He also shoots a lot of geese. Both species taken down with a .222 rifle. Got a couple of his geese in the freezer :-)

    Here in Norway the .22LR is the smallest caliber allowed for hunting. Air rifles are illegal for that. ANd the .22LR can only be used for animals up to the size of a hare (but is also illegal of hare).
    thats interesting mate, and i really hope improved health gets you out hunting soon. i use a .243 for deer and foxes... had a couple of foxes this year on the lamp however there arnt too many causing me problems so far.. will be a different story when lambing season starts later in the year though!

    Working on it. But it's hard when your body stab you in the guts you every time you start to get some strength back. But I refuse to start the year by whining! (Which I just did)

    I'm just back from my first one of the year near Ashby de la Zouch. For some reason, someone mentioned having to have a belated Christmas Dinner. So we did. Veg on the pressure cooker, roast spuds in the dutch oven and the turkey/pheasant/stuff/pigs in blankets were done by the landlord's Mrs at home and brought over. We even had crackers (the type you pull and biscuits for cheese). We had a superb Christmas fruit cake for pud with hot custard laced with a touch of rum for good measure!

    Can't wait for the next one!
