nest thing to do about the rabbits is get yourself 2 working ferrets and use them to bolt the rabbits from thr burrows and shoot them with a 7 1/2 28grm cartridge thats what me and my bro use good luck with the crows :thumbs:

Had some real good days on the 'blackies' with the shotgun. I use some full bodied deeks and a crow call.

You need a better hide than with pigeon, better eyes and bloody suspicious!

Good ploy is when you have shot your first to peg it out, wings spread out beak in the ground. The new arrivals, when you call, get curious and some great shooting can be had just add more 'dead' birds as with pigeon.

Best day I have had is around 30!

Good luck let me know how it goes.
