After all the bad weather we’ve had recently, I just had to book today off work. This permission is over-run with rabbits, and it’s my duty to remove as many as possible.
1. 45 Yards directly into a light breeze. This was a long stalk, around 25 minutes or so. Thankfully he was more concerned about getting his fill.
2. 30 Yards, only a very young rabbit but all the same in a farmers eyes. This was a standing shot, leaning against a gate post.
3. 44 Yards, another standing shot, leaning against a gate support post. Incredibly awkward shot with a camera attached as the rifle can’t be shouldered. Slight decline and downwind. Apologies for the poor white balance but I was being pestered by a golden retriever at the time.
4. 50 yards. I can only assume it was a ‘flier’ as the pellet sailed over his head and missed completely. I originally thought that I had wounded him, and immediately followed up with a good solid shot.
