So, someone recently has invited me to their property to assist them with rabbit control, and I’m quickly realising that I know absolutely zilch about hunting.
I understand the basics, like making sure you correctly identify, and that there is nothing behind the target, and where to shoot on the body.
I had a couple questions though:
How do you identify that the rabbit isn’t diseased before consuming it? I understand that checking the kidneys and liver is important?
Also, how do you guys manage ranging on your rifle, and distance estimation? My .22 is currently sighted for 50m.
Finally, for rabbits, what kind of rounds do you use? I have hollow point and lead nose at home currently, I’m sufficiently accurate with the hollow point, but get much better groups with the lead nose.
