    If someone wished they could do that would he be a wallaby wannabee?

    Oddly enough, Lidl, two weeks ago had kamgaroo tail diced in packs along with ostrich and wild boar. It was quite interesting.

    SRVET...this reply is straight up. Not a joke. I believe Hornady, but may be wrong, make a special 40 or similiar weight grain soft point .243" bullet. Or some other maker do. There certainly is an official Australian kangaroo head qualification target.

    If you look on the internet you'll find it. Our Forum Member John Gryphon may know more about the special bullet. But the shots are head shots. Thete's also special trucks used with refrigerator and butchery facility for the tails.

    Our local Lidl is the only supermarket in town ( 3 others ) who regularly stock Roo, Ostrich, Boar, venison, Quayle and a few other similar, good to see and they do sell a fair amount of it I think from what I gather from the staff, never seen wild rabbit or pigeon though.
