1st outing with 1st shotgun
Posted 30 September 2008 - 11:30 am
the farm is teeming with crows and pigeons and there is a fairly healthy population of rabbits aswell which is always an added bonus so i was quite excited about the prospect of hunting with my new gun.
I drove down to the farm about 5pm grabbed my gun out the boot and began the long walk down in to the freshly cut wheat fields i was about 200 yards off of the fields when i could see pigeons coming and going all over the fields.
as i got closer to the fields i broke the barrels and whacked in 2 Clear pigeon cartridges it wasnt long before the 1st shot rang out.
as i was virtually on top of the fields i wanted to shoot, i caught something out the corner of my eye i had just passed through the gates to the field and about 30 yards away was a rabbit as i clicked the barrels together he stood up and made for his burrow. I quickly flicked the safety off put the bead of my shotgun on his nose as he was bounding for home and then Crack my Investarm had made its first kill.
i was over the moon with my first kill and continued on in to the field i walked around the outside of the wheat field and it was not long before i let 2 more shells off sadly these 2 pigeons were luckily saved by my poor shooting.
as the evening went on and it was getting later and later more birds were working there way over the field i was in i spied a pair of birds coming over the field i crouched in the brush and waited untill the came with in range as i popped up they tried to turn but with both barrels blazing they both fell about 25 yards away from me 2 more kills.
i decided to call it a day and started to walk back to my car just as i was leaving the wheat field a pigeon came right over my head with out a care in the world i swung round and took him down aswell.
so all in all a good evenings shooting
