Things have been quite in the chicken run. But this morning I noticed the bait pile was gone. But the alarm never went off last night. So I move the sensor and my outside IR light. Then keeping an eye out as soon as it’s dark. 19:30 I see something. Small and fast. Waaait..... yes :thumbsup2: I think this was a head shot. But honestly I was just aiming at the dark spot in the grass.

So I have two bait piles set up in my yard. Both visible from inside my house. One is outside the living room. Bait pile is at 6 yards from my recliner. Second is out in my carport 20 yards from the dinning room window. Got one mouse at the 6 yard pile. Tonight this is the first pest I’ve gotten out in my carport. Annnnd the alarm is going off again as I type this.

My alarm system is working out great. Got a three more last night. Well ok one was this morning at 3:45am. I did miss one. Maybe that’s the one that came back out at 3:45.

You shot the cat, and possums, but didn't shoot the raccoon ? Dang.

Those smoked rat and mouse bacon sides and hams are gonna be small ones - you gotta start breeding them or something for quantity.

No No No. I did not shoot the cat or possum. I was just saying they show up at the bait pile and set off the alarm.
But I did just shoot another mouse :bigsmile:

Actually the shed was my backstop for when I sighted in the scope :AR15firing: Put the bait there so I knew I'd have a safe backstop and not have to worry about it when shooting in the dark. I should put some sound absorbing backing on that wall. The air rifle is whisper quiet but the lead hitting the shed paneling after it goes through a rat...at 2:30 in the a.m. sounds like a bomb going off !

Nice job. Things are kinda quite around my place. Can you turn down the regulator on your gun?
I’m not at all familiar with exactly how they work. But you know. Lower the power so your less likely to get pass through.
My gun is whisper quiet also. When I was shooting the ground squirrels at 20ish yard. The pellet hitting them in the head made more noise than the gun itself.
