    Central Otago at its best. Primo afternoon with bunnies enjoying the afternoon sun ... not for long though.
    Most shots were 200-350 yards. Champagne conditions and the Kimber .204 and range finder were absolutely on the money.

    Glad you got to go shooting, I thought there would have been snow everywhere. Good stuff!

    All good, I was just having a dig. I worked down there for a year, it was awesome.

    I meant 5% of a majillion also.

    Shot 10 odd aussie over stayers near whangarei. A couple got away and one was stuck in the tree. Lots of Joey in pouches. Had to whack 4 of them.

    I had heard that they smell bad but wasn't prepared for the smell. Next time going to pluck not skin.

    Another 250-odd bunnies last night. You know the numbers are bad when you can empty 3 mags with a very high hit-rate, without moving the truck once..

    Those are good numbers, I am not seeing anything like that here in Central where I am shooting.

    Haha, fortunately it's somebody else's bunny problem! This 250 were shot off the same 60 hectares as the 200+ from last week. They'll be desperate for the virus to be released next year.

    Gets scary when you can scan down a 500m fenceline with the thermal and see almost 100 rabbits have come down off the hill and are sitting out in just one paddock alone.

    I hope they don't release the new virus, I shoot a 250 acre block that was infected. I have shot 1350 off it in 8 months. It's got bugger all now and I am starting on the neighbours property .
    It's does take awhile to achieve but with some time and persistence I think with the current control methods available you can get them under control.
    The problem is the land owners who have no pest control in place and their land becomes riddled and of course spill into neighbouring property.

    I am just not a fan of releasing more and more virus's and pathogens into our environment. These things have being around for millions of years and survive because they adapt.....sooner or later one strain will species jump.

    My 10 cents worth.

    Plus it will really fuck up my rabbit shooting
