Im not in an area of many rats but we get some bigguns in our limestone and granite bottom rivers. Where they actually hole up in these stone tributaries is sometimes a mystery but they do get big.

26 inches nose to tail and just over 19" on the board. No bites on this big ol female! Shes makes the 17" rat next to her look kinda small.

Sorry, not to hijack the post but pcr2, if you're putting out oaks you may want to check out Ken Asmus (Oikos Nursery) up in Michigan who specializes in sweet acorn oaks.

OK, now back to our regularly scheduled broadcast.....

I know half as much as I should Pcr. But I get enough peaches and apples to keep me fat and happy for a couple months lol.

An ounce or prevention is worth a pound of cure. Words to take to heart on fruit.
