i have just been given permission for vermin control (rabbits) on roughly 200 acres of land. The problem is that most of the land is open fields with limited hedgerows back stops, due to rabbit damage and most fields are high points. So using my current 22lr or 17hmr is not a viable option.
I currently have a couple of daystate air rifles, but some of the shooting will be out to about 60 to 80 yards. Do you think using a FAC air rifle would be more suitable and if so, do you think a variation to have a FAC air rifle will be a problem?
also I have another 300 acres that I have acquired which the farmer has stated he is having trouble with foxes. I know that my 17hmr would be capable of despatching foxes, but have always fancied a centre fire? Shall I put in for both or speak with my local FAO first before applying.
