If you can see the quarry , and it can see you , why don't it fec off then
If that was the case we would all come home empty handed !
you talk about field craft T,H how close can you get to a rabbit
Me, close real close so close i could just about pick them up just ask David hear and daz or even Vizlauk or should i go on
They have all seen me do this and none of them can But all are good field craft hunters
and as for not practicing to keep your eye in
pick up a springer and do what you say as it will bite you in the ass so hard it will feck you
Shooting a pcp is so, so easy but a spring rifle not so
Iv been siting in the back ground reading this thread
and yes some of what you say is true and field craft is very important
and so is practice im diabetic and it affects my eyes so much so iv got to have glasses my eyes change from time to time so for me practice helps me and is a must
as the like of wind weather affects the way the rifle shoots
yes zero your rifle before you go shooting but th weather can change in an instant
and so dose your rifle .
And going by your way of thinking then we all should be British air gun champions no need to practice just turn up shoot the targets and walk away with the prize .
No need to practice
And going by the state of your poor rifle i don't give much for your maintenance skills ether
