1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Thank you.

    about 11 last night i decided that seeing how the weather was holding off i,d go for a shoot. wind was blowin across my shoot at about 2-3 mph. whilst walking up the field towards one of my hot spots a fox started barking his bolloxs off at me from across the field,never had that happen before, that,s it i thought no bunnies up here tonight. i slowly made my way up the hedge line, put my lamp on, and there ,about 50yds into the field sat two rabbits. the first thing i did was move closer keeping the nearest rabbit in the beam of light. i got to within 30 yds and dropped the first rabbit and went for the second , only to find it had moved. i scanned the feild and found the rabbit about 45 yds away, lined up the shot, and missed. guess i got the range wrong. i reloaded my hw100 and took a second shot , i gave it my usual 50 yd setting ,and down it went,well chuffed. i hen went round the rest of my shoot ,4 more rabbits,total tonite was 6 but the last 4 were a lot closer than the first 2...got home at about 1.15 skinned and gutted the rabbits and my dogs will enjoy them in the morning...the only question i keep asking myself is , why was the fox barking and is this a common occurence?
