    243 this one. Just getting to know it. Have not had the 223 out yet. Soon. The 223 has a short pull and I need to address that.

    Saw a big cat dive into the scrub coming home from shifting stock so raced back and grabbed the 223. Got to the outlook, rabbit squealed for ages stoping and going. Caught him out as he slinked towards me crossing a stock bridge I was waiting for him to use.. Wasn't the big one I saw probably it's offspring.

    Had a session on Sat evening with twin Tikka T1x 17hmrs.

    A mate really liked using mine so he got one for himself and I helped out setting it up. Mounting a scope, zeroing and validating drop to 200 yards.

    Then we went out to the orchard to target some pesky rabbits.

    Here he is with his first rabbit for the arvo, a neck shot at 150 yards. We spent a couple of hours nailing pests out to 170 yards no problem. He's got a 24x scope on it.

    After dark we swapped over to my T1X which I've just put the Pard NV008 back onto, man I almost forgot how effective the IR is, and awesome fun. The rabbits just don't stand a chance.

    The T1x, like any modern Tikka may not have the beauty and class of some of the others, but boy oh boy are they accurate and a very effective and easy to use pest eradicator.

    Euro magpies. Actually these nest raiding corvids have some pretty nice colors. Also have a different call to the kiwi ones. Fell to a 0.177 CZ PCP airrifle.

    Some people do. They look too much like a rat for me.
    Their guts are full of worms but apparently it doesn't affect the meat.

    Textbook…

    We’ve pretty much eliminated the mice (only get one or two a week now), but every now and again I’ll get one of these Norway rats. Got to keep the baits fresh, for some reason they just will not take old bait.

    This rat is quite a bit heavier than it looks in the picture, the way it has curled with rigor mortis kind of disguises the size of the bloody thing.
