    Walked my bum off for 3 rabbits and a plover! Took the long way home up the hill. Left my suppressor at home so POI was slightly affected, but @mikees Leupold is a delight, bought a sun shield for it.

    Glad you like it, I'm still waiting on its replacement can't decide what, i did hope you were happy with its condition.
    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    Don't over do it old fulla.
    I think you have a good area and excuse for a new long range varmint rifle. Just sit at the top of the hill and pick them off, don't be doing too much exercise.

    Maca you blind old bugger, you went past 247 rabbits in those pictures alone.
    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'm working on it @bully, nice to know I can still get around these hills, enjoy the exercise as much as the shooting, farmers wife thinks I'm nuts, she might have a point!

    Have any of you used a rabbit distress caller to lure cats in? I have come across Australians and Americans using them quite successfully. They're quite cheap on ebay so I thought I'd pick one up and see if I can get a cat.

    Or do you guys mainly do a cage trap with a bit of stick or metal to hold up the door which gets knocked over?

    Thanks to a couple good buggers on here with help. Got my Marlin 25N with a Vortex 4-16 mounted. Longest shot so far 180m a few from 70-150m just need to get better at reading the wind and knowing the drift.
