I know its controversial but I have been asked to reduce the number of hares on a piece of land and I am needing some advice. So far I have had one buck in 3 outings and I am getting a little frustrated. The land is open very flat farmland - no hedges, its only cleared for .22rf and you can't get a vehicle on it other than a sprayer on the tramlines so I am limited to walking around the headland ( about 12" wide max!) and every hare seems to understand that they need to stay at least 200yds away - Gah. I see groups of 8+ watching me from the neighbouring farmland slap bang in the middle of a 100acre field waiting for me to go so they can go back to eating the sugar beet tops.
Has anyone else had experience of shooting this type of conditions, I will welcome any advice.
