Sitting on my arse all week doing nothing, so have put my self about a bit today with the owner of my shoot. He has in formed me that someone he knew has just chucked off the team that had the rights to over 1000acres of land, woods and meadow land. So straight on the phone with my bestest posh voice and arranged a meet. I have secured the shoot on a trial basis in half an hour alone I saw a meadow that must have had 40 odd grazing bunnies. trouble is the landowner has expressed concearns about me being on my own out there and if I can on my jack seriously put any dent into the rabbit population of land that size he claims to be swamped by them. I have a mate who tags along but even so 2 guns arnt going to have much effect. So its PM time hunters and shooters for the pot, fancy giving us a hand?

Essex, need insurance obviously BASC or BASA.

Bodger, not sure how to play this. The best way would be to flush the bunnies with ferrets and pick them off.

What do you think 1000 acres is a lot of ground.

Cant wait to be honest, I'm a bit like a kid on Christmas eve
