    New(ish) to bunny shooting

    Hello guys n gals , i am an under-keeper at Bunwell wood shoot have been there for a few years now ,and have only just got my firearms through (finally) ,tomorrow i should be picking up my .22Lr if all goes to plan from my local firearms dealer , i have done a fair bit of .22 shooting on the estate under supervision but most of it has been at night (lamping) , however i would really like to get into the rabbits now that i can go roaming on my own and was wondering if anyone had any advice for the best way to get them , weather it be tips on getting the little sods out of the burrows or just best places to find them best rounds to use / equipment, all advice would be greatly appreciated .

    Hello mate,

    I'm pretty new to it too, but for what it's worth:

    I been using CCI segmented hollow points, which are awesome rabbit stoppers, but pricey.
    Getting good results in the evenings, just lying out in the field (perhaps using a clump of nettles or something as cover) about 60 yards from hedge / bank and picking off rabbits as they emerge.
    Very pleasant way to spend a summer evening.

    sit quietly under a tree or bush in range of a warren and wait, simple as that really, or just walk very very slowly along a hedge row

    been shooting rabbit for over 30yrs and its different every time you go out, morning is a good time but then again the next time you go you could see nothing and then the evening on the lamp could be good, then it could depend on the weather if its raining for a few days then you get a sunny one make the most of it get out there cos they dont really like the rain but you do see the odd one or two but you dont want to be sat in it anyway, i find if you find where they are feeding just get a little seat the 3 legged kind that folds bout 3 and a fishing tri-pod always cheeper than the ones for shooting infact lidl are selling one for about 5, just sit down the edge nice and still and use .22 subs best for rabbit as they are nice and quiet no crack to em and should have no problem oh dont forget the flask of coffee and a nice butty, cant beat it..............good luck fella happy bunny bashing.

    It's amazing how close you can get to wabbits when walking very, very slowly----especially when you've got a deer rifle over your shoulder!!
