    Shooting Baboons with a Tikka T3 260

    These guys are a good watch as they hunt through their weeks vacation at a South African farm. Day two contains most of their ballistic info and they chat a bit about their Tikka.

    Put your feet up and relax while they pull of some great long range shots on monkeys, they have a good handle of the effects of wind and are easy to listen to.

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    I liked the one of shooting dassies with the PCP, being a PCP owner.

    Amuses me them walking round in jandals amongst serious thorns and possibly snakes. Mind you, in 40 degrees I can understand why

    That was interesting, but not sure I could shoot one of them. Not really my cup of tea.

    Maybe because they are a bit human like? But I understand that they need to be controlled.

    I feel a bit the same.
    But on the other hand we have thieving raping vandalizing mongrel ape like people that should be culled. At least the baboons are acting like that because they don't know any different.

    They were bloody good little films, well made. I always love all the footage around camp, the fire and cooking, banter etc. There are 3 or 4 parts to that video, so make sure you see them all.

    Is it just me or do other people find this sort of thing a bit sick. Hey we shoot heaps of stuff here, all introduced and all of it pests. I have no problem with that. But going out and shooting animals which to me look to be in great condition not skinny or diseased because there is a drought. Yeah nah. You can justify it to yourself but you wont convince me. Unfortunately the internet is full of blokes making themselves look big by killing stuff.

    Baboons are a pest. They explicitly stated this in the beginning of the video.

    When animals that can literally survive (thrive) anywhere have their natural predators removed their numbers explode and need to be controlled somehow.
    I prefer shooting them over aerial poison drops.....

    Other examples are vervet monkeys, bush pigs, porcupines, all thrive in farm/suburban environments and are extremely destructive to crops and people's livelihoods, remember a lot of farming there is subsistence and people's only good source. Predators are long gone, numbers must be controlled.

    When we start telling people what they can and can't shoot just because we don't like it we become no better than vegan animal activists or anti hunters. As long as its legal and sustainable then its all good.

    It's the same as it is here with possums and cats, the same as it is everywhere; they don't shoot them out of kindness because they are suffering, but because the healthy ones are damaging farmland/stock/pets/people/ecosystem/endangered animals
