    i will change over to the rimfires and get stuck into these little buggers . . . another population explosion, been waiting for it and here it is again.

    the farmer gave me 2 X 500 round bricks which is a great help

    Folks caught a second gnarly ferret this morning. The pair have torn the heads of four chickens in the last ten days. Not sure how to post the video

    Yeah we are over run with little rabbits also, 105 shot last weekend and they are still everywhere. All .22 shooting with subs as even the 17 HMR is to expensive to run on them.
    Man they are small at 80 mtrs plus

    After 6 months out of action with a busted shoulder it was good to get back out there again - knocked over a couple of these. Farmer was happy and so was my dog (stinky billys).

    138 of these stinky fellas culled for a high country station. Too hot to save meat until last evening and way too far from a freezer!

    Good work.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Out last night to a farm that doesn't produce much nowadays. Total for the four of us was less than 20 for the night. Fairly trying conditions with a strong Nor'wester and long grass.

    Oh and the 223 does work a lot better with the bolt taken along for the trip.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    more challengeing without the bolt as you will have to get closer to throw the bullets by hand.

    Been way too long since I've been out for a wander in the neighbours paddocks.
    Spotted this guy about 200m out with the Maxtoch. From there it got easier, as it ran towards the light until about 50m away.
