Just the four

Recommended Posts

Been itching to get out, especially after reading some of the write-ups on here lately . 

Ventured over to the horse paddocks permission after tea this evening. Took the hw100  .177 with the  Night-Watch gen 2 n/v and the CRS n/v rangefinder clamped on the top. The journey took about half an hour and i arrived at 9.30.Got out the car, grabbed me gear and scanned the field from the 5 bar gate, not one eye shine. Climbed the gate and made my way further into the field. Scanned the field again and still no eye shine, wait, see what looked like  rabbit features. That could only mean one thing, myxi ! Got to 36 yds away and let the pellet go, straight down. As I edged nearer to pick it up, another one popped its head above the long grass and she suffered the same fate, she was at 32 yds. Pacing up and down to find it, another one darted and stopped at 21 yds away, like a stone it dropped. Went over to retrieve it and another one at the far edge of the field 40 yds away made itself known. Half a mill over and it was lights out. All four shots were taken free standing! Out of the four rabbit's, two had myxi. The myxi ones were launched in the hedge for Mr fox and the other two were left for the owner. 

Got a confession to make Jimmy, I had to use a knife lol

Nice one mate, pitty about mixi on your perm

I've had the little permission about 7 years and it's the first time I've seen myxi on there, not that it's ever had big numbers there.

What issues were you having mate? 

Had one of those nights where everything went right. Wind was just a slight breeze in the right direction, no moonlight to light you up like Christmas tree, no injuries where a 2nd shot was needed just lights out, even managed to find the bunny's no bother in the long grass!
