    Rabbit control, Tekapo

    https://youtu.be/S_CvVremLT4

    Recently I was stoked to get access to a Station in the Tekapo area to do some rabbit control. I loaded over 300 rounds of 17 hornet for the arvo. A bit of an overkill lol. We did shoot about 120 furries from 3 shooting positions. I took video footage from two spots, unfortunately the first spot was the most spectacular scenery with no footage taken
    Hopefully we did a good enough job that we’ll get an invitation back. Was so much fun

    They did request that we left the carcasses for the hawks. A healthy hawk population helps I guess but what they really need is a miracle.
    The damage done is incredible.

    We head south end of this week. One of wife’s friends near Dunedin has a property she wants me to rid of rabbits and geese. Bring it on!

    The 17 Hornet works a treat. Good shooting.

    Nice work J, a target rich environment like that and the heap of trigger time it gives is certainly sooo much fun! And great for honing your craft. Im looking forward to May
    when the apple harvest is completed and I can get my 17 Hornet back into the orchard, the first time back in there each year is awesome, bunnies everywhere that have had no pressure on them ;-)
