No probs...New Year it is.....

Suggest you're careful if your shooting them in the garage

Danger of collateral damage

Suggest very low powered rifle or pistol zero'ed for about 10ft

P.S. If anyone else has more than they can deal with....I'm open for business.....free of course (provided I can take some home with me....

That's right, put honest bunny-bashers in the poor house, why don't you? Break my rice bowl. Impoverish my family. Starve my sweet puppy and my poor old cat. Take the roof from over our heads and the shirts off our backs.

No offense meant!
I don't charge as I do it at MY convenience, rather than being at the beck and call of the landowner (no offense meant Mr Landowner ), and I do it for the benifits I get, such as relaxation, challenge and free healthy food (if I'm lucky).

I have the utmost respect for anyone who does this for a living...

If I can be of any assistance....although you're a little far away for popping over!!!

Not many big ones but overun with young rabbits---the cat catches/eats at least one a day----always starts from the head and leaves the long last bit of the legs and the intestines. I can see she starts at the head as brains are nutritious----but I'm amazed there is no skull left

You're going to tell me there's:
a) been a population explosion.
b) they've been lulled into such a false sense of security they don't run away anymore!!!

Should get the rimfire next week.....eventually.
Out of action this weekend due to urgent dentistry....
I shall be in touch

It's got to be your aftershave or summat, I wouldn't be surprised to wake up one day to see they've managed to break down the front door and move in.

We see a few by the side of the road a couple of miles from here, riddled with myxy.

Such a sad sight.
