Thread: Rabbit/hare?

    Rabbit/hare?

    As most know, I'm headed to the UK to stalk deer. I'll probably be around London/Okfordshire and south. A year, or so ago, I saw a video about a guy who was culling rabbits. It was during daylight. Using a .22 he appeared to kill 5-10 or more rabbits per evening or morning. I don't know where. Is anyone aware of where this might be avaliable? thanks, capt david

    David we have rabbits just about most places,

    if you ask whoever you are stalking with they will set you up to shoot a truckload.

    Rabbits are every were mate hares are not just as common but i am sure on a lamp you will take alot more then 5-10 we have had nights of well over a hundred in the biggar area.

    Yep plenty of both around here. tend not to shoot teh hares they do very little damage on the land I shoot at. I prefer to watch them instead, theya re also an acquired taste if you decide to eat one.

    Aye! and the man that shoots a hundred hares, any night, lamp or no lamp, in the Biggar area, is some guy....


    "In Britain, the brown hare is afforded limited legal protection under the Ground Game Act (1880) and the Hares Protection Act (1911) and sale is prohibited between 1 March and 31 July. Hares are the only game species in Britain not to have a proper ‘close season’, when shooting is not allowed.

    The brown hare is a priority species for conservation in the UK and has its own Biodiversity Action Plan, with the aim of doubling the population size by 2010. Unfortunately, hare numbers in Britain are still declining and it seems highly unlikely this goal will be achieved."

    I dunno how well they did with their action plan... we're still scarce of hares, specially blue hares.
