    What little pesties did you bowl over today?

    My first one was a rat that succumnd too bait good job

    Next was a friggen magpie that swooped me multiple times this week so today I was armed again and got the attacker

    And not long after the magpie I pulled off a great shot on a crowI rekon 50mtres with the .22 lr model 14p stirling.

    Then i saw mum rabbit and two little ones,so i never took the shot. Will wait to they are bigger for the oven

    Farking Magpies Dundee, I hate the Aussie mongrels. Shot 37 of them on the farm last summer but the get smart and work out that man with 22 equals death so the piss off when they see that. In the end I was having to shoot out of the windows of the house to get the little shits. A couple of weeks back I was coming back from a walk at 5:30 in the morning and I saw I had got a possum in a Timms trap and bugger me there were three of its mates lined up for a turn. Quick sprint to get the .22 saw those three go to the happy hunting grounds in the sky as well.
