    Duckseason is over so I took "Bo" for a hunt on the lead,armed with the shotty.Spotted a hare in the headlamp but couldn't see what was behind so we carried on to a set of yards where a coon was seen.Bo was told to sit and didn't flinch when the gun went off. This little fella has only been behind the gun for a week.

    An armed tramp looking for deer, ended up in some target practice on a magpie. Needless to say, a 143gn 6.5mm projectile makes short work of a magpie. At 250M it was a little more sporting than the normal backyard magpies.
    My mate bemused by this waste of ammo, decided to video it. I'm still waiting for him to upload it.

    He sent it through. Digital zoom on his phone is not the best.

    It's gonna have to be sighted in again after i get it shortened and threaded but i simply couldn't wait! took the new 10/22 out, sighted in, 20 something possums claimed and just shy of a kilo of fur in one night. Bloody happy, was amazed how accurate it was, wasn't sure what to expect.

    Not that i know of, they ran a trapping program on it years ago but the numbers have bounced back. We've been shooting there every week for months and haven't made a dent.
    I think it's because the property backs onto an orchard, the kauri plantations seem to be a favourite of theirs too.

    8 Possums and 1 rabbit down last night, so that was pretty good for us.

    Also seen a few more that will have to wait to next time. Highlight was seeing two good size pigs

    A great day in central, got up at 7am and grabbed a coffee , threw a few softbais and got a lovely little 3 lb Brown Trout , released.
    Up onto the farm. 22 only , no heavy hitters.
    The hills were moving, just one of those days and I ran out of ammo with 36 shot, big, big healthy rabbits.

    i sat a worked a face, one of the rabbits ended up gut shot nd screaming so sat and watched .
    Sure enough this tiger turned up but cunning as a shit house rat, I pulled total fluke shot, 80 mtrs running between the rocks and bair.............headshot.......couldn't do it again in another 1000 shots.
    For scale that is a full length barrel Norinco with suppressor and the cat is just dumped on the ground and not stretched out.
    A beast Tom, I am guessing but 15 to 20 kg of bad arse Moggy.Name:  DSC_0016.JPG
