Recommended Posts

lets also see some pics of, lamps and guns, shooting rails and platforms they use from vehicles, and general stuff people are using.........exit light, enter night!!!

 

i need a new 4x4 and was hoping to get some ideas.

This is my Defender setup... Shown in lamping trim, with sump guard, axle guard, steering guard. Off road tyres on steel wheels.

Mr Adventure is shown here in his favourite shooting position, seen traipsing around the countryside most weekends.

We operate in a pair, the driver lamping, but also use gun mounted lamps, or occasionally a separate lamper/gundog.

A very good set-up. Which, on productive land, can account for good numbers.

I only lamp on foot, but we were out shooting with a mate of Deker's in Devon/Cornwall and he had an old-model L200 which was very good, got us through some boggy ground and was great to shoot from, we had a fantastic time :)

Like Mr. L, I barely ever lamped from a vehicle. Just under 30 was my biggest bag on foot.

 

Decided to buy this little beauty;

and the first night out with it on my own, shooting from both windows with a gun mounted lamp and side lights on, this happened;

Now I shoot from it whenever the conditions allow as the customer usually gets better results. Can't fault it as a tool with the possible exception of 28mpg average, and all the gutting! :icon_eek:

 

Cheers,

 

Steve.

These are the only piccies I could find of the various set ups we tried. The Board on the quad was great (thats not me on the quad) you could use a bipon and get a rear hand on the tank.

The SJ was a few years earlier and although you cant see it in the picture, it was a soft top and it had a full cage welded into the back. the cage then had 2 sockets that a board could mount over the driver and passengers head so again you could shoot of a bipod and get a good rear rest as well. it would go anywhere, quietly.

I've Lamped from the back of Landys but you need something around you when it gets slippy (checkerplate on the floor helps)

A mule is good with a board over the cab (we put one over the bonnet as well so the driver could have a go if it was appropriate) although the air filter is right where you lean against. Kubota was probably the next best thing to the SJ.

its a defender with a sunroof fitted in the back,with a roofrack cut and fitted with ply.It's about the best setup for lamping as the driver can lamp and the rifle is always looking over the beam.

With your Ackley's, your Prac 20 and 360* vision day and night, you must be one vermin exterminator. Love the Landy.
