Montana rabbit.

I came up to visit my folks in Montana. I saw a rabbit come out behind the old barn (a log building from the early1900’s). Mom usually doesn’t want things shot in the yard, but she saw it and asked me to “take care of the yard eater.” I brought the 32-20 marlin just for fun, well it was put to use. One shot 40 yards it was done. Lunch meat made.....

    Only 40 yards, you were hitting steel at 200 with that thing. You should have backed of a few yards to give it a sporting chance :D
