    Factory fields

    Bloody hell, I knew I should have come on here the day after...soz Mac, been away again with work so hardly been on the web. Now I've to try to remember what happened 2 weeks ago and I can hardly remember last night.. I've been a real fair weather shooter this year, don't think the HW110 left the house between Nov and April....every time I went by the fields they were either flooded or covered in snow this year...and can't get the new motor covering in mud, or rabbit gore either. Anyhow, saw the sun was out, and as I drove passed one of the fields on my way home from work I spotted 6-7 rabbits basking one night so gave Mac a shout to see if he fancied a run out. Rocked up at around 8 and was sad to see Sean couldn't make it down (next time bud), after the usual scoping up we both headed out to the field, Mac one direction me the other. I had seen a few in the corner of the field, but 100 yrds plus away and they had gone by the time I got there. On looking in the paddock I saw another 3. Hop the fence (well more of a lumber over) and took my first rabbit at around 35 yrds. Hung around for Mac who arrive empty handed. I then spotted another couple and waved Mac over to have a pop. He did his usual creep up to 5 yrds and try to tickle the rabbit. One ran but he took a shot on another (I was watching through my scope) and hit the rabbit full in the head. A huge puff of fur, rabbit rocks backwards then runs into the hedge, like he'd been wacked with a stick but was otherwise ok. You can imagine the grumble from Mac. After hanging round 15 min we walked on. I'd gone back to the car to drop the first rabbit in then went to the back fields. Plenty around again down the edges of the field, managed to take another 2 at 25 and 45 yrds. I should have had more, but I hadn't got the new QD stud for the 110 yet, so no sling and no pod. I tried going prone but without the pod it was a bit of an arse on. So taking kneeling shots, but I was taking too long to steady my aim (bit rusty having been in hibernation all winter) and the rabbits were running. Not worth snatching shots. I went back to the car to wait for Mac and he had picked up 4. We'd only been out 3 hours, but I had a call at 7am the next day and Jimmy was working early too, so just called it. I'd also managed to twist my damn ankle on some rocks which was a pisser. Was grand to get back out and catch up with Mac. Having a bit of a battle with my work perm as we have a new site director and he's a bit funny on timing. They wanted us to only shoot after 12, so I've said nah, I have to work too, so you can go back to paying Mitie to do it if you want. To which he baulked and we are in negotiations over when we can get back on again, as usual, money talks. I was gutted to lose my allotment perm over the winter. I'd been getting a few and learning how to shoot in glass houses when the council had a moan and asked me to stop (council image and all that). Pointed out the liability the council had to control the rabbits, also had 90% of the allotment owners complain to the council that I was doing a good job, but I'm current playing ball until we can find a solution there too. By all accounts the rabbits are growing in number and enjoying the spring growing season... Well, here is to plenty of sun, warm nights and getting a bipod soon. Daz

    Ill stull give you a shout, the 10-15 yrds is more your range lol. One of the two sites has no greenhouses, you can stick to that one lol.

    Cheers Mark, I figure summer will be easier to tell for that, so many leaves and stuff on the ground at the mo, hard to find the poo piles. Even so, there are not many spots where you can see 30 yards unadulterated. Plus on the night, the rabbits were in the veggies and you often only have 10-15 yrds vision unobstructed. Ahh but it is all fun eh!

    So I got a call of some fella last week, asking if I would go look at his allotments. He runs two near where I live and they have lately seen a few rabbits around. I went down last Thursday in daylight to have a look. Tough spot with houses to one side and a major road to the other but he pointed out a few spots to look out for rabbits. There must be 200+ plots with loads of green houses and equipment around. I went back at night (he lives next to the allotment and I need to get him to unlock the place on a night. Spent a couple of hours up there, seen one on one allotment and took it at about 20 yrds, on the other allotment there was about 6-7 of which I took 2 before they ran off. 2 also sat in front of greenhouses so I left well alone knowing I didnt want smashed glass on my first night out. The allotments are busy and you can rarely see more than 10-20 yrds due to planting or boarders so its a different game. No way to lay up or even shoot off the pod. Still, 4 shots, 3 hits and 3 in the bag.

    Batteries

    Not sure about you lot but Ive found for the T6 lamps, the higher mA rating, the brighter the beam and the longer the battery power lasts. Ive been using 5200mA recently but saw these and thought Id try them. Not seen anything bigger than 9800mA!! Seemed legit until you read the spelling haha.

    VM, let me know how you get on with them? Decent price considering how much the old 14 shot mags were...

    Decent mate. TBH I shot 5 pellets the other night, 4 to scope up and one from 30yrds to take the rabbit. But it feels quieter, weight is a good balance, all the good stuff that the 100 had. Only gripe is the 10 shot mag vs 14. And the mag is still a little stiff but I'm sure that will ease. I love the feel of the cover too.
