    Not yet mate, was really just a sighting in session with the new 17, triggers a shocker but can work on that. Slotted two rabbits with it at 100mtrs so looks like it should make a good platform for reaching the stuff beyond the .22 .
    Once I have done some damage with it I will post a photo.

    Been keen to get the youngest into .223 for a while. He was unsure as he's very slightly built and small for the stock but he managed this at 140 yds with a perfect shoulder shot. He's now wanting a .223 immediately!

    Not today but after missing a couple of goats on sunday I decided to shoot a hare. Managed to hit the bugger right where I was aiming at 50yds on the move from standing. Either a bloody good shot in my books or a very unlucky hare... Had him in a pie with blueberries for dinner last night. Not half bad.

    on one of the farms where i shoot, the farmer had a huge dog. not sure of breed, but looked like an english mastif. he looked like a hound from hell, but was a gentle giant. i always used to get a rabbit for him. he'd rear up on his back legs, open his jaws like a crocodile and take the rabbit whole!

    It's an old mail bag made from heavy cotton. It sits in my day pack until I shoot something.

    I gut (actually paunch) mine and feed them whole. My bitch loves the heads and I've heard feeding things fur on is better for the dogs. Plus rabbits seem to carry their fat in their skin on the belly side. I've heard that people can starve to death on rabbits because they have no fat in the meat. I don't know how true that is, but they definitely improve when you wrap them in bacon before cooking. The fat is what really makes the coat shine. Dogs do way better on possum, but, so they say, variety is the spice of life.

    Easily washable too! I'm wondering why I haven't thought of that before. Great idea.

    Lots of people just use an old pillow case. You can buy meat bags (usually made of canvas) but they tend to be quite spendy for what can be fairly easily substituted for next to nothing.
