Rat Naming Contest - Win a Call from Watkins Duck Calls!

rat-thumbs-up-bd01The ultimate winner will receive a custom mallard duck call from Watkins Duck Calls in acrylic or stabilized wood. There is also an early entry bonus prize in the pot for the first 25 Refuge Rats that make a rat name submission.

Watkins Duck Calls

Brian Watkins has been duck and goose hunting on the public waters of Chesapeake Bay for about 30 years which requires a great deal of effort and preparation on the part of the hunter. Virginia has an elaborate set of public goose and duck hunting laws which are complicated, but anybody that hunts public lands, refuges, or waters knows that though the amount of effort required to be successful can be great, it just makes the good days that much sweeter. Give Watkins Duck Calls a holler if you hunt public lands, waters, or refuges, and are looking for a new duck call.

RatLabs Active in Rat Experiments


We have been conducting several Rat experiments here at the RatLabs and have made some exciting discoveries.

We are also solicitating your participation with these series of tests.

Multiple Rat breeds were first analyzed and their genetics mapped using the latest genome technology. The findings were mind blowing.

Though the subsequent experiments did include Rats, none were harmed in the process. No electrical stimulus, scalpels, syringes, or cutting edge pharmaceuticals were used during the tests under highly controlled conditions.

The primary implements used were creativity, sketches, and fun, as the tests were purely illustrative in nature.
