Fun on the farm today (NZ)

Recommended Posts

You've still got a few bunnies about then.  The one thing I didn't see on my visit was the turkeys although Alan said they where about.

That’s awesome!  I can’t keep me son quite longer then 15 minutes.  

It's an ongoing battle. When we see an animal, he goes in to stealth mode, before that, he is stomping around, chatting away!  We have multiple "discussions" about it on any one day in the field!

It's been a bumper year for rabbits. More around, or at least visible in summer. Fewer now. Lots of turkeys.

nice pictures and good shooting,the boy looks pleased.

Thanks. I was shooting well yesterday. One rabbit at 50 metres, the other at 75 metres. Mid neck shots on the turkeys at 50 metres. As we were heading home, the boy spooked a rabbit which ran and stopped. It was about 40 metres away, easy shot. Reticle perfectly lined up on the bunny twice. Twice I pulled the trigger and click, no discharge. Luckiest bunny in the world!

Is it true that kiwi turkeys are not good eating in months with R’s in them?

Pretty much, but the "R" thing is a bit of a broad stroke. Basically, in the warmer months they eat bugs which taints the meat with a bitter flavour. In the colder months, they eat grass, so no bad taste.
