Thread: A lot of Rabbits this year?

    A lot of Rabbits this year?

    Not that I am a big Rabbit shooter, but there seems to be a lot about this year, is anyone else finding an increase in their numbers? Or do you think it may have something to do with me getting a17hmr sako quad.

    Have been shooting 10-15 per night with the Hmr for nearly 3 months now, dont seem to be making a dent in the population at all, not seen a hint of mixy at all, over in this neck of the woods. Would welcome a couple of weeks off, hate the smelly things!!

    There were loads about till recently,Mixy has now started to get hold on the moors and on some of the low ground,game crops were starting to get hit badly.Talking to a few keepers they seem to say it looks like a strong strain.Time will tell.

    Not many about this area, whole hillside's deserted and look as if no rabbits ever existed, (and believe me there used to be alot!!) you don't even see any carcasses lying about as they die in the burrows, dont even shoot at rabbits now as there are so little about.
