160 Rabbits With .22 Rimfire

Recommended Posts

i thought i would put this video in the rimfire section as well as the night vision section as it crosses both categories.

we were out for nights shooting rabbits with our .22lr's mine a CZ 452 with Boyd's stock and micks a ruger 77/22

we ended up with 160 rabbits by the end of the night.

The mist kept coming and going so it made for difficult filming with night vision so apologies in advance for the odd fuzzy shot.

all the rabbits were head shot as they were going to the game dealers in the morning as soon as we had finnished.

 

 

Enjoy

Cheers

I think it would be a much more popular thread if you posted it in the lurcher section :-)

Busy old session that is !!

Thanks lads

yes we have loads of rabbits and its a right task controlling them because they are not all in one spot they are spread over hundreds if not thousands of acres.

its just a small matter of working your way round them and remembering to give each farm a fair go to keep them at a reasonable level.

but it is bloody hard work you are completely knackered in the morning.

I've seen about 5 rabbits here at home, there are usually what seems like 100 or so.

Keep finding new burrows but not much sign of use.

you don't always see them outside allot will be underground.if there is a warren or family of rabbits there will be loads but what happens is they move onto other areas because one garden cant support a family of rabbits.

bearing in mind according to Chris Packham one pair of rabbits can become after only one full year one hundred rabbits.

imagine what a problem we have got.

Hi PLEDGEY

i zero in at 52 yards i am using a CZ452 .22 Varmint and SK HP bullets a little bit more expensive but very accurate.

that usually does the trick.

Fantastic shooting guys. I thought I was doing well with this lot from a new permission this week.

This was my first visit to this one acre paddock behind the farmer's house, where the ground has been ruined by rabbits. I started off with my Magtech 7022 semi auto .22 lr and mopped up with my CZ 452 HMR. I rested on a fence and was finished in about five minutes. The hard part is collecting and paunching, You must have been at that all night. Exhausting.

      Had a little mooch last night around the stables for an hour or so.
      No soon as load the CZ I see my first target for the night, only been there 5 minutes.
      It caught sight of me and bounced off, I thought it would be well gone, but oh no.
      Popped my head around the side of the stable and there it was, sat perfectly up right no more than 20 yards away.
      I got my self positioned to shoot through the fence and then let the trigger finger go.
      Next thing thud, nice little head shot😉😊

      Thought I’d have an hour or so up the stables tonight, glad I did.
      Just creeping towards the stable and spotted my first of the night on the path.
      As I crept up he started heading towards the paddock, I crept under the fence and there he was sitting nicely minding his own business munching and then........... bang one down.
      Just as I scanned the field there was number two, a good 75 yards and again...... bang, down goes number 2.
      Two in 10 minutes of arriving.
      Thought I’d  look Over the fence through the trees and number 3 pops it’s head up, 60-70 yards and with a squeeze of the trigger..... bang, a nice little hat trick for the evening. Happy days!!😊

      Well now ,took my self and my new tool to the farm and unloaded in a likely spot .Before even unpacking saw a white butt in the distance ,quick load and rest on the gate 1 down first 5 minutes wow impressed myself .Set up and worked out how to get in  of course the rifle is longer than the hide but a bit of draped camnet sorted this, minor issue .Quick scan and a buck was about 70yds away having a play time for number 2 .By dark oclock 4 shot but only 2 worth bringing back clean of mixxy .This location has 3 warrens and seems like 2 are clear ,happy with the hide yes ,could do with with a shorter barrel  but will do for  pigeons and  for my perm as its tree lined but open fields apart from the plantation .
      And the chair is sturdy which is good for a large gentleman such as myself
