    Sub $100 spotlighting set up

    Just a little plug for a couple of sellers on here. Piercing the Darkness and Knives for Africa

    Have been getting back into the rabbits on the back of my folks having a serious issue on there little 13ha block. I'm talking 300+ rabbits shot in the last 4-5 months.

    Anyway got a little Marlin XT22 from here and she's a little sweet heart. Accurate as and with the DPT I got added quiet as a mouse.

    So I wanted to dabble in spotlighting without the crazy costs all the companies charge these days.

    Went for the Sorirn C8G as the spot. https://www.piercingthedarkness.co.n...hi-1700-lumens

    And the Nitecore GM05 for the mount. https://www.knives4africa.co.nz/product/nitecore-gm01/

    Both work a bloody treat. Under $100 and smoked over 20 bunnies on its first outing last night. Had the spot on for ages and still going strong when I called it quits. Couple of hours i'd say.

    Rabbits are becoming a major issue in many areas.
    In the last eight weeks I’ve shot 23 on our 1ha lifestyle block, and still see up to six each evening, there were 3 grazing on the lawn on Monday evening.

    Yeah mate its a big issue at my olds. In two paddocks we will have to keep the cattle out due to the burrows. Will have to graze them with the goats and emus. Mum is dead set sick of the fuckers

    Well you have been a slack prick not getting on to them earlier.... Salt air luring you in the other direction.

    Nice. I have a similar setup. Love rabbit shooting! I like a second torch for spotting.

    Well if anyone needs a hand in getting rid of them Iíll gladly oblige and skin a few for your pot.
    Gibbo, I finally found those elusive Te Puke fallow. They are skittery little buggers though and itís not a luxurious walk either
