in it.  Any ideas to get rid of weasels?

I know I have rats back again and have been working on that problem.  Do you think rats would eat half a pheasant?

Thanks

Chukar and Pheasant Propogation - Trust my advice based on the knowledge that I have not been doing this very long and don't know a lot more than I do know...  But at least I know that I don't know
