    A Boy a Bunny and a CZ.

    I had a brand new CZ languishing unused in the safe for the last couple of years so in a fit of inspiration decided it was well overdue to go for its first hunt.
    Access to a handy orchard obtained the only problem I had was I could not remember what range I zeroed it at when I fitted the scope so long ago so a quick trip up to @Pengy s place to zero check and give the kids a go on the gongs, They went pretty well too considering the length of pull of the thing and their size.
    Walking the rows we glasses each one carefully myself with my leupys and the boy with his 8x21 Yukons. For a very compact light Cheap! set of kids binos they are surprisingly good.





    The little fellas were conspicuous by there absence but the numbers are kept very low in the area then typically as we got back nearer the buildings and other various piles of cover/shelter finally I spotted one.
    Ranged at 170y we swapped over a couple of rows then stalked into 75y and belly crawled back into the bunny row and shuffled around to get a safe back stop.
    A cci sub was noisily chambered then I squeezed of a round. Click........thwok and the rabbits lights went out.
    Dropped the mag and removed the freshly chambered round to make safe(semis ) and wandered up.
    The Boy had gone from starting to whine to excited chatter and wouldn't be quiet so that was end of hunt as we spooked one more.

    Yea probably,I would have given him a go if there was a bigger backstop.

    Fantastic VC.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I hope so guys.....I try not to put too much pressure onto my kids into doing the things I love, My dad put me right off some things he was and still is fanatical about.
    But also I was a bit slow to realize that if asked if they want to go fishing/hunting/camping the answer will always be no(because there is computers and toys at home) but if I just tell them they are coming they may winge a bit for a start but always end up having fun/enjoying themselves (both kids)

    They are townie kids but it is not their fault that is where we live.

    That's the best thing to do in my opinion, show them the alternatives and at least they at least know there are other options out there.
    My 6-7 year old loves playing on Mums phone and watching Netflix, operates both better than I do. But he is also the one now asking to be taken tramping and camping.

    That's one happy looking bunny hunter there @veitnamcam

    Time to start with the stalking training while he's still keen.

    Won't be long before he's fit for the carry

    Cheers

    Good stuff. Get into an area that the target species is a 'sure thing', and watch them develop into a keen hunter/fisher/tramper.............

    Computers, TV's and the like don't compare with taking time with the kids into our outdoors. They will remember these outings for life.

    The young fella is a complete natural in my opinion. I reckon his hit rate was at least 99% on the gongs at 50 and 100 yards, despite the rifle being too long for him and having to work with aprox 6" eye relief
