Hens were having a panic attack, Went out in the rain to see a half white/ half grey Weasel run in the chicken door, closed that door quick & went in after him, Can they move after the first miss of .22 rat shot, He covered every inch of that coop till he stopped for a second. Happy hens now

So half white/half grey would be an elderly, caucasian weasel.

Surprised that 22 rat shot was effective on a weasel. I've had very little luck with it on rodents.

Rats and pigeons. If you don't hit them in the face that little #12 shot has little effect.

Winchester super x is a better shell than the plastic nosed. And a smooth bore makes a big difference for pattern. Super x in a cage trap and a coon doesn't need any help

Comparison video of 22, 22 mag and 45 shot cartridges. I'm not surprised that the 22 was inferior to the other cartridges in this video. Some of the 22 shot didn't even make it through the paper target.

A 38 loaded with #9 shot will make short work of field rats kicked up by the mower. No need to get out of the seat.

A friend set up a trail cam once on an active weasel spot. He said it was amazing how active weasels are.
