  5. I shot this rabbit afew months back with my 17 hmr,, @ 134yards,, on first inspection I thought,, good shot , until I turned it over😣,, them Hornady v-max don’t half pack a punch!!!
  6. I generally don’t shoot hares,, but when ur on land that you have gained permission to shoot,, and the farmer asks you to ,, then in my opinion you do ask your asked within reason,, and as I checked the breading season is February,,, not now🤷🏻‍♂️,, but as I said I dnt shoot hares unless asked to control them,,you never no with land owners,, you say no and that’s it your off!!! There are 2 other older guys who shoot the land aswel,, shotgun only,, and as I was walking round,, we’re they had been a week previously they had left all there empty cartridges everywhere and coke cans,,needless to say me and my son picked up around 170 empty shells🤬🤬.
  7. Hi all,, went out today with my son to zero my new optics iv fitted on my 223,,after zeroing in we decided to stay for a while,,spoke to the farmer who told me he’d seen a fox 🦊 lately and 2 nights ago had taken 1 of his cat's!!! Decided to have a look about for signs ect,, over the next few hours we managed 2 huge hares at 156 yards and 138 yards,,,around 8:30pm we were sat patiently waiting in our chosen spot,,calling the fox every so often but didn’t show,, so I thought,, my son says there it is dad,, it was sat right at the boundary about 600 yards away🙄,, I kept calling and calling got him within around 170 yards Then he turned and trotted off before I could pull the trigger,,,we moved further down the field towards were she went,,,, got into a new position and started to call again within seconds she showed herself,,, click and that was it,, over she rolled square in the chest,,@ 246yards,, needless to say we were well chuffed👍🏻🦊
  8. Well chaps I zeroed in At 100yards this afternoon after taking rewulfs advice and had a very good session with my son tagging along with me,,2 hares @ 153 yards and 136yards then at last light got this little beauty at 238 yards square in the chest,, very health aswel (vixen)

  12. Brilliant them ranges are pretty bag on wjat I’d shoot at maybe upto 250yards so if I zero it at 1” high at 100yards it will be flat shooting from 60 to 200 with the need for hold over????

  17. Hiya all,, with Boris’s new lockdown announcement last week,,are we aloud out to shoot now the rules have been slightly relaxed??? I’ll be on my own away from any public footpaths or roads,, on a large farm! Surely this is more safer than goin out meeting somebody from a different household,, that now is allowed?? Anybody have any answers? Thanks Phil.
