    Tally, how many do you reckon?

    Was thinking about it last night after i shot a hare. Was going to take a pic and post it in the pest bowling thread but thought "meh i have posted a few already".

    My thought was, how many pests do you think us forum members despatch in a year as a group. It must be a pretty good amount i think, i wonder if it is worth or possible to run a tally of numbers of each pest like rabbits, hares, possums, mallard and parries.

    what do you think? perhaps there already is one?

    Wire hunt would probably do in a week what most of us would do in a year

    I think it would be 5% of members shoot 95% of the animals

    At a guess about 15000 rabbits with the guns, but I was a slack arse.

    Perazzi's on the ball here! From some of the things some people say on this forum you've gotta wonder if they've ever held a gun before!

    There is already a thread somewhere that sees daily action called "What little pesties did you bowl over today" or something like that. That's where people generally put any varminting stuff.

    I would hardly call a mallard a pest animal. so far this year I would have shot 60 rabbits though.

    I was able to bowl over just shy of 200 rabbits in 3 months while working in Otago, didn't get anything other than goats and turkeys in the north though.

    I think it would be very interesting to see some pest tallys
    We have been doing some pest control for a developer, I'm not sure of the spreadsheet thingy we use but its on the computer and we just add more info as we have it, easy to use and understand

    I have started many times to make a diary for my hunting but always fail to keep it up
    I have only recorded the pests off the farm this year for the first time
    So many pigs I've caught over the years and haven't had a camera or remembered , mates remind me from time to time... Remember that pig we got at such and such..., ah that's right

    Found a diary the other day I started a few years back
    .dogs beaten by good boar...
    . Scrub ripped up bad from 80lber
    . Good boar crossing such and such road
    Was interesting to read
