Today was another crazy day down in the gorge. 13 possums! Unbelievable. I am chuffed. Started from your trap 27 towards the bridge. All new traps. The next one is 31. No possum. Very disappointed. Then on it went. 32 had one. Then 33 had three! And so on each trap one possum and then 38 another two and finally 40 another two.
Plus one hedgehog in trap DOC250/2! Look it up on the map.
Now tomorrow big round of trapping. Checking the other 30 traps on the other side. Could be another few. But now it seems we are going to make 200 hundred by Christmas. Total now 190 possies!! Poor things. The walkway will start to stink of dead possies and no walkers will want to come through! Mind you I make sure to throw them really far and way down to the river. But one today got stuck in a tree just down the slope and I could not get to it. Not many walkers will notice. Today there was a dead possum right next to the walkway and I only saw it because it smelled. Two women who usually walk the walkway every day and I know them went right passed it. So most walkers just walk and look where they step rather than looking into the bush.
