    Oi you South Island lot!

    Just seen on the news there are rabbits everywhere down at Moeraki. What are you lot bloody well doing? Not shooting the buggers that's for sure.
    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

    Yep was up there last year and would love to sit on top of the light house and pick a few off. Walk down the track to the rocks/penguins and the ground looks like its moving. Causing alot of damage

    You'll have to grab your .17HMR and come down for a visit @Rushy.

    Sounds like the making of a road trip. I'm sure you will have plenty of people to visit down here.

    I was hearing that news today...too populated to shoot or poison..... lock up the dogs n cats and trap the shite out of them each night.....a few hundred leghold traps around the grassy areas (if any grass left) another few hundy connibear traps over warrens should put a hell of a dent in them quick smartly...... oh but then the homespun cardigan wearing brigade will be all ''oh its cruel to the poor wee bunnies,lets feed them 1080ed carrots instead"

    Apart from a few pockets there are bugger all rabbits on the west coast.
    They are still rabbits where they used to be but they never seem to build up.

    Used to be able to go thru 150 22 rounds for a couple hours walk along some local river beds.
    Not sure what is keeping them in check.
    People say it is the virus repeating. If so, why doesn't it have the same effect in high population areas like Otago I wonder.

    wet weather kills off the wee ones in the burrows...... west coast weather should do the trick nicely.
    Im seeing rabbits around southcanterbury on farms in places not seen before,it goes in cycles and we just happen to be approaching a peak time.

    Fair point. But we always have had our weather and we used to have high numbers. Maybe once they are at a certain level the weather/floods do keep them in check.
