Retired ? Nice little earner !

Anyone with a bit of time on their hands could surely undercut these prices. Must be the same around the country, most city's.

Yes an interesting read.
The man seem's to be a professional pest controller so does need to charge, looks like he does get results.
I would assume that he will have to visit the site/back garden, put straw bales down to create a safe back stop, then either get the customer or himself to bait for a few days then go and shoot it with a .22lr, so there is some time and effort involved, then there is also the safety side of it with being sued if some thing goes wrong.

I'm sure that's the bloke that was on tv. he just baits (or home owner does) then he waits in an upstairs window until it shows. he charges for every fox shot on top of his visit so making a bob or two. Seems simple enough for someone with time on their hands, and all perfectly legal.

If using a 22lr at close-ish range, I presume he would use hollow points. I see no bolt on that rifle, so I presume it's a semi-automatic.

I wonder how many window frames he has shot-up? :lol: It's apparently easy to do, shooting from windows :oops:

I'm not sure about window frames but I have been inside a motor and the guy on the back hit the roof. That scared the sh1t out of me.
