    I just blasted another Muskrat out of the front pond, little bastards dig dens on the edge of the lawn which cave in when I am out walking along the edge. I love pump shotguns!

    UPDATE!!!

    While getting the mower ready to cut grass I noticed the tail of the Muskrat moving around near the edge of the pond, funny I thought since it sunk in the middle. I walked down and half of the body was gone. Then I noticed that the big a$$ Snapping Turtle I posted pics of last week was eating it. So far I have been unsuccessful of catching the turtle, maybe a couple of slugs Will provide a little hydro shock. Further updates will be added as they take place.

    Couple of years ago, mowing the longer grass near the pasture. I saw some movement through the grass. It was a large rat trying to make it to the pasture's long grass. Sped the mower up to max rat attack speed. HmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmWam-ammmmmmmmmmmmmmm............got him!!! Eeeuuee, blood splatter on the fence post!!! :haha:

    If the turtle is eating the muskrats you hate so much why bother him?

    Update: Snapper Captured!
    HPIM0715.GIF
    I lay in wait for the Snapper to return to finish his dinner of carrion. Knowing it is vital to stay unnoticed. I did not flinch a muscle in the blistering heat, while getting bit repeatedly by deer flies:eek1: .

    Turtle captured, since I was alone, no pics of the battle of the capture. It is hard to notice the turtles very pi$$ed off mood in this pic:mad: , needless to say he was not very happy.

    For the benefit of CK5 and for further biological study I took it upon myself to weigh the specimen. By this time the Snapper understood that no harm was to come to him, and he cooperated fully.

    I do not believe the turtle I caught today was the same as the one on my dock I took pics of and posted last week(above pic), which is much larger.(This is how I knew it was not the same one:D )
