In the last picture you  catch a Rabbit on that Beat that is slightly Right of centre  at 6/1/2

The first picture shows a bit of use  and there will be another beat in front of it how ever faint it is, they are more visible early morning find them and press your toe  into them  so you can see them later [ Snareman ]     don't try  don't get .1200344182_mickspics101.jpg.f4d523461491b3abcca122956772af52.jpg

Set at 7 1/2 would be better👍

In the longer grass about 9-10” rabbits jump higher then people think in long grass.

also this time of year you will have young ones hopping about so you might get a few knocked,but even the ones at 7-10 will pick up the half three quarters grown.

Dont forget you marker pins😊👍
