Nope, I did not take a shot at any of these Rattus. The microphone on Arlo is fairly sensitive and often when a rat evacuates, it makes noise as it bonks against the metal fence pieces I put up to discourage the raccoons and possums from climbing up on the feed station.

Captain, it is called "Game Management" don't you know?!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Well Alan, game management is multifaceted, it also includes elimination of weaker or undesirable specimens.  To date Steve hasn't found any desirable ones to "keep". 8)

That they did; I think Steve should name them, possibly Soleimani 1 and Soleimani 2.  If that's to geopolitical please censure.

Actually, I think it is appropriate! They're all rats!
