Had a great evening sneaking up on rabbits with my .63" flintlock. I got two rabbits for four shots. I used 80grn of Krank's black and about 32g of #6 mixed shot. I tuned the lock years ago and it still surprises me how quick it is!
On the way back I let the hound loose as night loomed.
She half heartedly chased one of those large rabbit things which i don't think is a bad thing as it keeps them alert and you never know when (and they do here) poachers might turn up!
As I watched the huge moon rise the micro lurcher runs into a few oaks and comes out coursing a rabbit! This is rare for her but she was all over it right in front of me. She whined in frustration as it kept turning but I could see she was getting closer with every turn!
On the last turn the rabbit bolted in a straight line and from nowhere this little lazy mard arsed dog put a spurt on for once and over run the rabbit!
Sometimes I wonder why I bother with her and then she does something.....although rare....that makes me grin!
