Not much to it. 

Spent a couple of hours with a mate on his farm shooting hares and a turkler.
And one unfortunate bunny.

Going back in the near future to take a dozen or so turkeys, just took the one gobbler today, didn't want to clean too many.

Rifle used was a CZ 455 Lux .22 LR, ranges from 25 to 75 metres.

Worked out about 10-15 Kg's of meat in the end.

    No, haha, if you look close at the rifle you'll get a sense of scale, these are not bad sized hares, biggest I heard of size wise was 15 Kg, down in the South Island.

    Yup, they're a worthy successor to the old Brno's. I really recommend them to people after a full sized .22.
    I'd wanted one since I was a young fella, so this was a 20th birthday present to myself a few years back.

    Yup, I'm a couple of years off 30. 

    That being said the irons on the CZ's would be about the best I've ever used for post and notch.
    Very visible and shoot to point of aim with 40 grain standard velocity CCI.

    I'd originally thought to scope it but it shoots so well with its irons I don't think I ever will.

    Good result. Wish my eyes were good/young enough to use irons. Glad you could get out hunting. We are still in level 4 lockdown which means no hunting damnit. Been up to Bloodhounds bare block to check the stock a couple of times. Saw at least 10 fallow deer each time. Without hunting pressure they are getting complacent. Going to level 3 tomorrow so they had better watch out........ 
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    You mean, you can not even go outdoors, away from everyone, like no human contact?

    Thanks, I was wrapped just to be out and about, Happy Hunting!  

    I've now had a trip into the Kaimanawa's skittled two years in a row, I'm hoping there are some complacent ones left by the time I make it down there haha.

    A couple of hrs very well spent mate.
    The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.

    And all for naught, even an ideologue like cindy has all but conceded that they can't eliminate the virus, or at least not without alienating their base.........which is more to the point.
