I suppose that I really shouldn't complain as my permissions have been pretty much "Mixy Free" for many years now and I have had more than my fair share of rabbits off all of my permissions. However Mixy seems to have hit very hard around my area recently and there is hardly a clean rabbit to be found. I went for a walk about with the shotgun this afternoon and gave up after three shots for three rabbits, all of which had Mixy quite badly. It's looking like it could be a lean winter for rabbits for me and my elderly neighbours who happily take rifle (.22LR) head shot off my hands - I never have a shortage of pensioners/neighbours who will always take rabbits from me and enjoy eating them. (I give them to them F.O.C. and "Oven Ready" to help make their pensions stretch a little further)
How is the Mixy situation in other areas i.e. where you guys are? Could the abundance of Mixy in my area be anything to do with the milder/drier weather we have had this year?
