Always happy to see ‘Big Steve’ flashing up on my phone as I know that there is going to be some shooting involved!

Big Steve runs SPD Pest Control, a local firm that deals with the pesky pests in and around peoples homes and farm buildings.

He informed me that we were out to do a clear up job and a rat shoot on a farm that we had visited recently. We had taken a few ferals over the past year, but the farmer wanted us to concentrate on the growing rat problem…And who am I to turn down some night vision rat and pigeon action?

I was looking for an excuse to get out and use the new NiteSite Viper anyway and I had a hunch that the Air Arms Ultimate Sporter combined with the NiteSite Viper was going to be a hit…literally!!

Tools for the job : The Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter, an amazingly well balanced and easy gun to shoot. This is the .22 model.

A good rest is essential when shooting with the NiteSite as you shoot in a heads up position. I use the Vanguard T62 Tripod Sticks to give the best stable shooting platform available.

We have been to this farm before to clear up some pigeons and rats, so it was nice to get called out again.

Its not quite dark outside, but as soon as you step into the sheds it's clear that the NiteSite is essential to see into the corners and high up into the beams.

1st customer of the night was this feral pigeon at about 35 yards. The NiteSite allowed me to draw the crosshairs right where i wanted them...The AirArms Ultimate Sporter did the rest.

I have a crystal clear view of the beams as i scan for any birds perched on the beams. With the pigeons now dealt with, it's time to look for some rodent action

Nowhere to hide. Even under the cover of darkness, the verminous rats can be seen as clear as day.

After a few have been shot, they know something is amiss but they haven't a clue where its coming from...I take advantage in that confusion!

You can run...But you can't hide.

As we cleared up it was apparent that these rats were BIG!
