You rotten B@sturd Eating such magnificant BOP's
Is that why the BASC, in its published Recommended Code Of Practice, names only the following as suitable quarry for an air rifle?
Crows,Rooks,Jackdaws, Brown Rats,Jays,Woodpigeons,Collared Doves, Grey Squirrels, Magpies,Feral Pigeons ,and Rabbits.
Note Hares are NOT on the list.
BASC published a "Recommended
Code Of Practice"
And that is exactly what it is
its what some bloke recommends, it is not law nor is it meant to be taken as word of law. Its purely a recommendation.
I don't know
I take 24 hours off the site and the place goes to tits up all the way to Hell
I was out with Dillan this evening
hoping to bop a bunny or two
I noticed a pair of ears sticking out above the crops
Could this be a Hare, too right it was, I estimated the distance to be about 40-45 yards.
I'm thinking, I know full well I can take that shot and make it clean
Did I take the shot?
No I didn't.
Why did I not take the shot?
Becuse it was in a F
G field where we did not have permission to shoot in
If it had been in any of the three fields we were working, I would have definately shot it for the table
