I went for a drive around the local country lanes, knocking on farm doors in search of more permission. The day was gorgeous and rabbits were out in the fields in droves.

 

Each door that I knocked on and had no reply, I posted one of my Rabbit Control cards through the letter box. I must have posted 20 cards within an hour and half.

At 1 house the owner was mowing his lawn, I enquired about permission, and was informed of who owned most of the valley but rented it out to tenants. I carried on around the valley, and posted a few more cards.

 

Then I decided to check at a farm that I'd had permission on previously, but let it lapse for over 12 months. Sure enough I was given the all clear, so I took a trip round the fields with my air rifle.

 

As I got onto the land, and followed the gully that runs right up the centre of the field, I peered over the brow and saw 20+ rabbits sat grazing. 1 was approx. 30 yards away, so I scoped her and squeezed the trigger.

 

I missed, the field came alive and around 40 rabbits ran towards the warren. Most went straight into the warren, but I saw 6 didn't. So I crept a bit closer, and scoped in on a large doe.

As I squeezed the trigger, the pellet raced through a shaft of sunlight and I could see it was going high. It pierced her ear and hit a rock behind her.

The loud made the field come alive again. Another 15 - 20 rabbits appeared out of the grass and ran straight into the warren. So I headed further up the gully to the other large warren.

 

As I approached, I saw 10 - 15 rabbits run into the warren on the steep banking, so I crept within range of the banking and sat with my back against the opposite banking, which is approx. 10 yards.

 

I was sat for about 10 minutes when a rabbit came out, ran straight up the banking and disappeared into the next field. I scanned the area and saw a brown shape about 20 yards away, I slowly raised my rifle and checked it out.

 

It was a young rabbit, about 9 week old, so I placed my mark and squeezed the trigger.

I hit her in the temple. On retrieving her found the exit wound was on her other temple.

 

10 minutes went by, and another rabbit came out of the warren. He sat staring at me, and as I raised my rifle he ran to another hole. He paused right outside it, and as I swung the rifle round to aim at him, he disappeared down the hole.

 

So I called it a day, and headed back to the car.

 

I'll be returning again very soon, and hopefully get a much better bag.
