Lamping Rabbits

Recommended Posts

Have been meaning to do this for a couple of days now.

After seeing an ad for a lamp man on the free shooting section on the forum. So I messaged pigeonblasterian if I could tag along with him.

So on Saturday night I met him at a meeting point and the permission was only a short drive away. Arriving at half 8, after getting wrapped up and a quick cuppa we took a walk around the permission and found a nice little spot to set up. Within 10 minutes of been there a quick scan with the lamp we saw the first rabbit at around 70 yards. Ian got himself into position and a quick shine of the lamp and the shot was taken. One bunny down. After waiting another half hour we decided to have another little walk a bit further, scanning the area every 100 yards or so. A few hours later and 6 rabbits down we decided to call it a night because the rain was starting to come down heavier. On the way back to the cars, scanning the field for that one last shot we noticed one at 60 yards away, with a safe shot, Ian got down to take the shot but by the time he was ready the lucky little rascal was on its way back into a hedge row.

 

After a cracking night with a few laughs in between, it was a reasonable bag for the amount of rabbits we saw. Would like to thank Pigeonblasterian for the experience and hope to go back out on another outing.

Will be going again soon for another session so your welcome to come anytime.

Good job the lamp did not start playing up till we were thinking of packing in.

It`s 17hmr but the rabbits were off as soon as the shot was taken.

Rabbits seemed to be lamp shy as well and not been shot for a long time

Might take 22lr next time as a lot quieter and use night-eye.
