I found a new rabbit strong hold on my walk this morning, the usual warrens I sit on have not been so active of late, partially due to me doing my job and also rabbits don't tend to come out as much this time of year, I got to the bottom of my usual route walking down through paddock after paddock, keeping low, moving slowly along the fence line when I spotted some movement about 150 yards ahead of me, as I edged closer I could see numerous rabbits milling about in a sun spot at the opening of a small wooded area thick with brush and bramble bushes. I was at a severe disadvantage, no cover between me and them, and the wind at my back. I tried to get lower and move into range but they scented me long before they saw me and bounded into cover, nothing but a flash of their white tails to taunt me. Cursing under my breath I decided to go see where they where coming from! I broke my gun to make safe whilst I navigated through the thicket, frustratingly a large rabbit bolted in front of me through the bushes but I couldn't safely make ready in time, I was also very aware of the brambles and didnt want my lovely walnut stock getting scratched up in the flurry, if only I had brought the benelli 😂 this really is rough shooting, I must've looked like a fly in a spiders web at that point all tangled in branches 😁. I eventually broke through their spikey fortress to find an enormous tree stump with almost mangrove like routes protruding from the ground, beset on all sides by rabbit holes, suffice to say I know where I'm headed first next weekend, prepared this time with my benelli and some heavy loads to punch through that thicket 💪 sod climbing through that again 😂 #roughshooting#fieldsports#hunting#hunter#12gauge#lyalvaleexpress#gameshooting#pestcontrol#countryman#conservation#basc#sussex#countrysports#jakt#2a#pewpew#shotgun#countryside
Today we did some pattern testing with a client and his Caesar Guerini Invictus V High Pheasant shotgun.
After trying a few different Game cartridges, he’d decided he liked the new Lyalvale Express Supreme Game Ultimate Power 36g 4s best for the shooting that he would be doing.
With the gun fixed at 3/4 and Full from the factory, we patterned it at 50 Yards at our Pattern Plate facility here in Wiltshire.
