He mentioned putting a light on them so i did my side door light casts out easy the 20 yards to my feeder and i have shot many that way in the past . So yesterday i set my white board back up on the wood pile and put out some seed i figured i would leave the light on and set up the driveway sensor . Around 11:30 i was watching hockey and realized i never put on the light or sensor i flick on the light and walk to the window to turn on the sensor and hot dog there mr rat getting his. Not even thinking about the dead wife from the day before .The weather here on LI has been awesome and i don't have screens in my windows never did and sure as beans the R7 which i now call the joykiller or josefine after my x wife is at her ready . He slipped behind some wood and about 3 minutes later he was eating lead thats flying through the night .Posted Imagemy white board at 20 yards and last nights quarry whoooooooo life is good Posted Image

Nice one Chris you grow them big back there on Long Island. You need to shoot them before you fatten them up. :smiley_green_with_envy:

Way to go Chris...!! When I was shooting rats inside my friends barn, there were no lights..just light coming thru big barn doors..this made shooting tough up in the rafters..Yesterday,I went back and there were some 12 foot long steel corugated roof panels leaning lengthwise along a wall in the barn.I heard noises,and some rats were running along inside the corugations...I had to get down on my knees and shoot them that way from one end.....light from outside barn was shining down corugations and da rats were highligted....I could even see their reflection on inside of the panels.. I'm going to get a light for my pistol with a remote switch...lol

When I was in high school, I got 10 cents per rat in a turkey brooder. I would hang out with my Sheridan in the rafters of the 440 ft. long building at night and protect 20,000 baby turkeys from the rats who found the turkeys "tasty"!
