First one shooting rabbits it's the biggest waste of rabbits av seen for a long time lads
Our job on these properties is to thin the rabbits out as quickly as possible as this introduced pest does more damage in Australia than you could believe. We would have shot over 1000 rabbits that week and harvested what we needed for ourselves during the night. The properties we hunt are very large and in temperatures at this time of year being mild but still having days in excess of 30 degrees celcius you can only keep so many refrigerated. With the combination of Calici virus, Myxomatosis these animals are still way out of control in certain areas and with food handling practice requirements being out of control harvesting mass quantities of rabbits isn't a viable option any more. When we were kids we would hunt rabbits for pocket money and do quite well but try and do that now it's just not going to happen in today's society. It's a shame but that is the reality and I do share your thoughts .
