Last Nites Results With The N870

Recommended Posts

Out last nite to a couple of orchard perms , I arrived at 9.30 and checked zero , I intended to shoot into the wind with a slight breeze from left to right so I set zero bang on to allow for this

. One shot zero on these scopes is a god send it just saves all the messing around . Any way after the scope is set I laid up at forty yards from where I know bugs comes out from the hedge line , I didn't have to wait to long befor they started to show, and the first one went down . I then moved up to where the rabbit lay and got down into the hedge line again . The next one came out at 55 yards , and again a clean head shot put a end to it .

The hedge line on each side of the field is 350 yards , and I find moving up every time kind of gives me the edge as I'm acquiring new target with each move , and they don't seem so spooked , any way I continued up the field and then down the other side , I must admit with the wind behind me it wasn't so good ( for the simple reason my scent is carried on the wind )

Some thing to bear in mind when going out !

Any way I carried on till 12.30 and went round three times , 12 was the final count , but lost two in the hedge line

These are all getting skinned and gutted now ready for the old folks home ( the old dears love a bit of rabbit stew ) so it's a win win all round , farmer well happy , I'm happy , and so are the old uns
